“BEST VIETNAMESE FOOD IN THE CITY”
Review of Pho Mac

Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 March 2017

I've been coming to Pho Mac in Staten Island for many years now. It is by far the best and most authentic Vietnamese place for food in the 5 boroughs. The selections of appetizers is wide and delicious. the summer rolls with peanut sauce are to die for and the spring rolls take a close second. Wrapping them in lettuce and dipping them in the fish sauce is so tasty. So many variety of Pho you can take your pick through the very extensive menu and make your selections. So many other dishes to choose from. Beef Cubes over rice vermicelli is always a winner as is the grilled pork chop with rice. You can have the slow drip Vietnamese coffee after dinner or opt to have the delicious choices of bubble tea. Make Pho Mac a trip on your foodie list.

I haven't eaten at many Pho restaurants but, I must say this place is great! The food is tasty, great price and most importantly - Fresh! I love it. The staff are very friendly and the place is very casual and relaxed! I highly recommend this place.

Been here several time before and always left the place feeling that perhaps it was not the proper food that we ordered. After all, we came for the Vietnamese, but ordered something else. This time we went straight for the kill. Ordered same dishes as we order in the Vietnamese restaurants in Brooklyn. All dishes, somehow had a Chinese smell to them. You'd be laughing, but the Vietnamese dishes we eat have a distinct smell and taste. And these did not.
So, this third time we agreed not to return here again, for the place had failed to satisfy our Vietnamese taste buds. Definitely a decent Chinese place though.

Definitely one of my favorite restaurants on the island for sure! You can't beat the price/quality here, and if you're a fan of pho - this is your spot! My usual #15 Pho noodle bowl with pork chops is an unbelievable steal at under $8 for the amount of food you get. A huge bowl of pho with the savory pork chops with an awesome sweet glaze. Did I mention the Vietnamese spring rolls? Always fresh and hot out of the fryer, wrapped in lettuce leaves with fresh mint and cilantro dipped in the signature dipping sauce - it's amazing. If you're craving some noodles and spring rolls, stop in!

Very interesting and different little restaurant with two floors. If you like fancy design you are not gonna like here because here it's all about food. Very tasty soups and spicy dishes,noodles was good too. Service not so much but you know it's not that kind of place.They are very busy at weekends and evenings.
