Authentic Vietnamese food just a few blocks from the ocean. The entree selection is extensive and they are very good about making dietary changes if needed. Service was friendly but a little on the slow side for things coming out of the kitchen. Worth the wait though as every entree we had was perfect. Plenty of seating too.

The service was good and fast. Their hot sauce featuring lemongrass was unique. The pho was not bad at all. We had a great time!

Server was horrendous! Waited over an hour for the wrong food. All she brought us was 5 glasses of water. Needless to say we won't be back anytime soon.

Great little upscale Vietnamese place near the beach at the end of Commercial. We got Spring Rolls for appetizer. Great way to start meal and delicious peanut sauce. My wife got Beef Salad and the beef was a bit dry and chewy. Lotsa carrots and good flavor. I got the combination Pho and it was outstanding!! Really one of the... More

This charming Vietnamese Grill is located steps from the beach in bustling Lauderdale by the Sea. The spring roll appetizer is a fresh and tasty start to a meal. Each order contains two generous rolls with pork,shrimp and veggies and a yummy peanut dipping sauce. Not fried but rolled in a rice wrapper. Try the Pho. The grilled chicken is... More

For lunch I had a noodle wok meal -- chicken, rice noodles, veggies. It was so delicious. Too delicious, in fact, so that I never order anything else when I come here. :-) Service was good. The ambiance was austere but neat. Not much of a view outside. But the food is what brings me here.

Having never had Vietnamese food, I went at this tentatively as I can't eat anything spicy. All I can say is WOW!! The food was outstanding - fresh, flavorful and not spicy at all (unless you want it that way). Tons of fresh veges in the plate I had. I will definitely be giving cuisine tries in my travels. The...

My combination beef pho was easily affordable at $11.50, and a large portion; many entrees are higher. Overall, food taste was average; could have been better. As my wife put it, her lemon grass chicken ($15.50) just did not taste like lemon grass. Pleasant ambience at 10PM. But my sense is that, if busy with full tables, at the peak... More
