We went to Trams to meet up with some folks going on a trip to Vietnam with us. The Pho was recommended and it was excellent. Likewise, the spring rolls were very fresh. The spicy prawns were not that spicy. The fish base was a little heavy. Tram's does not serve alcohol, but you can bring your own and they... More

Do not be put off by the appearance, the Pho is what brings you back, again and again. Not an extensive menu selection but it well worth the visit. Nice noodle selection, cannot comment, still have not tired of the Pho.

The dining room is not the most put together, but the pho is the best I've had. Our server was great! The food is authentic and so are the people who work here.

Stopped in for a quick lunch and I'm glad I did. I had the Saigon soup and spring rolls. Both were excellent and were very fresh. The soup came in a large bowl and along with the greens, had shrimp and sliced pork. The spring rolls were very fresh too. The soup came with a side of bamboo shoots. I'm... More

After reading reviews, my wife and I tried Tram's Kitchen in Lawrenceville. Very unassuming location, but the Pho is amazing. My wife had the spicy prawns and we both had egg rolls which were very good, The Pho however is one of the best things I have ever eaten. Mine was with mixed meat, but it was the broth that... More

Tried the pho and spring rolls. Very close to what we had in Vietnam on our recent trip. Very basic place. Clean and good service. They don't take credit cards. An ATM is conveniently located inside the entrance door. Have been back several times and have brought friends. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

We chose this place because of the good review online. We were the only customers at 11 AM in the restaurant. We were seated immmediately and ordered spring rolls and phos. Spring rolls tasted pretty good but It was odd that we were required to order minimum two spring rolls. The broth of pho was ok for me, but not... More

I had high expectations based on all the reviews, but the food was really disappointing. The service was good and friendly. I am comparing to Le's in Boston which I love. I had the chicken pho--it came luke-warm and the broth was missing something. Husband and kids had the grilled pork vermicelli. The pork did not have that delicious grilled-ness... More
