The food is delicious, friendly service, very reasonably priced. The room is very loud when they're busy, other than that there aren't many cons. One of my favorite restaurants in Ithaca.

Always a family must-do when in Ithaca. Best Pho and Vietnamese Coffee. Only a 4/5 due to tiny place, sometimes a decent wait. All round well worth the wait! Staff is great, food served promptly.

A nice variety of traditional Vietnamese foods. Food was very tasty, fresh and plentiful. The place was crowded and I had to wait a short time, but well worth it. Food is very authentic and has wonderful flavors... may go back tomorrow and try the squid!

We were visiting Ithaca and saw this place on the way. My friends ordered a bunch of dishes and everyone really liked what they ordered. Unfortunately I ordered a vegetarian Pho and it wasn't very good. However based off of what my friends said, their dishes were flavorful and plenty. The coconut based curry was especially liked by some. The... More

Just ok nothing to rave about. I thought all the dishes we ordered were very bland. Nothing like some of the more authentic Vietnamese we've had before in our travels.

Excellent and inexpensive Vietnamese cuisine. Somebody suggested that it was one of the best places to eat in Ithaca. And I agree with that. Service was quick. Food is nice. We had Vietnamese Steak and Lemon Basil Stir Fr. Restaurant was packed and there was a long line of people waiting to get in, which is pretty good indicator of... More
