The majority of our group had never had Pho and loved every bite. My middle daughter was so excited to try her strawberry Boba Tea! With many other flavors she could have easily had a different flavor every day for weeks. Several of us shared and I'm so glad we did. The small bowl is even BIG... read more

I have been meaning to visit this cool little spot since I recently moved here and finally did and wish I had sooner. I am very picky about vegetarian pho and Pho 79 definitely measured up to my standards. Only one other place I know besides here uses the fried onions that add that great flavor to the broth. I...

Truth be told, this is the first time I ever had pho and I sought it out because A. apparently there are no good pho places in Pittsburgh and B. Anthony Bourdain lists it as his favorite food. I took a seasoned pho veteran who said that this was average pho but he liked the banh mi. My interpretation of... More

Pho 79 was one of the last stops on our trip to Virginia Beach. We arrived at around 10:30am for a very early lunch. It's a seat yourself place. We were greeted immediately and got our orders placed. I tried a Boba Bubble Tea, strawberry flavor. The drink was great, definitely different from anything I've had before. It was an... More

The rice dishes with grilled meats was good. Didn't try the Pho. Excellent service, they refilled my ice tea 3 times! Less than 10 minutes from North end of VA oceanfront hotels.

Since this was my first time in a pho restaurant, the vegetarian spring rolls looked a little strange to me, with a clear coating on the outside. Fortunately, they tasted great. I also ordered the Bún Chay, which is stir Fried tofu, carrots, broccoli and mushroom over vermicelli. It was excellent! Craig Herberg

I decided to try something different than the usual seafood places in Virginia Beach. I have never had Pho before so I was a novice. I tried the rolls made with rice paper. The outside wrapper was a little rubbery, but this is only the 2nd time I'd had something like this. I then had the most popular pho #4.... More

We came here on vacation because we love Pho and saw an ad for this restaurant. The menu is extensive with Vietnamese selections. The Pho selections are very good and the base broth was very flavorful. Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys this food.

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

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 corner. As soon as we sat... More
