Very nice atmosphere. Clean. Was steadily busy throughout our dining visit. Service was constant, pleaseant, and very quick. Everyone spoke english. And the pho was fantastic. I was thoroughly pleased. Im only giving it a 4 star because i havent tried and other dishes yet. And the chopsticks were wooden disposable ones... convenient for clean up.. but takes away from dining experience.
A friend and I stopped in one evening to try out one of the many Pho/Vietnamese restaurants on and around Mills Ave. We each started out with an appetizer. I chose the vegetable summer rolls and my friend got the roasted Quails. My summer rolls were very good! There was an Asian hot sauce at the table that paired nicely with the summer rolls. All around fresh & delicious! The roasted quails came out and they looked fairly good. I tried one of the little birds and what it was like eating a chicken. The flavor profile was okay, but I found myself using a lot of the hot sauce. Entree: I chose a Vermicelli with spicy vegetables and shrimp! Overall, it was amazing and I would absolutely get it again. The Vermicelli was cooked correctly and the dish flavoring was exactly what I was looking for. All in all, the service was pretty good and the venue had a mostly younger crowd. The food was what I was looking for and I intend to return again someday!
I haven't eaten anywhere recently that I was terribly excited about. Until work took me to Florida - boom! Good gracious, can we say, 4 to 5 star reviewed mom-and-pop paradise!? Of course I would land in sunny Florida, but still with the chill of Cincinnati in my bones. I wanted to hunt down a bowl of phó for dinner. A search on my trusty Yelp app turned up so many options, however, I really wanted to try Phó 88. Mind you, I have no sense of direction, no memory for giving directions, so all I can say is my GPS took me through a winding, cramped row of buildings, with not a national chain restaurant in sight. All of the signs were in Vietnamese, and I was quite excited about what I would find. A good thing about the restaurant as well, is that there was plenty of free parking in the back. And I was thrilled by the interior - it was so big, airy, clean and well lit. I even checked out the restroom, and it was spotless as well. I ordered a bowl of the phó tai and was promptly served a huge bowl of deliciousness loaded with as many noodles as my little heart would've desired, with plenty of tender, thinly sliced beef, and hearty garnishes. Everything was fresh, delicious - hot soup and crisp, cool garnishes, yum. The service was very fast and friendly, my food was so cheap (only $8), that I had unwittingly failed to spend the $10 minimum for credit card charges. The staff was very friendly and quick to understand, and there was not an issue at all. I will definitely be back here for a victory lap.
Very good, well-seasoned, flavorful broths are their specialty, but the entire menu is both intriguing and enjoyable. Feel free to ask them to bump up the heat, if that's your thing. The banh mi are both amazingly tasty and ridiculously inexpensive. The portions are excellent, and the staff very helpful at sorting though the menu. Their suggestions are with listening... More
I had beef noodle soup and vietnamese rice with grilled pork and egg. The food tastes okay to me. The thing I like the most about Pho88 is the service ( quick and friendly, clean and big, also with restroom is nice) If you go to Pho AnhHong on the other corner, you can tell the differences between two.
