    I love the Beef Pho so much I can't bring myself to order anything else. Also, I like to eat raw jalapeños and I only get medium hot here. So be brave or outright crazy to get hot or Thai hot.

    In response to someone's claim that this is their favorite beef pho: I second that. One of the most flavorful broths I've ever had! They could be a bit more generous with toppings. But damn. It's good

    Like sweet coffee or tea? Try the Thai iced coffee or Thai iced tea! My favorites. No refills, so drink slow and savor it.

    Faves are basil or ginger stir fry with chicken. I get medium spice at most places but can only do Mild here. Be warned! :)

    Very good Thai restaurant. I like spicy food and I thought the medium spice was just right (next time I'll try the hot)

    Family-owned. Secret recipes. Great staff. Overpriced for the entire package. Paid $25 for two entrees in a simple setting.

    The Pad Thai Chicken will rock your face off! Go easy on the spice level though, 'hot' could kill you if you're not careful...
