This Vietnamese restaurant is a hidden gem in China town. They offer different kinds of Vietnamese dishes, but their pho is very delicious. Their broth is just excellent and something you need to taste to see the difference. It never gets so crowded and service is fast.

This pho place is in the same building as Ocean Seafood on Broadway. It's one of those old Vietnamese restaurants that has been around forever. I like this place. Good pho and great pork BBQ. Don't expect to be served like a king or queen. Just order and wait for your food. You can park on the street or the parking lots surrounding the building. This place is old, but still a whole lot cleaner than the other Pho towards the 5 freeway.

Pros: pho, price

This place is okay for pho. I think only non-Vietnamese give this restaurant a high rating for good pho. The pho is not up to par for Vietnamese standards.

I must say that Pho 79 truly pioneered and dominated Vietnamese cuisine. I'd patron almost all of their locations, but I can't give much to this one. The food itself is great with the same great taste, but lacking some quality. For instance, the disappointment was when you order the largest bowl of the Extra Large Special Pho', you get franchised style quantity - which is small. The best one to go to would be in Alhambra on the corner of Garfield and Main St...good service, highly praised ambience, HUGE portions and plenty of parking and plenty more of everything else around the area!

I have been coming here with my parents since I was a little girl. I'm now in my 30's and love going back, especially to introduce friends to Vietnamese food. The ambiance is not the most desirable but they've got to keep the prices down somehow. This place is exactly what you can expect from a crowded noodle house in Vietnam. Other than pho, try to switch it up with the vermicelli w/pork & egg rolls.

If you haven't tried Pho, walk don't run to Pho 79 on Broadway. It's a veritable symphony of tastes and flavors. Try the Special Pho 79, throw in the fresh basil, jalapenos, some hot sauce and squeeze in the lime...then slurp to your heart's content. Try it with imperial rolls (fried pork "egg" rolls, that you wrap in lettuce and mint leaves and dunk into a special sauce). You'll be back. Trust me.

It is the best. I hav ebeen going there for 10 yrs and it never has disappointed me. Always good food when you need it. Especially on cold days, nothing beats a hot bowl of pho. Always a good bet for a diverise group. I have always seen a bunch of different ethnicities there at any time.

Pros: Cheap, Good food

Cons: Crowded, Limited english

In Short
At peak times, the comfortable, homespun space bustles with contented soup slurpers. The Vietnamese menu is basically fast food without the frying: rice or egg noodles and individualized trimmings--thin beef slices,…
