      Banh mi is delicious as well as the spring rolls. Plenty of vegan and non vegan options.

      My wife and I stopped in for lunch the other day. It was a bit chilly but we sat out front anyway.

    We started with the Potstickers. They were a bit overfried and crunchy for my taste but they did the job. I had a Bahn Mi with Shrimp. It was good but didn't have the depth of flavor like the ones that have really stood out for me. My wife had a rice dish with beef that she enjoyed. Our server was a really nice kid but a bit reserved.

    No complaints at all but nothing that truly stood out. We'll likely try them again. Well worth a try.

      In the fall we eat pho! Was in town for the parade and this spot was rated the best for pho! It's a cute charming spot that's small inside. Their pho is good once you add the spices and hot-sauce....I've had better but it was decent. Service was great and their prices are reasonable.

      Great flavor and calm atmosphere. The hostess was really nice and the establishment was very clean. I did take out and every was already included in my bag and ready to go. Happy to have a great takeout experience because I am not 100% comfortable with dining in.

      We stopped in for bubble tea but ended up getting lunch. The service was quick and our food came out fast but it was early on Saturday like 3:30 pm. We had an order of the shrimp pho , traditional beef pho, pot stickers & shrimp & pork bites.
    The pho came with Jalapeños, mint & limes. There was also two different types of sauces in the table.

    Pho was seriously delicious priced at $11.99 for a big bowl it's a treat for sure.

      Gem of a find!  We were a group of 6 and every single person loved their food.  We all ordered 6 different items; my vegan pho was the most flavorful vegan pho I have ever had.  Very attentive and polite service too.

      The most amazing pho I've ever had. The broth is so flavorful and rich. I got today order. I  will drive an hour to get takeout again. The only thing I wish they would have given more broth. I spent over $65 and the broth container was only half way full. Sad face

      Our favorite place to get Pho. Great vegan options and great options for meat eaters. We like to eat in person because of the wonderful service but also get it to go. They are too busy for taking care of their customers.

      We were looking for a better pho option in the area as the local ones in Cary/Apex have not been the best.

    This place is located with a lot of restaurants in downtown Raleigh. Parking is limited but there is a huge parking garage behind all the restaurants.

    Service at this place is always very quick and efficient.  Only drawback would say it does not appear it's the cleanest establishment. They also do you place the bean sprouts in to the bottom of the pho. Unlike other places which place on the plate and for you to add it yourself.

    Now the pho. The broth is one of the better ones that I've had in the area. They do give you a very large portion of meat along with a very large bowl which is standard. We've also had the eggrolls which were phenomenal.

      I've been getting my pho from Anise since moving here 3 years ago. It has such great flavors! I have tried other pho places but always circle back to this place. I also love the rice platter and shrimp spring roll. The vibe inside the restaurant is also nice!

      I was very excited to try this place as I've passed by it a few times after hours downtown. Today I decided to quickly grab 2 orders of the Vegetable Spring Rolls for lunch with sweet chili sauce. I called my order in and it was ready in about 5 minutes just as I was told. After driving home and tasting the 1st bite I was extremely dissatisfied and disappointed. The outside of the spring roll appeared to be nice and crispy, however, once I bit inside the spring roll it was SO heavily breaded that the dough was very mushy inside. I could literally rub it off into the vegetables! I proceeded to contact the restaurant to let them know I was dissatisfied with the rolls... Trish or Trinn (could barely hear her as she was hesitant to give me her information) told me verbatim "Ma'am your only option is to bring the spring rolls back and we will provide you with only a 50% refund because no offense but the fact you don't like something sounds like a personal problem." and then proceeded to explain to me how spring rolls were made. I have worked in the hospitality and service industry for over 15+ years of my life, and I have never once as a server/bartender EVER debated with a guest about opinion or personal preference of how food is prepared. I explained to Trinn that it was not her place as a manager to debate with me about the proper cooking preparation of spring rolls but to simply rectify my issue as a consumer while professionally representing the establishment. I would've loved the opportunity to exchange my food or just receive a full refund as I don't live anywhere near this establishment. After being gaslit and receiving a very facetious demeanor from Trinn I decided to just dispute with my bank. I LOVE love love eating and I spare no expense for enjoying my meals, as well as having empathy and understanding to those in the service industry with me as well. So to have the manager of an establishment tell me my satisfaction and dollar holds no value once I the consumer has paid the restaurant was shocking. Highly disappointed. I would recommend some intense customer service and managerial training immediately. Also less breading on the rolls.

      I've made pho from scratch; it's good but a pain to  source (bones and meat) and to make. Anise Pho delivers a perfectly balanced bowl of pho every single time with just the right amount of additions (jalapeño, basil, spring onion, bean sprouts) to the bone broth, rice noodles, and meat you've selected. It's the only main dish I order and I'm happy every time. I find downtown parking to be quite a pain so ordering delivery of Anise Pho is my default.

      I can't believe it took me this long to try this place. Their pho is outstanding and the Bang Mi is amazing. The Banh Mi comes with a side of fries - one of the best fries I've had and the seasoning was so so good and the fries were super crunchy. I have no idea what the sauce was that came with the fries but it was pure Perfection. And the prices were very reasonable. We also tried their chicken dumplings for appetizer which were tasty. The service was outstanding. Overall I had an amazing experience. Plenty of free parking options. Will be back for sure!

      Tonight we decided to go for Vietnamese food. I'm so glad we chose this restaurant. We started with 2 bubble teas which were delicious. We had the spring rolls and shumai next. Both we're outstanding. Loved the peanut sauce. My wife had the Salad Noodle Bowl with BBQ pork. It was really fresh and my wife loved it. I got the Pho with brisket. It was absolutely amazing. The flavors were perfect.
    I would be remiss if I didn't mention the great staff. They were attentive and very friendly.
    We will definitely be eating here many times in the future. A must go.

      This was amazing service. They were very welcoming and they of course served great pho. Rare steak to be specific. For real... my girlfriend is a pho snob because she studied abroad in Vietnam (for only a few months) and she totally fell in love with the pho and service. We will be back... mainly because she thinks it's good. Although, let me be clear... I also thought it was top notch. I really hope this reaches the limit to consider this a review

      Overall average. Service wasn't that good. Took a while to get waters and they forgot our app. Husband got his dinner 5 minutes before mine arrived to the table. I got the pho with meatballs, the broth was great but the texture of the meatballs was bizarre. My husband said he'll never go back, but I'd go back if a friend wanted to go. Would get the pho again but I'd try it with the steak or briscuit next time.

      Had an absolutely amazing lunch today and had Pho with brisket and it was awesome! Perfect broth, noodles and add ins, lime and jalapeño set it off just right! I definitely will be going back again very soon! Staff was super attentive and the service was fast and top-notch!  It was so tasty, and I could've easily had two bowls! Yep
