very good, very cheap pho – this is one of the cheapest meals I've ever had in NYC- and a pretty good one. Stick to the pho and other traditional, simple Vietnamese dishes and you'll have a great time. The extra large bowl came steaming hot, filled with noodles and beef, and just the right flavor. The spring rolls were excellent too. This place is dirt cheap, but also very clean for the neighborhood and similarly priced places.
Great, inexpensive Vietnamese food! – This place is a great find, I've been coming here for years. Awesome Vietnamese food - love the beef/lettuce/rice noodles app, sauteed shrimp, scallops and calamari over noodles, bun, everything. (The salty lemonade is interesting, worth checking out!). Service is fine and low-maintenance decor is charming. The prices are unbelievable; have a feast for 2 for the prices that some places charge for an entree! I always leave here content - full on amazing food and pleased at having spent so little money on it! My husband didn't like the food the 1st time I took him but the last time I did he found an entree he liked and is now mightily impressed with this place.
Best Vietnamese in New York – This is the best Vietnamese restaurant in New York City. The pho is great and you can have it so many ways. The "deep, star-anise perfume" mentioned in the editorial article... This person is definately not from Vietnam and knows nothing about real Pho. The service is great (the waiters remember my "usual" order and that I like my bean sprouts blanched). My favorite appetizers include the grilled beef "bun hoi" or rice noodle wrap and the grilled pork topped on prawn chips. The grilled shrimp with cold rice noodles is also good and of course the grilled pork chop over rice is delicious. You will not believe your check when you finish your meal. Great prices with large portions is what makes this place the restaurant I go to at least once a week.
Great food & service for great value! – This restaurant is THE favorite Vietnamese restaurant in the whole city of mine and my husband's. Perhaps not for a romantic occasion, but if sure makes up for that with its spacious accommodations, polite service and generous helpings -- and if you are with friends that you want to sit with for a long time, or simply enjoy an unhurried, delicious meal for GOOD price. Highly recommended!
Traditional Vietnamese--and super-cheap prices--offer plenty of bang for the buck. – The Scene
At this busy Chinatown destination, the peach-painted dining room is packed most nights with groups of noodle-slurping neighborhood teens and families. Get your order in fast; service is brusque, and niceties such as water refills tend to be ignored.
Half the Vietnamese menu is taken up by variations on pho, Vietnam's popular beef noodle soup. Go for the fiery, sweet-sour shrimp soup, packed with chunks of okra, pineapple and shrimp, flanked with starter plates like fat nuggets of grilled beef rolled in lettuce with rice noodles, crackling-hot, greaseless spring rolls or cool, crunchy rice-paper summer rolls. At $4 for a big bowl (or $4.95 for a huge one), the Pho Bang does offer bang for the buck; too bad the watery broth's missing the deep, star-anise perfume that characterizes the dish at its best.
Attention All Dieters! – For the weight conscious folks, try the vietnamese chicken salad. (#36 or 37 on the menu). A greaseless, crispy, zesty, dieter's delight consisting of finely shredded cabbage and lettuce, doused with shredded chicken breast, peanuts, and the signature vietnamese sweet/sour sauce. Served cold. Yum!!
Pho for the common man – while the atmosphere is a little sparse and makes one think of street cafe's in Asia the food is reliably good and the restaurant is clean. Also, the variety of Vietnamese dishes (while slightly limited) is good if you stick to the specialtys (you don't order steak in McDonnalds do you) so stick with the Pho, the Ban Cun, Ban Tap, and most of the roast (pork/beef/shrimp) over noodles - dishes are authentic.
slurpin goood! – a big bowl of pho complete with all sorts of beef parts and noodles for a mere 5 bucks is better than anything...pho sho is good!!
Bang for the buck! – If u are looking for a quick and good bowl of noodles in soup this is the place to go. No decor , no good service, just food. pork chop over rice is good too!
Yum! – Great food. Great coffee. Good service. A place you take your adventurous friends to impress them.
