Normal portions are very big so head towards the small portions unless you're crazy hungry. The dishes that we had were as tasty as they could be, filling and served promptly. All in all Pho 79 is a great place for lunch in my opinion....More

Good food. But don't expect secure container for soup to go and definitely not for the small cashier to bag it for you. Wow.

While RVA has great pho restaurants. Pho79 is the best of the best. Love the food, the young vibe, and the great service. My boys would say this is their favorite noodle house, and understandably so. A great restaurant that never disappoints.

This is the best for a quick flavorful bowl lunch. The fresh ingredients and the authentic broth make for a truly tasteful experience. They can make the stuff so hot you will think they invented hell. I want to thank the servers for rescuing me...More
