“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

I really enjoy this family run restaurant. The servers always remember me and my order. I come frequently for lunch because its fast and economical. We frequently order to-go and bring dinner home. They package the pho really well on to-go items. The interior is aging and utilitarian but I find it a breath of fresh air. I doubt its updated since it was the Bamboo Inn, nevertheless, I love the diner feel. Its simple, charming and the food is great. I have enjoyed all of the pho options on their menu, the vermicelli bowls, and their spring rolls - though as one reviewer pointed out, the spring rolls do have a lot of rice noodles compared to other spring and salad rolls that I've had. The avocado smoothy is also very good. Overall, this place is a great value and a family favorite.

Exploring the area and just wanted some Vietnamese food near by and found this one. We enjoyed the food but the service was ok.

“YUM and CHEAP”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

The pho was great! So fresh and large portions. Don't order the large unless you want leftovers to take home, or you are sharing. The fresh lemonade is delicious. We stopped here on a Saturday night passing through town, and were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was, and how quick and friendly the staff served us. They were busy but not overly so. And how often do you have dinner for 2 for under $20??? Great value. Wish we had one of these around the corner!

“Our regular joint when staying in Bellingham”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Good food for cheap. Standard vietnamese fare but the homemade chilli paste is to die for. Atmosphere a bit dingy and waits are a bit long during lunch and dinner rushes but will recommend.

“Soul Satisfying and Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

I've found Pho 99 to have excellent "comfort food" and fast service. True, it does get crowded at peak times, but the clientele is far from just WWU students. In fact, the customers are an eclectic cross section of Bellingham. It's location, just seconds off of I-5 should make it a convenient stop for travelers in addition to locals.

The food is super fresh, and menu has all sorts of options. Even the "small" portions are good sized. Not much on ambiance, and it gets noisy when crowded. Come for the food! Prices are very reasonable!
