We stopped during a rain storm in Kauai. We had a friend who lived the island that took us. The first good sign was that we had to wait to be seated on a rainy afternoon. The food is authentic and tasty. The service is fast, but not intrusive. There is a diner-like atmosphere that is great. Most of the... More

Had to stop again on this vacation. Maybe I was too tired, but special saiman soup was good but not as great as memory serves me. This is one place I stop at once every trip to Kauai.

A pleasant surprise, great food. We were told about this place by another tourist. We like Pho and so we ventured out of the resort to try it. It was a great place to have Vietnamese food. Local police, firemen and other people were there in abundance so we knew we had found a great place. Lots of choices, and... More

We were craving Vienamese Pho, and found this place. Sooo happy that we did. We immediately felt comfortable and could not wait for our meals to come out. The Pho were all excellent, with great chili sauces on the table. The atmosphere is very local and family friendly. The owners were so nice and pleasant. We hope to go back... More

This is a place about the food and friendly service ! Yep a strip mall setting and nothing fancy but the food is delicious! The service is excellent. We had Pho ,noodle bowls, fried rice and fresh rolls. Perfect and priced right. If you are visiting and want better than resort food in a casual setting... This is it.

We tried this Vietnamese restaurant with a crave for a Asian food. It turned put to be a reasonably good one with reasonable price and fine taste. Its pho is quite good and we loved their vietnamese coffee with condense milk.

We ordered a house special fried rice, pho, crispy prawns and teriyaki chicken. All the items were really good. When you drive in to the strip mall, the place looks really shady. The restaurant is located between a laundromat and a bowling alley. We walked in on a Wednesday evening and the place was crowded. We decided to get our... More

Pho Kauai is a place you enjoy time after time! It is fast and consistent , the menu selection is great , including vegetarian, try the Vietnamese crepe ( you might have to asked for the kitchen to make it, often they say that it is not available! The owners and workers are hard working a take pride !

This is an eatery, not a romantic restaurant (just fyi). The food is super tasty, and the service prompt and nice. Nothing else to it. Just be sure to get the pho, as it is delicious.

Locals place located in a strip center with a bowling alley and laundromat, but it was well-lit and packed on a weekday evening. Good sign! We had the Pho, which was fine...it's Pho. Served with basil and bean sprouts. We did have to ask for spoons. Had a glass of iced tea which was very weak and not that good.... More
