I've had lunch here 4-5 times the last month or so and their pho is one of my favorites here in town (i also really liked their rice noodle bowls). Located in a smaller strip mall location so it's pretty casual but good value. Love the Boba drinks too!

The list of Vietnamese restaurants and Pho houses in Denver is concentrated along Federal Boulevard, other north Denver locations and in Aurora. For the most part the restaurants along Federal are some of the best and our friends and we have enjoyed several in southeast Denver and Aurora as well. We have visited and revisited at least 25-30 different Vietnamese restaurants in Denver over the last 28 years (starting with the original T-WA and the like and working our way around the city). We have never really had great Vietnamese food in the more sterilized environment of the "burbs"...UNTIL NOW.

My daughter and I first visited 123 Pho on a Friday night as we were feeling adventurous, not because of the genre, but by trying a Vietnamese restaurant in the middle of Highlands Ranch!

It was a great call.

We agreed that this was the most flavorful Pho in Denver, perfectly seasoned, complex and obviously homemade - rich and deep yet light and clear. Accompanied by the usual but very fresh vegetables, it was absolutely delightful. The Pho Tai sliced steak was tender and perfectly "laid up short" of medium and the noodles were perfectly done as well. Someone is really paying attention to this wonderful dish.

My wife joined us on a more recent trip and we decided to try items from their bun, rice dishes and appetizer sections this time, just to see if the quality was as good as the Pho. We were very impressed: the spring rolls were delicate with perfectly stretched (and thin) rice paper, the combination bun was topped with delicious grilled shrimp, beef and pork, and the thin marinated pork chops with rice were phenomenal.

Service? These ladies are friendly, warm and very attentive - they simply want you to enjoy the product of their hard work. You immediately feel like a house guest with their genuine smiles.

Atmosphere? Simple but tasteful and spotless.

Location? You have to look for it as it is at the extreme southwest corner of the King Soopers center at University and Highlands Ranch Parkway, close to Valor High School.

At least four Vietnamese bowl restaurants have opened near us in the past six months. With all of the vegetable accompaniments and large portions, the soup and rice bowls are a good way to feed a growing family with something new and interesting. This place is the best value of the places we've been. The prices are a reasonable and ther food as tasty as any other.
