Firstly having read comments about being cold in the restaurant I rang up to check. The air con is set at 22 C or 72F. It was fine. Had the fresh spring rolls having seen pictures of them. They were good. The Bùn Bó Nuong was good, the others order two Pho dishes both large. For those with an average... More

Pho 79 is one of my favorite spots. I use to drive all the way to Chesapeake for this soup before it opened in Newport News. No other place that serves Pho can top this place. They serve you really good food hot, fast, & at a great price.

There are a few Pho spots in town and none compare to Pho 79. The service is great! Everything is fresh the restaurant is clean and comfortable.

Incredible and delicious soup - Pho 79 is always a great place to get a steaming bowl with so many fresh ingredients and savory flavors .... Mmmmm! They have other dishes but I haven't tried them. Fast service, great family atmosphere with fun board games for the kids to bring to their table. Prices are great too!

We are die hard pho fans and have tried many places in Hampton Roads to include Pho79 over the water. This place is hands down our top pick! Broth was robust and flavorful, ingredients fresh and delicious. The only gripe was the tiny piece of lime. Well done!

The food and service were exceptional. Only knock no fresh Jalapeno in the bahn Mi which to me is a must.

Had a very nice lunch today with my wife. Although it was 22* outside and a little too chilly inside the food was warm and very tasty. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was served quickly. Will definitely be back with the kids. Gotta try the spring rolls too!

We ate here with a family of 5 and all enjoyed their meals tremendously. The broth had lots of flavor and they gave you ample veggies for the pho. the prices were reasonable and the restaurant was clean and well lit. We will definitely eat here again as we are huge fans of Asian food. We also had rice paper... More

This Pho 79 branch is clean, tastefully decorated and well runned by a courteous staff which delightfully is just the opposite of it's dirty, old and sketchy looking sister store in Virginia Beach. Our family are big Pho eaters and go there regularly. The soup is flavorful and portions are generous. Whenever I needed a pho fix, I would even... More

My family and I love coming here. The food is always good. The restaurant is clean and always inviting to come to. They are really kid friendly, they have toys for the kids to play while you are waiting for the food.
