That delicious Vietnamese noodle soup called Pho is a dish that many relish. There are at least three establishments in the Golden Isles area the specialize in this dish. The Pho served at Pho # 1 is definitely good, but it is not the best. There is a depth of flavor in the broth that is missing. But if you... More

I go to Pho #1 twice a month or whenever I crave Pho with rare steak! There is nothing fancy about this place, but the food is outstanding, the service is great and the owners are very friendly and customer oriented. Give Pho#1 a try....you'll love it!

Went here to get some phō for the chilly weather in Brunswick. I know my phō when I see one. I could definitely say that the food here is authentic. (I'm South East Asian) I ordered beef phō. The heart of the phō is the broth. The broth is kind of lacklustre since there isn't enough complexity and depth that... More

I want to make some Asian food for my special guest. I went there and hope to get some Chinese vegetable. They don't have any fresh product.

Walked in for lunch at about 11:30 on a weekday. So far, I'm the only one. I seated myself and soon a gentleman came out and brought a menu. Fare looked to be limited, but most of what you'd expect at any small Vietnamese restaurant. I ordered a Coke and he went over to a cooler and brought back a... More

Well went back to this place Pho #1 in Brunswick, GA to see if it had improved and it has not. This place is small and lacks the appealing decor & charm of most Pho places like I've seen in Atlanta,GA Bufford Highway. There are several restaurants that stand out = 5***** and put this place to shame. After visiting... More

Actually very good food, not normally what most people would try. The service is very charming and inviting. Try the bun (noodles) with the combo of pork and shrimp. Very good in house sauces as well. The market next door has alot of hard to find Asian ingredients. Very good!

I visited with my family and introduced them to phoa. The menu is a little Vietnamese, a little Chinese, and a little Korean. Dishes were delivered one at a time as they were prepared.
