authentic Vietnamese restaurant

Pho Chau is a small family owned restaurant. I tried the fried rice with chicken strips. Nicely served with fresh vegetables, good tasting and at a very reasonable price. Friendly service in a quiet environment.

And that means Pho! Chau's is my first stop when I head back to Rochester. Went last night and man was it good. perfect amount, flavor was great, service was prompt and with a smile. Because this is, what 4 or 5 on the list is deserved. I see way too many ratings that aren't really deserved, this one is... More

Why I have not come here before, I do not know. Service is attentive and fast. Prices are best in town for Asian food, and servings are sumptuous. spring rolls are fresh and large with great peanut sauce. Pad Thai is vinegar-based, which concerned me at first, but it is addictive. I ordered spicy and glad I did as it... More

Seriously a go-to place for my husband and I, when we don't feel like cooking. Very homey, welcoming, and nice environment to be in. I've never been to a place that they remember your name after you leave, but at this restaurant, they remembered my husbands and my name the 2nd time (second!!) around! I recommend anyone here. Love, love,... More

The lovely owner started out in a small one person operation and has now expanded to her own amazing restaurant. This place is top notch and cheap.

The Spring Rolls and Pad Thai were very good. The Crab Rangoon was mediocre. It was very inexpensive. Altogether a great experience!

went based on reading other reviews and was not disappointed. The ambiance was nothing to get excited about, but the food and service made up for the lack of decor. I had a bowl of Pho and certainly enjoyed it. Also had the egg roll appetizer which were a little greasy, but tasty. It seems that this restaurant is well... More

My co-workers and I ordered out lunch for the office today. It was delicious. Most of us ordered Pad Thai w either chicken or tofu and we all were completely satisfying. The flavors and portions were on point (some had leftovers, others were ambitious enough to take on the whole meal). Very decently priced and I am so very excited... More

This is a true Vietnamese restaurant that sticks to its origins. The food especially their pho is very authentic. They have a standing line each time I go, so the majority of the time, I will order to go. They make Chinese dishes better than most Chinese restaurants in this town The staff is very friendly and the best Asian... More
