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.
I'm a sucker for great pho. Seafood, vegetarian, anything if it's got that great broth it's amazing. You can always tell when a place is not doing well with their food and this definitely is not the situation. I love their salt-and-pepper tofu it is absolutely to die for and so are their fishcakes. The seafood pho is my favorite thing order, along with some house hot tea :) though the service is extremely slow and seems pretty lost in their own world so I wouldn't recommend coming for a quick lunch. Otherwise no complaints at all
