I want to start off by saying, Pho doesn't rank as one of my favorite foods... but that's because I don't have Pho Kim Long in my town (Clermont, FL). This is by far the best pho I've ever tasted. The huge bowl of broth is rich, the meat is tender and juicy, the noodles perfectly done. I kind of... More

Menus is in english so even if the owners are from Vietnam, you can get trough that. The portions are enormous and tasteful. It is a cheap place, but don't forget to bring cash because CREDIT CARDS ARE NOT EXCEPTED!!! Main courses for about 10 dollars and beverages for about 3 dollars. The best fried rice noodles I have ever... More

We've tried many Beef Pho, including those from Vietnam. But the beef noodles at Pho Kim Long has got to be the best! Huge portion of noodles with loads of ingredients at an affordable price. The taste of the soup was sweet and rich. Good to the last slurp!

Kim long is a good place to have food either solo or with family or friends. The price is affordable for most people in Bay Area.

Ate a lot of Pho national wide. Ordered #1 The soup base is OK. Enough beef in the bowl. It came out fast. The biggest problem is- the soup is only warm at best. After you put the bean spouse in. The meal is not hot enough. Large bowl is close to $10, kind of high. I had to ask... More

It's one of those Seinfeld "no soup for you" type places in that the ladies serving and running that place are ,,,,, down ,,,, to,,,,, business. They gave me the menu and without leaving took out the pad and asked if I was immediately ready to order. I was not. I was a first timer. If you can get past... More
