    Had vegetable spring rolls, Chinese eggplant bahn bao, roasted pork shoulders, and bread pudding. All was just devine! The bread pudding needed a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream though :)

    Chicken pho is the best on a chilly day. Nice variation on the traditional beef pho. Make sure you grab sambal + hoisin off the counter for your to-go lunch.

    Mary Nguyen Aregoni and Theresa Nguyen, sisters and owners of the restaurant, grew up in the biz: in Vietnam, their mother owned an open-market grocery that supplied provisions to nearby embassies.

    Rice paper-wrapped salad rolls are worth a try — they're bigger than most, plus the shredded tofu in the veggie option is highly seasoned and flavorful. Read more

    Very authentic, great food. Keep in mind that there aren't a whole lot of options for those with limited palates!

    Try the excellent pork belly rice bowl - nice, lean cut from Holland. Say they can't get lean pork belly in the Midwest.

    The black pepper tofu is terrific, even if tofu isn't your thing. Papaya salad and whole fish also hit the mark.

    I like the "hen house" sandwich. The sandwiches are not as good compare to Ba-le, but this place is it for the southside

    Close your eyes, spin, and point at the menu to order. Everything's good, you can't pick the wrong thing.

    For dinner, liked the banh bao, pork belly with rice and pho. Skip the cocktails- not good enough for $12

    They only serve a small portion of pho for dinner... And dinner is overpriced. I guess lunch is the only way to go here.

    Oaxtail Pho was awesome! Quinoa salad a bit salty and special spring rolls (duck) were tasty.

    Healthy portion of beef pho. Could be more generous with toppings: lime, basil, jalapeño, etc.
