I read about this "top 10" Vietnamese place on TripAdvisor. This unpretentious little spot in a strip mall is a great find. I went for the Pho, but ended up with the #54. The #54 is a combination plate with lemongrass chicken, grilled pork, vermicelli...More

I have had takeout from this restaurant over a dozen times. It is consistently good, and fresh. It is always busy, but the food is done in a reasonable amount of time.

I've eaten a lot of Vietnamese food over the years- the broth in each soup here is amazing. I love the beef pho, #13 spicy hue and #14 pho sate. I really liked the hot and sour soup, but we found it a bit expensive...More

I would recommend this restaurant to you if you're looking for a great place to eat, the Pho is delicious, the place is always a bit busy, and the bubble tea is great.
