The Vietnamese beef pho here is very delicious. The beef is very tender and the broth is clear yet flavorful. A side of the dough bread is an excellent complement. When you dip the bread in the broth, it soaks up the soup and the...More

Family has been going here for over a decade and the place is still our favorite. Great pho tai-chin with hefty portions. The pork vermicelli bowl is our go-to. The staff is friendly and service is quick. Cash only!

Ummm, can this place be any shadier?! Walking over, I felt the need to keep looking over my shoulder, then I near the end of the block and had to do a double take. This red shack-ish looking place was where I intended to go....More

In all fairness I have to rate Pho Bac right-down-the-middle-of-the-road average. We got three large bowls of their Pho Tai a dish that I am used to calling Raw Beef Noodle in other Vietnamese Restaurants. The serving certainly was large and the soup was certainly...More

There were 5 in our group we were seated and served promptly. . The servings were very generous. The meatballs had a texture that was a little unusual, but yummy comfort food. Great value!

The restaurant, shaped like a red boat, is at the corner of South Jackson and Boren in Little Saigon. The pho is excellent, and the service is prompt and friendly. All in all, great value for money

I get pretty much the same pho every time, regardless of the restaurant. Pho Bac has great meat and noodle. The soup, however, has a hint of sugar, which sometimes is too much. I use the sriracha to mask it if it bothers me. But...More

Okay, I can see "the Boat" (this restaurant has inexplicably decorated itself to resemble a very red boat with a fake prow et al) from our office window but I would travel miles to eat the best Pho in Seattle. Brilliant broth is the foundation...More
