However great the food is at Pho DaKao, and trust me, it is amongst the best in Worcester, it's definitely Vietnamese. Absolutely first rate.

This seems like a neighborhood Asian eatery with an extensive menu. The serving staff was not only helpful in describing the dishes, they even demonstrated the art of rolling large rice paper sheets around assorted vegetables and meat. They also helped us choose the appropriate condiments and dipping sauces. We enjoyed the food, the experience and learning a little about... More

Went here early on a Friday evening and I'm so happy we did! It was perfect. Our waitress was fabulous. The menu is large. Pho Dakao isn't just soup! It has many dishes such as pad tai and spring rolls. I suggest trying the fried spring rolls. They were the best I've ever had. Their drinks are delicious and cheap!... More

The food was very good. They have a small but good selection of Saki. We shared the spring rolls, Mongolian Beef and Chicken with Lemon grass. I would go back any time.

We visited twice in the period of the five days (and on the only days we were free for dinner) spent in Worcester at a symposium this Summer. Both meals were marvelous. We learned from the first (watching the bounty on other tables) what we wanted to try on our second visit. The pho was first rate: rich, complex broth,... More
