We've tried many Beef Pho, including those from Vietnam. But the beef noodles at Pho Kim Long has got to be the best! Huge portion of noodles with loads of ingredients at an affordable price. The taste of the soup was sweet and rich. Good to the last slurp!

Everything is good here. Try the crab noodle soup. It's super tasty. But come early. This is place is super popular during lunch.

Kim long is a good place to have food either solo or with family or friends. The price is affordable for most people in Bay Area.

Ate a lot of Pho national wide. Ordered #1 The soup base is OK. Enough beef in the bowl. It came out fast. The biggest problem is- the soup is only warm at best. After you put the bean spouse in. The meal is not hot enough. Large bowl is close to $10, kind of high. I had to ask... More

This has always been my favorite place to go for beef noodle soup because they are very generous with the meat and the both is very flavorful. This morning it was a big disappointment when I ordered the usual pho. The flavor was off. The broth was both salty and sugary, not a deep rich flavor you get from simmering... More
