Probably one of the best pho places in Orlando, at least that I have encountered. They have a very large multi page list of different types of pho including beef, chicken and tofu (with different toppings). They also have a small variety of other Asian foods like springs rolls, pad thai, and Vietnamese sandwiches. It's not uberly fancy, but fairly nice for a casual restaurant.
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.
This was the first time I had pho and it turns out I'm not the biggest fan. Everything was really fresh but I couldn't help but feel like I wanted more, and different, vegetables in the broth. The broth was super flavorful but also a bit more oily than I like. I ordered the vegetarian option and maybe that was the problem because it seems like meat is the staple of this dish. Per the suggestion of my friend I tried the iced coffee, that I cannot remember the name of, and that was delicious. The staff was also very friendly and accommodating.
Everytime we come of FL, we visit this place. Definitely got great pho here. The amount of ingredients, great flavor and the broth is hot. Noodle quality is good too, not too soft, not too hard. Plenty of stuffs inside your bowl of pho. We ordered pork chop over rice, spring roll, summer roll, lime with soda, iced coffee. They... More
