The food tastes okay, the neighborhood is scary and the price is not cheap. You can get a better price and better food at other Vietnamese restaurants nearby in Little Saigon like Pho 2000.

This place is my weekly routine. If only they'd open for dinner too! The Cafe Sua Da (iced Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk) is a must order and great for the asian-kopi-missing souls. I had a piping hot bowl of Pho with rare beef slices...More

We enjoyed our lunch at this local spot. Not the best neighborhood, but once you're inside, it's clean and friendly. The portions were generous and the pho was some of the best we've ever had!

Pho lovers in the San Francisco area look no further; this is the place to go. The establishment itself is clean, although it may not be a lot to look at, but once you get passed that and you remember what you are there for...More

I love this place, its a no fuss place in a bad part of town and is quite rough round the edges but the pho they serve is fantastic. Its the best pho i've had in San Fran with a great tasting broth, perfect noodles...More
