We had a large wedding party and everyone was accommodated perfectly. Food was great and huge selection of beers. They had no coffee so I had a coffee stout that was smooth and rich. Parking in rear as well as street parking. Outdoor seating available and full bar.

The hype is 5 star the actual food was not pleasant. The Phò had a very good broth, however the "old" tasting meat is just unacceptable. The appetizer spring roll(s) were made earlier in the day and not fresh and consequently it was tough and chewy and just not pleasant...and again old tasting meat in the pork. I quickly figured...

Our family of 4 took a cab over from Mission Beach to try this restaurant based on a friend's recommendation. First of all, I would NEVER recommend this restaurant for a family. The noise in the small place was at a level that I could barely tolerate and that our kids (9 and 11) shouldn't have had to tolerate. They... More

A refreshing change from the same old favors. We've been twice now and will certainly go back again. We will go on a Tuesday or Thursday next time to get the pork belly taco's.

I heard alot about this place from friends and I have to say its just meh. They said its the best pho around but if people believe that I have to question your judgement. Its okay, but its not the best or even close. However, their wings, those are really good!

Great atmosphere and beer. Staff was very friendly. Food was really good. It's a busy place so go early or have drinks while you wait.

Went to visit after seeing a show about the restaurant on TV. I was a bit disappointed as the Pho was too salty, the other noodle dish ordered was average in taste, fresh ingredients. The restaurant is pretty noisy however the service was very good.

I went with 3 of my friend on vacation from Las Vegas. None of us were impressed with the food. We even sent one item back. We waited an hour after we were told 35 mins. I wouldn't waste time or money on this place.

In fact they have two locations in OB now. Everything we had was great. Known for their soups. We also had ribs, wings, and Spring Wraps. Spring wraps were good bit I'd try other appetizers. Reasonably priced and the service was good.
