“It was OK but not the best in PB county”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

I visited this place multiple occasion and I had Pho soup each time. Very limited selection of Pho soup. They give you more noodle and less protein. The broth tasted little different each time. Lack of consistency in the flavor of the soup. You pay few bucks more than Pho 16 or Vietnamese Express Cafe. Service is slow because the wife handles cash register, wait customers, help her husband in the kitchen and helps grocery store next door they own. Not a place to go if you are in a hurry. Hot Pot is good but ingredients are mostly vegetable and frozen meat & fish cake. I rather go to the one in WP.

“Great little place for PHO ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

There pho is very good and highly recommended. I'm also a frequent customer here. Friendly family owned establishment. Very authentic menu at excellent prices. Also this place is located in Lake Park not west Palm, just south of Northlake Blvd which is north of West Palm.

“The best in WPB area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

My family and I were down in West Palm on vacation and thought we'd try some different Vietnamese restaurants (as there seemed to be quite a few choices). Out of all the places we tried, this one was the best hands down!

The pho is light, yet very flavorful. In a later conversation with the owner, I would discover that they do not use any MSG. Veggies were super fresh as were the noodles. We also had several different appetizers which were great as well. We did not have a chance to try the "hot pot" experience, but think of it as a self-serve habachi in a Japanese restaurant (if it existed). Patrons can go to a cooler and pick out which veggies & meat they want, then bring them back to their tables to cook on the hot pot (griddle).

Overall, a great place to go for authentic southern Vietnamese! We will be back next year!!

“excellent bowl of deliciousness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We no longer have the great Pho from Nick's Double Dragon in Port St. Lucie since he sold the restaurant. I decided to try Pho and hot pot in Lake Park, FL based on some good reviews online. We stopped on the way home from the airport. We each had a bowl of pho. Mine was the Pho Tai with beef, Sherry had the seafood pho. Both were excellent. It starts with great broth. All the spices and herbs were available as usual. It was a big bowl, lots of rice noodles. We asked for some additional bean sprouts and there they were (at no additional charge). The service was excellent. The menu is small but there are photos of the dishes and they all look great. One day we will try the hot pot.

“Neighbourhood family restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

NOTE*** This restaurant is in Lake Park FL, not GA as the listing indicates. Check the zip code.***

Pho and Hot Pot was a find for us. We usually go to the Vietnamese Express when we are in the area, but it was closed for renovation so a search on the iPad brought us to this place.

The facilities are spacious and clean if a little stark, but that is typical of pho restaurants everywhere. The food however is excellent. The spring rolls were crispy and flavourful and most importantly served hot and not greasy. The pho was also very good, with a generous portion of beef, beef balls, tripe and tendon.

We will definitely come here again.
