Great pho, one of the best in town

Went there several times and really enjoyed their pho. The broth is delicious and there is a lot of meat in the bowl. The prices are quite fair. The service is good and the staff is friendly. My parents and my siblings prefer this place to other famous pho restaurants in town. I have to agree with... read more

Every trip I take back to Saigon/ Ho Chi Minh City I come to Pho 99. My wife is Vietnamese and she loves this place. It's the spot we always go to for pho. I have read reviews and this is the spot

Pho here was a little different than what I'm used to... Thick noodles and a a little cinnamon thrown into the broth. Sit down restaurant with air conditioning. Pleasant enough when you've been walking around the hot and humid city. Different sizes were available which was nice. From what I could tell, the same broth was used for both beef... More

Anything with beef here is generally good. The prices are reasonable and it's generally quite consistent. I've had a few issues with service from time to time, but overall the place is definitely worth a visit. Almost everyone I've turned on to it agrees.

Went for a long walk today exploring the area near my hotel. Found Pho 99 directly around the corner & decided to give it a go for dinner. Had a quick squiz at the TA reviews & all looked good. Am used to restaurants being quiet here when I first arrive as I prefer to eat earlier when alone. I... More

We each ordered a pho and some fresh spring rolls. The broth was good! This place was recommended to us by a Vietnamese friend who frequents this restaurant often. You know that it's good food because many locals were stopping by for meals, but I'm assuming it's not getting a whole lot of reviews because it's not super flashy and... More

I liked this restaurant. The pho was good but I've had better broth other places. Even adding spices and other to the broth didn't give it as much flavour as other places. The other items on the menu were great

This place is all about the sauce - mix the chili sauce, plum sauce and chili paste with fresh squeezed lime into a little dish, mix and then dip the meat from your Pho...soo good! The sides (fresh greens, bean sprouts, white onion and chili slices) are a great compliment in the soup. The broth in the Pho is flavored... More
