Really good Vietnamese restaurant with large servings and low prices. As the main dining room was too busy for me, I took my dishes away to my hostel. Service was really fast once ordered and everything was in the bag (spoon, napkins, sticks...). Highly appreciated!

Located in Boston Chinatown so didn't set a high expectation. Food Taste - ordered #51 Pork and Egg Roll Rice Vermicelli 9.95$US , it was worth the price ! Thin slices of BBQ pork with a crispy egg roll along with some fish sauce to mix with the vermicelli. Definitely a good combo with the high temperature in Boston !... More

Really fresh thai basil and sprouts, great beef noodles, efficient staff, something healthy to eat in the midst of all the other fast food.

The ordered Vietnamese Spring Rolls and Pho were both tasty. Service was good, too. Great place to go for a quick and flavorful, but inexpensive lunch. Nice gesture: Complimentary tea for every guest.

My sister and I had just returned from our whale watching trip and wanted something to eat but wanted to get away from the crowds on the waterfront. We came across this place as we were heading to the subway and saw the awards etc in the window and gave it a try. Not only was the food fantastic but... More

Huge portions for cheap. Very fresh. Shared the chicken salad which was flavorful and crunchy. Pad thai chicken large and a bit spicy. Spring rolls with nice peanut sauce. Casual tables, large space and quick, not super friendly service. Stopped late after a ballgame and felt very safe.

I have been coming year for the better part of 10 years and always order the pho. Simply the best around Boston. Waitstaff is not overly friendly, but the food makes up for it.

Ate here twice. It's very popular with the locals. Good, fresh, Vietnamese food very, very reasonable. Quick service. Huge bowls of noodle soup if you want, huge menu. Vegetables very fresh. Great place to eat -- it's not fancy.

It was chilly outside and Pho sounded perfect. When we walked in we worried that take out would take ages because place was full. In five minutes we had a giant comtainer of Pho Ga and egg rolls. Our apartment is right across the street so we were soon enjoying everything. I really liked the broth and everything else was... More

Staying in Chinatown
