I wanted to like this restaurant so much I went back twice. Unfortunately, I found it was decent food but nothing to write home about. It looked great but was not that exciting. The service was impersonal and slow. I loved the old building but they had done nothing to preserve it or make it their own. If I worked... More

I think Pho Nam is a great restaurant for a quick lunch. They are a fast no-frills place with antiquated decor and excellent food. They're cheap for the amount of food you get and everything is fresh.

They serve very good pho, broth is excellent and very tender meat, and very quick service. When im back in the area I'll definitely eat their again. They only take cash.

If you are near Stanford and are looking for a Pho restaurant, look no further. The meat is tender and tasty without too much gristle or fat. The broth is nourishing and seasoned well. The vegetables are not soggy and have a bit of a crunch to them. For the discriminating appetite, they serve both small and large bowls of... More

One of our frequent pho places. Pho, vermicelli and grilled plates are all available. For a small fee you can get extra veggies w/ your pho. And the Vietnamese iced coffee is great!

Need to have cash. no credit card to pay. Please be careful before go. When arrive no one come to the front about 1 minute. Then ask us to seat whatever we can. Service is not like regular US restaurant style. Price is reasonable to think here is USA. but compare with in Vietnam, this is too expensive. I ate... More

Hot, flavorful Phở as well as vermicelli and rice dishes. I like their grilled pork over rice as option to the Phở. They serve fresh spring rolls and fried rolls too with a deliciously sweet, tart and salty dipped sauce. Their drink menu is extensive, including iced tea, coconut water and strong Vietnamese coffee served dripping over ice "Café Sua... More

An honest bowl of Pho with good quality ingredients or a bowl of bun (dry noodles) with salad ingredients and grilled pork which you dress with a vinegary sauce. Just very satisfying, very comfort food. Nothing remarkable and nothing fancy for sure, but good for what we expect.

Excellent grilled pork and egg roll Bun today for lunch. An hour later and I'm still really full. Flavor of meat was great, and service fast. The place is clean and cool, and really busy. Stop in and enjoy, the Pho aroma will make your stomach growl.

Nam has been here forever! The pho is consistently good with real flavors and authenticity. Prices are much more reasonable than other pho places nearby, and portions are filling. Soup is always hot which I like because it cooks the bean sprouts. Lukewarm broth is the worst. Very friendly service, and soup comes out fast. It's one of my regular... More
