“Good Vietnamese food, service often a bit shaky”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Their food is the best vietnamese in the area, with excellent Pho (we used to drive to Fowler to get similar, but not since they opened) but often takes a long time to get your food, and more often than not in the times we have been there, the service has been hit or miss. Still, the people are very nice and the food is very good - but not for a quick in and out.

“Hidden gem”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

I was suprised to see a pho restaurant had opened in Riverview in the same plaza as a Japanese hibachi, mcdonnalds, pizza hut etc. Overall this is a nice and inviting clean reataurant with simplistic decor. The menu offers several types of pho which are very large servings from 8-12 $. I have always wanted to try Bun Bo Hue so I did. It was tastey, but just OK. The menu is very detailed about what's in it and I thought it would have a really robust flavour. It would have been better with fresh noodles made at the restaurant. The noodles were pretty flimsy and they appeared to be instant noodles. The pho was not too spicy and was served with a plate of sprouts, jalepeno, and other garnishes. So, the only other thing that kind of grated on my nerves was the restaurant appears to have only one restroom which is right in the dining area. Ppl were frequently going in and out and you could smell the toilette. Also, it wld be nice if their staff/cooks had another bathroom that was not in the dining area bc I really don't want to see the person cooking my food coming from the restroom to the kitchen. Ijs. With that being said this restaurant cld be a neighborhood gem with a little tweaking. Not sure if I will be back though bc the bathroom thing grossed me out.
