Don't be put off by what it looks like - from outside this is a pretty cheap canteen-like kitchen. Once inside service was fast. Had the Chicken Pho and Spring Rolls - absolutely delicious. At half the price of other restairants is is a great tasty, healthy meal, at an outstanding price.

A VERY small restaurant (with VERY LOW prices) and VERY GOOD food! In a small strip-mall type of location on First street in San Jose. Great soups...large portions. Good fried rolls, too. Two people $23.

If you enjoy Pho - this is the place for you. I took the waiters recommendation and had a fantastic beef pho! Great portions for the price!

Sometimes when you're traveling on business you find a little place that could become a nice little haunt if you were to be back frequently. This is one of those. I had a delicious bowl of pho with bbq pork and shrimp served by the kindest lady who saw to it that I could have just one spring roll rather... More

A late lunch but service was fast and jiffy. I ordered the meet ball noodle soup but I was rather disappointed. The noodles was a mix of the flat rice noodle and rice vermicelli noodle, which obviously wasn't well cooked. Both noodles were still lumped in a ball, and wasn't separated during cooking. The beef balls were a bit tough... More

I find their Pho refreshing and excellent, the chicken was noisy and tender and the flavorful onions added a great taste. I highly recommend the pho soup and the spring rolls. If you do come here enjoy the atmosphere and quiet location. The patio level seating was great and I loved the lights! Make sure to ask for some hot... More

Needed a place to walk from Double Tree Hilton, so I looked up a bunch of places between Trip Advisor and Google and chose Pho Viet. Made an excellent choice - food was excellent spring rolls were perfect and so was the pork/shrimp & rice. I didn't feel like soup but I am sure if I ordered Pho it too... More

I went there for breakfast based on the reviews on this site, and wasn't disappointed. I had no idea what to choose, so the waitress had a tasty bowl of mixed meat Pho made up for me.

In town on business with an afternoon off. Stopped in to here to try the Pho. Really glad that I did. Place was very crowded but the staff was busy clearing tables and finding a place for me. I had chicken pho. The chicken was all white meat, sliced and then poached as it was in perfectly formed strips. Broth... More
