Went there last weekend. The place has been remodeled and looks very nice. Still has large menu and it's a great value. I had one of the "clay pots" which was good but the rice was a littler burned on the bottom.

This is a very busy and popular Vietnamese restaurant, and with good reason. The service is friendly and excellent, the menu extensive, the portions lavish and the food is amazing. We had a group of nine for lunch and everyone loved each dish -- we could not have been happier with all the fresh flavors and genuine Vietnamese dishes. A... More

This Vietnamese Restaurant is a fantastic find. Located in a low-rent district, on first sight it looks like a bit of an Asian greasy spoon. What a surprise! The menu is extensive and the prices were incredible! Food is authentic and the portions were huge. Spring rolls were perfection. It is loud, full of Asian customers(a good sign in my... More

I dined with friends on an early Monday evening. The food is incredible, the service was very good and the prices amazing! I had the spring rolls - I can't resist them, they are wonderful. I also ordered #49 Shrimp with rice vermicelli noodles along with iced tea. The food was beautifully presented, is fresh and tastes great.

My mom and I went on a Wednesday night. It was busy, but good service. I had the pho and crab Rangoon and it was AMAZING! The Rangoon is on the sweeter side and some of the best I'd ever have. Everything was fresh and delicious.

my father and I both had Pho. We both LOVE pho. I was a bit underwhelmed with mine, not bad but not great. My father absolutely loved his. My mother had chicken pad thai though, and it was phenomenal! We both ended up splitting that because it was huge and very flavorful

From a well-travelled tourist, who spent time in Cambodia, right next to the vietnamese border, I can tell you that Pho Chau is the tastiest, cheapest, most authentic Vietnamese restaurant in Rochester. Among my medical school peers, it is a mainstay of after-exam gatherings. The owners often recognize your name and can get your favorite order in before you even... More

When you want good pho, noodles, or spring rolls, head to pho chau. It's exactly what you think it is. Good food, good prices. I only do takeout so I can't comment on the service, but I love this place.
