pho-nomenally BAD! – Anyone who thinks Pho Lemongrass is authentic Vietnamese food has not tried real Vietnamese food. Being from Southern California (home of Little Saigon, the largest Viet community outside of Vietnam), I knew I was gonna be a tough critic when I walked in the door. But this place is inferior by ANY standard...the pho lacked flavor, tasted extremely bland, the peanut sauce tasted pasty and watered down, and the noodles tasted like Top Ramen. Unless you enjoy bland suburban food, skip this joint and go to Pho Pasteur instead!
Beware the Mai Tai – So yummy you drink it fast!
10 minutes later you realize just how much booze was in it!
Crunchy shrimp with an amazing tomato based sweet and sour sauce is to die for.
i dig this place – i can't pretend to be particularly well-versed in vietnamese cuisine, so can't give you any insight on authenticity--but the food is TASTY... and fun. (you get to make your own rice paper wraps -- read the editorial review.) value is decent: you get healthy portions of healthy food--but the kicker thats makes this place really chill are the wait staff. they're courteous and capable and were totally nice about a friend and i waiting around without ordering anything for a whole hour as we waited for a third friend to show--even when we cut it really fine and ordered about 10 min before the kitchen closed. wow. that's what i call nice wait staff!
