“Fast, fresh food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

Don't be put off by the run-down strip mall appearance. The restaurant is clean and the food is fresh and prepared quickly. We had egg rolls, pho and a vermicelli/chicken/egg roll dish. Pho is hot broth with a variety of things in it, like chicken and vegetables or beef, and noodles. Once you order, the bowl of broth is filled with vermicelli noodles and your choice of other things. The vegetables will be slightly al dente, and the meats are thinly sliced and tender. Add hot sauce, basil leaves, a squeeze of lime, and other condiments right at the table. The egg rolls were crispy and hot, and the vermicelli dishes are all excellent. Portions are large and the prices are very reasonable.

“Always fresh and delish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2011

Pho T Cali is one of our "go to" places when we need a quick, satisfying and tasty meal. Their salad rolls and egg rolls wi lettuce wraps and dipping sauces are a great way to start a meal. Their Pho (lots of choices) is always great especially in the winter. During the warmer months we prefer cold noodles wi a wide choice of toppings-- a favorite is the BBQ shrimp and steak combo. A wide selection of beverages including beers, teas and soft drinks are available. The staff are all very sweet and accommodating and the price is right!
