We offer a variety of drinks to quench your thirst from our most popular Vietnamese ice coffee with condensed milk to import beers and wine. Pho 88 is a great place to come in for lunch and/or dinner, and has a spacious dining area to host big events. We also offer catering services for special occasions.

Got the vegetarian stir fried tofu w/noodles and mixed veggies. The flavors are incredible, and the spicy sauce options range beyond the typical icky Sriracha you find in nearby eateries.Wife got the soup vegetarian w/mixed veggies. Broth was flavorful and not overly salty. Well, done crew!
I've been to Pho 88 a handful of times and am never hugely impressed, but not greatly disappointed either. The pho is definitely the best item to order on the menu. The broth is tasty and not too salty. Everyone has always seemed satisfied with their differing protein choices and selection of sprouts and vegetables. My friend did order pad thai one time and could barely eat it because it was so greasy. So, I say, stick to their specialty! I ordered a thai tea, a sweetened black tea made with condensed milk, and thought it was quite on point to other thai teas that I've had. Their service has never blown me away but they are pretty straight forward and prompt. The man was patient with our group as we questioned him about different phos on the extensive menu. It's no Seattle pho joint but it's definitely worth a visit.
Bun Rieu is probably one of my favorite Vietnamese dishes if I'm not in the mood for Pho. Sadly, not a lot of restaurants make it since it's such a special dish. I was glad to see it on the menu here so I had to order it! It was delicious and tasted just how a Bun Rieu should taste - plump vermicelli noodles with a nice hot crab and tomato broth with pieces of crab cake and fried tofu. I always add the basil and the jalapenos in too! So glad they had this on the menu! (I also recommend the bun bo hue if you like spicy noodles). I also ordered the summer rolls (the fresh spring rolls (Goi cuon) with shrimp) and it was really disappointing so I would skip out on that. My friends had the chicken pho and the bun bo hue and they loved their dishes. They also ordered a vietnamese coffee with the condensed milk and an iced tea and they both enjoyed that as well. Overall, the restaurant is fairly big, clean, and spacious and the service was good. Food was good and there is plenty of parking! Oh also, they accept Credit cards!
