This is an unassuming, small store front Vietnamese restaurant, also serving Thai & Chinese food. It was very clean, service was quick, but it was a little difficult to communicate w/the pleasant waitress.

Beef Pho was delicious w/rare slices of tender steak sitting atop the pho all nestled in that flavorful, savory broth. A medium is enough to share depending, or is a generous meal in & of itself. (sizes also come in Large & X-large) --Loved how we could control whether or not to eat the steak rare or swirl it in that delicious broth for further cooking. Comes w/a side of bean sprouts that were fresh & crunchy.

Next, we had a delicious Pad Sey U: extra wide noodles stir fried w/beef (or choice of protein), silky eggs, broccoli, asparagus, & Thai Basil. Comfort Food!! We loved it.

The Pad Sey U was spicy, so we ordered Crab Ragoon hoping the casein in the cream cheese would ease the burning of the former dish. Within a couple minutes, they too were served right away. They were light & crispy, filled w/that delicately seasoned creamy cheese & crabmeat filling.

The place was clean, service was quick & pleasant, food was good & an Excellent Value! The bathrooms were clean, but could use a lot of updating....

We are looking forward to trying many of Pho Triple 888's dishes & new combinations of those we've already had.

One of the best places in the north shore for great pho. A little family place that opened during th recession and survived with little advertising but strong word of mouth.

The food is freah and full of flavor while the friendly service by the owners is prompt and courteous. We are glad to add to their word of mouth well deserved reputation.
