This place is solid. The prices are a bit higher now that they are on the east bank, but the restaurant is nicer. I had the tofu vermicelli this go around and it was enjoyable. The coffee, also hit the spot, and my friend enjoyed her pho. I'm only taking a star off because it's harder to pay more for pho in a city full of it. Especially when you have to pay for street parking.

I like this Americanize idea how they run this place unlike most tradition Vietnamese restaurant. You wait in line, order at cashier, pay, get your #, find your good spot and wait just like you going to an American fast food joint. This is good for fast in and out without having to wait to get your bill. Although they seems to make less tips this way as I don't see much people tips for waiter. My rating reflects to the chef and cashier, I cashier wasn't rude to me but could of improve a bit with a happy welcoming face as her face didn't feel happy at all. But it's all comes down to the food quality. I read the reviews, told myself not to try base on the negative reviews from many those of us traditional Vietnamese. But I end up gave them a chance! The Pho was indeed lack of flavor and very salty, I was only able to sip the soup less than 10 spoons. I ordered Large Special #7, this seems to be pretty much Pho in american style! The meat, cut and slicing are way different, by looking at the photos of the worker there. I'm 100% sure the chef is not Vietnamese. I would definitely come back for that different taste if they improve on the soup and less salty, as some likes to use chilly and hoisin sauce which do has salt in it make it even saltier. NOTE! Those of you real Asian and dining with your older generation! Do not dine here! You'll be disappointed.

Ok you want a quick hot, cheap lunch? Well this is the place. Go in, pay, get lunch, love the rice noodles, eat then go back to work
