Very Limited Vegan Options

Per server, the only vegan options was Pho (vegetable or tofu) or the vermicelli. We were told that everything else is made with either fish or oyster sauce. We asked if we could get one of the stir-fry dishes like broccoli with garlic sauce and were told even all the stir fries had fish or oyster sauce even if a different sauce was listed. We were told both the drunken noodles and curries were reported as not vagan friendly due to fish/oyster sauce. The server even checked with chef.

The Pho was good, the vermicelli quite bland to which we added hot sauce.

Overall, really disappointing considering all the yummy looking stir fries and other predominately veggie/ noodle based dishes that there were essentially only 2 things we could chose from.

Pros: Prices and serving size

Cons: Limited vegan options

Hooked on Vegan Pho!

Many vegan options, just not necessarily listed that way on menu. Love their vegan Pho: get the veggie pho with veggie broth and ask them to add tofu (steamed or fried)!

My wife gets sweet and sour tofu (they'll sub tofu for S & S chicken listed on menu). Always have been happy to do it.

Pros: Will add/sub tofu for many of their dishes

Cons: Menu doesn't overtly list vegan options

Great vegan pho!

At first the waitstaff was a little short with us when we asked about vegan options. We were abruptly told “just veggie pho” was all we could get but then our server came back over and showed us some other meals that could be prepared vegan and was very nice and helpful. The vegetable pho was amazing! It was a huge portion that neither of us could finish and the soup was seasoned perfectly and delicious.

The interior of the restaurant was very nice. There are huge windows that let light in and allow you to watch passerby out on the street. There’s a full bar and two sections of the restaurant that I saw. A large group came in while we were there and they were able to accommodate them as the restaurant is spacious. Our receipt said vegan and clear veg broth on it. We’d highly recommended this place!

Pros: Delicious vegan pho, Nice atmosphere , Accessible downtown location

Cons: Meat heavy menu
