It isn't my favourite Viet place but it's my mom's so we can't complain. Pho always tastes delicious because of their stock.
Lemon grass chicken with rice is also good
If you're looking for a place to spend $6-8 per person on a solid viet meal, look no further
Food is always good - better than most Vietnamese restaurants.
Service is OK.
Parking - We have always been able to find a spot at the restaurant.
Ambiance - Kind of grungy old Italian restaurant look.
Cleanliness - OK.
I eat here atleast once a week, this restaurant always seems packed. Great fast eats! The soup and springs rolls are great here. Also everything is so so cheap, my meals are always under ten dollars and im stuffed.
Pho Hong was used to be my favorite Vietnamese restaurant. But not anymore.
I have gone back a few times recently and the quality has been down the tube. A few years ago you would expect very generous portion of pho with a lot of meat, and very tasty broth for the pho.
Now this no longer holds. Portion is mediocre as best. Quality of broth is no longer to be found.
Even Vietnamese chain like Gold Train Express and Pho 99 serve way better pho than here. So sad.
Went in last week, found it busy as usual. Wife had the typical combo special - spring roll was good, but the noodle soup was luke warm. IMO soup should be hot to release its flavor; warm soup just feels unfresh. I had the rice dish, what a mistake. There was NO presentation what's so ever. A big'o plate of white rice and a bowl of overly watery sauce with overly cooked chewy pork. It looks like leftovers I eat at home. My appitite went downhill right there.
As soon as we rest the utensils, the waitress came to deliver the bill. Our dinner lasted about 25 minutes.
Judging by the turn over rate and the low cost to make its dishes in this restaurant, it really should return some of its profit back to its customers in the forms of better quality food, frinedlier service, and much much needed tables/chairs/decors.
I will not go back unless I really have to...
The place was packed around 1 pm. There were still many seats available. We were sat right away. The table cleaned right away. Waving down the waitress to get our orders taken required a bit of effort. The food came pretty fast and we got our beverages came before the food came. When the food arrived, the waitress placed the dish incorrectly. The rice for my lemon grill chicken were mushy and the chopped lettuce were not fresh. The lemon chicken was the only part that went right as the dipping sauce tasted bland.
My impression of the service has gone down. The waitresses were not very friendly. The waitress lack to care about customer service. When my friend asked for the bill, the waitress took the receipt and appear not happy that we requested for the bill. Anyways, I will be hesitant to come back to this place.
I love Vietnamese food and this restaurant is my favorite! Their menu is great! Food is always fresh and hot! Service is fast!
Everything is great if only the servers could be more friendly and smile... I've been to other Vietnamese restaurants and had the same issue with the servers. They're like robots - no warmth at all.
But the Pho is definitely HOT! Love it!
