I don't even know why I write a review since there are more than 400 already, which goes to show that the place is popular, successful, and deserves it. Why 4? Well, this is a Pho soup place, com'on! I can't put 5 stars, but I'd gladly put 4.5 if I could (When will yelp allow half stars? Life is subtle, it sometimes requires half measures!)Been many times, Pho Thai soup is great, I occasionally order spring rolls, which are great too, inexpensive and you walk out of there in good shape. One thing I noticed too is that the sprouts they hand you with the soup are actually very fresh, a rare sighting in Pho places. :)In a nutshell, this is a Pho place like many others in North America, but one that manages to be consistent in quality, a feature not so common to even other very good restaurants.
A friend and I stopped in one evening to try out one of the many Pho/Vietnamese restaurants on and around Mills Ave. We each started out with an appetizer. I chose the vegetable summer rolls and my friend got the roasted Quails. My summer rolls were very good! There was an Asian hot sauce at the table that paired nicely with the summer rolls. All around fresh & delicious! The roasted quails came out and they looked fairly good. I tried one of the little birds and what it was like eating a chicken. The flavor profile was okay, but I found myself using a lot of the hot sauce. Entree: I chose a Vermicelli with spicy vegetables and shrimp! Overall, it was amazing and I would absolutely get it again. The Vermicelli was cooked correctly and the dish flavoring was exactly what I was looking for. All in all, the service was pretty good and the venue had a mostly younger crowd. The food was what I was looking for and I intend to return again someday!
