I love the Pho Yum located on Delaware Ave. The beef pho is tasty. I also love the grilled slice pork sandwiches here because the bread is toasted just right (warm and slightly crunchy on the surface but soft on the inside), which is contrary...More

I finally made it to the Vietnamese restaurant Pho Yum. Delicious, generous servings, friendly and prompt service (perfect for limited lunch time!!!). Of course, I had their noodle soup, which they offer in a wide variety of renditions, including the vegetarian. I selected the Phở...More

Have visited both Albany Government Plaza and Central Ave locations. They do what they do with excellence! We love their spring rolls (shrimp in rice paper) and Pho - always with “double Yum” (stock flavoring), vegetables and Tofu, but usually also with chicken or beef....More

My girlfriend had recommended that we go here for some pho once it started to get a bit cooler. I’d never had pho before so I tried the beef pho and some summer rolls. Everything tasted very good, and I plan on going back this...More

We'd had a late lunch, so were looking for something light, and this was just down the road from our hotel. We arrived after 9 pm, and they were scheduled to close at 10, but the server did not indicate in any way that we...More

Pros: • Good location, easy to find • Pho is okay • Tentative service Cons: • Only one server, so you may probably expect a bit delivery of food • Bun bo Hue was not authentic. • Menu is kind of confusing. If you want...More

Ok so I love Anthony Bourdain's travels around the world. He raves about pho. I asked around, what's the local best? Friends, family, a Vietnamese Doctor I know; Pho Yum. You may disagree, I respect. I have now been to pho restaurants in 3 cities...More

We recently visited on a wintry Friday night, and the pho was just what the weatherman ordered. Only 2 other tables had customers, so the service was very prompt and friendly. We thought that the portions were generous, as 2 out of 5 of us...More
