Favorite place for Pho in Portland, nah make that anywhere.. I started out getting the simple Pho Tai but moved up to the tripe/fish ball eventually. Best broth anywhere as well. You have to try it..

I'm not going anywhere else. I get the #9 or #11. They bring plate of peppers and basil to rip up well before soup arrives so you don't have to muck about. Great soup, prices and service. Decor is somewhat lame, but most decent Pho places

Here is my top five worse things found in this restaurant.

- Their food taste real good. Majority of their food taste is from MSG. If you want to "AGE" yourself quicker, eat more of their MSG-MADE food. It will definitely help.

Really good Pho, really good broth and tender meat. I eat pho several times a month and this is one of my favorites for sure.

Good soup, great prices for the amount. The place itself is a little dingy, but the taste of the broth made me feel warm and cozy on the inside!

I am not crazy about noodle soup but theirs was really good. I had the beef soup, very filling, and lots of noodles and veggies. Not too expensive either and very filling

can't say this was the best rice dishi've ever had, or even near it. it's rather pricey for the fare, but the atmosphere is very vietnamese. everyone inside eating was vietnamese and enjoying a coffee with the rest of their families. the pho was pretty good, but everything else was either hard, or slightly undercooked.
would only eat the pho on occasion.

I love Pho Hung. I also like that they open at 9, so it's possible to eat pho for breakfast. They've got a great assortment of other Vietnamese foods, too, but their pho is the best around.

This restaurant has good service and very good vietnamese soup.
Their service is very fast and the food is fresh and healthy. All I ever ate there is noodle soup which is very good.

Coming from Vietnamese woman, their Pho is not good quality. All they do is put lots of chicken broth, msg, and sugar. Real Pho should come from chicken bones. Service is bad. I was waited on this guy who picked up his phone while he was taking our order. He didn't think I was Vietnamese, and was talking about some car sales. So annoying. I would never come back here again.

This is a little place which has an up and down reputation for me. Some days it is great and other days it is just barely ok. When they are on I recommend just about everything here.

you have to try #37, i dream about it, truly! the pho is fantastic, perfect anytime really. my husband told me about this place before we moved here, and then how happy were we that it was in our neighborhood! yay! great place for families, the staff is really friendly, to my children too- this place is like your living room or something. the decor isn't important to me in any restaurant really (is it clean-yes. is the food good (great!)-yes. attentive staff-yes) but if that is your thing then you may need to try somewhere else. we love this place.

My wife introduced me to the wonders of Pho - and we have gone to a number of Pho restaurants in Portland - but we always find ourselves coming back to Pho Hung as a favorite.

This is not a fancy restaurant, so you are not going here for the atmosphere or decor. The food is the attraction here. The staff is always friendly and helpful - when we take our baby, the staff always takes the time to stop by and say hi to her.

Generally, what I look for when comparing Pho restaurants is the quality of the broth. Broth varies from restaurant to reastaurant, and even single restaurants will have variations in their broth from time to time. Pho Hung is of the more hearty style of broth - more beefy and occasionally more salty that most. Excellent and consistent Pho here.

I've also had the vermichelli bowls, and the fried spring rolls (excellent - a tad on the greasy side)
Their hot and iced coffee is also a nice treat.

Bottom line, great food and a great price.
And Pho works better than chicken noodle soup if you are trying to ward off a cold.

Pros: Great value, Wonderful food, Go for the Pho

Cons: This is a place to eat at, not comment on the decor

My guess is that the vermicelli here is a better bet than the pho. There is a lot to like here. I like the fried sesame ball with the bean filling. They have a multitude of bubble drinks. The soup however, seemed overly salty, and at the same time a little bland. The atmosphere is crowded and fairly noisy. i didn't mind that so much, but I did mind having the big cart with the dirty dishes constantly being parked beside or in back of me. I will probably go back to try the vermicelli, but for pho, i am sticking to Pho Van.

Since the place was recommended to me by a friend who's from Vietnam, it must be authentic. I've had beef noodle soup at a handful of places in Portland and Pho Hung on 47th and Powel is by far my favorite. I love their spring rolls and the broth is not watered down. I drive to the east side to get my fix whenever I can. A good trick to finding a decent asian restaurant is to follow the asian community and go where they go! Just be prepared when your asian friends laugh at you when you order the "Beginner" bowls.

Having lived in Portland, I've grown up eating this food at least twice a week. It is completely authentic and delicious. It's hard to find quality Pho, especially at this price! This is definitly the place to go if you want an authentic Vietnamese dining experience. I've now relocated to a city nearly 8 hours away, but my family and I still make the trip, when we can, to eat at this restaurant. The Pho Tai is delicious and where else can you find avacado milkshakes?

Cons: It can get really busy.

I guess I don't know what Vietnamese food is supposed to taste like. The broth for my wife's Pho tasted like straight fish sauce, and the meatballs were like rubber. My vermicelli was a bit better, but there was very little meat and shrimp. The egg rolls were dripping with grease. Needles to say, we won't be going back.

Awesome Pho and awesome prices. There are few places that are this good, but many imitators for sure. This is a contender for one of the best Vietnamese places in the area.

Pho isn't just something that is done perfectly everywhere. There are places that add fancy toppings to theirs to cover up the mediocre taste, but with Pho Hung, it's great, traditional Vietnamese beef noodle soup. My father was always telling me how great Pho Hung was, and the only image that popped up in my mind was the one on Powell, which I had been to before which I found dirty and unwelcoming, but my dad said that the one on 82nd was way different. So he took my mother and me to try it and we were both very impressed. It's tastefully decorated, the service was ok and the food was delicious, but the one thing that sets this restaurant apart from others is that the diners are all Vietnamese. That was the sure sign that it is authentic Vietmese cuisine, yay yay yay! Go to Pho Hung!

My wife and I like to eat pho from time to time. I was always shocked with some of the prices at the more popular places that shall remain nameless. We decided to try Pho Hung off Powell Blvd while we found ourselves on that side of town one evening, and we were pleasantly surprised. The selection is fantastic, the food was well prepared and the taste was phenominal. We only had pho, but we plan to go back to try the salad rolls that looked very appetizing on the table next to us. We plan to visit the other locations as well. This is a GREAT VALUE. I was shocked when I got the bill. I figured it would be low since we didn't really order much, but what we ordered was plenty of food. Thumbs way up. If you want pho...this is the place to go.

I go here all the time with my family. It's a place worth every dime. The staff is family oriented, they are friendly as can be. Pho hung has been around for ages. It's one of the first pho restaurants in Portland. Their cheap eats is a win in my book.

Pho was very good, but the cha gio - Vietnamese eggrolls - were not. They're traditionally thin and crispy, these were fat and oily. Most mainstay rice and noodle dishes were good. Vietnamese coffee here is made the way it should be: in a filter with condensed milk added separately. Their I-Hop style menu takes away from authenticity. The server took my order, came back about 12 minutes later and said, can I take your order. Oh well.

The food is very tasty and true to the vietnamese tradition (at least it seemed that way). Five bucks gets a giant bowl of flavorful soup with meat and veggies. If youre not feeling adventurous the beef or chicken noodle soups are great. The salad rolls are also a good safe bet. Theres a lot of space so you don't feel cramped. The service isnt bad, but you have to be a little resourceful. You have to seat yourself and get your own bill. At least thats how I perceived it to be. I would definitely come back, but try something different. Pork skin kind of tastes how it sounds, for some reason i had something else in mind.
