Best shrimp pad Thai I have ever experienced. Just the right spice & they can make it gluten free. Service is very good.

A nice surprise of a Vietnamese restaurant on Park Avenue in Worcester. You can sit down, or as well do take out. The meals are quickly prepared, and are very authentic. The freshness of the ingredients especially all the vegetables was very well appreciated. For starters we had the summer rolls of shredded pork and vegetables rolled in rice paper... More

I ate here with a small group of work colleagues mid-week. I ordered the teriyaki chicken with vermicelli noodles and veg. This was a delight. The dish was packed full of flavour and was a generous portion. The table service was prompt and friendly. I think we'll be back to che k this place out again before our training trip... More

However great the food is at Pho DaKao, and trust me, it is amongst the best in Worcester, it's definitely Vietnamese. Absolutely first rate.

This seems like a neighborhood Asian eatery with an extensive menu. The serving staff was not only helpful in describing the dishes, they even demonstrated the art of rolling large rice paper sheets around assorted vegetables and meat. They also helped us choose the appropriate condiments and dipping sauces. We enjoyed the food, the experience and learning a little about... More

Went here early on a Friday evening and I'm so happy we did! It was perfect. Our waitress was fabulous. The menu is large. Pho Dakao isn't just soup! It has many dishes such as pad tai and spring rolls. I suggest trying the fried spring rolls. They were the best I've ever had. Their drinks are delicious and cheap!... More

The food was very good. They have a small but good selection of Saki. We shared the spring rolls, Mongolian Beef and Chicken with Lemon grass. I would go back any time.
