We actually went to Pho LA on the recommendation of the Citysearch review. We have been back many times and it is our favorite Pho restaurant in LA. A recently expanded menu still maintains a focused selection of reasonably priced, delicious soups, great for dining in or taking out. Huge portions are big enough for two. The menu does include a spring-rolls appetizer, but take our advise and stick to the soup. The service is always friendly and accomodating. The only real drag is that on weekends you are forced to use their annoying valet parkers, even if you are just picking up a to go order. I don't know about you, but I hate paying 2 dollars for a 10 minute stay.
Pros: Value, Great Soup, Friendly service
Cons: Tiny parking lot, mandatory valet
