    Best wings ANYWHERE! And the pho, fried oysters, lettuce wraps and basically everything else on the menu is fantastic. Wish they had a larger selection of chilled unfiltered sake but that's minor.

    A must try! Pho, spring rolls and lettuce wraps were all great. Excellent beer list. Many different kinds and flavors of Sake; lychee, pomegranate, strawberry, etc. Expect to wait a bit for a table

    This place is bomb! Last meal would be House Special Fried Rice and a side beef broth! I can die a happy woman after that! Service sucks sometimes, ignore it the food is worth it!

    Spicy garlic wings and the house fried rice are your best bet. Everything is amazing, but you'll die and go to heaven after these 2. Add some melon sake too

    Get the wings and #1 pho(real big)! With the rotating tap handle selection, Steve (the owner) keeps even the most experienced beer connoisseur guessing.

    The wings are really excellent. The pho was surprisingly good as well, but beware... the large pho is really big.

    This place rules, nice beach-y atmosphere right along the heart of OB. Great if you want to get away from the usual burrito/taco affair.

    Amazing pho. Tofu lettuce wraps are divine. Spring rolls are light and tasty. Come before 6 and do the dollar beer special. This place rocks

    The No.1 XL and fried rice are by far the favorites. Not quite the level of Pho So 1 in Simi Valley....but nobody's perfect.

    #1 Phò, wings & house special fried rice are great. I should try everything else, but I keep getting these three over and over again. Yum.

    Get your name on the list and grab a drink somewhere in the neighborhood. Wait can often be over an hour but it is worth it.

    Seafood salad was amazingly fresh, quickly served and perfectly portioned for one huge appetite or two appetizer size sharings

    Solid Asian food with a great bar vibe. Food isn't mind blowing or unique, but it's delicious and decently priced.

    Came here after seeing the place on Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives (aka DDD). Great food, but the place is very small and insanely loud. Still, would go back.

    It didn't live of to my expectations, thanks Guy Fieri. The Pho was mediocre, but the wings were great. I staff didn't seem to know what they were doing, and it was a. Little cramped inside.

    The pho is good here. If you want quiet dining, sit outside — less of a wait, but lots of flies!
