I was so happy to find such delicious selections at Pho Chau. I really loved everything we had. My son and I kept sampling from each other's selections.

With the reviews I saw I was quite surprised at how mediocre the food was here. I got an appetiser and a couple of entrees. I've never had such bland and greasy Vietnamese food before anywhere.

I have been to Pho Chau many times and I have never been disappointed. The service is fast and friendly and the food comes out quickly. Also, the price is right if you are on a budget.

Pho Chau has a good variety of dishes from which to choose. And they are delicious. I had the Shrimp with fried vegetables and rice. It was very good and plenty of food.

Was staying at Mayo Clinic in cold winter and just wanted some hot soup. Service was quick and the soup was just what I needed.

Pho Chau cooks up amazing & plentiful food and a great price. I have been going here for years and love this locally owned family business. I start with spring rolls, and usually go with the Pad Thai, that said I have never found anything there that I didn't like.
