I eat in this restaurant at least once a week and I have never had a complaint about the food.They are open until 3 am every night.The food is even less expensive late night...check out their late night menu.The owner here strives to make everyone feel comfortable and makes sure his food is always fresh.I dont think that this place should be compared to other Vietnamese restaurants,it is in a class by itself.

The food was okay. I went here because the real saigons on El Cajon Blvd was closed. I thought they might be the same owners, Wrong! The food was 2x's as expensive with half the portions. Besides that, it wasn't as delicious. It's nice if you want to impress a date(better than them thinking your a psycho for going to a hole in the wall at any other pho shop) but not worth it at all. It has better service and embiance but not worth the hike. All I had was the spring rolls and pho.

Came here with a couple of friends and the atmosphere is nice. Food is pretty decent - a good variety. People in our group ordered the 360 Filet mignon and said it was good. Heard good reviews for the red curry. I had the crunchy noodles with seafood and vegetables. I liked it, but I would probably prefer to eat it at a more authentic restaurant. Overall a nice place to go. Also it's open late so that's always a plus.

Affordable food downtown. Not as authentic but hey the food tastes good enough that I would definitely come back here with family or friends to enjoy some ameri-viet food.

don't get me wrong. i like the food here. the staff are very nice and professional. but i don't feel like i get the true Vietnamese dinning experience when i'm here. this is a great place to introduce yourself to Vietnamese food.

This is one of the higher ends of Vietnamese food. They have the traditional Pho bowls but its a bit more costly than the typical hole in the wall places. They also have uniformed waiters dressed in traditional Vietnamese clothing which is unusual for a Vietnamese restaurant. They have other entrees that are great and worth a try...Highly reccommend this place.

In Short
Unlike many of the casual pho noodle eateries in the city, this upscale restaurant takes authentic Vietnamese cuisine to a higher level with specialties like creamy basil fish, smoked oyster omelette and 360-degree beef,…
