I always have a soft spot for a big tasty cheap bowl of soup, and willing to overlook the witch that lives there until the last time. too many other options available, so we are officially done with this place. I don't know many businesses where you can be so nasty to the people that spend their money with you... More

Server didn't speak English so she couldn't answer questions about the menu. She made a mistake with our order. There were 6 of us and the server and/or cook screwed up 3 of our orders. My food didn't taste good.

The staff for a little bit hard to communicate with. Maybe because they are from Vietnam. The food was good. Had good portions. It came with green tea.

Overall, I would go back for the great food, quick food and good prices. Service was very aloof. We walked in and waited to be seated for lunch and we were waved at by one of the servers who then just pointed at us and pointed at a table. I guess that was us being seated. Menus on the table...

Since most people go to a restaurant for the food, I rate this restaurant fairly high. The food is good (I had the bbq chicken and pork with steamed egg, fried egg) and reasonably priced. The spring rolls were standard fair. The restaurant experience however was somewhat strange. It is more diner style (where you seat yourself and go and... More

My favorite restaurant in the Waterloo Kitchener region is Pho Dau Bo, a chain of Vietnamese and Thai oriented dishes highlighted by many different delicious varieties of the eponymous main soup dish, Pho. I generally have Pho with rare beef and brisket but there are many other pork, beef, chicken, non meat, seafood varieties I will leave for the diner... More

Great restaurant. The servers are always warm and friendly. The "vermicelli with grilled chicken" dish is fantastic, as are all fried rice dishes! I've been going to this place for almost a decade!

I went there with one of my friend. We ordered the spring rolls as an appetizer and the pho. It all came at once! The rolls were blend tasting. The meat in the pho was all fatty slices and the broth looked way too old. I ordered an avocado milkshake and it was sour. I complained to the owner and... More

We were in the mood for some good Vietnamese food and and seen this restaurant many times but had never stopped in. Even though it was relative a summer Saturday, the place was virtually empty - and no one on the patio - but we decided to give it a try. The menu lists many of the same dishes -... More

Came to this local restaurant and was quite confused by the menu. I told the waitress i wanted the brisket rice noodle soup, and she told me it is very fatty. Well if it is fatty and you're telling me that, why list it on the menu? Later my business colleague and I ordered an appetizer, xoup and our entrees.... More
