We just can't stay away from Pho Bo Vang. This is my favorite Pho in the south OC area. Family owned. Consistently good.

We stopped in for a quick lunch at Pho Bo Vang and really liked it. I had the Goi Cuon and the Pork Bon, both of which were very good.

A number of us go from work for lunch at Pho Bo Vang. Quality is consistently good. Spartan but clean.

Visited here in May and now have returned in June. From the appearance, you wouldn’t think it was that good but it is. The spring rolls were excellent and the Pho... Excellent!

Pho Bo Vang is consistently delicious. We routinely have lunch here. Reliably good in an unpretentious area.

We enjoy good pho. Came down from Monterey and happened to be staying in a hotel up the street. My husband enjoys beef pho with tendon and tripe. The soup tasted really good, the tendon is cut differently but still yummy. I had the soup with shrimp, crab, and BBQ pork-loved it. We also enjoyed the calamari appetizer that was... More

There are always people in lunch time. Although might be companies nearby, it still means that the food is comparingly good here! with only 2~3 USD more, you get almost twice as big bowl of pho as the standard size one. I like the taste and quantity of the food here. The price is reasonable. Like it.

I drove by this place a couple times and was craving soup one day so stopped by for lunch. It does get a little busy for lunch but it is some of the best pho I have ever had. I have been here a couple times since and it is always very good. I can't wait for the weather to... More

A coworker introduced me to this place and I've gone back regularly since. The seating space is limited, so if you're going for lunch, get there early. On gloomy days, their pho broth is just the comfort food I need!
