I don't even know why I write a review since there are more than 400 already, which goes to show that the place is popular, successful, and deserves it. Why 4? Well, this is a Pho soup place, com'on! I can't put 5 stars, but I'd gladly put 4.5 if I could (When will yelp allow half stars? Life is subtle, it sometimes requires half measures!)Been many times, Pho Thai soup is great, I occasionally order spring rolls, which are great too, inexpensive and you walk out of there in good shape. One thing I noticed too is that the sprouts they hand you with the soup are actually very fresh, a rare sighting in Pho places. :)In a nutshell, this is a Pho place like many others in North America, but one that manages to be consistent in quality, a feature not so common to even other very good restaurants.
Very nice atmosphere. Clean. Was steadily busy throughout our dining visit. Service was constant, pleaseant, and very quick. Everyone spoke english. And the pho was fantastic. I was thoroughly pleased. Im only giving it a 4 star because i havent tried and other dishes yet. And the chopsticks were wooden disposable ones... convenient for clean up.. but takes away from dining experience.
I had a chance trying out this Vietnamese restaurant after visiting Universal. Although it was bit of drive from where we were the food definitely made the trip worthwhile. Upon arrival the parking lot was already pretty packed but luckily they have an additional lot connected in the back given the popularity of this place. Inside the restaurant is bigger than I expected easily can seat up 15-20 tables. The decorations and furnishings are quite minimal much like a typical Vietnamese restaurants I visited. As others have mentioned the prices are very attractive here and portion is pretty standard. I regretted not getting a pho with everything in it rather just had steaks. Pho is definitely pretty solid good amount of steaks and broth is not too salty or sweet. I also got to try a grilled pork rice plate. The pork portion could definitely be more but I liked the other assortments of eggs and veggies that comes with it. Although the pork skins were a bit bitter I thought. Summer rolls were pretty standard but the peanut sauce is certainly very well made. I remember the server came to check up on us multiple times to make sure we got everything we need so definitely weren't neglected. Overall I thought it was a solid 4 star experience just wished we had more time to visit again to try their other menu options. But if they were definitely up to par with the many awesome Vietnamese restaurants I've visited within US
Stopped by for a quick lunch after doing a search on Trip Advisor. Food was very good. A lot of locals in the restaurant. We ordered spring rolls, dumplings, pho and stir fry. Food came out in less than 15 minutes and was very fresh! Servings more than generous. 2 entrees can easily serve 4. Service was also great as... More
I don't normally like Vietnamese food but I loved Pho 88. I had the stir fried veggies with tofu over vermicilli rice noodles, which had a fabulous homemade soy sauce. Had the pad thai which really wasn't pad thai but tasted good. The pork chop was the only disappointment. But the stir fried pork was good, according to my family.... More
