“What would lunch be without a stop to Pho Boston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

What would lunch be without a stop to Pho Boston on a given week. We have been going to Pho Boston regular for the past 10 years. The food is freah, cooked to order and served fast. The best Vietnames restaurant I've eaten in.

“Delicious Vietnamese Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

Pho Boston is a popular spot for Vietnamese food in the Hartford area. The star of the menu is pho, a Vietnamese meal soup full of meat and vegetables. The amount of variations on offer can be a little intimidating, ranging from simple bowls of chicken and noodles to more proteins more unusual to American diners, such as tripe, beef tendons and pork skins. I've exclusively had the pho here and I absolutely love it although it has ben described as "faux pho" by Vietnamese acquaintances. Be that as it may, it is still delicious and satisfying. Also, they have a wide variety of summer rolls. The summer role with sweet roast pork is fantastic and a must try if you plan on visiting.

“Love this place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2011

My wife and I come here often and are never dissapointed. The place is set up like an smaller version of an asian banquet hall. The staff is very attentive we rarely wait for a table but we've been lucky it tends to get busy at times. The staff is quick to clear tables and get another customer in. The menu is great and accomodates everything from picky eaters who are still new to the pho world to vegetarian dishes. We end up ordering the same dishes me pho seafood #34 which has the most pleasant smell and taste oh sooo good especially on a cold day. My wife gets the grilled pork with egg roll over vermicelli I think its #74 or somewhere in that # range. The food has always been great and the prices are excellent. One of the reason's why we are able to afford to eat out. The decor is ok but that's not why we come here now is it. The food is great and that's all we care about not to mention the staff it very freindly and accomodating.
