Stopped in for a quick lunch and I'm glad I did. I had the Saigon soup and spring rolls. Both were excellent and were very fresh. The soup came in a large bowl and along with the greens, had shrimp and sliced pork. The spring rolls were very fresh too. The soup came with a side of bamboo shoots... read more

After reading reviews, my wife and I tried Tram's Kitchen in Lawrenceville. Very unassuming location, but the Pho is amazing. My wife had the spicy prawns and we both had egg rolls which were very good, The Pho however is one of the best things I have ever eaten. Mine was with mixed meat, but it was the broth that... More

Tried the pho and spring rolls. Very close to what we had in Vietnam on our recent trip. Very basic place. Clean and good service. They don't take credit cards. An ATM is conveniently located inside the entrance door. Have been back several times and have brought friends. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

We chose this place because of the good review online. We were the only customers at 11 AM in the restaurant. We were seated immmediately and ordered spring rolls and phos. Spring rolls tasted pretty good but It was odd that we were required to order minimum two spring rolls. The broth of pho was ok for me, but not... More

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
