A friend told me to try Pho ... pronounced Fuuhhh She said look for a "special" ... and no.46 was it. It came with noodles and various meats, a hot broth, and a bag of sprouts and basil. I put them all together and added a little hot seeds and yeah... it was VERY good! Not having anything to compare... More

This is about my third time here. I like it almost as well as Vietnamese restaurants in Dorchester. It's a small place with big flavor. Inexpensive but very good. Quality is excellent.

We (myself, wife, son, daughter, son-in-law) to Pho Hoa for lunch and had a very good meal. Our orders ranged from pho with beef to a couple of vermicelli dishes and one beef noodle dish All dishes were well prepared and the service was provided by a highly competent, friendly staff. I would certainly recommend this restaurant for lunch if... More

This is one of my favorite pho restaurants in the area. I love the broth in the soups and the service is always friendly. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere unlike some of the other pho restaurants. The appetizers are delicious. Wish they had dessert here.

my favorite pho in Malden. Menu is pretty standard but well executed. Staff is very friendly, good kid friendly place. Decor is a little kooky with a lot of plastic flowers etc but it's cohesive.

One of my favorite Vietnamese restaurants is in Richmond, Va but we are a few hundred miles away. Hence, the hunt for a local, as in on the North Shore, Vietnamese restaurant where we can get fresh spring rolls, pho and anything else we have a craving for. We tried it last May for the first time and have frequented... More

Good pho noodles. I like the broth here compared to the other pho places in Malden. The restaurant has nice decor which is rare for Vietnamese restaurants. The portions are nice. They haven't screwed up my order once here which is refreshing compared to Saigon which does it almost everytime I go there. The prices are good for what you... More

There are at least three Vietnamese restaurants from which to choose in the immediate area. Go for Pho Hoa. It beats the others in terms of atmosphere and service, hands down. The food is consistent, fresh, and quite good. Their Bun (vermicelli) dishes are wonderful.

I go to Pho Hoa at least once a month. It is a stylish restaurant and is a welcome addition to Malden Center. I always have the chicken pho. It is a large portion of chicken and noodles and it never fails to satisfy. In fact I always request a to go container and take a good portion of the... More
