Steven Hernandez, another customer, came in on Friday morning for some pho. He said he was disappointed to hear of the closure made sure to come for the reopening.

"I've eaten at other places but this is my favorite. When I found out they were closing I was like 'Wow what am I going to do now'," He said.

The manager added during the time they were closed they took advantage of the downtime to do a few updates to the building.
