Looking for a good Vietnamese restaurant in Long Beach

I'm fairly new to Long Beach and don't know of any Vietnamese restaurants in the area. I would love to be able to get a good bowl of pho without having to make the trek to Westminster. Does anyone know of a place around Belmont Shores or downtown area?
Pho 54 is fine, not great, but always crowded.
I believe Hoai Huong has new ownership. If it's the place I'm thinking of, it was quite good; maybe they have the same cooks with the new owners.
Haven't been to Saigon Express. Near LBCC? If so, I've heard good things.
I've been going to Long Beach Pho on Willow near Magnolia. I like the broth a lot.
Kevin, I believe, posted a positive review of a new Vietnamese place on the eastern end of Wardlow called Benley's. It's east of the 605. Good reviews in the papers, as well.
To my knowledge, there are no pho places in Belmont Shores or downtown LB. But there are many Vietnamese/Cambodian/Thai places on Anaheim Street.
imho the best bowl of pho to be had in long beach is at pho hong phat (formerly pho hong long) on anaheim & redondo
ive had pho at alot of places in garden grove and down anahiem st, and my favorite so far has to be sophie's on anaheim between termino/loma.
crispy fried garlic makes it!
