My experience at this restaurant was great with the service being quick and the food tasting great. The people that work there always greet you with a smile. When you sit down you will get waters to start off with. They have a wide variety on the menu with 81 different dishes that are fresh straight from the kitchen. When I went to the restaurant, I got my food in less than 6 minutes, which is amazingly fast. I got there Pho Tie which has thin cut beef slices and beef broth with rice noodles in a giant bowl. That dish Is my favorite, and I would give it a 4.9 out of 5 stars. They are well- known for their Pho. Pho is a dish from Vietnam, however no one knows who is the inventor. This restaurant has their signature dessert which is the Vietnamese coffee. Their coffee has fresh grounded Vietnamese roast that is brewed in a French drip filter. I have never tried their coffee but I’m assuming it’s great. I would recommend that you go to this restaurant If you have a big appetite and love exquisite food.
