I ate there so much that the ladies nearly adopted me and would bring me little bowls of soup or oranges and always got so happy when I came in. I nominate them as important Rochester fixtures (see "Javas Dude" and "Jo An Morreale") —RochesterGuy

It has the best vietnamese /chinese barbecue food in town and the owners always welcomed me with great smile. My favorite dishes: 1) pork chop + shredded pork + steam eggs rice dish. 2) bbq por + roast duck rice dish to go. Please tip them well, I missed the old vietnamese ladies there. SO MANY nites that i went there late at nite, freezing rochester weather, hungry, and they were closing, they still let me in and serve me. —LegatoBoy

Despite the not-so-inviting exterior, the inside is bright and clean, and there were plenty of other customers there. —RachelBlumenthal

The Pho tastes like instant noodles, you'd be better off if you get those noodles at the grocery store for 30cents. The first time I ate there, I was food poisoned by almost rotten food... But that didn't teach me a lesson. The second time I went there, the dried noodles tasted TOO, TOO sour.. Maybe they added that lime juice or vinegar to get rid of that spoiling taste. So again, I would recommend you to just try the BBQed stuff they got on display only. —HuongTran

2007-08-03 09:42:02   They have the BEST bbq duck! I get cravings for it. Slow, yes, but kind and friendly service. Off street parking helps too. It's become a new favorite haunt. —JuneSylvesterWales

2007-08-31 16:46:35   Are they closed?? I went by the other day to find it dark and practically shuttered. Say it ain't so! —BrendonTroy
