We have eaten here on numerous occasions and still cannot get enough of their yummy phos. They are cheap and delicious (2,5 USD for chicken, beef or veg pho, 3,5 USD for seafood and 5 USD for special pho - this one is HUGE). We will go back.

Lucky Pho was on my list of places to visit in Phnom Penh - got to Street 178 and couldn't find it, so we ended up in Special Pho - Luckily it turned out to be the same place. This was my first ever Pho experience, and it was delicious. The broth was rich and flavoursome, the noodles were slippery... More

The Pho served has absolutely no MSG and this makes it all the more appealing. The broth indeed has flavor. The pho is inconsistent. Been on occasions where the pho broth is phenomenal and other days it should not even be considered as broth but water. The meat handling of the Pho is a question mark. What can you expect... More

Their phos are full or flavours! They all taste great, but my favourite one is the vegetarian one. I usually go there for lunch but it's also a nice place for dinner. 2.5$ is a good price, considering this place is on Riverside.

The only thing good about the pho is the broth is clear. The only way to way to make clear broth is vegetables which is perfect. No funny smelling broth, but everything else is ok.

I grew up eating pho, and the pho here would compare favorably with many Vietnamese restaurants elsewhere. That said, they do use a wider rice noodle than is customary. We ate here twice and each time ordered the beef pho and coconut juice (a fresh, whole coconut); each bill amounted to $7 for two people. Service is quick and friendly.... More

Nice restaurant - cool location at the mekong river and our vegetarian Pho was also very good. BUT: we ordered a coconut for Drink and a beer. Beer was fast and very good but the coconut was a coupple of ours old and filled up with water. That wasn't the taste of real coconutmilk! It was water! We were lucky... More

You would not go to Lucky Pho for the stylish decor or the friendly & helpful staff... they are both lacking, if you ask me.... However, they can get away with all of that because the food is simply delicious. I do not have a lot of experience with pho, so I cannot make any comparisons with other places. All... More

Went to this restaurant on a recommendation in the Lonely Planet and wasn't disappointed. We both had the beef pho with diet cokes and it came to $8. The pho was really tasty with a big plate of accompaniments such as fresh chilies and mint which after a day traipsing around was just the thing we needed. As the other... More

Pho in Vietnamese translates to "noodle" so these places usually specialize in noodle soup. The one on 178th St is particularly good, 'Just $3.50 for seafood soup. Beer costs a little more but they will deliver it to any nearby establishment.
