I was walking in the Pearl District and chose this restaurant by its menu selections. Good food, friendly staff and outdoor seating made my lunch memorable in all good ways.

A little more expensive, but the experience is much nicer. Staff is a hit and miss... Some are nice, others, I am not sure why they are in the service work. Food is adequate and somewhat generic for the Caucasian taste buds. Nicely decor and clean. If you just want Pho, there are other options.

We got there just as it started to rain. The place made you feel welcome no muss or fuss. We followed Blane H's advice “Amazing.......I will tell you how we do it...”, follow this to the letter and you will have a phenomenal dining experience!

Went there twice. Really great Vietnamese food. Service prompt but a bit cold. Relaxing ambience music.

Not bad. Lunch was great tasting. We recommend the spring rolls and the chicken wings. Number 51 is great. The ambiance is quiet nice too.

We read many of the reviews, friends even suggested this restaurant, but we were disappointed. We read that the guava margaritas were excellent, that this was an upscale Vietnamese restaurant, and that the honey wings were splendid. My margarita was filled to the brim, so much so that it spilled all over the table and was a sticky mess and... More

Pho Van has a variety of entrees to choose from on their menu. However, my goal was to find a delicious Pho for lunch with friends. This Pho Van location offers at least eleven different varieties of Pho. I ordered the Tai Chin and my friends ordered the Tai Sach. Our meals arrived hot and very flavorful, including fresh Basil...

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. it was quiet early on (11am), but while we were there it filled up quite a bit. The service was good ... although there is a bit of a language hump to get over. (But I know the server's English was better than my non-existent Vietnamese.) We had Pho Chin (lean brisket... More
