I ordered a large combination pho. It was relatively small without much meat, and the broth didn't complement the flavors well. GooglePlace - July 2017

They used to have everything burgers here, but now it's a dedicated pho here. It's relatively cheap and the tastiness punches above its weight. Vermicelli was good, so was pho. It's not going to be the most luxurious food around, but you'd be hard pressed to get as good a food for the price. GooglePlace - July 2017

Authentic and flavorful, this family-run restaurant's pho is the best that can be found in Berkeley. Both the vegetarian pho and the chicken pho were bursting with unique, hearty flavor. With both indoor and patio seating, great prices, and quick service, this restaurant is gem. GooglePlace - July 2017

Wow. Just wow. The food was super delicious and incredibly filling. I ordered the vegetarian phở and the portion was HUGE! I think I'm a pretty big eater, but there was so much food, I couldn't finish my meal even though I wanted to keep eating! The broth was rich with umami flavor, and the noodles were cooked to perfection. This is one of the most authentic places in the area, so if you're looking for a good phở place that'll please even a Vietnamese person, this is it! This restaurant is also family-owned, which I thought was really great. The owner was really friendly, and the people taking our order were really nice as well. The price was also a good selling point-- $9.50 for a huge bowl of delicious, authentic pho is awesome. The atmosphere was great as well, because it reminded me of the restaurants in Vietnam--super casual and super friendly. Overall, this is probably my favorite Vietnamese place in the Berkeley/Oakland area, and I wish I lived closer because I would frequent this restaurant. 10/10! GooglePlace - July 2017
