We were at the strip for the day and decided to try this very unassuming little restaurant. We were greatly surprised by the superior food and service we received. The soup was delicious and appetizers were tasty. We made a special trip two weeks later just to eat there.

Was in the Strip District to meetup some friends, but once there, my friends messaged me that they were late, so had to duck into an eatery to get some food and shelter from the wintery elements. Always wanted to try the Pho vietnamese soup in this place, which seemed always crowded (good sign), and so went it. Ordered a... More

Delicious and savory Pho. I just spent a month in Vietnam and was missing Pho. Pho Van hit the spot! I will definitely be back!

If you have a taste for Vietnamese food, this place will satisfy you. Good pho in a simple atmosphere where it seems a number of local people eat. Not expensive, but I don't think you can get a beer to go with your dinner.

One of the worst dining experiences I've had in Pittsburgh. The food itself isn't bad, but the service is terrible. I went with my parents on a Tuesday for lunch and waited at the door for 10 minutes for the host to speak to us even though there were several empty tables. We waited a long time for food and...

Excellent. Although not an expert on Pho, i thought this compared well to what I've eaten in Baltimore. Also liked the vinegar onions.

The environment inside is surprisingly pleasant in comparison to the general feel of the neighborhood. Loved the oil paintings. The food was also satisfying, and I really enjoyed the broth of the pho. Will definitely return if I ever stop by the neighborhood, although that's very unlikely because I was disappointed by the orderliness of the district.

I had heard about pho and was interested. The chicken salad was excellent, but pho, while good was rather bland. Enjoyed the limeade and the shrimp roll. The establishment was quite busy with several regulars from what I could tell. So, this reviewer may not have the full story on Vietnamese food.

Had egg wanton soup but the wanton is a little tough though. Coffee was excellent but a tad sweet. Service was excellent :) Thumbs up.
