Driving across the USA. Found fresh veggies and well prepared viet pancake. Love to eat good Vietnamese food on road trips. Tasty but not heavy. This was a really good dinner stop

I admit that I was new to pho, and went with a friend who comes here regularly. I ordered the pho and was so amazed by the flavor. I love how you add ingredients yourself; it is so fresh. The beef is cut very thin and cooks in the sauce, so it perfectly done. I do add a liberal about... More

This is the real deal. The food never disappoints. I ordered shrimp and stir fried noodles and my husband ordered a soup with chicken and shrimp with noodles. We both had enough food for another meal. My husband's soup included a plate of fresh basil, cilantro, beans sprouts, and jalapeño pepper. The broth was very tasty. My dish was equally... More

The restaurant has a small family atmosphere. With big bowls of PHO offered up. The food came very fast and waiters were helpful.

We needed a quick place to eat while passing through Kansas city via I-70 and we can't stand fast food. We like eating food that will nourish our bodies. This place was about 2 minutes off the highway, tucked in a neighborhood, easy to get to. The service was quick and basic. don't expect to get pampered. They did advise... More

I ordered ship and sweet potato- and it was just four shrimp and a bunch of fries. In Chicago, you get delicious clusters. It was disappointing. I had the chicken and noodle (not soup) and it wasn't terribly good as well. Very greasy and only had chicken, noodles and a few bean sprouts (I am used to the same dish... More

I had the M8. Stir-Fried egg noodles with shrimp, chicken and beef in special house sauce. It was very good, moist and good flavor. The people there are very nice and welcoming. The only reason I gave it 4 starts instead of 5 in because I literally only had one piece of shrimp in my meal.

There is nothing to call out this restaurant except good food. The neighborhood is almost all residential and I recommend driving or taking a cab (we arranged with our cabbie to be on call after we ate). For 4 people we had 2 orders of pho bo vien (rice noodle soup with beef meatballs plus the usual herbs, sprouts, peppers).... More
