I haven't had their Pho yet, but their noodle bowls are great. #36, Grilled beef with shrimp over sugarcane is excellent, and everything is at a reasonable price. Service is friendly and very fast. All their rolls are great too, especially the prawn imperial rolls.

Imperial rolls, phos, and lemongrass beef excellent. Waitstaff fast. Not a fancy place, but neat, clean, and with good "smells." A real value for the money. Suggest you use term "share" onless you desire the eat the complete dish.

Good food. Reasonable prices. Love their eggrolls and claypot rice. This is authentic vietnamese food, not like Camhran Bay which recently opened in the same area.

The food is good. Service was friendly. Room was unbearable on a hot day for dinner even though the restaurant was mostly empty. Overall the food was good.

Great food, great ice coffee, and good pho. It is a small restaurant, busy at lunch, you can pick your own table for dinner.

Good typical Vietnamese cuisine. Decent Pho' though it's not their specialty. Their BBQ as well as lemon grass dishes are excellent. Also try their lemon grass & chicken spring rolls.My favorite is the combination egg noddle stir fried. They've got two different menus (they look identical until you realize you can't seem to find that dish you ordered last time). Haven't figured out wether one's a dinner menu & the other is a lunch menu or vice versa. Up until Camranh Bay opened, this is the only decent Vietnamese place south of Daly City & North of Santa Clara.

The food is wonderful. I am Vietnamese and I can honestly say its one of the finest Vietnamese Restaurants I've tasted in the Peninsula.
