Have I had better Pho, yes. But I’ve visited Vietnam so it’s hard to beat what I experienced there. Pho Bac is a good substitute. It’s your typical hole in the wall Pho shop, standard menu, with soups that are obviously cared for and a correct balance of broth to noodles and meats. If you have a Pho Jones, it will meet the need.

It was our first day in Montreal and we walked in Chinatown to get a late lunch. We saw a lot of people walking in here and we decided to join them. I got the soup and vermicelli combo and my husband got the beef pho. As soon as we sat down, a lady came with a pot of hot tea. It was free and it was a welcome relief since it was freezing outside. The food was very good.
The service was good and they give you enough tine to decide what you want to order.

For authentic Chinese food this restaurant can't be beat!! It is certainly a hidden gem!! This would probably be considered a 'hole in the wall' but don't be fooled! When all of the locals clamour to get in you know you have found the right place. Prices are more than reasonable. Service is fast and efficient and simply delicious. Drop in - you definitely won't be disappointed.

We’ve been to Montréal several times and always make it to Pho Bac. Family run business, fast service, amazing food. We were soaked with rain and the beautiful bowl of pho brought us back to life. Highly recommend, great area for food.

This place that feels like high school dining hall serves delicious phó for an excellent price.

Might be cold inside in winter.
