Busy spot in SoHo. Pho was very good, excellent broth and nice portion. Server was attentive and polite. Will definitely repeat.

Dinner with a friend, good food, loud tight atmosphere... overall good experience! Seating was tight and pushed toward the door despite other open seats.

They were clearly struggling to keep up with delivery orders, which affected the ambiance and food service. I felt bad for the delivery service people, who kept having come inside for updates.

It was rather noisy and they seem to be under staffed. Servers were nice but too busy to attend to us. They also didn’t seem to do a good job with logistics. Looked surprised about our reservation. Ended up putting us at a corner near the entrance. Food and ambiance were good tho.

Way too expensive for what it is. small portions. Stringy and tough meat, soggy overcooked noodles. Pho was not hot enough. I invited 3 other people for lunch and no one liked the food. I won't go back.

Servers kept interrupting conversation just to either put the food down / ask if we were done eating (when clearly the dish was still full). I also believe there was zero alcohol in the drinks we ordered - place feels shady.

The food was great, but the service was sub-par at best. Our server didn't check on us once, and they totally forgot to bring us our bill. Cool atmosphere, though!

It was a cool looking spot and a good vibe but the food was very mediocre. I got the salmon avocado vermicelli noodles and they were very fresh tasting, but it was basically just noodles over lettuce with a few things on top- definitely not worth $19. It was an OK meal but I would not go back.

The food and drink was basic and did not show off the ingredients listed. The flavors were muddled and did not have a distictive vienamese flavor, so the fusion did not work. That said, it is adorable, and the service was warm and attentive. Wish this review were more positive!

Fresh and fabulous! Ate at the bar at lunch - debated a sidewalk table - and enjoyed one of the best papaya salads I’ve had in a while. Fresh roll was spot on as well - a great find!

Super fun vibes and cute date night spot! The tables were a bit crowded so we snagged a seat at the bars and the service was quick, easy, and food was fresh.

Will def come back.

Went with a friend, it was our first time eating there. Service was better than expected, they made sure we never ran out of water, was very attentive. We ordered the taro fries, pepper steak vermicelli and the tofu veggie rice bowl. Everything was delicious, the flavors and sauces were great. I'm now obsessed with their taro fries.

Mediocre at best. There are much better options for vegetarian Vietnamese food in the city, and they don’t offer vegetarian duck.

The food was great. You should definitely make a reservation given that the place is very popular and can get crowded easily. Will be returning again :)

This is a small mom and pop restaurant. The food is fresh- Vietnamese with French influences. We had pho that was vegetarian, beef pho, and their chicken papaya salad. Everything was well made and super fresh. I would def eat here again.

Food was way below my expectations. Classic pho, the staple of all Vietnamese restaurants, was really disappointing. Even the specialty juice was sour!! I’m confounded by the amount of people who dine here. There are so many better restaurants in nearby Chinatown for half the price.

The food was overall good. It really hit the spot for a cold winter day. The Taro fries were really good. The broth was very clear yet very flavorful. Simple at it's finest.
