Wow this place is small and food are small
Portion with big prices.
Pho noodle medium ( is a small regular bowl in Most places ) $12.50 come with 3 slices of thin beef and 1 meatball cut into pieces .
Eggroll $7.50 for 2 little small eggroll.

Taste ok but still can stomach the over piece pho .

For years my husband & I have ALWAYS LOVED this little restaurant. Peter is charming & gracious host & the food althou a bit pricey has always beyond compare. Every other visit I would have gladly given 5 dots but not today

SO WHAT HAPPENED??? I walked in on crutches & the waitress wanted to seat us in the back of the room at a little 2 seater table. There were at least 8 other tables closer to the door which I asked if we could have and took one. There was no specials listed as you come in so we asked if OX tail Pho was still available. was told yes. I ordered it with NO ONIONS no scallions due to an allergy. Husband order the Vietnamese sandwich. I was concerned when the usual plate for the mix ins for the soup was unceremoniously plopped on the table. It looked sad, very small and very sad. one thin sliced of lime, one dried out slice of jalapeño and about a 1/4 cup of sprouts (for a large soup?) something was missing here. The soup arrived looked pretty & colorful but covered in raw onions. We sent it back & said we didn't want it replaced & would just split the sandwich.(which came out 5 minutes later- it was good but put together very sloppily- none of the artistic presence we were used to) then 7 minutes later the waitress plopped down a bowl of soup.
Several things wrong
1. we said we no longer wanted it since it was not originally served they way we had asked.
2. It certainly not a large unless they have changed the portions sizes.
3. In the Ox tail pho - it is Oxtail not some ox tail and some sliced beef
4. My husband got up to ask for some basil and was told they didn't have any. NO BASIL REALLY... YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME !!! would have ordered the pancake instead
5. we also had to get the condiments off of other tables since there were none we were ended up being seated.
6. Taste was fine but nothing felt fresh like we have become used to from here.All this 7. the prices had gone up which would not have bothered us except with item 1-6

It used to be a shop of comfort food but this was a shop of horrors. We will other certainly try the new Manchester restaurant when it opens but doubt we'd go back to E Hartford again

This is my second visit to Pho 99 and it is very good and dependable. The waitstaff works hard and gives very good service. The food is quite good. Better than you would suspect from a strip mall. I'll go back. Wish it was open on Sundays

I have eaten at Pho 99 in East Hartford and Wethersfield. Both restaurants serve the same great food. My fiancée and I love the food, I could wolf it down three times a week. The atmosphere is clean but non-descript.

If your hungry and like this type of food, you can't go wrong.
