This was a pleasant find. The broth for the Pho was excellent and flavorful. The curry beef in the bun had nice flavor. This is a bit of a hole in the wall, but it was pretty busy when we were there for lunch. The prices are good and we will gladly eat here again.

Below average compared to other Vietnamese restaurants in the New Orleans area. I had spring rolls with lemongrass chicken and bun (vermicelli salad) with pork. The chicken on the spring rolls was reheated, so the spring roll was served warm. The chicken did not have much lemongrass flavor. The pork was also precooked and kept in a warmer. The meat was relatively dry and not very flavorful. The bun included warm noodles, lettuce, carrots and cucumber. It did not have peanuts, cabbage and bean sprouts that are mentioned on the menu. It also did not have the green onions pictured on their website. Other restaurants usually garnish this dish with roasted onions as well. The bun came with approximately 1 tablespoon of fish sauce that didn’t have a whole lot of flavor either. I prefer at least 2 to 3 tablespoons of sauce with a little more fish sauce and lime juice flavor. We were there on a Saturday for lunch, and the staff seemed a bit sluggish. Perhaps it takes them a while to get going on the weekend?

Really nice atmosphere. You'll NEVER finish the large pho. The specials are pretty good and the value is excellent.

This was an awesome place to eat. It's been a long time since I have hade Pho. But it was very tasty and the Grilled Pork Spring Roll hit the spot!

Magasin has a wide variety of menu items. We enjoyed the grilled shrimp on rice, brisket pho and a delicious banh mi. Everything tasted great. Super fast service and easy for takeout.
