Really enjoyed the food here; first time eating Vietnamese. Lots of different things to try. Recommend if you are in the mood for something a little different.

Love this pho restaurant! The pho - several styles of Vietnamese noodle soup with a deep, savory broth - is excellent. Service is extremely friendly, it's located in convenient Jefferson Square in Denbigh, and is affordable! Thanks!

I had never had Vietnamese food before and our sailor grandson took us here for lunch one day. We had a pork/shrimp/noodle soup that was delicious!!!!!! He and his navy buddies go there quite often for lunch and dinner both. Restaurant is clean, service was good.

We visit Pho regularly for lunch. The Pho is delicious. Also enjoy their egg rolls and Vietnamese coffee. The staff is friendly and you are served quickly.

Clean, fast and good food. Nothing fancy, but solid pho, and other dishes. The Bun dishes are quite large and tasty

We are so lucky to have this quality Vietnamese food here in Newport News. The clientele is local patrons that love Vietnamese dishes. Everything we have ordered here is awesome . Our favorite is the barbecue meat on a stick with noodles. Pho is outstanding. When you are done you go to the bar to pay.

I have been to this joint several times and the people are great. The food is authentic and I always walk away completely satisfied and full. I have eaten at many noodle shops but this one is clean, courteous and very tasty food. Try their shrimp on sugar cane they are the bomb.

Looking for a trip advisor reviewed local restaurant. This was one of the best Vietnamese meals we have had. Definately recommend Fried tofu with vermicelli noodles, Lemongrass pork skewers and cha gio appetizer. The chicken fried rice was very tasty but did not like the meat used. Good amount of seating, nice atmosphere. Located in a strip mall, don't let... More

I met some friends here who have never eaten Vietnamese. They liked it! I got the beef and meatball pho soup. It was tasty. They have all of the additional condiments in the table to spice up your soup- sriracha. The fresh spring rolls are outstanding.
