$15 bucks for traditional pad thai is probably $3-4 over priced. It was thai food but not the best I have ever had.

Friend and i ordered total of 4 dishes, including appetizer assortment and drunken noodles. Delicious appetizers, and the drunken noodles were so good it will be difficult for me to be sufficiently adventurous to order anything different in the future. Extremely satisfied. (This was takeout,...with the order being phoned in well in advance and everything went perfectly smoothly with pickup at appointed hour.)More

Stumbled upon this little gem. Great food, great service. Really enjoyed it. Portions are very big, ask to take leftovers home.

A very lovely, small cozy restaurant , beautiful decor, gracious staff and most of all huge, varied menu and excellent food and presentation. Having been to Vietnam and eaten in restaurants galore this one will be a No.1. Also when you see Asian customers, you...know it is great cause it passes the test. JUST LIKE GRANMA MADE!.More

Met a friend from the area for lunch. It was a nice atmosphere in a convenient shopping center at Hillcrest and germantown pike. Be careful as I think they moved so make sure you have the most up to date address off Germantown Pike behind...the Friendly's. We started with the appetizer sampler which was a wonderful selection. Two of everything and each was delish with a few sauces to choose from. Could have made a lunch of that only. Ordered the brisket and steak Pho. The dish of fresh basil, bean sprouts, lime wedges came first in all it's freshness. The pho came after our sampler. The noodles, broth and beef were great. Love this place and will come again and it's reasonable. Can't wait to go back and try something else.More

We recently moved to this area, looking for noodle / Thai food. We took chance w Pho Thai Nam. We had Basil sauteed dish( vegetarian) and Vietnamese spring roll as appetizer. We enjoyed both,the Basil dish was in a special sauce & very tasty. The...spring roll were thin vermicelli in rice paper . We would order again, probably to eat in. It looks quite busy on weekends..It's BYO.More

Yes, if you're in the area and NEED a bowl of Pho, this is your place! Stopped here for lunch when they opened and I was already the 3rd table there. By the time I left, the place was packed! That should tell you how...good it is. Had the veggie Pho, which come with beef broth, but vegan broth is an option. Also, try the Thai fish cakes. Really good.More

This is a lovely restaurant located in East Norriton, Pa. My wife had the grilled pork on rice dinner which was very good and I had the roasted duck which was crispy and tasty sautéed in a basil sauce with vegetables. The waiter was friendly...and professional as he explained the different dishes on the menu. Every thing we had was good. We look forward to visiting this restaurant again.More

We had our family dinner at Pho Thai Nam restaurant since my sister-in-law knew the owners. The appetizer sampler was delicious. Food is good and comes our very quickly. Good restaurant to try out if you’re in the area.

I appreciate this restaurant for a number of reasons: 1) First and foremost the dishes I have tasted over about half dozen visits were not over-Americanized by adding too many sweet notes. The food is nuanced, neither too sweet nor too spicy. 2)The entrees do...not lack for differentiation. 3) The heat is available by choice and of course indicated on the menu. 4) Fine Tom Yum soup (shrimp), summer rolls and other choice appetizers. Menu balanced between Thai and Vietnamese offerings. 5) Service attentive, personable and professional. We were celebrating a birthday, stayed about 20 minutes beyond closing time and staff acted graciously; quietly and unobtrusively reset the dining room for the next day without so much as a sideways glance. Be aware that, as in many Asian restaurants, it is difficult to modify a menu offering, e.g. trying to have the sauce from one dish substitute in another dish. The tendency is to stick to the menu offerings as closely as possible. (My wife has an allergic issue with soy sauce and had some trouble communicating with the staff to make some changes. To the server's credit (and mutual patience) and his obvious desire to please they eventually worked it out.) A desire to be customer-focused goes a long way. Very much enjoyed the red curry, the sweet and sour sautee (chicken), vermicelli with pork and other dishes I have tried as well. I have noticed that menu prices have increased, I believe more than once over the past year or two. I do hope they don't price themselves out of their market. I consider the food prices still within reason but value (defined as the relationship between price and quality of experience) has diminished some. I give this restaurant high grades for food, service, ambience and professionalism and intend to return when I am in the area.More

Some friends and I were getting together for dinner and chose Pho Thai Nam as a central location based on good reviews. What a great plan! We were greeted and seated quickly. The venue is relaxed, clean and comfortable, great for catching up. We all...started with a Japanese ginger dressing salad (GREAT choice). For meals, I got the Pad Thai with chicken (OUTSTANDING) and my friends the Bun Dac Biet (Deluxe Vermicelli Bowl - Char-broiled chicken, pork and shrimp in a marinade with mince lemon grass and served with rice vermicelli) and the Tom Yum (Thai style hot & sour soup with mushroom, onion, tomato & bell pepper in a lemon grass/lime juice broth). I didn’t try the other entrees but they were reported as tasting great. Over all, the food was very flavorful but not spicy. Portions were large – I took ½ of my Pad Thai home. Total cost for 3 men, $74 before the tip. I’m definitely going back with my wife! I highly recommend Pho Thai Nam!More
