“Read the History of this Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

The service is fast and the food is very good. Be sure to read the history of how this restaurant was named. It is very inspiring.

“Good food, only Vietnamese restaurant in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

The atmosphere and food were good here. Nice to have a Vietnamese restaurant around - food is much lighter and fresher than other types of Asian cuisine. Too bad they couldn't opt for some real Asian vegetables with their meals - carrots and broccoli are just not my idea of Asian veggies.

“I Enjoyed Pho”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Nice little restaurant in Palm Springs. Don't know how authentic it is but as a Vietnam veteran, I enjoyed the atmosphere, the pho and everything that went with it. The place was full at dinner time - a good sign for good food. I'll visit again.

“Great lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

After a recommendation from a fellow TA member or the forums, we decided to try lunch at PHO533 and we are so glad we did. My wife had the beef stew and I the Banh Mi and Pho. Both bowls were plentiful and reasonably priced. My bread was delicious as was the rest of my sandwich, and my Pho came with the traditional sprouts and mint.

The restaurant is large and very nicely decorated; the service is friendly; the prices reasonable. Apps were pricey next to the lunch dish prices. Prices for wine and beer were very reasonable.

We’ll be coming back on a regular basis.

“Really good Pho”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We had vegetarian pad thai, pork vermicelli and beef pho - all very tasty. The prices for apps were a bit high, but main courses are very economical right on target. The server & owners are extremely personable and welcoming. Really good experience - we will be back.
