Simple place for Simple Pleasures. Dave's the Owner ...I was thinking his wife was his daughter! [wink wink] Those are Great people that remember who their customers are. The place is clean and the Basil comes with every Bowl of Pho or simply ask for it. Fresh Jalapenos with the generous sprigs of Basil. Spring Roll is good too. I've tried to pay for the Tea and was told no one pays for tea there. That's so heart warming it almost puts a tear in my eye and then they exclaim their pride in their Vietnamese Tea. As well they should. Everything I have eaten there tastes so good and when I leave no one can remember what I ordered so I'm left to the Honor system. I couldn't ask for a better restaurant.
I must admit I avoided the place driving past thinking "what a dive". Then the first time I went in, there was hardly a place to sit but soon there was. Can't recommend it enough. You've been told. Once you experience that you'll want more. My coworkers and I cannot say enough good things about the place! We feel so good inside everytime we leave there it makes for a pleasant day thereafter!

Pros: Best People in the industry found here

Cons: Low overhead but I think anything ele would get in the way!

I love vietnamese food, but was disapointed with this one. Dave the owner is a nice friendly guy, but needs to use better ingredients. The Pho is fine, but I've had better. The spring rolls were a major disapointment, they had only iceberg lettuce for greens, no basil, Thai parsley, etc. There are better places around.

About 18 months ago I had Pho for the first time. I loved the stuff and since have had it at least once per week, often having it as many as 3 times in a week. I got turned on to this place about early Spring by my girlfriend who worked nearby. If it wasn't for her working near there I never would have noticed it despite driving through the area many times.

You gotta try #12! (Either Sweet and Spicy or the Sour and Spicy - I forget which it is called because I've had it so many times now I don't even look at the menu, and the personable owner Dave knows me and most customers by name). #12 has the best broth I've ever had hands down. I live in Seattle, have 1 or 2 places in downtown area that I think are really good, visit regularly and stand above the rest. But neither holds a torch to this place in Tukwila. Well worth driving through Seattle, past all the other places in town and down to South Center area for a bowl of this deliciousness.

I've had a few other menu items and nothing disappoints. But the truth is the Pho is leaps and bounds better than any other I've had in Seattle. You at least gotta try it once for yourself.

Tru!

You would only know of this place if you worked near by or if you were lucky enough for someone to bring you here. Great food, great service, and affordable prices, what more could you want?! The food is excellant, better than any Vietnamese restaurant I've ever been to. The food is fresh, and the broths for the pho is made from scratch; savory and spiced perfectly. Their grilled lime/chili marinated prawns are mouthwatering, grilled skewered chicken is perfect, and their fresh spring rolls are just that, fresh and delicious. Not only is the food excellent, but the service is outstanding. The owners (husband and wife team)are so warm and sweet. Any time I special order something, they remember the next time without me having to say anything, which I think is quite amazing service. I wish this place wasn't so hidden so they would receive the recogniton they deserve.

This is a small restaurant located in an out of the way area in a business district. It is owner operated and has very good service. The food is also very good.

The restaurant is always very clean. They are open for breakfast & lunch and if you like Pho it is very good but also try their vermicelli that is also very good.

PROS: Great food
CONS: They don't deliver
