We just ate at Pho Chau and everything we had was delicious. Large menu so there is something for everyone. Portions are big. Really cooked well given the flavor and ingredients and compares well to other top restaurants in Rochester. We will be back!

2-Spring rolls @ 2.95 are a must try, fresh as it gets. My main meal was pork and mixed vegetables (#79) at $6.95 and it was great. The service was top notch as they always kept my water full and stopped back often.

It's so hard to make a choice here, the menu is so big and everything sounds so good. The Vietnamese selections are awesome. We have only chosen Thai selections once as weren't as impressed, not sure if this was a fluke or not. The pho is really excellent! My favorite are the clay pot dishes, so unique and full of...

Spring rolls were delicious, my main dish was average...the sauce did not hold it together. This is a very busy place. Next time I would try a soup.

I have meaning to try this restaurant for quite some time. By sheer accident we chose to eat at Pho Chau last week and it was just fantastic. From the outside, it looks like there will be no chance of getting a table. On both occasions, we were straight in. Service was excellent and staff very helpful. Food absolutely delicious.... More

Maybe I just didn't order the right thing but food was ok. Our order came out quick. That was a plus for them. They do have a variety to choose from. So I guess make sure you choose the right one. I was wanting to try one of there smoothies but they make it with milk. I can't have dairy.... More

I had shrimp and crispy noodles, with vegetables, and it was absolutely delicious. The presentation was gorgeous as well. The prices were super reasonable and the portions generous. The restatuarant was clean, and the service was great. I highly recommend.

rochester is lucky to have a hidden gem like this. Chau does a great job of greeting customers and remembering their names when they return. Her food is authentic and very flavorful! You must try the iced coffee, it's amazing!!!
