I had high expectations based on all the reviews, but the food was really disappointing. The service was good and friendly. I am comparing to Le's in Boston which I love. I had the chicken pho--it came luke-warm and the broth was missing something. Husband and kids had the grilled pork vermicelli. The pork did not have that delicious grilled-ness... More

I also have reviews on here for Vietnam's Pho and Pho Van in the Strip District. I love Pho! With that being said, admittedly, Vietnam's Pho has my favorite bowl of steamy noodles in Pittsburgh. However, I still come to Tram's quite often.. probably even more than the the other two because his Pho is also delicious. It seems that... More

One of the better places to get Vietnamese food in Pittsburgh. The owner is very nice and wants to make sure you enjoy your meal.

This is my favorite Vietnamese place in Pittsburgh. The food is fresh and delicious! But I noticed this is also listed under Thai food. I don't recall ever seeing Thai food on the menu here.

With awards and Vietnamese artwork lining the walls, Tram’s Kitchen needs no introduction. Routinely awarded in best of lists, Tram’s makes one of the few genuine Vietnamese cuisines in the city. I had pork and shrimp springrolls with peanut sauce. The Hanoi Beef Pho was predictably pleasant, as everyone should have this at least once in their lifetime. Last was... More

Whether you're local or visiting, if you like Vietnamese food, you MUST go to Tram's Kitchen. We've been going for about 15 years and are usually there about once a month, at least. The Pho soup is like my mom used to make -- keep in mind that the beef Pho is traditional northern cuisine, i.e. Hanoi, and the chicken... More

I know that Pittsburgh isn't exactly the culinary capital of the world, but this place stands out for their excellent, fresh food. I travel quite a bit, and you're not going to find better spring rolls anywhere. When you go here, you have to at least order them with whatever meal you get. The usual waiter (Tram) has one hand...

This place is a gem but don't except good service. We sat there for at least 20 minutes without being acknowledged and the owner was sitting at the register. This didn't really matter to us cause it was a BYOB restaurant so we just enjoyed each others company and drank our beers. Once we were waited on the food came... More

If you are looking for a good authentic bowl of Pho than this is your place. It is a small restaurant so you might have to wait it gets packed quickly but its worth the wait.

While visiting my brother and his family this weekend, he took us to his favorite weekly hole-in-the wall place. I live in Southern California and have eaten in many excellent vietnamese restaurants specializing in Pho - a vietnamese soup. I must say, that this restaurant is as good as any that I have been to in Southern California. Their soups... More
