I checked this place on Facebook and was sooo wanting to go there and try the food. Sorry to say, it was a horrendous experience. The food was not good, but the service was lame, making the overall experience even worse. She would not crack a smile and when we asked what the beverages were, she just said: it's in... More

We were looking forward to Vietnamese food after reading the reviews. Positives were the fresh mint 'lemonade' - really delicious. We asked for 'nuoc mam' (traditional sauce) with the very fresh shrimp 'goi cuon' and were given straight fish sauce. Although we asked for the description of the 'bun nem nuong' (traditionally a salad of cooked rice noodles, fresh prawns,... More

I went to Pho yesterday for lunch with a Tico friend. The place is small but open and nicely decorated. I had excellent, fresh, tasty spring-rolls for starters. They always have a nice healthy crunch to them. They were served with a little dipping peanut sauce. Main course I had the shrimp in yellow curry with rice which was excellent... More

The pho (soup) is delicious.. The ingredients are always fresh, flavorful and filling. More seating and more wait staff. Still one of my favorites. I highly recommend the spring rolls as they are filled with fresh vegetables. The desserts are always a treat also.

I make a point of going by Pho in Santa Ana whenever I'm in Costa Rica. They really stand out for doing something different and providing high quality, tasty food with a smile and nice atmosphere. The menu caters a bit to the local attitudes about food, but there are plenty of authentic vietnamese options available. I highly recommend dropping... More

If you like Vietnamese cuisine, you'll like this restaurant. They also have interesting desserts that were impressive--even though I'm not sure they're truly Vietnamese (avocado ice cream?). Worth a visit when traffic isn't so bad on Lindora Road!
