The unfortunate location doesn't serve them. While the dishes haven't always impressed, I'll return to keep them open for a quick noodle fix near Kodak HQ. p.s. the server is always friendly. —ChristineLeo

I had a nice dinner there this evening regardless of the name. My Pho had a flavorful broth, better than the Dac Hoa but not as good as Le Lemon Grass. I didn't get to see the fabled "XL" size, but as I and my dinner mates all had "L" size dishes, "XL" must be ludicrous. Also somewhat surprising was the size of the spring rolls. It's as big as two average spring rolls at the other places, but the size (probably a bit longer than an average hot dog) is kind of hard to hold. I'd recommend the place and will probably return, but the location sucks. —JohnPassaniti

I don't understand the previous comments about the alleged bad location, since it is in the center of the Greater Rochester Area. I go at night, and I never have trouble parking (legality of the parking spots chosen is a different issue). —BenMargolis

When I checked it, a big "For Lease" sign was posted at the door. I went there a number of times. Great pho soup, spring rolls, and coffee. Too bad. —RemekKocz
