    Great food. Their ingredients are really fresh, their food tastes healthy.

    The best pho I've had, and the chicken curry is delicious. The decor is very tasteful, too.

    This place is a little too pricey for noodle soups( aka Pho). The portions are a little bit too small and the service was …eh… Ok. However, the sandwiches r pretty good.

    Wish I could get beyond the name of the place. Anyone who's been to Asia and had the misfortune of coming upon the delicacy of monkey brain–served with the live monkey chattled in the middle of a table for the diners to partake of–oh, god. Change the name of this restaurant.

    How can people complain about the price of the pho at this place when pho in the ID can go upwards to $7.95? The Monkey Bridge's beef pho is pretty good and filling for under $6. When the weather is this cold, pho is the only thing that soothes me. It is nicely seasoned and the bean sprouts are always fresh and crunchy.

    Absolutely delicious Vietnamese, and super affordable!!! The beers are barely 3 bucks!

    I love their dumpling soup…I crave it! The atmosphere is great, but the service is awful. I've been there many times for lunch and it seems to just get worse…but I will return…simply for the tasty soup!

    Ok I LOVE Monkey Bridge. My boyfriend and I frequent once a week at least. The service is almost always great…gets a little slow when there’s a rush. Otherwise everything is delicious, the noodle bowls are my favorite and the prices are low.

    I fear this establishment is under new management or ownership. We used to love the place but the dishes currently lack the spice and flavors that used to distinguish the cuisine there.
