I love looking for cuisine I can't readily get at home, and if you love pho, this is your place! We only had a few bowls, but they were both good, so good in fact my son hogged one of them and he's normally not a pho kinda kid.

This restaurant is owned by a Vietnam family. Pho was really good and it has very big potion. Atmosphere was very good, too. One disappoint was that they only accepted cash.

This place was always heaving with people queuing to get in so must be a good sign. Had a couple of lunches here and wasn't disappointed from simple sandwiches to full Pho bowls of deliciousness.

The food that you order at the counter and they bring to your table was inexpensive, freshly made, big portions, and very tasty. Everyone in our group enjoyed their dishes, and I would come again when I am in the area. The shrimp noodles was $11. They had some dumplings that looked really good too. They have pitchers of ice...

This Pho place was different, you have to order before you sit down. Nothing wrong with that, just different. Food was good, my partner was over the moon with the Pho soup (and we eat a lot of Pho). Pho Tai runs you about $10 for a medium bowl. A little expensive compared to where we normally eat Pho but... More

I try, when I travel, to review places constantly, to share my experiences with the trip advisor community that I rely on so much. And I often forget to write reviews of my daily experiences in my home city. The other night I was having dinner at Pho 69 and I was struck by what good food they serve at... More

Everyone was enjoying the soup bowls but is was hot so we had the chicken salad, just OK. We also had the shrimp salad, skip this but the lettuce wrap was great though may be too spicy for some. The soup bowls and rice plates were huge. Great value for the price. There is outside sitting. It is packed at... More

The food is not great, but not bad either. Portions are big. The service is good, but not memorable. The main issue I have with this place is the poor ventilation system. When you come in, all of the kitchen smoke is trapped inside the building, so when you leave, you'll smell like Asian food for the rest of the... More
