The decor is nice but this is not real Vietnamese. It tasted more like MSG Chinese shortcuts.
Rank #4 of 18
I ordered rare beef with beef ball noodle soup. The waitress also asked if i wanted hard or soft noodles...what?! I ordered pho, not vermicelli. I said soft. The dish came almost instantly. I know pho is delivered pretty quick in general, but when its delivered in 60 seconds or under, it's never a good sign. What I got was flattened rice noodles (ho fan in Cantonese) in a broth that wasn't even that hot. Usually, the pho broth is steaming. This was not steaming. The broth tasted so bland as if it came from a soup stock package. The beef balls tasted as if they were from a frozen package. I had to add a ton of hot sauce, salt and pepper to make it tolerable to eat.
The price is decent, it's very cheap. But you get what you pay for and in this case, I got cheap, shortcutted MSG galore pho.
