The restaurant is clean and looks new inside. It wasn't very busy when I went in. I was the only customer, but two more couples and one family (Vietnamese--I heard them speaking) did come in while I was dining with my daughter (they have high chairs--that look like they need cleaning). I ordered Pho Dat Biet, spring rolls with pork... More

We enjoyed food at this small restaurant. Set in a small strip mall, restaurant simple but nicer than described in some other reviews. We loved the pho shrimp - regular size was enormous bowl of fragrant broth, shrimp and noodles. Fried rice seasoned with cilantro, which gave it a very fresh taste. Tasty food, great value.

Good service, very good pho, spring rolls were real fresh. The place was very clean, not real fancy just a nice eating joint.

They have some of the best Pho we've ever had. I load mine up with extra lime and a lot of Hou San sauce and I just love it. You can get extra beef if you are real hungry. They have a new location near Win Co in Midvale that is just as good.

I just crave pho. There are many pho restaurants in this area. I have been to most. I've been ordering the same thing at most of them in order to really compare them. Pho Cali has the best broth of any of those I've tried. Very flavorful and not greasy. The noodle portion is quite large and they give you... More

This place is a great little place that you could easily drive by and not know it exists. It's a simple little restaurant with a great menu and the food does not disappoint. I've been to Phocali twice now and both times the service and food were awesome. I'd recommend it to anyone.

We have been in search of the best Pho in SLC. I think we have found it. This is NOTthe kind of place you take your business partners to impress them. In fact, clean clothes might be considered to be overdressed! It is just a hole-in-the-wall in a strip center. But it is clean, locally owned, and the Pho is... More

Geez! Finally! A decent Vietnamese restaurant in the Salt Lake area! I have tried so many Vietnamese restaurants looking for decent pho and bun (the vermicelli noodle salad bowl) and FINALLY I found Pho Cali. You know good pho by the soup and the soup was awesome. Fresh, flavored just right, not too salty, not too sweet, just right. And... More

Small restaurant, but the Pho broth is exceptional. The traditional garnish of bean sprouts, peppers and basil is always freshly washed and fresh looking.
