Food was excellent and service was friendly and top notch. !! Small and cozy restaurant, family oriented in the heart of ByWard Market, will definitely come again.

Small, no pretention but great place to know for a great meal. On a Monday night the place was almost full, only about 10-15 small table. A very good dinner! Fresh, tasty, not heavy. Fair price. The place is a bit "steamy" would be great if they could have a better ventilation system and to allow a bit more room... More

I had a really delicious vegetarian summer roll, followed by a delicious curried tofu dish. The menu for vegetarians is excellent, and in a separate section for easy perusing.

While I love Pho, since moving back to Ottawa from a place that didn't have Pho I have yet to re-develop enough of a taste to properly evaluate average pho from really good pho. As a result I had a hard time deciding on an overall rating for this place. That said I stopped in this place for lunch yesterday.... More

My family of 4 ate at Pho By Night. Portions were smaller than we are used to at other other Pho restaurants, and the prices were higher. The food was fine.

The pho here is just OK, but not a real PHO. However, it lacked the flavors that a typical well-made broth would have. The portion size was small compare to price they charged. The service was cheap.

I am a huge Pho fan and I must say I was disappointed. I am from Orleans and we have a handful of great Pho places (best one being Bien Pho). Pho by night was not terrible, but the vermicelli I got was dry, not much chicken, chicken was burnt.
