Had lunch here with another couple. We each had different things and the consistency of the food between the dishes was troubling . The pho was the best dish, a curry a distant 2nd, and the pork rice bowl and the spring rolls were tasteless...More

Went to Pho Ba Luu for dinner and had an incredible meal. The beef and rice bowl was flavorful and was plenty for one person. The pork Banh Mi was excellent and fresh. I will definitely be going back.

Everything about Pho Ba Luu is terrific, from the decor to the atmosphere, from the creative interpretations of Vietnamese food to the staff. I appreciated that there were vegetarian options, and tried both the vegetarian pho and the tofu banh mi -- both were outstanding....More

I‘ve had noodle bowls and spring rolls before, but this food was so much more flavorful. Plus the setting in the back deck is extra special with the courtyard and adjacent boutiques. Very cozy, friendly welcoming staff.

My son and wife wanted to try this place since they read about it. It is located in a converted garage, but fixed up in kind of a retro style. You order at the counter and they bring your meal to you once it is...More

I actually passed this place up before finally finding it to meet friends for lunch. It's billed as Vietnamese street food. It's tasty and filling to say the least. If you like Vietnamese food and bowls of noodles then you are in luck. I didn't...More

My wife and i both recently ate here. I was a little uncertain about the pate on the sandwiches, but tried it anyway. I don't like liver, but it somehow made the sandwich even better. The atmosphere is really nice too.

I dined here about a week ago with a business colleague. It was under $10, delivered promptly with courteous service. The atmosphere is bright, fun, modern and clean. I'd gladly go here again!
