I have been here numerous times. Service is always excellent and food is authentic! Crispy spring rolls are amazing. Pho is some of the best of the best around! Noodle bowls are also excellent! If you have the tolerance and the acquired taste, I highly rocommend the Durian Boba! Their Bahn Mi pork sandwich is out of this world!

First of all--this has the wrong address! The correct address is 9941 Hazard Avenue. they moved in 2015. The old address is in an interesting Vietnamese Mall--the new address is free-standing. It is a very humble decor, but delicious food and very reasonable. The Pho was delicious, $8-10 for a huge bowl (the "small" is plenty big). I liked the... More

I love love love their soup! OMG- I can't stop sipping the soup. Oxtail is also very good here~ This place can get very busy, so be aware for waiting time! Oh, and make sure to bring $$, cash only.

I'm not sure why but their broth and their meat have the best taste here compared to other pho places around. It's cash only, the parking can get tight, and the place can get crowded at certain times. But even when it's crowded they move quickly to get you seated when someone leaves. I come here at least twice a... More

Recently went to Pho 79 on a recommendation and I can now pass along the recommendation. It's a no frills place in the Little Saigon area of Westminster. They promptly delivered two steaming bowls of Pho (one veggie and one pork) with ingredients to add (thai basil, bean sprouts, and a green leafy herb that I couldn't identify). The food... More

Had a hard time finding this place but was worth the extra time. Soup base is rich and flavorful and you don't feel the MSG aftertaste. Beef is fresh and noodle cooked just right.

I followed a Zagat recommendation to this place, inside the Asian Garden Mall, with some expectations given the glowing write ups it had had, though I managed my own expectations so as not to be disappointed. Let me say - I was shocked how awesome a meal we had. Two of us, shared a large bowl of Pho #32 -... More

PHO 79 is considered to be a historical Vietnamese restaurant that was established over 20 years. The soup is amazing and it comes in 3 sizes. The noodles are very soft and the service is really quick. They won over 20 Zagat awards and the lines is an obvious sign. The location is hidden and the parking is somewhat limited.... More

I had a few pho in California but the only place that really hit the spot was Pho 79 in little saigon mall. It was really delicious. The broth was so tasty the meat was on point. The service was okay not the best but the pho made up for it.

This is the best authentic pho in the area. I went to this location for a very long time. Just too bad they close early since they're inside of the Asian Garden Mall. Also I try to not come here on the weekend during the busy because...there are absolutely no parking! Come about an hour before they close or early... More
