A friend brought me here on a cold day, and I was ready for a hot bowl of pho! It's clean and spacious. The interior is comfortable, and quite peaceful too. Our waitress was very polite and the food came on time. Coming from a town filled with authentic and strong-tasting pho, I was disappointed in the bland soup base... More

My daughter's family has raved about Pho Van for months and finally introduced us to this Vietnam cuisine for a Sunday lunch. I didn't quite know how to order, so my choice (a pho bowl of seafood and rice noodles) was not my best because I don't really like cilantro, but adding the mint leaves, bean sprouts and sirachi made...

My daughter and I were walking around the Strip District and were in the mood for something different and I'd been looking for a great bowl of Pho. This was the place. I had the eye of round pho and it was phenomenal. My daughter (8-year-old) got the chicken fried rice and said it was the best fried rice she'd... More

We been eating at Pho Van for few months and the food remain outstanding. I love the beef noodle and pork over rice. A great place and good price, keep up the good work.

I’ve been to Vietnam twice and I’ve been eating Pho for years. This place is legitimate authentic Pho. I recommend trying all the different versions of Pho. However, their Bo Kho, beef tomato soup, was not quite right. Overall it’s a great dining experience. Pittsburgh doesn’t have the most diverse Asian cuisine scene but this place is worth a visit.

My fiancee and I eat Pho at least once a month and this is by far the best Pho we have had. We went on a Saturday afternoon and there were only a couple other tables. We waited maybe 10 min for our food. It was awesome. Best Pho broth I have ever had. Plenty of meat and noodles for... More

Pho Van is a small but nicely decorated restaurtant. I thought that the atmosphere was nicer than its cousing a few blocks down the street (Vietnam's Pho). I also thought that the menu was a bit different as well. Pho Van had excellent pho. They offered chicken pho on their menu which Vietnam's Pho did not. Overall, I would try... More

We ate here the Saturday before Easter. This is located towards the end of the Strip district. It was fairly busy. Although we were able to get a table right away, the wait for the food was probably about 1/2 hour. The food was delicious. We ordered variations of the beef flank Pho and my husband got the spicy pho... More

Service was very good, pho was pretty good, The restaurant was clean and uncluttered. While the food was good, it was not transcendent. I would be more likely to try a new restaurant the next time.
