    This is the one I go to when I want Vietnamese food. The owner is very nice and friendly. She has been working there for many years and cook great food and reasonable price.  My favorite dishes are broken rice with barbecue pork and vermicelli with barbecue pork and  VN Eggrolls.
    There are other good flavors you can choose from. If you want some good VN food this is the place .

    Found hair(s) in the vermicelli, not one...
    Three hair mixed with the noodles!
    Shouldn't the cook be wearing the chef's hat???
    Sorry, I find this place unsanitary : (

    I wouldn't come back even it I was starving.  The amount of MSG and sodium they use will make you sick, in my case very sick.

    If you're not sensitive to MSG, then this place is your slightly average pho place.  Nothing special except they're open on a Monday night ...

    I came here yesterday on a Saturday afternoon as I was craving some Vietnamese food close by. Pho Vung Tau was a place I've been going to as a kid so I wanted to give this place my own review. The restaurant in my opinion is pretty decent. I ended up getting the seafood pho and the soup base for me at least didn't really stand out/or have enough flavor to it. There were a few slices of squid, shrimp, fishballs, and some imitation crab, but it was just alright. It's definitely not bad, and they do give a generous amount of noodles which was good.

    Their spring rolls were definitely satisfying for me. The ingredients that they used felt really fresh. Overall, they're just normal spring rolls though; nothing special or anything, but they were definitely pretty good.

    And lastly, their Bun Bo Hue was alright as well. A lot of places that do Bun Bo Hue turn out to be kinda oily for me, but this one was pretty adequate and it didn't feel overwhelming at all. It's basically like the toned-down version of how it's usually made.

    All in all, their food was okay in general. What I do recommend are their vermicelli/rice plates. I do think their lemongrass chicken, five-spice chicken rice rice/vermicelli dishes are pretty good from my standards. But their noodle soups are just alright. I would definitely still come here though! It doesn't really stand out compared to other Vietnamese places, but it's still a hidden gem to look out for especially if you live in Chinatown.

    This place is really just disappointing. We were seated right away after having come here following the disappointment of seeing Pho Delicious closed. I ordered my basic: pho tai and when I ordered in my awful Vietnamese, they asked me questions in Cantonese. I mean, luckily I speak Cantonese but damn. Strike. The food came out at different times and really, it was really bland for pho. My boyfriend ordered chicken pho and didn't even come close to finishing it. His father ordered one of the rice dishes and thought it was too salty.
    In the end, not one of us really enjoyed the food and it's not really worth coming here to dine. Skip!
