Great happy hour, lots of regulars/locals, friendly staff. Love the mini pho - chicken or beef. Beef skewers are delicious.

This place is hard to find and harder to park. You really have to park in the structure behind it, but there is no charge for the parking. I eat primarily vegan and this place is ideal for me. They make delicious pho and have one that is totally vegan. I have been told the other ones are also good.... More

Discovered this restaurant by accident and absolutely love it. My partner and I had a great time the two times we have been there. At a reasonable price, the special pho is excellent with a tasty broth and rivals any other that I've had since the UK. The tuna ahi rolls were also very tasty. The staff are extremely kind... More

This was outstanding. The speed of service and quality was second to none. Great place to find well prepared authentic Vietnamese food. All of the staff were friendly and attentive

We ate at Phans 55 with a few friends in early September I was disappointed with the food. I thought it would be more flavorful. I chose this restaurant based on other reviews. I would not recommend this particular restaurant

Nothing good to say. Very noisy. apathetic staff. Pretends to be Asian fusion but is nothing more than an untrained fast food kitchen staff preparing Panda Express quality food at fine dining prices. STAY AWAY

The food is fair--one of my favorites, the Vietnamese crepe was prepared to poorly that it was falling apart. The fish was well prepared, the summer rolls were only so-so. I have prepared better ones myself. The prices are high and the service was mediocre. We will not be returning! Maybe it was because it was Sunday night and it... More

I hesitated to review it because I want to be able to get in whenever I wqnt. I finally decided that having it over run was better than losing it. It is in a sort of out of the way place, inside a huge apartment complex. Use your navigation system to find it. The food is heavenly, almost as good... More

We ate here recently for the first time. On Monday nights sometimes restaurants in general can be a hit or miss. Clearly this culinary wonder takes pride in maintaining great standards seven days a week. From start to finish everything that crossed our palate was amazing. Some dishes reminded us of Slanted Door in San Francisco which is another favorite... More

I have been dining at Phans55 for years, and it, either the Irvine or Fullerton location, continues to be one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in Orange County. One reason is that they use very fresh and high quality ingredients. For lunch, try one of the Vietnamese Baguettes. For dinner there many excellent dishes but the Claypot is one of... More
