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

We were a group of 8, three generations of a family from Queens and Switzerland including 2 small children, and in search of a restaurant without a clue of where to go, or even of where to find one! Happily, we happened on Pho Bang by accident just when were at rope's end as to whether we would expire from... More

Pho was cheap, but super bland. Just tasted like hot water with a slight beef stock flavor. Boring. Spring rolls were super crispy and nice. Wouldn't go back. NEXT!!!

The quality of the food has decreased while the price increased, spring rolls tasted like fried rubber, noodle soup was good but less noodles and even with additional tendons, it was very little! I will go back to the Pho restaurant on Grand St.

Ok let me start by saying I am a pho addict. If it was my last supper, this is what I'm eating. I'm super critical and from Australia which means we are blessed with amazing Vietnamese food. From all accounts Pho Bang is the best pho in NYC, so considering the reputation that New York has in the culinary world,... More

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.
