Listen To This Vietnamese Map Dit Girl: It's Good!. Oh thank you Golden Flower for being a beacon of fresh Vietnamese food in sauce- and old grease and fortune cookie-laden Chinatown! Golden Flower passes the test with flying colors for basic, tasty, cheap and fresh Vietnamese standards. Just look at all the straight black hair around you- my criteria for trying a new Asian place: lots of straight black hair inside. If I keep going here for lunch my dit is really going to be map. (Map Dit= Fat But in Vietnamese).
Stop by if you want Vietnamese in Chinatown. This is a good Vietnamese option if you are in the mood for Pho in Chinatown. The Pho and the BBQ Pork are prepared well here. And I really like their peanut sauce since it's thick - the way it's supposed to be - and the spring rolls are always fresh. It's a bit of a hole in the wall so the decor and the service are not fantastic - and it's quite crowded at lunch time since it's a small restaurant - but I still like to stop by. The prices are very reasonable too.
User review by tenngirl. One of the best pho's in the city hands down.
Cozy Vietnamese eatery in Chinatown wins raves for its low prices, tasty noodle soups and grilled specialties..
A popular lunchtime destination for neighborhood residents and workers, this low-key restaurant serves up steaming bowls of pho (noodle soup), flame-broiled meats and traditional Vietnamese fare in a 48-seat dining room. The interiors are sparsely decorated with only a few wall hangings and basic checked tablecloths. Vegetarians will find a number of options, including sautéed vegetable curry and hot and sour soup with bean sprouts, celery, pineapple, tomato, mushroom and bean curd.
Always good. I've been going to this place for years and it never disappoints. They specialize in pho but, the BBQ pork dishes are very good as well.
Cheap and great every time!. I really love this place. Not for the ambiance or the service, but for the great food. Their cold noodle dishes with vegies and flame-broiled meats are so good, I crave them! I walked there from the Castro the other day, just so I would be extra hungry and better able to enjoy my lunch! Such a treat.
