Suspect this is a franchise within a chain of restaurants as the format is quite formulaic no matter where in the world you might be. But as this is the most popular landmark and visitor site in Hong Kong, it was good to get away from the bigger places near the tram terminus and eat in relative peace, having been served good soups, noodles, spring rolls and drinks, swiftly and courteously. All enjoyed and no left-overs!

we decided to have dinner there and wait till the huge crowed on the peak cable car get reduced. We have ordered several dishes there and all of it was served well and tasty.
The have also a couple diff. Beers from Asia as Vietnamise, Thai, European. We went with 2 small kids there and staff was very helpful to help putting tables together and if we need extra assistance.
Only one dish where the beef not properly cooked and a little to red, but for an resto on that price segment an Ok and does not kill the overage rating of it.

Had some pho here and it was not good and not authentic as well. There were no bean sprouts, it was not thin sliced beef, but rather big chunks (it was tender though), no lime and no flavor. I do not recommend this for pho heads.

What is there moving under the napkin? Yep, just ordered food and I think we're better off skipping it.

We were a bit skeptical going to a Vietnamese restaurant at such a high tourist place in Hong Kong. But it wasn't bad at all! Where I'm from, I can get it home cooked and we have pho shops everywhere so I know what's a good bowl of pho!

We ordered the beef pho. TIP! If you go during the day and they have their lunch special. Just go for it. It's supposedly their lunch size. But it comes with a coffee or a iced drink. My boyfriend ordered the regular beef pho and it looks like the same amount of food just in a larger bowl.

We're used to having veggies on the side. But they add all the veggies (basil, bean sprouts) in for you already. How do we know its northern? The noodles are thicker and my boyfriend who is Vietnamese says the employees were speaking a northern dialect.

All in all it may not be the most extravagant bowl of pho but it did have good flavor and a good fill.

1 lunch beef pho with a Vietnamese coffee, a regular beef pho and a beer came to about 33 USD. (pricier than the states but hey its HK) And they take card!
