Completely unmarked without any signage, you could drive past this Silver Lake stripmall spot 10 times and never realize it’s a restaurant. But it is, and it’s home to very good pho. We always get the pho tai bo vien (filet mignon and beef balls) and the banh xeo (a Vietnamese crepe) as an appetizer. The narrow space is bright and modern, and usually packed with people having a good time, which makes it a solid choice for a low-key midweek date night. Cash only.
