I'd go to Pho One because it's a bigger restaurant where as the places I usually go are hole in the wall. Their pho is decent although not as great as the one I often visit. I like the take the family to Pho One due to the space available. It looks cleaner too!

Very respectable pho. Average size portions but go here with a few friends to enjoy together. Good garage parking on crowded Kapiolani Blvd. Service is slow but they are usually crowded.

Clean flavorful broth, large portion, firm noodles. Its all you want in a great bowl of Pho. Good location - we ended up walking back to Waikiki from there. Not a short walk, but safe and gave you a good feel for the city itself, which to us in interesting.

We came across this retaurant only because it is just a 2 block walk from the Ala Moana hotel but after eating there once we ended up returning to it regularly throughout our 10 day stay in Honolulu. This is an unpretentious place - it's where you go to eat good food without caring much about ambiance. The food is... More

After my therapy I thought it's a good idea to eat pho. I decided to eat here since it is right across. Their pho comes in 2 sizes, medium and large. I decided to get medium. My pho was a little small for $13 and it comes in this little bowl where you have to be very careful not to... More

This unpretentious restaurant has an extensive menu of delicious Viet Namese food. We had Pho with beef which was superb. Adding some of the chili provided made it even more tasty. Service was friendly and rapid and prices were good value. Enjoy a taste of Viet Nam in Honolulu.

They have the best salt and pepper shrimp, it melts in your mouth. If you are eating here, you definitely need to try the salt and pepper shrimp. I was super impressed with the food there. The pho was also well made and they give large portions and the food was reasonably priced.

Had dinner there. Was quite busy but service was fairly quick. Walk in with no reservations needed. The pho was of good quality as was pork chop with rice.

Whenever I am in Honolulu I eat here on a regular basis. I have been to both Hanoi and Saigon, and the pho here is just as good. The cost is not cheap, but then again this is Hawaii. My only complaint is the that the staff can be a little distant or cold. Also, when I pay my bill... More
