Good Pho Place

We dropped in one day for lunch. We only tried the Pho which was really nice and very reasonably priced. The place isn't fancy by any means and the pho is simple but tasty. The place was full of people that looked Asian, which I take as an indication of a good place to eat Asian food. Note they... read more

While living in New York I would come here for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The pho cured me of hangovers and the cold. It was so good and affordable, set me up for the day!

It seems like another hole in the wall restaurant in the middle of chinatown. Well no, its not. The food is amazingly good, portions are big and your wallet wont hurt. Great pho and menu number 24 and 61 (sorry dont recall its names) were a delightful surprise.

My girlfriend I scheduled our recent NYC trip to include a stop at Phô Bang after having been to the sister restaurant in Montreal a few times and the Mott St restaurant did not disappoint. Our go to Phô is the one with sliced Eye of Round. There are 2 sizes available: one being regular and other being extra large.... More

We stopped in here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised on the quality, originality and price of the food. All ingredients very fresh and everything as authentic as it gets. The Pho broth was excellent and a super size bowl for less than $8. No credit cards accepted.

A very nice and clean eating establishment deep in the heart of NYC Chinatown. The Pho is very tasty with either beef or fish balls. Beef cubes and summer rolls with peanut sauce are my favorites. Try the slow drip Vietnamese style coffee with the condensed milk. Excellent for an after meal drink. Menus are in English, Chinese, and Vietnamese.... More

Excellent food but a little difficult to communicate there. The soups are wonderful so make sure that you try some but avoid anything that is dark and looks creepy.

I was surprised at how thick and chewy the rice noodles were in the pho. They tasted great like they were made fresh. I ordered the eye of round pho (for 6.95) which was great and I have never had eye of round before. I can not have gluten and had no reactions from this food. My friend was able... More

There was a wide variety of condiments available on the table, and the place looked clean and orderly. My friend and I both got the Com Tay Cam- one with chicken and one with beef. It was satisfying and filling. Service was alright. It was a little strange that they brought our pork chop appetizers out after our meal, but... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
