I went here Saturday for lunch with family and it was pretty good. I ordered an avocado smoothie and pho dac biet (basically everything with pho). On the menu it includes pictures of each pho type and pictures of the type of meat that will be in the pho so that you can get a gist of what it'll look like and so you aren't surprised when ordering. It's great for non-Vietnamese people because it's menu is in English and includes very detailed descriptions and pictures in case someone isn't completely sure of what they're ordering. The food came out relatively quickly and there wasn't a long wait. It's clean as well and the staff there are nice and patient.The only thing is that there are quite a bit of bugs and flies since the doors are always opening and closing all the time. So if that bothers you, then you might not want to sit near the windows and more closer towards the center of the restaurant. In addition to this, the location is near a lot of other pho places so when compared to other places in this area, it's not perfect. But it's still great nevertheless!
Bun Rieu is probably one of my favorite Vietnamese dishes if I'm not in the mood for Pho. Sadly, not a lot of restaurants make it since it's such a special dish. I was glad to see it on the menu here so I had to order it! It was delicious and tasted just how a Bun Rieu should taste - plump vermicelli noodles with a nice hot crab and tomato broth with pieces of crab cake and fried tofu. I always add the basil and the jalapenos in too! So glad they had this on the menu! (I also recommend the bun bo hue if you like spicy noodles). I also ordered the summer rolls (the fresh spring rolls (Goi cuon) with shrimp) and it was really disappointing so I would skip out on that. My friends had the chicken pho and the bun bo hue and they loved their dishes. They also ordered a vietnamese coffee with the condensed milk and an iced tea and they both enjoyed that as well. Overall, the restaurant is fairly big, clean, and spacious and the service was good. Food was good and there is plenty of parking! Oh also, they accept Credit cards!
This was my first time to have Pho and it was quite good. I was surprised to taste cloves in the Tai Bo Vien pho, and it was the perfect amount...not too overpowering. We also ordered Mi Xao Don Thap Cam which satisfies the crunch. All food items seem to come super sized! We couldn't even finish off half of... More
