There are better places that serve more food with the same costs.

I like the food at Red Pagoda. I've been to the Commercial location and enjoy it. The service that we got from the downtown location wasn't as good. It took longer to get our food and our pho came before the appetizer plate and when we received the appetizer plate, the food was cold. We suspected that appetizer plate had been prepared first and forgotten so that by the time we got it, it was cold.

Food was great but the service was lacking. There is no one there to greet you and my wife had to get up and ask if we could have some tea or water since they didn't even ask if we wanted anything to drink.

The Groupon I got was a good value. It includes an appetizer sampler for 2 and 2 bowls of pho noodle soup. The appetizer sampler was spectacular as it included a selection of vietnamese fried spring rolls, salad rolls, meat skewers, shrimp paste on sugar cane, etc. However, the pho noodle was below average and the soup was rather mild with a strong aftertaste of MSG. There was also a very small variety of pho noodles to choose from (I think only around 6 kinds to choose from and the soup was not very authentic). Nevertheless, the groupon deal was still bargin as only 15 bucks was paid. Service was average and can be even be commented as below avg as the server keep going back and forth of which # of pho bowl noodle that customer can choose using the deal).

Owner was reluctant to let me use my groupon, and service and ambience was poor. Will never go back.

The Groupon was a great deal, but it would have been nice if the restaurant gave us more time between the appetizers and the noodles. They came at the same time and it was hard to eat both at the same time.

I was surprised by how cinnamony the pho was, however, if that's what it takes to keep MSG out of it, then by all means!

Excellent food but the service could have been better. However, the server seemed to be new on the job (i.e. still training) and so it was understandable. Server, though, was friendly and helpful so that was a plus.

Quick service. Big round bowls for noodle broth :) affordable with groupons. Little pricy for parking.
