No More Luxury in Oakland, replaced by Kang Nam Pho

My wife and I had a hankering on Sunday for ddukboki (spicy rice cakes) and quickly drove over to our favorite Korean restaurant Luxury at 44th and Telegraph. We hadn't been there for a couple of weeks and were quite surprised to see that it was now a Pho restaurant (but oddly enough, with Korean signage).

We are mourning the loss of a really affordable and unique Korean restaurant in the Telegraph strip, but I do love pho, which there is a shortage of in North Oakland and Berkeley. My Korean wife was too depressed to give the pho a try, but I was wondering if any had ventured in to try the pho and see if it was authentic or not (don't know if the place is run by Vietnamese or Korean owners).

Also, anybody know why Luxury was replaced? It seemed to enjoy decent business and was pretty full whenever we visited.
