We visited this restaurant on a rainy Saturday evening based on other TA reviews, and it did not disappoint. The owner seated us and took our order and served us our drinks and dinners. My husband had the pho ga, with extra veggies which was really nice, and I had the pad thai dinner. Both were excellent! The broth of... More

This place is really a well hidden gem that lives up to the reviews given on tripadvisor. Both the pho as the salad spring rolls were just excellent! Without tripadvisor I wouldn't have stopped here but I am very glad I did.

We discovered this restaurant by accident ... we had gone to the sushi place around the corner and saw this place when we were parking the car. It's clean, inviting atmosphere, very friendly, and they served delicious pho. No complaints at all!! We'll be back, that's for sure.

We were in Morgan Hill for a brief stay and, as usual, we perused Trip Advisor recommendations and reviews for eateries in the area. Since my wife was recovering from a camping trip, Pho seemed like the perfect prescription; especially given the rave reviews for the Simmering Pho Café. To which we will now add ours. We went on Tuesday... More

Best tasting Pho ever. I've eaten at about 50+ places. A bit of a Pho-natic. Broth is extremely flavorful. Additions and meat are fresh and tasty. Overall it simply tastes fresh and clean. Not sodium, glutamates, and/or fatty. Shrimp rolls also good. "Homemade hot sauce" is good if you are into that. I sampled just to try it. Environment is... More

Wow... this place really IS a "hidden gem". Definitely REAL FOOD - freshly made from scratch - and the flavors are amazingly complex and delicious. After reading other reviews here on this website, we decided to check it out on a Friday night. Good thing we got there before 6pm, as the place was already humming and filled up quickly.... More

Based on past reviews, a friend and I met there while traveling for work in the area. Seat yourself atmosphere with attentive staff. We ordered Thai iced tea with our rare beef pho and it came out within a few minutes. Great flavor and they recommended a sweet and spicy seasoning, which made it even more flavorful! Fair pricing and... More

This is a hidden gem tucked away in a nondescript strip center on Main St in Morgan Hill. What sets their Pho head and shoulders above anyone else's is the broth. The co-owner and chef spends hours each day making her broth from scratch using many, many different spices. The result is a silky, complex broth with minimal salt and... More
