I was so excited eating their pho.. either I was really hungry or it was just that good. I got the thin cut steak and meatballs. The small size was perfect. One of my favs in San Jose.

I only get the chicken pho when I go here but I love it. The broth is very flavorful. I am amazed every time I go there that it is always full. The clientele is usually all asian, I take that as a very good recommendation and bring friends with me. It is also a go to place for take... More

I'm on the fence about it being the best tasting but for sure it's the cheapest place I've been to in SAN jose, $6.75 for their regular sized is a pretty good deal. Our second time here, this time the beef ball pho, while pretty tasty the balls were a little hard and rubbery for my liking. I usually don't... More

This is by far the best Pho in San Jose. Located in a strip mall near 101 and Capitol Expwy, this is a very popular place with locals. I've been going here for a couple of years now and what differentiates their Pho from those of other restaurants is their broth. It's flavorful without being too salty or dark. I... More

This is our go to place for pho. I swear it helps speed recovery when suffering from a cold! They only serve pho and variety of non alcoholic drinks so limited menu. The place is always crowded so I am not the only one who loves this place. The service is great, fast. Pho is a salty food so beware.... More

This place is probably the cheapest but has the most tasty broth in our area. They have fast service and they have my favorite avocado smoothie with pearl nade from real avocado - not powder. Their serving for a small bowl is just right for me - with enough beef meat, white noodles, and fresh vegetables. We come here once... More

Exclusively pho and teas, shakes and other drinks. The place is always packed. It is favorite pho place for me and my husband. Great on a cold day or when you have congestion and sore throat. I love the pearl taro shake too!

It was a month away from home and my Asian heritage started to kick in. Los Angeles is not particularly known for their Asian cuisine, and what they do have is mostly fried, dried goods (banh pho, hu tieu, mi etc). So after searching high and low, my cravings was pleased when we arrived at Pho Y1. The broth is... More

Pho Y 1 is one of the best places to get Pho. The reviews do not lie the broth here is delicious. They have a dozen combination of beef cuts and one chicken. If you don't like fat or tendons then #12 is for you. I also tried their avocado shake. I know it sounds gross but it was pretty... More

We were recommended this place out of all the Pho places in San Jose. We ended up quite disappointed. The Pho was OK but the soup was not the tastiest of all; normally I would have drunk all the soup before starting on the noodles, but this time I gave up half way. It was just missing something. The portion... More
