I walked in and thought we had walked into a pizza place by the smell. Sat down on our own and they gave us menus shortly after. The TV we were sitting nearest to was playing Maury, not really a show you want to see while eating. We ordered 2 spring rolls, 2 pho bowls, and 1 bubble tea. The spring rolls and pho came within an acceptable amount of time, however, the bubble tea didn't show up. 30 minutes after the staff was told about the mistake, and after some investigation to ensure we weren't lying about our order, the bubble tea arrived as we were finishing our meal.
There are plenty of Pho Restaurants in Federal Way so do yourself a favor and go to a different one. This one smelled bad (most Pho places smell great) and had terrible service. Someone should warn the owner that his/her business will fail if they don't take care of their customers.

I made the mistake of listening to someone who told me that the management has changed. So I decided to give this place another try. BAD MISTAKE.

At least they can say they are consistent since the Pho is still horrible. The broth is bland, the noodles are undercooked. There is no taste whatsoever to their Pho. Never again will I eat here.

The worst thing someone can say about an Asian restaurant is that the food is cooked for foreigners and is not authentic. Pho Tai is one of these restaurants.

Although I will say their frozen yogurt is really good. I agree with Adine and I will be back for the frozen yogurt but they will no longer take any more of my money and my valuable stomach space with their other nasty-ass food.

Ok first off I'm Vietnamese and from the Little Saigon area in Cali. I can say I know Pho as well as an Americans knows hamburgers, a Korean knows Kimchi, etc..

Actually this is my first review and I wasnt even planning on writing one until I saw Pho Tai get almost 5 freaking stars. I went here with my parents visiting from the Cali and we only went here because this is the only Pho restaurant in Federal Way that is open before 10am (which I can't understand since places in Cali open at 5am, afterall Pho is mostly a breakfast noodle) but that is another gripe I have.

Anyhow this place stinks. Wow I can't remember the last time I couldnt eat at least half a bowl and I WAS HUNGRY. The soup was like something I make at home (and I dont know how to cook Pho), noodles were undercooked, and they don't give you enough basil. The only thing I can say is their Tai (raw beef slices) was not bad. But I can't even give them credit for that, only the farmer who raised the cow could get that credit.

Stay away. Now I can't tell you any other place around here with good Pho since most of them stink here as well, but this PLACE IS THE WORST.

Stay home, buy some cup o' noodles and save your money.

Pros: Frozen Yogurt

Cons: Food, Food, Food

When you eat here you get big portions and courteous service. The atmosphere is a little trendy a little industrial and a little Asian. The Pho is very good. But I have to ask for extra cilantro. I always get a iced coffee which is delicious. Prices are fair and you get feed two for under $20.
