“Good food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

At last! A pho restaurant that serves more than beef.... you can have chicken or seafood here. At around $6.50 for a big bowl (includes the raw veggies on the side), it's great value. Houstonians have voted this small chain of 9 restaurants as having the best pho in town. Probably so....

“The best!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Having spent over 3 months traveling through Vietnam and then tasted good Vietnamese food around the world and across the USA I can honestly say the dishes we had tonight at Pho Saigon were some of the best ever! Prices are exceptionally reasonable yet the food exceeds the value expected at the prices charged. Little things like the hint of fresh mint in the Goi Cuon [fresh spring rolls], the meaty flavorsome Egg Rolls, the nicely smokey & tender char-grilled pork on the Bun Thit Nuong, and the hearty beef stew pho all made for a great meal. The Cafe Sua Da was also the real deal made and served as it is in Vietnam and the coffee used I'm sure was from Vietnam as it has a distinctive flavor. We will be back and will be looking for their other locations. $21- for a meal for 2 in midtown Houston is a darn good deal!

“Great reliable restaurant!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

I eat at Pho Saigon any time I am in the midtown area.

It is a reliable restaurant where the food quality does not vary.

My favorite is the beef stew. It us a rich brougth loaded with large chunks of beef, carrots and onions.


I is served with a fresh baugette.


I highly recommend this restaurant!

“Full of Flavor”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

This is one of those Hole in the wall restaurants that you find once in a blue moon that are fantastic. The Pho tastes great here, you see the different ingredients. You taste them. There is not a bland taste of everything taste like everything. The flank and the tripe are the two things that standed out most to me. the tripe was spider-ed out, nice n' chewie. Love this place.

“The best Vietnamese food in Houston!”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

This is the best Vietnamese food in Houston. It is the original location of the chains and it is the best. Their spring rolls are tightly wrapped, the vegetables are fresh, and the food is out within 10 minutes after you order. If your looking for a casual location, fast service, and inexpensive healthy meal, this is the place to go!!!
