This is by far my favorite Pho place by far! It is so good and they make it really fast. There are many different options too

This is my go to spot for Vietnamese food with friends and family groups. Everything is always fresh and tasty, and the food is prepared quickly. It is a cute little spot in the Trader Joe's shopping center. Service could use some improvement in terms of checking in with customer after food is delivered, checking water glasses, etc. Takeout here... More

The food was tasty and the menu was plentiful, but the service was sketchy. We were ignored once the entree arrived.

The people that work here are very friendly, the prices are reasonable, the food is delicious. I have eaten at a number of Vietnamese restaurants but this one has been the best. It is very clean and the service is quick. I have been there to eat lunch and also dinner. I personally like #25 vermicelli noodles with grilled chicken... More

I used to live within walking distance of the best Vietnamese restaurants in the Stockton Blvd. corridor, but since moving out to the burbs, pickings are notably slim. We used to frequent Pho Bac Hoa Viet on Madison Ave, but it has gotten dirty and the food and service are no longer what they were. Imagine my surprise when I... More

It's a good idea to be wary when you walk into a restaurant and it's empty. Well, there was a screaming child, actually. I think the food was okay but I was so distracted by the bizarre service that I don't really remember. An empty restaurant should ensure attentive service, right? It didn't happen that way. The two people who... More

Food is average. We tried the take out. I ordered the seafood noodle soup. The broth is a little sweet. The best part is they pack the vegetables and seafood separately so everything is very fresh. We also ordered grilled beef with vermicelli, it was good, just not as flavorful as one would expect. The restaurant is in quail point... More

I eat here frequently. I love everything I've tried and I especially love how good I feel after I eat here. My fiancé loves it to and he's typically a burger and Pepsi kind of guy. When I want to eat out but don't feel like eating a ton of calories we eat here. It's hard to find anything in... More

The Pho here is consistently very good and sometimes is excellent. I like the well done brisket. My daughter always goes for the Chicken Pho. I think she would eat there every day if we would let her. They went through a stage shortly after they opened where the Pho broth wasn't as good as it had been when they... More

A big draw for us when looking for a pho restrurant is the flavorful broth. Pho #1's broth is totally lacking in taste. It's like they've put the noddles, veggies and meat in plain hot water. Or have watered down the soup base to the point of no taste at all. Too bad, because when they first opened this restrurants... More
