I generally do not write reviews unless the service or the food was really bad or extremely good. I took some of my relatives to Pho Chau for dinner last night hoping to enjoy a nice meal together. The restaurant closes at 9:00 PM (on a Saturday night; Yes, I know that is just pathetic) and we were there at... More

Believe me the food is terrible, they only good enough to fool the white people. I am Vietnamese myself, and I know how the food should test like. I actually gave them two chances since they opened; grand opening and recently. Both times had proved to fail my expectation. But the people are supper nice and enthusiastic. I gave them... More

This was a great spot for a casual lunch. The first indicator of the authenticity of this Vietnamese diner is the number of local Vietnamese residents enjoying a Saturday brunch. I had the beef pho without shell fish or exotic meats for 7 dollars. It was delicious and hit the spot with the right balance of herbs and spices. Our... More

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
