It's alright - no great shakes as far as I'm concerned, but I am guessing that my impression is not so great due to this being located on 6th Street. Having zany street people come in and disturb you while you eat kind of detracts from the food.
Great food, good prices, easy takeout, not for an evening out with the kids, parking all bad. Best for take out lunch or dinner, if you're in the downtown area. Easy walk from SOMA, TL, and Civic Center.
One of the best places for Vietnamese food, although the dining experience is not. The street is usually dirty, more often than not you will see cockroaches in the restaurant while you are eating, but if you can deal with this the food is incredible. I usually order take out and I highly recommend the Veggie Fried Rice...
It is one of their favorite restaurants for everyone who has ever eaten there.
But, the neighborhood has the worst asspects (and convenience) of a central urban location.
You will be treated to flavors that will keep you coming back again and again.
Sketchy. Dicey. Rough. All are apt words to describe the neighborhood [especially after dark] for Marina folk and their bridge and tunnel breatheren but for true San Franciscans heading to this jewel any time of day or night will not be a problem. The food is delicious, the service is coldly efficient and the decor is unremarkable. Perfect. On a cold day in SF I relish having a bowl of this restaurants Pho [traditional Vietnamese soup].
