“Wow, I Loved It”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

I have heard about this place for a while by several people. I can see why everyone raves about the food, it was excellent, fresh and abundant. The waitstaff were attentive, helpful and friendly! Go, go, go!

“Always consistent good food”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I have the soup here at least three times a month. It is always consistently excellent. Bill the owner, is a wonderful person and one of the first in the area to offer this excellent Vietnamese cuisine. His chicken noodle soup is to die for and the best in the city bar none. I have tried them all

“The best Vietnamese restaurant around.”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

I have been here several times. The food is always top notch, the service is always very attentive, the place is very clean, the atmosphere is calm and raxed yet family friendly, and the icing on the cake is that the decor is simple, elegant, consistent with the theme of the restaurant, yet not overly done. I leave happy every time.

Reviewed July 6, 2013

This restaurant i do not recommend to anyone come to eat here because if you look up , restaurant looks so nice but look down you will see carpet look so dirty that seem like carpet have never be cleaned since restaurant opened that why it is looking nasty.I don't know why all these people in here gave this restaurant so much credit on their food.Food so salty and an ice tea taste like water with no tea and charges customer 1.50 per class.How the heck this restaurant runs business when nobody care customer or their food.Shame on u 88 restaurant.

“Hands down best food in Lowell!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

The Pho is a nice warm-up in the Winter and the spring rolls are nice for a Summer meal. I recommend all of my hotel guests to go to Pho 88 if they enjoy/ are willing to try Vietnamese food. If you have never been to Pho 88 I would say this place is a must visit. There are many options for vegetarians and gluten-free eaters.
