Craving some vietnamese, we decided to try Pho Hoa and unfortunately were pretty disappointed. The flavours weren't there and there was no resemblance of authenticity. When you're in a western multicultural country with its plethora of ethnic food, you should be able to easily find a place that makes pho as if you were sitting on a street cart eating... More

Never would have tried this place without the Foursquare app, but the reviews there were spot on. Amazingly complex and delicious pho. Pro tip- add the meatballs to any order.

The quality of the food and the service was lower than we expected. We tried the restaurant because it had a five-star TripAdvisor rating. But I am giving it a three-star.

I went here with a friend since we were both craving for Pho.... it was ok, nothing special. I guess I'm a little picky since I can cook pho at home and like it my way. The coffee was very good though.

Growing up in san diego and having travel to many parts of the US as well as Vietnam. I will say that this is the best Pho in the whole US and is comparable to the stuff you get from Vietnam. I can go on and on about whats great about this place. Pricing, service, taste, you name it and... More

Absolutely fast services and the pho was wonderful. My family and I went there 5 mins before closing and they brought out our pho bowls in 5 mins. They only serve phos so don't be surprised if you wanted spring rolls or rice plates and its not available. I will surely be coming back here when I'm in San Diego.
