They've mastered the deep rich flavor of Pho and serve it up quickly with a smile! The staff is great, the restaurant is cute and super clean. The Bahn Mi is fantastic. If you live close by, make yourself a regular.

Great authentic Pho in the RiverMarket -- some of the servers struggled with English, but clearly the cook knew what they were doing. Very authentic Pho and Vietnamese coffee. Great prices, good portions.

This was my third trip to Nguyen Pho, and it has been very satisfying each time. Not quite as good as Vietnam Cafe down the street, but the atmosphere is nicer and there are tables available to sit without a wait for lunch. The bun...More
