“Good service, disappointing food”

Pho Hong Vietnamese Noodle Soup
Ranked #301 of 469 Restaurants in Richmond Hill
Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 August 2017

Stumbled upon this place for a quick bite, friendly service but disappointing food.
Had grilled chicken noodle soup and spring roll, both were too greasy.

Kind of understandable with spring roll as it was deep fried (although could have done a better job), but the noodle soup was covered with a thin layer of grease and burned & charred pieces. Trust that it was from the burned grilled chicken. Soup base wasn’t the usual light clear broth but tasted more like Korean soy sauce. Tiniest 4 pcs of chicken you can find in Vietnamese noodle soup.

Owner was kind and attentive. Seemed to care about the quality as he asked around for feedback a lot. Unfortunately, chef needed to step up.

Nested inside a strip mall - found this on our Map app as it's one of the closet to our nearby hotel suite, everyone just wanted a simple meal, comfort food - hot noodles soup (Pho) was the vote. Fair to call this your local greasy spoon serving various pho in broth - order junior, regular or extra large portion & priced accordingly - just not much meat while we had to hunt for it deep down in our big bowl - should've gone across to the Hong Kong style place instead. Service is no nonsense, basic & more or less run family-style. Given the overall semi, old-worn down deco, edible food & menu prices, sorry - struggled to assign an average rating & leaning to being a poor value - given the competitive "food" corridor choices along Hwy 7's strip malls, many open until the late, late night hours. Pass & go checkout others - walk around for 1/4 block or less for options - if you are already parked in this mall.
