I wish I had had more time to sample more of the cocktails. My favorite was the Single Knight -- lapsang souchuong tea/bourbon/orange bitters/pho syrup. This combo was unlike any other cocktail I have tasted. And then good food on top of it. Yeah it...More

You stand in line looking over the menu and when it's your turn you tell them what you want. Pay the bill, they assign you a table and your food comes out soon after. Not great, okay for lunch. very noisy

This was a very noisy hectic place. The food was not very good. The combo plate with rice had various meats that were all dry and over cooked. The papaya salad needed more flavor of lime and some heat. The price is reasonable. The line...More

I really like their train pho with all kinds of beef cuts. The soup is really good, especially the beef balls. 味道很好,性價比很高,牛肉丸很好吃,料很足,雖然外帶,但可以分開裝,河粉不會軟。非常好吃。音樂太吵。

This place is non stop with a constant queue to get in. The pho was incredibly flavorful and the chicken wings sticky spicy sweet, up there with the best. Nice buzzy vibe.

Be prepared for a wait and loud club music while you dine. This high-turnover Vietnamese restaurant in Downtown Portland (SW) is just ok. I'm not sure why it's so highly-rated. The offerings taste nothing like their namesake,that you would find in Saigon, Hanoi etc. There...More
