especially when you order a sugarless carrot apple ginger fresh natural juice and get orange water with pile of sugar, send it back and get the same orange water , just without the sugar, which even the waiter admitted has little carrot and then water. and then get charged for it,even though you said it is not what you expected....

I believe this is a good restaurant, slightly over the average. Nothing fancy, nothing complicated. Even though I had higher expectations, my meal was good. The spring rolls were really good, I ordered the regular vegetarian ones. The peanut sauce was good. There are other options around, but this is a good one. I had a Pho plate as main... More

This is NOT authentic Pho. The noodles were not pho noodles it was vermicellin noodles. The broth and beef were ok. More like Costa Rican inspired Pho. It was too expensive for what we got. But at least they gave us a discount 😏💸. Still not worth the price $. -A Very Disappointed Vietnamese

We dined at Pho last night, after a long and hectic day of driving. Our waiter, Carlos, was just what we needed..Great sense of humor, good recommendations, and willing to use his excellent English so we wouldn't have to struggle with our limited Spanish. The Vietnamese food was excellent and very fresh. I highly recommend the shrimp bun on rice... More

The restaurant significantly improved since my last visit years ago. The personal is very nice, actually the waiter move one table to inside due to the windy condition outside. He was very courteous and offered an explanation of the main dishes. The ginger lemonade was pretty good and I tried the apple - pineapple - mint, very refreshing. the food... More

I checked this place on Facebook and was sooo wanting to go there and try the food. Sorry to say, it was a horrendous experience. The food was not good, but the service was lame, making the overall experience even worse. She would not crack a smile and when we asked what the beverages were, she just said: it's in... More

We were looking forward to Vietnamese food after reading the reviews. Positives were the fresh mint 'lemonade' - really delicious. We asked for 'nuoc mam' (traditional sauce) with the very fresh shrimp 'goi cuon' and were given straight fish sauce. Although we asked for the description of the 'bun nem nuong' (traditionally a salad of cooked rice noodles, fresh prawns,... More

I went to Pho yesterday for lunch with a Tico friend. The place is small but open and nicely decorated. I had excellent, fresh, tasty spring-rolls for starters. They always have a nice healthy crunch to them. They were served with a little dipping peanut sauce. Main course I had the shrimp in yellow curry with rice which was excellent... More
