The food tasted simply disgusting, I have had one or two past visits here before after going to the Vietnamese Doctor across the street.
When I was still a kid, I thought the Pho was ok, but as I got to taste other restaurants' Pho, this one is the worst restaurant I've ever been to.
Food: Ordered a Pho w/ Beef tendons/briskets/meatballs. Meatballs was extremely small, while it's small, it's even cut in half so it's smaller than the size of a Malteser. Beef was barely cooked, soup was too cold to possibly cook the beef. Noodles was ok, but the soup and other ingredients is another thing. The soup has an awkward flavor in it, it's probably the extra ingredient I wouldn't find in other Pho places, a freakin' huge carrot/onion that made the soup taste awkward and irregular, not a positive one either.
Service: Had to flag down a server just to order, had to go TO the counter to ask for a glass of water w/ ice, barely noticed me and was chatting or doing something irrelevant at the time. Server had no manners. Tipped them a dollar to pity their horrible restaurant.
Value: 2 Bowls of Pho, one for my brother, one for me. Added up to a total of $15?! It was unbelievable, horrible pho for such a high price?
Ambiance: Dirty, tables were barely wiped/cleaned, color was dark and depressing, T.V. was too loud, horribly mopped floors. Unorganized chairs.
I would never go to Pho Van again due to my horrible 3 experiences there. I'd rather drive all the way to Kingsway to Pho Hoa, even Pho Hoa is better than Pho Van, by a LOT.
