One of the better pho restos in town

If you're looking at ambience and all that jazz then skip this. But if you are looking for a good bowl of noodle soup then give this a chance. It does look a lil dodgy on the outside but once inside its almost always full. Unpretentious, just all abt the food and quick service. I love pho but not... read more

While waiting during a train layover I went wandering the Chinatown area searching for a nice restaurant. What I found was a lot of small shops and street side vendors. Finally, I stumbled upon PHO 87. From the outside it does not look like much. I approached the door somewhat hesitantly. What encouraged me to go in and eat were... More

I been wanting to try pho for a while, my co-worker is a regular here and she took a group of 4 of us. We got there around 11:35 a.m. on a Wednesday and the place was already busy but luckily we didn't have to wait. When noon rolled around, there was a bit of a line. This was my... More

Upon approaching this restaurant I was a bit nervous. There is no curbside appeal whatsoever. When we stepped into the restaurant you are hit with this overwhelming smell that I couldn't seem to shake off. I've eaten Pho before and it didn't smell the way this place smelt. It seemed a bit dirty to me and the decor was having... More

Went there because my friend wants to challenge the phozilla. Food is about average but pricey. The phozilla is enormous.

Normally, I'd give this place 3 stars as I thought the broth for the beef pho was very mediocre. What I didn't expect was the roasted garlic & chili sauce they had on the tables. That stuff was awesome when added to my pho. It also made for a great dipping sauce (mixed with hoisin) for the meat.

This place is a bit of a hole in the wall but the beef broth is to die for, as is the Vietnamese iced coffee. Service is attentive.

The place was full of people when we walked in. My husband and I are pho fanatics. Wanted to try some in China town on vacation. To much surprise not the greatest. The wait staff spoke little English so it was really hard to ask questions. Manager was rude when we wanted to send the summer rolls back. They lacked... More
