One of the best beef pho' dishes I have head and love the spring rolls with the peanut sauce. My husband likes the crab man-goon and the beef pho. The outside is very deceiving as to what kind of place it may be on the inside but don't let that discourage you. The atmosphere inside is nice and they always... More

I was a little concerned. This place had been highly recommended by a friend and I convinced several people to hop in a car to drive from the French Quarter to Gretna for lunch. You definitely come here for the food! I wish I had stayed in NOLA longer because I would have liked to try their bahn mi as... More

The outside of the place is as ratty and rundown as anything I've ever seen -- However, the food is the best Vietnamese food I've ever eaten -- and I've eaten a lot of it. New Orleans is home to a large Asian community -- and this is the best place I've been in yet. The Pho has a broth... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant while on a trip to New Orleans. I had the chicken pho and my husband had the beef. We ordered the extra large bowls and they were huge!! We couldn't finish in the restaurant and we loved the soup so much we ordered another dish to bring back to the hotel with us.... More

We have been eating here regularly for about fifteen years. Food is always very good. Love their vegetarian soup (with tofu) but I always add chicken. Great pho!! The area it's in is starting to look a little run down but don't let that put you off. Worth the effort to find it.

I am Vietnamese and so all the dishes on the menu here are very familiar to me. I have had them from my mom as well as many restaurants (including those in Vietnam). The spring rolls were OK (hard to mess these up) but the dipping sauce was a little mild and very plain (I am used to seeing peppers,... More

Vietnamese cuisine was not what I went to New Orleans for but it was a diversion worth taking. I noted Pho Tau Bay from Anthony Bourdain's Layover show and my traveling companions were very keen to go. The location of this gem betrays the quality hidden inside, though it didn't appear to throw the local intelligentsia off the mark because... More

If you are Vietnamese or you are looking for authentic Pho, this is not the place. The broth tasted nothing like pho, noodle was still stringy and too much. The meat was cut thick and stale and the whole thing was not hot enough to cook the fresh vesgetable. Nếu bạn là người Vn, đừng có tin vào những cái... More

I've heard of this place for years on TV and the 'net and finally found myself in the area. The strip mall location is downbeat, but inside are nice granite tabletops, awesome food, and friendly folks. We had the pho, bun with viet eggrolls, and pork banh mi. I eat pho wherever I go, and this was very good. Delicate... More
