Great place for noodles and springrolls.

Great pho and springrolls. Service and environment typical of a noodle house, but the food is stellar and pricing is perfect. A great stop if you are craving Pho.

This restaurant must have changed owners or rebranded recently. It is now called Pho House of Noodle. Regardless of the name change, the Pho was good. I would opt for a Small or Large bowl. It is not a high-end Pho shop. Do not expect a five star dining experience, but do expect great food. Their menu offers sever non-Pho... More

I've been to a zillion Vietnamese restaurants and admittedly order the same feast each time. A huge bowl of PHO soup (differing meats tho, usually beef), the cold spring rolls in white rice paper with shrimp/pork and peanut sauce, the fried spring rolls with fish sauce and the iced vietnamese coffee with condensed milk...did so here too. A standard place,... More

Went to try this place with a freshly purchased (same day) gift certificate from Restaurants.com. Was informed they did not take them any more. The manger was sent over (I thought to resolve) and repeated, rather rudely, what waiter said initially. So now, instead of 2 new customers who could have been repeat customers, who may have brought friends and... More

Affordable and so so so good. They give you so much food, ended up taking half home for lunch the next day. The outside doesn't look like much, but don't let that deter you. Go eat here!

Pho 79 is consistently good! Their soups are always fresh and I have never had anything there that wasn't fabulous. Their spring rolls are amazing! The place is clean and the staff is so friendly. I have never felt the need to go online and write a review about a place, but this place is just so good, they deserve... More

I enjoy pho in general and have found Pho 79 to have consistently good soups. They open at ( am for breakfast and stay open late. The service is good and the food is quickly brought out to the table. They bring a side of bean sprouts and of asian basil which has a unique flavor. The menu also has... More

The service is fast and efficient. Tasted the mixed vermicelli bowl and the mixed BBQ broken rice. Both entrees were freshly prepared and very flavorful. What a bargain! No ambiance, but it is very clean.
