LOVE the food - favorites: eggplant appetizer, Tamarind fish, daikon noodles, pork chops. Sunday dinner with half priced wine bottle is a steal. We're lucky to have this place in the hood.

Expensive for a neighborhood joint

We tried Obao yesterday (in part because of its proximity to the MOMA) and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Good value and attentive service. We'll return.

I have to say I am SO impressed with how great Obao's pad kee maw is. It is SO delicious! Their Singapore mai fun is yummy too. But I've had better pho before at Vietnamese restaurants.

Regarding the two reviewers who were quarelling over the proper way to serve pho, yes, it is true that pho is typically served with the meat in the broth. HOWEVER, the meat is raw when put into the broth. It is the pipping hot broth that cooks the meat. So you are both right to an extent. The meat is served typically IN the broth. But it is placed in the broth raw, not cooked.

Food was really good. The pho is above average which is a strong compliment; both because I'm Viet, cook Viet food myself, and as there are not many places with really good pho outside of Chinatown or even outside of CA for that matter. Other food there is good as well. I have no idea what the below reviewer is talking about regarding the "proper" way to be served pho with raw meat separate. That is not the norm by any means and is not how they do it at any legit Viet restaurant anywhere; NY, CA or even Vietnam.
