Based on tripadvisor reviews, we ate dinner at Pho Kauai. It's a small pl ace, but it has plenty of seating. The menu is quite exhaustive and all the meals look great. I ordered a combination rice bowl with different seafood, and it was delicious. The prices are very reasonable too. The are closed on Sundays.

This place is so good its ridiculous! I've been eating here since I was a kid and I highly recommend it. The food is so dang delicious, its very reasonably priced, BYOB, and the service is always excellent. They are so sweet there. Sometimes I call my order in to go, and when I arrive they have it all ready... More

We stopped by on out way to the airport for a quick lunch. The Pho was amazing and not expensive (menu varied from 7-12$ per meal). Would definitely return

Located in a non-descript strip mall next to a bowling alley and sports bar. Food was solid for inexpensive dining which is hard to find in Kauai.

Really yummy pho and bun--- not the absolute best but it hit the spot. It's in the corner of a strip mall near a bowling alley. Filled with locals at dinner time. Definitely eat here if in the area. Came up to $16 for two, price is right.

Not a pricey fancy place, a local favorite and now mind. Very reasonsable. Next to bowling alley on RICE st., how can you forget that. Wanted... More

Don't be fooled by the unassuming location and appearance of this restaurant. The pho was excellent and well priced. Like most pho spots, we received our food very quickly. Perfect spot if you're in a hurry, don't want to spend a fortune, and/or are in the mood for a big, comforting bowl of soup. I can only comment on the... More

We stopped during a rain storm in Kauai. We had a friend who lived the island that took us. The first good sign was that we had to wait to be seated on a rainy afternoon. The food is authentic and tasty. The service is fast, but not intrusive. There is a diner-like atmosphere that is great. Most of the... More
