New Pho Restaurant near Lee Lee Market

Just went to the new Vietnamese restaurant that just opened in the Lee Lee Market complex in Dobson and Warner. Here are the pros and cons. Please consider that this restaurant just opened, so I'm sure they are still working some kinks out. We ordered the Spring rolls, Pho Tai, Spicy noodle with Pork Blood and iced coffee.
Western friendly decor (a place that you can actually bring someone on a date to). Eventually serve alcohol when they get their liquor license. Reasonable prices. Extensive menu. Great proportion of food, not too big and not too small. Good fast service and friendly staff. Clean.
Pho broth was pretty lousy, it tasted like it was sweetened with sugar. Spring rolls was rubbery mostly comprised of the wrapper and not much filling. The spicy noodle was bad, they used the same broth as the Pho (which is a no no). Iced coffee was watered down.

Although it may seem like a bad review, it really isn't. This is probably the case of new restaurant jitters or simply ordering the wrong items. We did notice that some of the dishes that other people ordered looked pretty good, curry, beef stew with french bread, etc. They have an extensive menu and it would be unreasonable to expect them to perfect everything. We plan to go back and order other things on the menu. I hope to hear what others have experienced from this place.
