I was shopping in the same area as this restaurant, and I needed a snack with protein in it. It was past lunch time, maybe 2:30 on a weekday - Friday; and there were still a few folks (mostly Asian - a good sign!) eating. I ordered 2 Spring Rolls, and actually expected the deep friend ones that you dip... More

Best pho around, been going for years. Spicy beef for me and chicken fried rice for the kids. Also the owner is awesome and remembers you and what you like to order.

After traveling late we looked for something close to our hotel. We arrived close to closing but were give fine unrushed service. Obviously family owned and operated . The pho was as good as any and the chicken-noodle bowl also very good. The required spring rolls also great. Good food, a pleasant family run setting. A nice change from the... More

We go to this family run restaurant at least once a month. The food is tasty and the family that runs the place is very friendly.I recommend the Spicy Beef Soup! Lunch is always crowded with students from the nearby community college.

We have tried several Vietnamese restaurants in the Whatcom County area and though some are okay, we seem to keep coming back to Pho Ly, a small establishment where a husband and wife bravely listen to orders in English, Vietnamese, Mandarin -- and I don't know, perhaps even another language or two. The owner is always smiling and seems to... More

We stopped in for lunch and it was SO busy, that has to tell you something. Our Pho was good and hot. It is my husbands favorite Pho place in Bellingham, he is kind of a Pho Junkie, and he is not a soup guy. I had chicken and he had a beef. Good value for the $ but the... More

Pho Ly is a great little hole-in-the-wall style Vietnamese place that reminds me of the Vietnamese food I good up on. It is always the same polite and happy guy who takes my order. They serve large portions at very reasonable prices. I have been going there for several years and have yet to find anywhere in Bellingham that compares.

Thank Morgan M
