  • S JBest pho in Portland at a great price!

  • Leo H.The plate portioning is surprisingly filling. The only gripe I have is their seating system. Worth the wait if you're going with a party of 3 or more.

  • Nicole DWe had the Pork Bahn Mi, crispy veggie rolls & the Steak & Meatball Pho. All 3 were top notch. Ambiance was just as good as the food, with some old school hip hop bumpin on the stereo! Loved it A++
