Parking isn't the best here if you arrive at noon but if you come anytime before noon or after, it won't be a problem.

Good for hangovers or even days when you need a nice warm bowl of soup. There are two types of noodle soup here...beef or chicken. They'll give you jalapenos and a wedge of lime...Squeeze the lime into the soup, leave the jalapeno in the sauce plate, pour some fish sauce to cover, then enjoy each bite of your yummy noodle soup with a slice of jalapeno.... for sure it'll warm up your day!!!

I had the Chicken pho (Pho Ga) and the Imperial rolls here. The pho here is really good; much better than the kind you get from chain places. A bowl of pho here cost around $5 and filled me up. The imperial rolls were a little bit on the expensive side, but they were delicious. This place definitely prides itself on its food rather than its ambiance, but that is fine. It is a great place for a quick and cheap lunch in the Tenderloin.

I walk in and am seated. Something smelled spoiled, literally. Someone handed me a menu and two minutes later a lady with a frown on her face asks me what I want, I'm still obviously looking at the menu. I say Ok because I actually can

Pros: best pho, great ice coffee, quick service

This place has the best chicken pho I have had...not loaded down with salt, instead they rely on the flavors of the chicken and spices to give it a delicately delicious taste. \r
I highly recommend this place...but be warned, busy for

Here is a true style of pho from the city of Hanoi in Vietnam. Turtle Tower helps bring back the authenticness of pho, which orginated in Hanoi. They preserve the quality and the ingredients, which make pho taste so great as it does at

Turtle Tower's chicken pho is the best in town. The owner explained to me that she uses only fresh chicken that has never been frozen, freshly made noodles and vegetables. The chicken is tender and so flavorful without much fat underneath

The soup in both the chicken and beef pho are by far the best soup broth you'll get anywhere in the city.

atmosphere lacks, but the food is SO GOOD.

Pros: soup, rice porridge

Turtle tower does Pho the northern vietnamese way--no frills with a pure broth. The noodles are made fresh everyday, and the stock is clean and exceptionally flavorful. Give it a try, this is truly the king of phos in little Saigon.

PROS: Cheap, delicous, and fresh pho.
CONS: No frills, but that's to be expected in this area.

I can't believe what the other people here are saying about this place. The Pho they serve here cannot and should not be classified as "PHO" It did not come with pho noodles and broth didn't even taste like pho. The fragrent of pho

I've read others talk about their preferences for Northern and Southern styles of Pho but they each have their virtues. TT is probably the best example of Northern. The ingredients are of the highest quality, beef so fresh it falls apart

Both excellent choices, from an excellent
