It's Pho King Good!

After we took care of our errands for the day, my wife wanted to stop at Pho '79. It's a Vietnamese restaurant. We pulled into the parking lot and parked in one of the many vacant parking slots. We entered the restaurant. This is a "seat yourself" establishment, we picked a table by the... read more

Pho79 has some of the best Vietnamese food we've ever had. Their menu has many choices, and for those with food allergies they offer gluten-free and dairy-free options (and you can't tell the difference in the taste!). They have a

This place is tucked away from the boulevard. The food is very tasty and the atmosphere is quaint. The meatballs are not ti 'mt liking but everything else is outstanding. Can't wait to go again next week. DELICIOUS.

Real deal Vietnamese food in a clean and inviting setting. Lunch special of appetizer pho & bahmi sandwich is ridiculous. For $8.95 you get a full size sandwich and a bowl of any pho. Great quality and the bahmi bread is as authentic as it gets.

My husband and I decided to try this place today. It was crowded for lunchtime. Our food arrived in about 10 mins. We both ordered the same meal, Pho Ti, Nm, noodle soup with round steak, well-done flank and brisket. The broth was very flavorful! The side of basil and sprouts were fresh. I honestly couldn't tell the difference between... More

We enjoyed very good Vietnamese food and very friendly service recently at the new store opened by this same group on General Booth Boulevard in the Strawbridge shopping center. They had converted a so-so Chinese restaurant site into a welcoming, sort of open space type design. It's a bit unusual with the tiled roof inside that looks like it's Mexican,... More

One of the owners served us today, very humble and friendly family. Had the rice noodles with kebabs, mixed meat. Lots of fresh veggies and very cold beer. Vietnamese food served at it's finest. Located by the Farm Fresh next to the Strawbridge movie theaters. Definitely worth a try, especially for vegetarian minded folks.

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
