A gem of a restaurant in downtown area of Raleigh.
Authentic food of Vietnam. You have to try the fresh Spring rolls

Great service! The servers were attentive and gave clear instruction on how to park as well when they saw me pull up in the front. (parking garage in the back) I went during triangle restaurant week and enjoyed a wonderful banhmi sandwich with seasoned fries and pho soup. I love how they gave the soup with the dry bread sandwich.

Always good food, from sandwiches to soup to salad bowls and bubble tea. Spring rolls on the menu are actually summer rolls (unfried), delicious either way. Free parking in gargage under building - give the your space number and they do their magic.

Great Pho - broth was outstanding and reminded me of the Pho I enjoyed on a trip to Vietnam - excellent flavor and aroma. I felt like I was back in Vietnam.

With a stipulated dress code of Business Casual, I'd expected more quality than is present. Anise Pho is more of a take-away than an eat-in and we were celebrating a birthday so the fit was not good. The meals were large but the Pho a little light on ingredients. Flavors were very good. The recommendation is for the food not the restaurant.

I don't write this to be ugly, but my friends and I really did have a bad experience here. There were probably 2 other tables in the restaurant at the time, yet it took a very long time to be greeted by our waitress. We all ordered water and drinks to begin. She forgot to bring out two of the drinks and didn't acknowledge that until we brought it up to her again. We also ordered two separate orders of potstickers, but she only rung in one apparently, since we never got the vegan option for our friend that doesn't eat meat. We didn't complain because our Pho showed up almost immediately after we received the order of pork potstickers. They had brought out one wrong pho dish as well.
With all of that being said, the waitress could have been new/inexperienced, so I don't want to discredit them entirely. I will say the food that did come out was all very delicious and I was satisfied with the quality and amount.

Everything was perfect! I’ve had many and many dining experience with Vietnamese restaurants and this one by far is the best one in the Triangle Area. Food was excellent and the service was even better! It was our 3rd time being back and this time we brought some friends. It was their 1st time trying Vietnamese food and they enjoyed very much! You bet this’ll be our hangout spot.

I went for restaurant week and I wasn’t impressed. It was just OK. Can’t say I would return or recommend to anyone.

Had to be one of the nicest places I have been to in awhile. From first glance it seems like it would be a decent restaurant but the food and courtesy nature of the staff far exceeded my expectations. I'm glad I went and I will be going back in the future.
