So the food here is good, and cheap. However, the service is not good. The service is slow and not very friendly. If you are looking for proper Vietnamese food, go here, but prepare for service that isn’t interested in customers. At that, the place...More

I order delivery from this place often. My boss goes in to eat. Food is consistently good. Service is fast. If it's much cheaper than this place, stay away.

Bottom Line: Nearly empty during lunch time should say enough. I'd look for something else in the area. Details: We stopped in around 1pm to a mostly empty restaurant. That should have been a sign to leave but we were hot and starving and this...More

I ordered a Rare Beef with Tendon Pho. Arrived quickly piping hot. Pho was nice. The broth could be a bit more flavorful. Staff were courteous. There's a clean bathroom. Cash only.

Nothing spectacular about Pho Cali, but definitely worth a visit. Seems like a family owned and run kind of place, offers tasty food, and at good prices.

This is a casual family restaurant. Our dinner was ok. I would have expected the summer rolls to have mint, as previously tasted in other similar places. Overall it was an ok experience. The place was full on Saturday evening, which is always a good...More
