Always dependable yummy food

I basically get the pho, but they have a huge selection of yummy Far East dishes. The staff is friendly but you'll need to get their attention if you need something. They are not going to keep checking on you. They are always busy but you'll never have to wait more than 5 minute to get a table on... read more

Our family has visited a great many Vietnamese Pho restaurants and Pho Dat Thanh definitely wins the prize for the worst bun dish ever. Noodles were dry and the very artificial red "grilled pork" was scary. (And one daughter who had it felt sick afterwards.) The Pho at other tables looked good, but as it had MSG (as did the... More

This so-called Việt restaurant is owned and staffed by Chinese, and it shows - the cooking is not authentic. The phở broth is not fragrant, and the different meat cuts are rarely found in a true Việt phở. The protein items for the broken rice (cơm tấm) dishes are all 'wrong': the pork chop is marinated with char siu flavour,... More

I have been to Pho Dat Thanh numerous times and their food has always been fresh & delicious and the service very good. I just love their Pho Noodle soup it's the best! Some of my friends do not eat meat and have allergies,the restaurant accommodated their needs. They said they were putting this place on their restaurant list.

We have been to Pho Dat Thanh a total of three times now, and each time I have had the pho with chicken breast. It is very good. My husband likes the pho with mini meatballs. They serve other Asian dishes besides pho, but we have not tried them. The service is very quick and friendly. I do recommend Pho... More

I am usually here once a week, generally after a work out. The Pho is delicious and Pork Summer Rolls are also amazing. The restaurant seats you right away, and immediately you are greeted with water cups. It is never more than a 2 to 3 minute wait before the waitress/waiter comes over. The staff is friendly and attentive even... More

The two of us had lunch here and shared a Vietnamese Spring Roll (crispy with pork and comes with a sweet pepper vinegar dipping sauce) and Pho. There is a multitude of types of meat you can add and they are very generous with the accompaniments (bean sprouts, cilantro, jalapeños and basil). The pho is very good. The restaurant is... More

We had a big group so we ordered many different dishes. The only dish that looked decent was the pork chop and rice. The pho was very bland. The kids wanted chowfoon so we order 5 chowfoon dishes but they were only able to make 2. The spring rolls were chewy because there was too much wrap. The pad thai... More

Going away luncheon had plenty of room. Roughly half ordered appetizers, about half ordered pho, and several of us had the pork pot - all thirteen of us seemed satisfied.
