No. 16 is the best. It is no longer on the menu, but it is shrimps, vermicelli noodles and imperial rolls. I love to use the lettuce, noodles, cucumber, carrot and cilantro with a roll inside, dipped in fish sauce. You must try! I go there often abd it is alwats excellent!

I've been coming here since the 1980s and the food is just as good today as it was back then. Not very big...about 20 tables. But it is busy. And for good reason. The food is like artwork transferred to the plate. The Imperial Rolls were crispy but light and flavorful. My favorite dish is the Ga Cu Long. Grilled... More

The pho here is out of this world. The offer the increasingly rare... rare steak pho option. It was nice to see it on the menu here and even better when it came! Perfect sized portion, filing for both myself and my husband (we both ordered the regular size - the smallest of the two size options). The large size... More

Have only gone here for lunch, at least once a month. Go early to get a good seat and served in time to get back to work. Tends to be a bit noisy, hence the Very Good instead of Excellent. Specials are the go to. Although one of my friends always gets the Phở Bò. If I don't like the... More

This place is amazing. The shrimp appetizer with the special rice is simply the best. The crew is awesome. I come here every week and I haven't been disappointed.

Seriously, I love Vietnamese food and this was some of the best! Had the rice plate with chicken and prawns with brown rice.

I had dinner here last weekend, and while the food itself was good, the restaurant had no white wine available. They also did not have my first choice meal available. This was around 6.00pm so dinner service had just started and restaurant was not busy. Staff should have better knowledge of inventory levels so this does not happen again. I... More

The vietnamese food experience (as good or better than what we experienced in Vietnam - fancy or back streets places). Great setting (not fancy but authentic) in downtown Oakland, CA. For those who don't know it - Oakland is the Gourmet capital of the world! This is a great city and place for good food.

What a great spot to dine and enjoy Vietnamese food. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Most of our group had different choices from the menu. Food arrived for all of us in a very short space of time. All meals looked great. Everyone was pleasantly surprised with the quality and quantity of the food. Would go back again when... More

I've lived in Oakland my entire 60 years and this place is my favorite restaurant in Oakland. I've been coming since the place opened in 1984. I've never had a bad meal ever. The sautéed prawn appetizer looks a bit expensive until a large platter of beautifully sautéed prawns arrives at your table and you bite into one.OMG! The flavor... More
