I used to be a fast food junkie until my body was telling me it needed to stop. I don't like cooking so I needed to find a fast food alternative and that became Pho Vu. They have many different meals that are refreshing and leave you full but feeling light. I have to say you must be willing to... More

Vietnamese food is truly loved by all. You will see that whenever you visit Pho Vu. And everyone loves THIS restaurant. Why? Simple. Great food! Great prices! Great portions! Healthy eating! Clean place! Pho Vu is 5 minutes from our home so we go there once a week.

Clean and well designed dining room. Flavor is consistently good after visiting three days in a row. Service is a professional but not superb.

If you are anywhere near La Quinta, this is the place for Pho. I love this place. This was our 3rd time here. I love the "pancake" for appetizer. The Shrimp Pho is delicious. We ordered extra vegetables --- large bowl -- you can share it. Everyone is so friendly. The place is spotless and the food is PHOfabulous!!!!!!!

I love this pho.... Try it - asap.... Despite it being a hot day, this soup hit the spot... The shop is clean and has lots of windows, so shades can be adjusted according to time of day... Fast, friendly service...

Pho Vu restaurant is located across from Costco in La Quinta, north of Hwy. 111 in the Home Depot Mall. We had dinner at Pho Vu for the first time this week. Service by a young lady server was very good & attentive.... she met us at the door, took us to our table and subsequently waited on us. For... More

I have to state that Vietnamese cuisine might be my favorite. We had fresh spring rolls, banh xeo (kind of a crispy egg pancake with sprouts), and a spicy chicken dish. Comes with a mound of beautiful fresh herbs and lettuce. Most of the folks seemed to be having the pho, for which they're renowned. I'll try it next time.... More

The best pho in the desert! I will admit I am not extremely familiar with Vietnamese food, I've only had it in NYC one other time (also good but kinda forgettable). The broth at Pho Vu is silky and delicious, and the "regular" bowl is a generous portion for this 5'6" female. I eat dinner here (just the pho with... More

I eat here about once a week I like it so much. It is excellent Pho and about 25 variations. There are other dishes with noodles that are mouth watering. I am just scratching the surface of the huge menu. They have bottled beer and wine. The small size bowl is still large for me and a dollar less. Lots... More

Pho Vu is another one of the many surprises that pop up in the desert communities like LaQuita. It's a really authentic Vietnamese restaurant serving great Pho Ba and Pho Ga, plus rice paper Spring Rolls. Mighty good & a pleasant dietary changes of cuisine. You'll enjoy! ...
