Fodor's Review

This spacious, minimalist restaurant is the trendiest of the three Pho Van locations in Portland—the others are on the far-east side, on Hawthorne Boulevard and 82nd Avenue. While many menu items are tasty, the big bowl of pho (noodle soup) is delicious, enough to fill you up, and costs only $8 or $9. The friendly waitstaff will help you work your way through the menu, and can make suggestions to give you the best sampling of Vietnamese cuisine.

Hard not to love this place

First rate Vietnamese cuisine in a tasteful setting in the heart of the Pearl--and the prices are SO not the Pearl district, thankfully. Now, if only they were open Sunday nights. What's with that? A great bargain nonetheless.

Terrific food, cool place

The food here was awesome. We had the carmelized pork, lemongrass seafood soup, and pomelo salad, and everything was amazing (especially the pork). The atmosphere's very nice, too: not touristy, but laid back and casual with fairly hip decor.

Biigest Soup Bowl I ever saw

Huge bowl of fresh steaming chicken soup. Most delicate crisp fresh spring rolls ever tasted, and the dip-it sauce.. mmm mmm yum. Great price too.
