My husband and I were super excited to visit Pho as we moved to Costa Rica from Asia and we miss Asian food like you can't even imagine! Unfortunately, it did not live up to our expectations, with the exception of good service and nice spring rolls. But we came for the Pho and it was nothing to brag about.... More

Thanks for your review. We are not about excuses but we had some issues recently and the PHO was effected. We have fixed those issues and the Pho is much better. We would love a chance to have you try another bowl on us. We hope you give us another try. Regards. Donald. More

If you want to taste something different visit this place, but its a poor choice for Pho. Mainly the broth is insipid, and the portion of meat, noodles and vegetables is little.

You simply cannot beat the freshness of the food in this place. So far i have tried the soup (pho), mango salad, cold noodles with shrimp (bun), springrolls and curry. Everything is delicious! The service is nice and attentive. The place is pretty small and usually get full so i would recommend to reserve a table. My favourite spot for... More

I was hesitant at first because I am part Vietnamese and grew up eating Pho my whole life. I read some of the reviews and decided to venture out. My... More

I believe this is a good restaurant, slightly over the average. Nothing fancy, nothing complicated. Even though I had higher expectations, my meal was good. The spring rolls were really good, I ordered the regular vegetarian ones. The peanut sauce was good. There are other options around, but this is a good one. I had a Pho plate as main... More
