I have written many reviews on Trip Advisor and this is the first time I have written a negative review. The atmosphere is simple, but clean. We were greeted by a nice waiter and then it went down hill from there. My husband and I ordered from the appitizer menu Vietnamese spring rolls and won tons. The spring rolls were... More

We have been waiting a long time to try Pho 79. It was worth the wait. The menu was extensive and the staff was accommodating. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Pho (pronounced Fu!) 79. On Virginia Beach Blvd has good food however the ambiance is poor. The Pho 79 on General Boothe close to the Ocean front is alot nicer with the same great food. If you looking for a place to run in and get a nice bowl of soup VB is ok but for a nice dining experience... More

Heard a few good things about this place so the wife and i came by for lunch. The place was about half full which was a good sign to me. Maybe this sounds somewhat racist but i was happy to see so many asians eating here so i felt like this wasnt another PF Changs or something. Everyone was super... More

I had not been here in years. I ordered the Banh Canh vegetarian soup in order to try a different noodle. The broth was excellent, the tofu was tasty but I did not initially like the noodles. They were very chewy and difficult to eat. Since I did not finish my soup, I took it home and by sitting overnight,... More

We ordered House Special Fried rice, Seafood Pho, Spicy Pho, egg rolls. Each and every dish was great. The phos were piping hot and the fried rice was seasoned perfectly. I do recommend this place.

I have been wanting to try pho for a while but didn't have the guts to walk into a foreign restaurant and order something I had never tried, without friends to help me feel less "uneducated" about the cuisine. I had beef pho (kind of like a wonton soup or a ramen) and my husband had a vermicelli dish (grilled... More

While the food was the same as the Hampton and Newport News locations, the atmosphere and service was NOT. We basically waited on ourselves the entire visit, having to get up and ask for more drinks, a take-out box, the check. The restaurant is need of a major deep cleaning, as well as the restrooms. Will definitely stick to Hampton... More

This is our go-to-place when we want excellent Vietnamese food, friendly service, comfort food, something good we don't have to prepare, reasonable prices, or take friends. We have never had a bad meal or service there. We just plain like Pho 79 Hilltop. You can also order take out or have it delivered. Hilltop is closer to the Beach than... More
