We were invited by a friend for her birthday dinner. The place is actually spacious inside and ambience was fine. The Pho has reached my expectations. On the side, our family is actually trying out various Vietnamese restaurants and compare. So far this the 2nd best we tasted in Richmond. Desserts and smoothies are good. Reasonable price and enough free... More

I'm bit of a pho connoisseur, the broth was on par 4/5. Service 4/5. Atmosphere 2.5/5 loud sports TV playing. Good eats in the area. I'd go again.

While staying overnight at the Accent Inn near the airport, we walked the 1km to get something a little lighter then pub food. Its right on par with the majority of Pho restaurants we frequent in Victoria.

I've eaten a lot of pho in my time... and this place is the best I've ever had. The broth is flavorful, the noodles are done well, and most notably to me, their beef brisket is tender, and very non-fatty. Many pho places I eat at, I usually end up looking at the brisket and saying to myself, "Really?". There... More

This particular Vietnamese restaurant is located on Number 5 Road (at Cambie Road) in the stripmall near the Shoppers Drug Mart. We went out for a late lunch at 2:00 after my workout at the gym. As expected it wasn’t very busy for this time of day but there were probably 10 customers total eating inside and some on the... More

Visited this place with friends from out of town and they were very impressed with the food. They were Asian by origin so I guess their opinion is what I am basing this review. I personally found the service very good and friendly the food was served quickly and really hot. I have had equally good Pho in other places.

I came here on two separate visits and tried the Pho Tai Gan (Vietnamese noodles with tendon and rare beef), the Beef Vermicelli (rice noodle with spring roll and minced beef), and the solo Spring Roll. Starting with the pho, the broth here is amazing. It comes out amazingly clear but full of flavour. The broth comes as a side... More

My daughter and I stopped by for dinner to Pho Boi. We love Pho and have tried many restaurants in Vancouver and around the Lower Mainland. Pho Boi is right up there among the best! Really nice staff. We felt welcomed and well looked after. Enjoyed our pho and rolls and will defintely be back!

I've eaten in twice and take out once. Each and every time the food has been wonderful. The service is very attentive and the staff very pleasant. The prices are so affordable that with the combination of it all I hope this restaurant will be in business a long long time!
