“Always a good meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

I have been going to Pho Vietnam for many years. My family and I love it. BUT time to change the menu. My daughter was visiting and she hasn't been there with us for a very long time. We went there for dinner and she was amazed that the menu was still the same. I guess we are bored with it too. When they first opened they served salmon dishes and some other different things. There aren't even any new specials on the board which used to appear daily. It's still very good but if you like to go a lot, it's pretty boring after while. Not a good thing to be complacent when you are a restaurant.

“Tiny Place, Very Popular, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

It's very busy, this tiny place and we thought the food was very good. Would probably not order their version of Pad Thai again but then they don't claim to be a Thai restaurant. We did take out. Would definitely go back.

“Good food, nice little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We went there for dinner on a Saturday night, and the place was very busy: we had to wait for 20 or 30 minutes (no reservations accepted for parties smaller than 6), but the food was well worth the wait (it also took awhile for our orders to be prepared). We started with some appetizers: ginger dumplings and some mussels. Both were delicious, although I enjoyed the mussels more. We also tried some of the hot and sour soup which was flavorful, but excessively salty. Next time I will ask if they can reduce the salt. The entrees we ordered were good: I liked the noodle dishes the best. At the table next to us they ordered the "big soups", which looked really good (no need to order the XL size, since regular is already huge). I'll try one of these on my next visit, and also ask if they can go easy on the salt. A couple of other items:
- parking was very easy, even on a busy Sat evening
- they serve no alcohol, but you can buy a bottle of wine right nearby, and bring it over

Good family Pho place, price a little higher than average and Vietnamese egg rolls came naked without lettuce... but overall food not bad, will go back.

“Oh Pho!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

One of the best places around but so slow, so loud, and so busy. Pho has take out and if you are seated waiting for service notice how many people come in to pick up their food. This slows down the whole "in house" process. So you wait. Pho was an overnight success and the food is excellent. The waitstaff is at warp speed but the place is too small and too loud to have an enjoyable meal, hence the take outs. Go early.
