“bad service”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Went in for a couple of sandwiches and waited for over twenty minutes. Finally could not wait for any longer and had to leave.no one came around to inform us whether or not our sandwiches were done or not.and they didn't know that we left. It was a weird experience.

“Great Vietnamese food!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

DesMoines is fortunate to have some of the best Vietnamese food in the US. You must try the Pho at Pho 888. I like the rare and well done beef. It is made in the traditional way and is excellent. I had the same Pho in Vietnam and the Pho 888 version is identical. Lots of other good stuff. Try the Grilled Pork sandwich, excellent. Enjoy!!!

Very authentic Vietnamese items. Nothing fancy in decor but clean and great food. Would definitely go back!

“The Pho is about as good as it gets anywhere”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

Sometimes is very busy and there's not enough staff. However, even under the worst situation, the wait (after ordering) is not more than 20 minutes, and the quality of the Pho makes the wait worthwhile. However, don't be fooled into thinking that you can lose weight eating this healthy food. The servings are so generous & the stock so rich that you need to stop eating at the first signs of feeling full.
