Liu and her family came to the US from Hue, Vietnam. Although located in a quiet strip mall on Mayport Road, entering Pho Viet is like stepping into the old imperial city. Almost all of the staff are family members. All of the recipes are authentic and use only the freshest ingredients. The decor is simple, but real. The food is exceptional and very reasonably priced. Try #6, the Vietnamese dumplings, and any of the Phos. The chicken and beef stocks are homemade and uniquely flavorful. Plenty of vegetarian options.
