“Great Vietnamese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

This restaurant is located in an Asian complex with a great Asian grocery and many different restaurants. It is not fancy, but clean and inviting. The menu is extensive and affordable. The servers were very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious and abundant. A great find. Will visit again!

“The pho is unPhogettable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Having spent many years living in Seattle before moving to AZ I was somewhat no-plussed about the Asian restaurants in the valley for some time. Fortunately, unPhogettable opened. The rare beef and brisket pho is the best in the valley and rivals the best Vietnamese restaurants in Seattle. The broth is excellent and not fatty and the portion of meat is very substantial. I am a frequent visitor.

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

At the recommendation of our son-in-law, we ventured in to the unPhogettable Restaurant, as it was one of his favorites, because he frequents the Mekong Plaza shopping center. My wife and I are always up for trying something new! The service by the staff was really relaxed and they were so very friendly! They did everything to ensure our experience was a wonderful one! We enjoyed the Pho with lean beef and the noodles with seafood & tofu. Wow! The dishes were so flavorful and delicious! The servings were very large and we took half home to savor again! It is a great value for such delicious Vietnamese cuisine! I am ready to go back again and try something new!

“Generous portions of Vietnamese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Situated in the Mekong Plaza, a retail center catering to oriental/Asian fare. The Plaza houses many Asian eateries and has a huge Asian market with a busy fresh seafood section. Restaurant unPhogettable is one on many eateries there.

Reservations are suggested if you are with a "large group" {maybe 8 or more). Although there are a few table for 4-6 people, the remainder (most) are long banquet style tables, so you may share/be close to other diners (which is not a negative).

The food is good; the portions are large so you'll be taking home tomorrow lunch/dinner. If you are "into" sake, purchase a bottle from the Asian supermarket there and have it with your dinner.

In the market seafood section there are tanks of live fish including lobster ($10.99 lb) and the lobsters available weigh as much as 5 lbs!

Try both the restaurant and the market...you'll like it.

“Worth seeking out - Great food, friendly service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

This Vietnamese restaurant has such great fresh food! The owner and family are incredibly friendly and help you with the menu! I have eaten there twice and had Bun. My family members love the Pho (soup filled with noodles, veggies, meat) It's located in Mekong Plaza - a large shopping square filled with shops, restaurants, and an oriental supermarket catered to the local Asian community. It's fun to browse the supermarket when you are done eating - especially the meat counter! (Not for a weak stomach!)
