What a hidden gem - fair prices, good food and friendly service. Had the vegetarian pho and two vegetarian starters, which all tasted great. Highly recommended!

If you are willing to settle for a very basic setting - you will truly treasure your visit here. If you want more upscale and fancier, this is not for you. It is a family affair run by, I believe, first generation in the US. There is nothing fancy, service is usually prompt and efficient but with none of the... More

This is a small, family run restaurant. For appetizers, we love their fresh spring rolls, their sautéed tofu and their papaya salad. The spicy chicken soup with lemon grass (#25) is really tasty. For bun (noodles), #43 has everything in it. Actually, any dish we have ordered was excellent. Prices are more than reasonable - with a large tip and... More

Pho Minh has a "hole-in-the-wall" atmosphere, with amazing food at a really good price! Their Pho is delicious, as are plenty of other dishes. I've been here dozens of times, and plan on going back dozens more. FYI Cash Only!

We were in Pitt when it was really cold and decided we wanted some Pho. We happened to stumble onto this place and new instantly it was the real deal when we walked in. It's a small hole in the wall run by a Vietnamese family. They did not disappoint either. I would eat here a lot in the winter... More

We had noodle bowls that were fresh and flavorful. The Special noodle soup was spicy and warmed my tounge and soul. Great food and worth the effort to find the restaurant!

I just came from having late lunch/ early dinner at Pho Minh. It's almost a year since my last review and I wanted to update my original review. The o-going construction on the street in front has had a detrimental affect on its business, but not the dining experience! In fact, because it's no longer as busy as it once... More

For those non- Vietnamese of us, it's tempting to pronounce it "foe, rather than feh, as it is actually pronounced, but get past this detail and you have a great Asian noodle shop! Quite low-key and inexpensive, Pho Minh is located in an interesting up and coming area of Pittsburgh called Garfield, which is known for its Hipsters, art galleries... More

While seeking good Pho, we came across Pho Minh during our visit to Pittsburgh. It doesn't seem to be in the nicest area and the restaurant itself isn't the least bit fancy-- more like walking into an old fashion diner. But we were greeted with such warmth. Seated near the window, we were immediately brought hot Jasmine tea. The menus... More

Visited 3 times, the basil and sprouts are always fresh. The tea is hot and included. BYOB with no corkage fee. The beef is always tender. Wouldn't recommend the NY strip stick to the basics. We also order Bon Cuon or something (shrimp in rice rolls) Excellent in Hoisin Sauce. Cash only. Closed Tuesdays. Open late.
