This small LGBT owned establishment offers fresh, simple Vietnamese food. Come here for brunch with unlimited mimosas in the courtyard. Can't go wrong here for healthy fresh choices.

The place was full of people in costumes But the service was great. We enjoyed the Pho we went back again before we left... More

This place is no longer called Unphogettable - it is now called Phonomenal. The best thing about this restaurant is the outdoor courtyard patio. On a nice day it is lovely. The Santa Monica Boulevard people watching is excellent too! Service is pleasant and efficient. I had the rice vermicelli with grilled chicken - it was excellent. The char-grilled chicken... More

Nice Vietnamese food- almost tasted like being back in Vietnam. Good service but was a bit on pricey side.

A terrible experience. As vegetarians, we made it politely clear from the outset that we would like there to be no fish or meat products in any of the dishes. Despite this, the manager served us a fish starter. The embarrassed waiter removed it and returned with the tofu we ordered. However, when it came to paying the bill we... More

Excellent Vietnamese food. The Beef Pho will certainly have me returning when next in LA. Several locals at adjoining tables told us it i the best Pho in LA. Service was excellent.

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
