This was my first visit. Have usually gone to Linh’s Bistro for Vietnamese food. The inside of restaurant was decorated with style. The service was excellent. They had a very busy lunch business. I had the Spicy chicken pho and an order of 3 egg...rolls. The egg rolls were pretty good but didn’t appear to be made on site. The Pho was very good. Prices were reasonable for current economic conditions. Will be going back.More

Wat Da Pho was OK. Service was not particularly good or friendly. Menu selection of primarily Vietnamese was unimpressive. Portion size was pretty small, the atmosphere was plain, and the food was rather bland. I guess it was trying but it was not a good...experience for me.More

The Pho was PHOnomenal considering this was my phirst time eating Pho. ;) Definitely a phantastic phirst experience! Only complaint was that when my husband tried to order from the app it had issues and just sat there spinning without placing the order. He called...the store to place the order and said it was for delivery since we were in a hotel nearby (within a mile and a half from the location) and was told okay, but once the order was in and he asked what the delivery fee was he was told he had to come pick it up. Not a big deal since they were close by but we'd been driving most of the day and it would have been better to have it delivered. -shrug- Still great Pho! Pho-gedda-bouddit!More

We eat here when we are in the area. They have the best Pho we have found in the Dayton area. We Love their spring rolls with the peanut sauce also.

This was our 1st visit to Wat Da Pho, and we really enjoyed it. There were 4 of us for dinner and we had 3 pho noodle bowls and one noodle and chicken dish. Highly recommend the noodle bowls. I had the steak and brisket...bowl, and I added an extra noodle and asked for it to be spicy....it was excellent!!! Extra noodle for $1 is a must, and spicy means 🌶spicy, not burn you up, but spicy with a good taste... Our waitress was very friendly and recommended an authentic dish when we asked, it was and egg and rice cake dish...very good. We did notice alot of carryout orders being picked up, so that is an option also. We definitely will be back!!More

Huge menu, quick service, take-out available. So many choices, difficult to decide. You’ll probably get a doggy bag because of large portions. Friendly wait staff.

My wife and I are fans of Vietnamese food (USA version) and Wat da Pho stands out locally with the quality of it's food and service. They do offer a few 'home cooking' items for the more adventuresome eater, something I enjoy, and those I’ve...tried are excellent. Good food, good prices, good location.More

Stopped while traveling through Dayton as it was close to the hotel and was not disappointed! The beef pho was terrific, spiced just right. And the summer spring rolls very good as well. But the crispy fried tofu was out of this world!! Good service...and reasonable prices made for a nice evening spent outside the car 🤪More

I love coming here. I think the food is great. Service is great however, their military discount is exclusively active duty. I have received the discount in here previously but the last time I was in and produced my blue, retired (23 years active duty)...ID, I was told “Active Duty only” I think they’re either misinformed or uninformed. Will I be back? Probably, but I’m not going to like it.More

I had their Sub Sandwich (aka bahn mi) and the Everything Salad. Both were good, just not great. Better than most, just not as good as some. If you aren't blessed to have a truly great Vietnamese close by (as I am) then you will...be more than pleased with Wat Da Pho's offerings.More

I've been exposed to Viet Namese food for many years as one of my best friends is from Nha Trang, Viet Nam. He has taken me to many restaurants to include those along Buford Highway in Atlanta and in Santa Ana, California, where authenticity is...the standard rather than the exception. Wat Da Pho now, thanks to their new management, joins the list of authentic Viet Namese restaurants I have visited. My wife and I started-off with Goi Cuon (Soft Spring Rolls), which were carefully made to perfection. What a fine way to set-up our bowls of pho!!! As always, I had Pho Dac Biet, with generous portions of noodles, beef, tripe and tendon. The "game changer" with any pho is the broth and the broth here is rich and bounds with authentic flavors...not like that of others in the area, of slightly flavored boiled water. I knew I was in for a treat just by the smell of the exquisite combinations. The same can be said of my wife's Pho Tai Nam. The look on her face with the first sample "said it all." So bottom line...Give Wat Da Pho a try and I promise you...you'll be back.More

My husband and I stopped here on Sunday because we had been traveling a few days and really felt like we needed some quality food and Pho always makes us feel better. The staff was friendly and attentive. The Pho was some of the best...we’ve ever had and at excellent prices. And fast! We got our food very quickly. We almost got some to take home but were worried it would be sloshing around too much on our 5 hr drive home. You can bet we will be back if we are in the area or passing thru!More
