The food is great in flavor. Very fresh and different. Would surely come back just think it is a little expensive.

You simply cannot beat the freshness of the food in this place. So far i have tried the soup (pho), mango salad, cold noodles with shrimp (bun), springrolls and curry. Everything is delicious! The service is nice and attentive. The place is pretty small and usually get full so i would recommend to reserve a table. My favourite spot for... More

I have been in Costa Rica for the last 4 days and was craving some Vietnamese food. I have been eating the typical Costa Rican dishes and needed a change. I was hesitant at first because I am part Vietnamese and grew up eating Pho my whole life. I read some of the reviews and decided to venture out. My... More

especially when you order a sugarless carrot apple ginger fresh natural juice and get orange water with pile of sugar, send it back and get the same orange water , just without the sugar, which even the waiter admitted has little carrot and then water. and then get charged for it,even though you said it is not what you expected....

I believe this is a good restaurant, slightly over the average. Nothing fancy, nothing complicated. Even though I had higher expectations, my meal was good. The spring rolls were really good, I ordered the regular vegetarian ones. The peanut sauce was good. There are other options around, but this is a good one. I had a Pho plate as main... More

This is NOT authentic Pho. The noodles were not pho noodles it was vermicellin noodles. The broth and beef were ok. More like Costa Rican inspired Pho. It was too expensive for what we got. But at least they gave us a discount 😏💸. Still not worth the price $. -A Very Disappointed Vietnamese

We dined at Pho last night, after a long and hectic day of driving. Our waiter, Carlos, was just what we needed..Great sense of humor, good recommendations, and willing to use his excellent English so we wouldn't have to struggle with our limited Spanish. The Vietnamese food was excellent and very fresh. I highly recommend the shrimp bun on rice... More

The restaurant significantly improved since my last visit years ago. The personal is very nice, actually the waiter move one table to inside due to the windy condition outside. He was very courteous and offered an explanation of the main dishes. The ginger lemonade was pretty good and I tried the apple - pineapple - mint, very refreshing. the food... More
