The service and speed at which the food comes is good. There is a page for pho and a page for Chinese noodles on the menu. Many other items too. The place is comfortable and the menu diverse.

Really enjoyed this good Pho on a cold and rainy night, it warmed me right up. I recommend the beef, it's a solid, traditional choice that you can't go wrong with.

The place was filled with Asians, blacks, Caucasians. .. a true urban delight. Awesome pho in an informal atmosphere. People in and out, talking, noisy and enjoying large bowls of hot soup with fresh basil, sprouts and jalapeño. Quick (not necessarily friendly ) service. Great location with other fine food options. Perfect for MN fall or winter meal on a... More

We've tried multiple pho restaurants and this place has really tasty meat with a great texture! They served coke in a can and plenty of water. The condiments were plentiful and the bowl was amazing. I would definitely return.

The spring rolls were ok but the seafood PHO was excellent. Great service and our HUGE lunch was $25. The servings are very large. I especially liked the platter of fresh basil, bean sprouts, lime and jalepenos that accompanied the PHO.

Stopped by for a lunch on a weekday. The place was essentially empty so the service was very quick. Ordered regular pho (more than enough for one person) and was very satisfied. Not the best pho I ever ate, but not bad at all. Definitely worth a stop.

If you have a hankering for a nice warm soup, this place has lots of it. The Pho was nice and hot. It has lots of meat and noodles and spicy (I ordered it that way) It was not very expensive for a large too (just under $10)
