Great little restaurant— can't wait to go back!

We were in the mood for some Pho and decided to try Pho Chau based on previous reviews. This place is awesome. It was Saturday night and they were really busy but food came out quickly and was excellent. The owner seemed to know everyone. I'm sure if I lived in Rochester I'd be a regular.

Our server was very helpful with ordering. The spring rolls are superb and served with a peanut sauce. My chicken lemon grass vermicelli was excellent. All three of us really liked the food. We had iced tea which is made on site and is also excellent. My only complaint is the HUGE amount served! I'll be back.

We just love the food here!! The Pho (and there are many types) is very flavorful and generous. I personally have enjoyed every scrumptious meal here especially the Lemon Grass Vermicellis, spring rolls and egg rolls. ALL the people who work here, can't do enough to make sure you enjoy your meal, especially the owner. They will help you choose... More

My husband and I met another couple at Pho Chau, and we all enjoyed the food. It was BUSY! But, even being as busy as they were, the staff was great. Our food arrived very promptly, our glasses were never empty. Even my husband who was leery of his first Vietnamese dining experience was happy! Next time in Rochester, I... More

This Vietnamese Restuarant is worth the stop! It has become our " Go To" for Asian food! Food is fresh, served quickly, and menu is lengthy! One of the waitresses, chau, is amazing! She is quick to know everyone who comes there by name! You can tell her what you're hungry for and she places your order! It is always... More

Food came out hot and fresh. Service was great! The only disappointment was the screaming child that was sitting behind us!

This place does all the standard southeast Asian dishes nicely. Very mild is to be expected in the heart of the Midwest. They are glad to make it very authentic if asked, but for a tasty dish that everyone will like look no further.
