I went to this place because my friends suggested it, but when I received my food I was terribly disappointed. The restaurant is not authentic, the pho was cooked improperly, and they had fed my vegetarian friend "vegetarian pho" which is impossible, since the broth is cooked with beef. Any Vietnamese person who grew up with the culture can tell you that pho is made with bo tai (raw beef that is sliced paper thin and cooked in the boiling broth as it is brought out). This pho did not have bo tai, tripe, and there was even chicken in it, despite my order being beef pho. The only thing that would make me consider going back is the service that ONE of the waiters had. The other waitress laughed at my friend's vegetarian order, which I found to be exceptionally rude and also failed to return the correct change. The price at the restaurant is not any better than other places really. One cannot say that this is the best Vietnamese restaurant in Gainesville without saying that it is the worst one as well, because in all honesty, it is the ONLY Vietnamese restaurant in gainesville.
