Absolutely Disgusting!! – I DEFINATLY DO NOT recommend this place at ALL!! I've had A LOT OF Vietnamese in my 28yrs of living.. This has to be the most Disgusting restaurants I've ever been too. Before going to this restaurant, I googled it.. and was STUNNED to see how many reviews this 'DUMP' had.. I was floored.. Yet I took a chance and went anyway. I don't know why I even Bother to be honest.. The Egg rolls were nasty.. I don't even think I was eating real pork.. My Lemongrass Chicken was gross!! I think the people that gave such 'HIGH' reviews, have NEVER eating Delicious Quality Vietnamese!!
It's a dive, but the pho is good – If you need to get your Pho on, this place can make your fix. Be prepared though, I echo the previous reviews; the place is a grungy dive. It starts with the cigarette smoke drifting from the back tables where it seems the shady but-we're-part-of-the-family clientele sit. There's a tv that everyone is watching, and there's the tired hostess/waitress who impatiently waits for you to place your order. In the Lonely Planet - it'd be considered a charming but no-frills, roadside family run restaurant a Westerner might think an oasis...had they'd been backpacking SE Asia for 6wks, but in the middle of Phoenix - it's a hole-in-the-wall with great pho at cheap prices.
User review by ivqueen99 – We went for lunch during the week. The woman who served us didn't even say hi, i had to flag her down to remind her to take our order quite some time after she gave us the menus. The pho was cold, the broth was cloudy, the bean sprouts were brown - like it was all left over from yesterday. There was agroup of older gentlemen at the front table obviously the owner's friends because they were more intent on serving them beer before the rest of us even got attention eventhough we were there first. To top it off, they started smoking and the owner was ok with it even though our neighbor had a baby with them.
