I always have number 51 or the chicken curry, salad roll, Mekong, and the Ginger Cre'am Brule' or Banana bread pudding.

One of multiple spots around portland under the Pho Van name, this is a really solid Vietnamese place. Phos (soups) are really good but so too are the rice and noodle dishes. What sets this place apart from many of the other Vietnamese spots is the decor which is a bit more modern.

Sometimes it's really good and on point and other times it's greasy and slow and terrible. It's a crapshoot like Terry Kath playing Russian roulette.

The restaurant was represented by a friend to be the best Vietnamese restaurant in Portland - failed! The service was bad, the tables were dirty and the food was bad. We are deeply disappointed by this popular restaurant. The ownership should pay more attention to the issues raised above before customers stop coming altogether.

The atmosphere was quiet and pleasant. Our waitress was attentive. The food seemed very authentic and nicely presented. The flavors and variety were delicious and unusual. The portions were more than adequate.

We tried Pho Van for dinner on a Monday. It was our first time. Wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Entrees were tasty, using fresh herbs and veggies, and well prepared proteins. House made sauces on each table were particularly flavorful . Sides are pricier than other pho restaurants, but a bit bigger and clearly also made fresh. Pot of... More

This place is what a crave on a daily bases. It somehow exceeds my expectations and keeps getting better. Everything on the menu is pretty much amazing. Great staff and ownership as well. Great little bar on one side (great happy hour), and street food side on the other. If you want cleaner, outstanding Vietnamese food, then look no further.... More
