First time having Vietnamese food. It was great. Soup, appetizers, main courses. We shared 3 appitizers, and 4 main courses. Atmosphere was good. Went with a couple hadn't met before and was able to have and here conversations. Parking is rough on Saturday night.

We had a couples night at Pho, and the food was very good. I've never had Vietnamese food before, but our friends said this was very authentic. The Pho soups are delicious and filling. The appetizers were very good too. We had delicious Mai Tai's as well. The atmosphere is very stark, but for the great value and delicious food... More

Very tasty Thai food at a nice affordable price. Our servers have been great, and wait on is just enough to always be there when we need things, without being overbearing.

If allowed, I would have given Pho a 3.5. We were here on a Thursday evening in late October and the place was comfortably busy. We were seated immediately and the service is quick. While we did not have wine, we noticed that some others did and the wine was served in nice glasses, not the cheap thick versions. We... More

My son and I stopped by for a late lunch and found the restaurant empty except for one other table. We both ordered the "rare beef" Pho and it was superb. The spring rolls were excellent too. Their menu is extensive and fairly priced. Hard to choose but we made the correct choice. The one waitress was a bubble head.... More

This is my favorite Vietnamese Restaurant in Worcester and one of my favorite restaurants period. Vietnamese food is light, fresh and tasty without being too spicy. The decor is nice and the service prompt. We generally go there for lunch because we don't want to deal with karaoke at dinner time (weekends). The soups are excellent and portions ample. The...

Finally a restaurant in Worcester that I look forward to going back to. Sadly Worcester is not a culinary destination. To my knowledge it has two adequate Italian restaurants. Not just my opinion, they are difficult to get into and don't take reservations. Pho though is something really quite interesting. I have often read about top chef's passion for the... More
