Nice place with a good atmosphere. The servings are on the small side for the price. We got three steamed mushroom buns which were tasty but too expensive at $4 each or 3 for $12.

I ordered take out.Ordered a Beef brisket Pho Bowl and a mushroom steam bun. Both were very good. I had the slaw and mayo for the bun on the side so I could taste for spicy. Because of this I think the little bit of...mushroom for the steam bun was sparce. If there was more mushrooms it would have been 5 stars. It was very tasty though. First time trying this type of food.More

Glad you enjoyed your experience. Not surprised your mushroom steam bun looked lonely with two of the three ingredients removed.

I ordered a banh mi, which purported to have "Filipino-style fried pork belly". The sandwich was decent, though the spanky sauce tasted a little like 1000 Island dressing. And unless that fried pork belly was spit-roasted for hours over an open fire pit, y'all should...stop calling it "Filipino-style". The Trippel OH beer was good, though. Stick to what you know.More

Howdy Cookie! Thanks for taking the time to review our spot. There are lots of different preparations of pork in the PH. The one you ordered, listed on our menu as Filipino Style Pork Belly, is Lechon Kawali. This is definitely a traditional cooking method...More

Carol, thanks for taking the time to post a review. So glad you found us and hope you vjisit Granville again soon.

When it comes to pho, this place is certainly not a destination for it though I do appreciate the attempt and effort the chef put into it. I had the rare beef pho, and there was waaaaaaaaaaay too much noodles in the bowl, and there...was hardly any broth. I can't tell you if the broth was good or not, since it was so little and the noodles (that usually has no flavor, hence the broth to make it flavorful) was overpowering. I did try the the sweet and spicy cauliflower as a side since I love cauliflower, and that was quite the treat! I enjoyed it very much, and it was a sizable portion (even as a side). I appreciate that there is Vietnamese food in Granville, so I most likely will come again. But I'll try some of the other items next time.More

Glad you will return for more of our Viet inspired street food. Don't blame you for feeling bad about the overwhelming volume of noodles in your pho because its all about the broth. If your ever get too many noodles again be sure to say...More

Perhaps we had too high expectations, but we were not overly impressed. We had Banh Mi - pulled pork on a baquette with spicy mayo, ginger slaw, cucumber. A bit different, but lacking a wow factor. Also a chicken noodle bowl, rice noodles, cucumber, carrot..., sprouts , peanut sauce etc. This was also lacking a Wow factor and seemed like it could have been made by anyone putting everything together. Not bad but not special either. Also had chicken steamed buns. Someone tasty, but rather bland. We found the dinners to be also 'chain' like with staff assembling items rather that uniquely cooking. Food was Ok, but not the experience we had hoped based on previous experience with Vienamese food. Staff was very nice and efficient. You can order at the counter and sit in one half. Or sit in the other half where there is full bar and waitress service. This location is also Three Tigers brewpub with a full assortment of beer and a full bar with specialty drinks. Guessing this is a popular night time establishment. $25 for lunch which is normally not bad, but portions were small for this amount.More

I was a bit skeptical about this place. When a co-worker tried to describe the food it didn't make it much better. There are something's you just have to try and this place is one of them. I have the noodle bowl with pork belly....It was wonderful. the Pork belly was crisp and the noodles were cooked just right. I have two issues, the first being that I would have liked more pork belly, more vegetables and a little less noodle but maybe this is just how it is meant to be served. The second complaint is that I wasn't very spicy and I would have liked the option to add spice. Maybe like a calm, medium and blazing option. The condiments on the table helped to add a bit of kick. I do plan on going back and trying the sandwich and rice bowl as well.More

Love their noodle dishes! The rice noodles with pork are savory and Mai Chau provides the fresh garnishes (cilantro, bean sprouts, other piquant greens) separately for you to add yourself. Other dishes come complete, and range from spring rolls to wheat noodles and more. We...eat here at least monthly; my husband likes their microbrews quite a bit. Great place to have locally!More
