We visited about a year ago and the pho was awful. Just like dishwater basically. We had a hankering for soup on a cool, wet day so thought we'd try again as the reviews had improved. This time it had improved. But was still lacking...More

San José does not offer a large option of good soups, maybe due to the warm weather or not so sure why, but theirs definitely not a soup culture here. Pho offers yummy options and healthy ones as well. Lots of veggies in good broth....More

The first thing you need to smell when walking into a restaurant named after the flagship dish of a whole nation, is the broth! That smell has to be coming out the kitchen and just filling the whole place making you want to order now!...More
