NOTES

  • Everything was adequate, but not amazing.
  • The waitress was careful to mention that the broth is more subtle than at most other pho restaurants.
  • I (Miko) strongly prefer the Tai rare steak to the “filet mignon” in pho.  It’s too soft and thick.
  • Egg rolls are pretty delish, but not any more delish than at other places.
  • Lovely selection of alcohol.
  • You get free refills for fountain drinks.  Very rare for pho restaurants!
