“Assembly Line Pho”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Although my wife and I have had Pho here a few times, we find it a bit lacklustre in a few ways. There is always an overabundance of MSG, and the broth is often a bit thin. The Bo Vien are usually sparse, the tripe is good, the nam is sparse, and the tai is generous. in a Pho Dac Beit, I would like to see some tendon but does not happen.
The food here is consistent

We will continue to go there until another decent nearby pho restaurant is found or we get seduced by some of the traditional Cantonese restaurants nearby.

“Average pho for the hungry masses.”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

On a wintery night, Pho Hung looks very warm and inviting and is usually quite full.
The food is OK, the service is OK, the prices are a bit high. If you are craving pho and in a hurry, it is reliable. Having said that, if you have a bit more time, or are fussy about your pho there are much better choices.

“Very good value and quick service”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

The restaurant is actually located on Spadina Ave, south of College. When we went it was packed with people from all walks of life. The service is prompt and no-nonesense. We were seated immediately, given a teapot with two cups and two menus and an order sheet to write down our own orders. We both had the beef rice noodle (rare and well-done) pho and a side order of spring rolls. The food arrived about 5 minutes after we order. The portions were huge and the pho was good, but unremarkable. The spring rolls were very tasty. Even though the food here is unspectacular, the portion sizes and good prices make it a popular place for students or people on a budget looking for a quick filling meal.

“Really good Pho.”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We like the one on Spadina Ave. Crowded with kids from the University of Toronto, because the bowls of soup are huge, and really tasty, and unbelievably inexpensive. A bit noisy, but service is prompt and you can't beat the prices. Perfect on a cold winter night when roaming around Chinatown and Kensington Market.

“Bloor St location is closed”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

There is now just a hole in the ground where this popular restaurant used to be located on Bloor St, across from the Royal Ontario Museum. Another condo is going to be built on the site. There is another Pho Hung on Spadina with the same good cheap food.
