I have tried many Pho places in the MD/DC area and this is the place to go for Pho. The soup is just perfect! And you always get it with a smile. The people here are so nice.

Summer rolls were very small and did not look fresh, we also asked for one dipping sauce with no fresh peanuts and one with and only got one. Soup seemed salty and had less ingredients than last month and the prices have slowly creeped up these last couple of years. Service was slow and the restaurant was not filled, right... More

Just flew in from TX and my wife wanted some hot pho to warm her up on a cold night. Google'd Pho and found Pho Real. Was I lucky. We have a two great Pho restaurants near our home, and Pho Real may have just knocked them out of the top slot. The broth is filled with flavor. It is... More

We were visiting from the Seattle area and wanting some delicious and inexpensive pho and Pho Real hit the mark. Rich, flavorful broth, hearty portions, fresh ingredients and quick service. You really can't ask for more!

When I went here, I hoped for the best and prepared for the worst. This was my first pho experience so I was quite sure I wouldn't like it just based on the type of food that it was. However, because it came highly recommended and because everyone else was so interested in it, I decided to go along. For... More

After reading the great reviews, I decided to drive from Columbia to Silver Spring. The 15 min trip was well worth it! I ordered a large bowl of well-done beef and brisket Pho for $8.99 and an Avocado smoothie for $4.49. The broth was delicious and the meat was tasty! The service was great too!! I will be back with... More

This was by far one of the best Pho (pronounced fuh) meals my dining partner and I have ever eaten. The noodles were delicious, the meat was tender, Thai ice tea was refreshing, and the service was great.

This family owned Vietnamese Pho restaurant is really good. The soup broth is rich and tasty, the service is courteous and prompt. I always order #15, with raw meat, that gently cooks in the hot broth, making it even richer.
