My son & I have wanted to go for the longest time and finally had lunch as promised on a cold day and ordered the chicken soup. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed the huge & warm, delightful soup.

We visit here often. A hot bowl of pho on a cold night is perfect. Their broth is perfectly seasoned. The portion sizes are great, small is more than enough and large is easily shareable by 2 adults.

That's the Pho 79 tag-line and it is FOR REAL! Absolutely, the best Pho place in the Hampton Roads area. My family eats here atleast every week. Usual order is the fried egg rolls and Pho number 9 (brisket and everything on it) in large all the time! The people are so friendly and service is really great!

I love Pho 79. I have never been disappointed with anything I have gotten here. Their specialty is Vietnamese noodle soup and it won't disappoint if you enjoy different types of food. A must try!!

This place is highly recommended for Vietnamese food. The flavor is very consistent and I'm going to miss it when I return home.

Traditional VN menu. The Pho (beef noddle soup) is the best. If you not tried before, I think you will not be disappointed.

We have eaten in Vietnamese restaurants for many years None can compare to pho 79 They have excellent selections for vegetarians and for those who choose meat. The restaurant is always busy no matter when we go I highly recommend it. You won't be dissatisfied.
