“Very Good Pho @ Pho Mekong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Have been here five times now since learning of Pho Mekong's opening.

The Pho has always been very good and at a good value.

The dining area is contemporary and the washrooms are clean.

I would recommend eating here. A definite go-to place for Pho in Barrie.

Included is a link of an article from the Barrie Examiner.

“Good for Vietnamese in Barrie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

This is my go to Vietnamese restaurant in Barrie. I really like the tom yum noodle soup, pork and vermicelli, and cold fresh rolls.

“Hidden Gem in Barrie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Pho always delivers great food at exceptional value. The restaurant is tasteful and clean. The staff is very friendly and it is impossible to leave hungry. Portions are large, especially in the soups. There is no way to finish the finish the large on your own! This is our go-to place in Barrie when we are looking for quick, charming and delicious.

“Very clean and excellent Thai cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

My husband and I really enjoyed this cute clean Thai restaurant. The service was friendly like another reviewer said they aren't at the table asking if all is good constantly. The food was soo fresh & very tasty. We had pho beef soup and vermicelli bun with chicken...really yummy! the bubble tea was also good.

“Great food, great price, slightly awkward (but friendly) atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Pho Mekong is very close to me, so I knew that I had to try it to support a local business. For a place that already has another Asian restaurant in the same plaza (and some of the same dishes on the menu), this one really holds its own.

I love that there are booths for more comfortable seating.

The portions are HUGE, so be ready to bring some home for lunch the next day. The flavours are amazing and the ingredients are very fresh.

The weird thing is that when you look at the menu, they just give you the ticket so that you fill in the foods that you want, so that they can bring it to the chef. You have to write out your options like a server normally would in another restaurant. That's a bit awkward. At the same time, everybody there is very friendly, so it makes up for it.
