Always quick, affordable, and delicious. Very nice staff as well. Serving sizes are usually enough for 2 meals.

We ate at Pho Chau Friday at around 6pm. We also had the Vermicelli noodles with shrimp, beef and egg rolls and a separate order of egg rolls which alll tasted good. The ambiance is very basic. The service was excellent - the waitress was very attentive and checked on us frequently.

My wife and I came here for lunch. The place was bustling, which made it more interesting. The decor is pretty average, so you don't get much atmosphere overall. We both ordered the pho, which came in huge bowls. The broth was good, the beef tasted fresh and the noodles were cooked perfectly. We also ordered the spring rolls (which... More

This restaurant is the one we go to on Friday nights after a long work week. Their Curry Chicken is one of the best meals I have ever tasted. The dinning area is not much to speak of so it makes this place a perfect carry-out place. I am not sure what is in that yellow sauce but it makes... More

Pho Chau is an amazing place to dine. It is conveniently located on North Broadway. The menu is expansive and everything I have had is amazing. The portions are huge and served before you can even start your tea! I don't know how they do it but every time I go and no matter how busy they are, I love... More

There's few things that depress me more than walking into a sad and empty Pho house. Luckily for me and for them, this place is packed, and for a good reason: the food is healthy and fresh. The soup bowls are three times bigger than an average adult's face, and I doubt you'll leave here feeling comfortable in any way.... More

I have been going to Chau's since it opened and even before that when she was still at Hunan Wok Express on 7th Street NW (which is also a great place to eat). She is such a sweet lady and loves hugs :) She always remembers names & dishes people like! Egg Drop soup is the best I've had -... More

Well we were in Rochester for the weekend and went to a couple other places. Sunday a lot of downtown restaurants are closed so we ended up at Chau's place, we should've just went there in the first place and not wasted time looking! I had the deep fried shrimp and the wife had the soup, both were very good.... More

Hostess was very rude, kept asking us if we were ready for the cheque before we were even half way through the meal. We were there before 7pm, not sure what their problem was.The food is average. Not going back.
