I've been going to Phan's for over 10 years and have been bringing my kids here since they were babies. In fact, my oldest had her first grain of rice (Japanese tradition) on her 100th day here <3. My kids get the B17 and I get the B4. It's always delicious. They even recognize me when I call in my... More

I have been there individually, and was with a group tour. They gave us a fantastic tasting of their great soups, and other Vietnamese, and other cuisines. I would highly recommend them to visit, if you want to experience the asian experience we had in Viet Nam, without having to fly there.....

Every time I am in the mood for Vietnamese food, this is my go-to place in Milwaukee. Even though the decor and the interior are nothing to look at, the food is amazing. Their prices are very reasonable, but be sure you look at the check to make sure they didn't add gratuity before you tip. To some people this... More

I only can say this is the best because I can't make this myself and I don't know many people who do make this. It's a quick, easy, cheap place to come to get some good soup and noodles. A family owned place adds more warmth to service. They have a lot of other good selections on the menu but... More

You can't really expect 5-star service here. The waiters are a bit hard to understand but if you're polite and respectful, then they'll be polite and respectful to you as well! Asian cultures value respect as a number one rule, so be open minded! My family have become regulars here over the years and we've tried just about everything on... More

A couple of months back, I went to Phan Garden for a bowl of Pho and waited for about 30-40 minutes for it to finally arrive!!! Unacceptable!!! This time I went by myself and enjoyed the Pho. However, when I got the bill, I was surprised to see that the waiter had charged me a 15% tip for a $8... More

While the atmosphere is nothing to write home about, the menu is rich with authentic tasting Vietnamese dishes. My personal favorite (the one that I'm 'forced' to eat every time) is the whole red snapper. Wow. Wow. Truly delicious even though a little tricky to eat! Its served whole on a bed of lettuce with cilantro, lime, carrots and a... More

Had dinner here a couple nights ago. Staff was friendly and service was good. Good spring rolls. Entrees were also very good. They have a quite extensive menu of Vietnamese food, as well as some Chinese entrees. Not real fancy, but clean. Typical independent ethnic joint physically. Plenty of parking on the side of the building as well. I would... More

Wow! I really cannot believe the negative reviews. I have been a patron of Phan's since early 2001 when I moved into the City. We love it. We also attend, often several times a month, usually early dinner. We find the menu impressive, the food wonderful and the staff treat us like honored guests. We are always welcomed warmly and...
