It's nice to find a Vietnamese restaurant in Howell. We visit here often and have tried several dishes on the menu. I love their pho and vietnamese spring rolls. Would be better if they served a bigger portion. Everything I've tried so far tastes good. They serve bubble tea as well. which made us really happy because we used to... More

We stopped by here in order to try a different local Vietnamese restaurant. We were very disappointed. The Pho was bland and not nearly as full of noodle, veggies and meat as our go-to Vietnamese restaurant. We ordered a couple of other dishes and they were just as disappointingly bland. The worst was the price. After being disappointed in the... More

I've been there several times, the gorls that work there are knowledgeable regarding the menu and they are very polite. I go there for their pho, which is usually good. It's not warm and cozy, but the summer rolls are always delicious. B. E.

Very light and satisfying meals, fast, fresh, healthy and suitable for a gourmet or on a budget meal. A flavor is very different from Chinese, Japanese tai or korean cuisine. If you order a soup(Po) it will come in a huge bowl with rice noodles and you may have to share it or just take your time to finish it... More

Been coming here to Vietnam Bistro for years now and everytime I come in they have something new. Have tried their pho, vermicelli noodle bowls, pad thai (be careful very hot) and loved them all. Keep up the great job Phil!

We discovered this place by accident when friends of ours who own a Chinese restaurant elsewhere invited us out to dinner here. Food is outstanding and inexpensive. Mostly appetizer/finger foods and various broths with noodles. But the food is super fresh and delicious. And even a small bowl of noodle soup with a few appetizers was enough for me. They... More

Omg! The Calamari was soooooo good! I cannot forget how delicious it is, that i crave it everyday. Our relatives brought us here for lunch before catching the Amtrak at Philly. We ordered Calamari for appetizer and Vermicelli for entrees. Vermecilli is very good too. The portions are big so we ate half of the serving and take the rest... More

Very good Vietnamese food. My family goes frequently especially when it is cold for the delicious chicken pho soup. All the soups are served in oversized noodle bowls. We enjoy the appetizers and soup. The decor is basic but the service is friendly and accommodating.
