Tucked in a strip mall near the freeway, this Vietnamese Pho restaurant was very good. The pho was excellent, the service courteous and helpful, and the price was right. Try it.

We went to Pho Bo Vang for the first time the day after Christmas. The restaurant is very casual and spartan in decor. I think they were a bit short staffed, probably because of the holiday. I had #3, which was a rare sirloin well done brisket and flank Pho and it was very good. My husband had a Shrimp... More

My wife and I have been eating at the same local unnamed Vietnamese restaurant for 25 years and we wanted to try something different for the sake of change. We were not disappointed. We visited Pho Bo Vang on a Saturday night at 5:30 pm. The restaurant is located in a shopping center next to Boot Barn & Turner's Outdoorsman.... More

We just can't stay away from Pho Bo Vang. This is my favorite Pho in the south OC area. Family owned. Consistently good.

We stopped in for a quick lunch at Pho Bo Vang and really liked it. I had the Goi Cuon and the Pork Bon, both of which were very good.

Visited here in May and now have returned in June. From the appearance, you wouldn’t think it was that good but it is. The spring rolls were excellent and the Pho... Excellent!

Pho Bo Vang is consistently delicious. We routinely have lunch here. Reliably good in an unpretentious area.

We enjoy good pho. Came down from Monterey and happened to be staying in a hotel up the street. My husband enjoys beef pho with tendon and tripe. The soup tasted really good, the tendon is cut differently but still yummy. I had the soup with shrimp, crab, and BBQ pork-loved it. We also enjoyed the calamari appetizer that was... More
