Would you be ok going to Koreatown? There are some decent pho places off of Western. I think the best one we've gone to is called Pho 4000... it's not as good as Little Saigon, but one of the better places in LA area. And they're open late which is a plus. Good place to go after a concert at the Wiltern/
There is one Pho restaurant that I know of on La Cienega (Absolutely Phobulous). Is it good? I have a rule about Pho Joints which is "bad pun = not very good Pho".
Almost every week there is a post about "what is the best Pho in Encino etc.". If you want the good stuff, you have to go out to the SGV (assuming Little Saigon is too far).
