“A nice blend of old and new”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Pho 16 is a nice blend of old and new, Vietnamese and American, and the staff tries their best to please. They have mastered the McDonald-ization of a Vietnamese tradition, pho, which we eat three times a day, whenever we get a chance. The rice noodles are cooked al dente to perfection, the meat is sliced thin and unlike most Americanized other pho place, do not overpower the broth and the noodles, and the amount of basil, bean sprouts and lime served is just perfect, not wasteful. The different types of fresh sping rolls are excellent as well as other appetizers, big enough to share. And if you ever decide to try something else beside pho, there are 4 other types of noodles to sample as well as 3 regional varieties of Vietnamese cooking, Add the rice dishes which highlight the flavor of traditional Asian spices and healthy organic ingredients, and you are in for a surprisingly affordable business lunch or quick evening breakaway from home.

“Don't expect to dine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

Vietnamese food is essentially street food. If you keep this in mind, you will enjoy Pho 16.
We've been there three times and each time the food has been tasty and filling. We have enjoyed both the pho and noodle dishes. Prices are very reasonable and the service is (maybe too) efficient. You order, get your food, eat and leave, all within an hour tops. If you've never had Vietnamese food, I suggest you read up on it before you go. That way you won't be surprised by what comes to the table.

“Delicious Authentic Vietnamese Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

I settled in to a tasty generous plate of tempura shrimp, everyone at the table enjoyed them and one guest ordered a ate to go. I had my favorite a steaming bowl of Pho with shrimp. The noodles (home made) are delicious and the broth with traditional fresh herbs mouthwatering. You can blend your spices from the variety available on each table. Service is prompt and attentive. Atmosphere is plain. Well worth a repeat visit.

“Good Pho!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

My family LOVES pho, so we were excited to try this place. The menu offered a vast selection of vietnamese food. Our family ordered the spring rolls, roast quail, shrimp fried rice and 3 orders of pho. We were very pleased with all of it except the peanut sauce that accompanied the spring rolls. Would go back for sure!

“good Pho”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Not completely authentic but sure is the best in Vietnamese food in Treasure Coast areas. Only restaurants from Virginia, Orlando and California can out do this place. Don't let the restaurant unassuming and plain appearance deter you from trying some good Vietnamese food here. Food is actually made fresh and served by a Vietnamese family
