This place is great. The Banh Mi is absolutely fantastic, and all the other dishes I’ve tried have been great. The online ordering system is really good too even during peak hours. Maybe the only thing to be aware of is that parking can be difficult to find when it’s busy, but just keep that in mind before you go.

Fantastic- Been here a few times and have tried a few of their pho soups and appetizers. The food is very flavorful and is reasonably priced. I think the restaurant would do extremely well in a higher trafficked location.

Food here is generally good and its a clean, air conditioned place with wifi. I also am thankful that they have plant based/vegan options on the menu. This is not terribly common for Vietnamese restaurants! One thing that is missing, and leaving my taste buds wanting is cilantro. I have never had a banh mi or vermicelli bowl with no cilantro? Maybe its a regional thing. Or perhaps they are catering to southern taste buds. But I vote cilantro!

(3rd time there) Just wow. I don’t know how I never saw this place before. It’s a little hidden but the food is so good! Give it a try.

5 stars because it is probably the only pho place in this area. It was decently tasty, not the most authentic flavors. HOWEVER, it definitely satisfied my pho craving, and I would definitely come back.

I got the Durham Deluxe Pho and it was actually pretty good. I would 100% come here again. I’ve definitely had better pho, but it satisfied my pho craving.

Restaurant seems overpriced for the amount of food. They could def do better. General Tso Chicken (Half eaten): Good Flavor and chicken was very crispy even after a 15 min drive home. Vegetables were overcooked and not really there. Look at previous reviews to see the amount (8/10) Char-grilled Pork Vermicelli: Pork was super tender and marinated well. (7/10) Honey Glazed Shrimp Vermicelli Plate: only 4 shrimp, for the price I expected more. Not worth the price (5/10) Singapore Noodles: absolutely no flavor what so ever. (2/10)

Broth was very good. A decent serving size. Quick service (on a quiet Sunday afternoon). Great location, pleasant interior. Just a little saddened by the small amount of mint, bean sprouts and bay leaves given compared to what I am used to...but I am sure they would be more than willing to give more if asked. Also, I could be wrong, but it says chicken egg rolls on the menu...but the outside wrapper is rice wrappers? Regardless it tastes great!

Cute stop off the highway. Hot broth with delicious authentic flavor. Plenty of seating outside and inside. Decent price and great services.

Had the Singapore noodles and the deluxe pho. Both were very good. As one who has had pho in Vietnam I can say that this comes very close to authentic. Definitely gonna stop here again.
