Truly delicious, absolutely authentic Vietnamese food

Fabulous food -- truly authentic Vietnamese. The food is as good as you can find in the USA. This place is not fancy -- as is true for so many really good Asian restaurants. Emphasis is on the food and service, not the decor. Prices are very fair -- not cheap, but certainly not over priced... read more

On our second date, my future husband said he would take me to his favorite restaurant and I said I'd take him to mine on our third date. Turns out, we both meant we would treat the other to Pho 84. (I won't say this didn't factor into my decision to marry him...) Lovely informal environment, great food, personal and... More

The good stuff: If you like the kind of Vietnamese food that combines the sauces of the French with the spices of Southeast Asia, then you've found your restaurant, as I have. The staff is friendly and hard working, which is great because when lunch time rolls around, this place is crowded and busy and it would be easy for... More

Pho 84 has excellent Vietnamese cuisine from the apetizers to the main courses. Have had the pho, meat and noodle dishes, etc. and pleased with all the offerings. The atmosphere is classy, but casual. They have excellent service - very attentive wait staff. A good value downtown for lunch or dinner,

From the appetizers, imperial rolls, sauteed prawns, chicken or shrimp salad, to the pho, to the mains like chicken over spinach or calamari in coconut sauce this restaurant delivers delicious dishes every time. I have been a loyal customer for over 25 years and have watched this family run business expand and improve the ambiance of their downtown Oakland dining... More

We had a craving for Vietnamese Food and picked Pho 84 from various reviews. Happy we did! Had a marvelous Friday night dinner. With the assistance of a charming young lady waitress we maneuvered through the menus of at least 80 items (a daunting effort). We picked Imperial Rolls for an appetizer (Very Good), Pho Bo for Soup as the... More

Pho 84 is a great find for downtown Oakland. Ten of us had dinner before a play and all found the food delicious. The restaurant owner was very accommodating of our large group and the service was excellent. I, personally, didn't think I was a fan of Vietnamese food until I tried a couple of dishes from this restaurant. I... More

This place is very close to my office and a lovely place to grab a fresh and delicious meal. They have lots of good vegetarian options that don't make me feel like an after thought. Good service with tasty food makes this a favorite of mine.

I had the chance to have lunch at Pho 84 this week. Hadn't been there in over 12 years, but the freshly-prepared, flavorful, delicious food, service, and atmosphere were as wonderful as I remembered. Back in the early '90s, my co-workers and I lunched there frequently. I would often visit for dinner. After moving away from the local area, hadn't... More

My wife and I stopped in last night in advance of the Oakland speaker series. Never having been here before, I asked the server for advice. She recommended a delicious vegetable dish over vermicelli noodles, and some kind of spicy chicken coconut curry dish. Both were very, very tasty! Particularly notable was the chicken that had been pulled straight off... More
