“Best Pho in the Valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

The best Pho in the Valley & at the best price. Pho 999 is a small restaurant with tight parking but its worth it. The service is quick and with in minutes depending on the crowd you are enjoying a warm bowl of amazing Pho. I go with the rare steak Pho, it usually cooks it self in the broth. Tender & delicious beef. The spring rolls are a tasty appetizer. Enjoy!

“Solid, Tasty and Simple Vietnamese!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

Simple inexpensive good Vietnamese food!
Fast, simple and unpretentious...I had the beef rice noodle combo and flavors were vibrant! Service is efficient but a bit difficult to communicate if you are not a native.

“Good Pho, but quite loud"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2010

Ate lunch here this week. Good pho, but the noise level is really high. Hard to have a conversation without shouting. Need more vegetarian entrees. Busy place, but decent lunch stop. Sure beats burger or chicken joints.

This is the best pho around!

7 Courses of beef has some mediocre and some really tasty dishes and can feed 3-4 people easy. I normally stick with the pho though.

I eat here at least once a month and have been coming for 3 years. It's starting to catch on with the non Vietnamese folks. Just don't expect fine dining. The service is super fast and you will have your steaming bowl in minutes after ordering. I absolutely love this place.

“So Pho-King good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2009

The food is cionsistently great here. The Pho, beef and chicken are consistently excellent. I am especially fond of the Bun--sort of a Vietnamese pasta salad. The menu is insanely large, and going at least once a week, I have cut a big swath through it. I am VERY fond fo the pork stew, but it stinks. . .it is just terrifically tasty despite the smell.

Oh yeah, don't miss the fresh spring rolls.

The service is really spotty, you stand a good chance of getting a waiter who speaks no English, but you can always point to the menu.

When you are through, you go to the front counter and tell them your table number--no one gives you a check
