in town for some R&R. Reviewers talked this place up, was a nice find. beef pho particularly good with very fresh ingredients, rich broth, and a surprising amount of meat. Too bad I don't live closer or I'd make this a regular stop.

After hearing so many great stories about this hole-in-the-wall place in Bloomfield-Lawrenceville section of the city, gave it a try, but was somewhat disappointed. Ordered Saigon soup. The broth had no depth and was quite bland, almost as if the boiling of the bones was done with only 30 minutes of cooking instead of 3 hours. The meat were rectangular... More

We went to Trams to meet up with some folks going on a trip to Vietnam with us. The Pho was recommended and it was excellent. Likewise, the spring rolls were very fresh. The spicy prawns were not that spicy. The fish base was a little heavy. Tram's does not serve alcohol, but you can bring your own and they... More

Do not be put off by the appearance, the Pho is what brings you back, again and again. Not an extensive menu selection but it well worth the visit. Nice noodle selection, cannot comment, still have not tired of the Pho.

The dining room is not the most put together, but the pho is the best I've had. Our server was great! The food is authentic and so are the people who work here.

Stopped in for a quick lunch and I'm glad I did. I had the Saigon soup and spring rolls. Both were excellent and were very fresh. The soup came in a large bowl and along with the greens, had shrimp and sliced pork. The spring rolls were very fresh too. The soup came with a side of bamboo shoots. I'm... More

After reading reviews, my wife and I tried Tram's Kitchen in Lawrenceville. Very unassuming location, but the Pho is amazing. My wife had the spicy prawns and we both had egg rolls which were very good, The Pho however is one of the best things I have ever eaten. Mine was with mixed meat, but it was the broth that... More
