Haven't been here for 10+ years because I heard rumors saying original owners sold the business to someone else and the soup and noodles were no longer as good as before, meaning going downhills, so not interested to go anymore. Besides, good Vietnamese noodles in general can be found in either Forest Lawn or somewhere in NE (quiet east). Sounds... More

I've been to Pho Hoai a few times. Pho is good so I'll go again for sure. Pictured is plain Pho no beef. Coffee is like $6 though so keep that in mind when ordering!

Great pho, you can choose your size of bowl, extra chilli provided and beautiful chicken in pho - breast meat. Simple service and furnishings, but worth it for the food!

This is the place to come if you want really good Pho! Service is always bad, but food is good. Highly recommend the Sate Beef Pho.

Never knew this place existed until recently; tucked away in a tiny strip mall in Chinatown. Sate is excellent, also enjoy the pho. This place is worth a try!

went here for lunch - was quite busy but the staff is super efficient. The pho came quick and was nice and hot. The broth was flavourful and there was a good mix of meat to noodle.

I usually go to Pho Hoai about once a week. The sate is simply to die for. Perfect amount of nuttiness and spice. Their regular pho is also good, but I think the sate is their selling point. Multiple size options are also a nice addition. Definitely come here if you are looking for some spicy soup!

Did not know what to expect when I entered this place with just one other customer! Ordered the original beef pho Extra-Large to share with my bf. We considered just getting 2 small but I convinced him to get the extra large and I was not disappointed! Great portion size for 2 people and a good deal! Pho was tasty,... More

Ordered one rice and one vermicelli dish for take out. Lots of food and friendly service. Beef in both dishes were dry and really no flavour. Given the positive reviews we will stop in again and try the soup. Strike One!

Some of the best pho we've had in the city (and comparable to that found Vietnam!). Service is very quick and friendly. A really good choice!
