We found Pho 79 using the Trip Advisor app as we were leaving town and were craving Pho for lunch. We are are seasoned Pho eaters and this was authentic and filling. Their broth is rich and delicious and the meat portions are generous. We were seated promptly, served promptly and felt very satisfied we had found this little restaurant.

First I want to say this establishment has good authentic food. However bad service has my wife and I contemplating a third visit back. Both times service was extremely slow and the resturant was not busy. Both visits we had to walk to the bar with an empty glass for beverage refills after waiting for almost ten minutes with no...

The wife and I visited for our third time in three years. We found it very crowded this time as we went later for lunch than our usual. I said the "crowd" must mean it's really popular. Some who came in after us had to wait for a table. We had our usual Pho soup; it was as good as... More

I've been here twice now and the food is really great. That's why I've been back, it certainly wasn't the service that made me return. I've never sat in a restaurant and listened to so many people complain about the poor service. Go here and enjoy the food but just don't expect too much from the staff.

I was dying for some good Vietnamese food but this wasn't the place to go. The meat in the pho was gross. The spring rolls were decent.

We love the pho here. My wife gets the number 1 and I go for the number4 with brisket, roundsreak, and sirloin. The small bowl is plenty even if you are super hungry. The fresh herbs and additions are nice and there is hoisin and siracha available to doctor it up as wanted. Our favorite local place for pho!

Broth was very rich and flavorful, plenty of meat and rice noodles and a side plate of more veggies. Condiments included everything to spice it up, including siratcha sauce. We also had the rice wrapper style spring rolls with shrimp. Food got to our table in 15 minutes or less. Staff was great. Very healthy eating and everything can be... More

In my opinion, a good measure of authenticity is whether the cuisine appeals to its namesake ethnic group. An example of this is a Chinese carry-out that I frequented when I lived in Central Jersey. With few exceptions, including me, the clientele was of Chinese origin. This appears to be the case with Pho 79. My wife and I shared... More
