Don't judge a book by its cover. This restaurant looks like a humble noodle place but the pho they sell is amazing. If only they had a few branches outside of HCM in HK or SG. You can choose 2 to 3 types of meat to go along with your pho. The broth is heavenly and the restaurant gives you a tray of veggies from mint leaves to cucumber and a bean sprouts and leafy greens that you can throw into the soup along with lime and whatever sauces you want to dip the meat into. SO unbelievably good with a coconut after!

This is the best Pho that i has tried in Ho Chi Minh City. Soup is very mellow and Noodle is not too soft. Five stars are not enough for Pho Le !!

A friend recommended this place. So we set off late morning, walking from our hotel in District 1. It was much, much farther than we thought. It took us three hours, with a couple of stops for rest and drinks, before we finally arrived at Pho Le.

Thankfully, the food was good. The soup was tasty and the pho was soft and smooth, We tried the beef pho and the beef ball pho. Both were good, though I prefer the beef ball pho. Nice!

My boyfriend and I walked about 30 mins in that crazy hot weather for this bowl of Pho and it was all worth it!!!!

Huge pile of vegetables on the table for you to add in (Vietnam culture), soup was simply amazing, it was sweet and it was flavorful.

*Don't bother asking the staff any questions though, they don't speak a single word of English, just gotta point at the menu and you will get the best Pho!*

Will go back again! Missing the soup already. Definitely recommend!

This is the first Pho I took at upon arrival. The staff cannot speak English so we just asked them to put everything into the Pho, with beef ball, fresh beef, and cooked beef brisket. The soup is clear and the taste is very good. I can see that they spend great effort (and time) in making the soup. The meat ball is excellent and bouncy, the fresh beef is ok, texture is not very tender, and the brisket can be more tender too. However, the Pho is glued all together in the bowl meaning that they didn't put in the soup before serving (which they should heat the Pho first). The texture of Pho is soft and tender... personally, I prefer the chewy Pho in Paris.
