Great way to get your Pho fix while staying out SFO. The restaurant was fairly crowded for a Sunday night. The service was quick and food was nice. The broth was not oily and fairly favourful. Would have preferred more beef balls in the Pho Dac Bit. Rolls to start as an appetizer was a solid choice.

After arrived SFO airport we dropped by for a quick dinner. It's on a Thursday nite 8pm in which wasn't crowded ! Ordered raw beef rice noodle , 2 spices chicken yellow rice and a 3 colors drink . The portions were quite big ! The chicken rice costed 11.00 not bad! However I had been in N . , central and south Vietnam n many Vietnam restaurants and it was the first time I had it. Just curious which part of Viet it belonged to! Overall it's a nice place and economic !

So lucky we found this place. It's our go-to place to eat before heading to the airport. The food is good, well priced and super fast. Pretty much every time we have the fresh rolls, the Saigon crepe and the green papaya salad w/BBQ beef. So delicious, light and healthy. From there it's 5 mins to the airport. Always full of locals. Definitely recommend

We found this from a set of positive reviews and thought it was great. We had the scallion pancake (delicious and to be wrapped in lettuce), the garlic noodles with fried tofu, and the vegetarian pho. Large portions, delicious.

It is a very busy place but good turnover so not that long a wait. Not a wonderful setting, but friendly -- the people at the next table gave us some advice on how to eat the pancake.

If you want something fast and reasonable, this is the place to be. In terms of food, oily and salty. When I first had their five spice chicken over yellow rice, it was good. Then I tried it with noodles, stick with yellow rice. Their carpaccio was good but too much vinegar/lime and garlic not to mention, watery. Their fresh spring rolls are not bad. We always order the same entree and it's consistently the same - salty and oily. Reasonable enough!
