Not authentic Vietnamese dishes... but it draws a good crowd so perhaps go more for the social and less for the food.

Initially this was not the best experience; we were basically ignored at the host stand for quite a while, and then a server finally gave us a cursory “someone will be right with you” and walked away. Once seated however the service was very good and the meal delicious. Management would be smart to review their customer greeting procedures with the staff...

Nice open indoor casual dining with outdoor patio seating area. Good Vietnamese fusion food. Liked the crispy egg rolls, fried chicken, Saigon noodles and summer rolls. Will need to try their pho. Great friendly service.

If you enjoy spicy Asian fusion you will I’ve this restaurant.
They have a separate menu just for pho and another for spring rolls on top of the traditional items. The food and service is excellent but the spice is not for the timid.

We were hoping for great Vietnamese, but this was fusion that lost its way conforming to American standards. We tried Bun (noodle bowl). The barbecued meat was thick and not grilled like traditional cooking and the portion was double the appropriate amount. It tasted okay but was plain compared to a true Vietnamese shish-kabob barbecue. Noodles were not vermicelli but were thick and disappointingly cold. Vegetables were good, but lettuce was added. All told this place was a disappointment having lost key values of Vietnamese cooking.

This is a must when we are in Palm Springs. The food is tasty, full of flavor, and portions are perfectly sized. They may seem small but you leave feeling full. Definitely try the Meatball martini appetizer. It's dynamite.

Was one of the first customers @ Pho 533 before the original owner sold, and have supported this space till now. Other's seated after us served first, Pad Thai was dry and a sticky glob. Sadly- I'm done! Always happens - eventually, when out of town ownership seems to only be in the Desert market for a profit!

Awesome staff. The food was very good. I have a shellfish allergy which removed many options for ordering. The cocktail list didn’t draw me in. My Paloma wasn’t good. For beer selections I would have preferred more traditional imports like Singha/Tiger Beer, Tsing Tao, Kirin Amber, Sapporo, etc. or Hot Sake. This place needed “signature cocktail” like an unbeatable MaiTai or a refreshing “Chuhai” (Sochu Highball of Sochu, soda, and sweet lime syrup).

I liked that I could order Pad Thai without seafood. The curry interested me, but I was warned it is very spicy (hot). The spring rolls were well crafted and didn’t fall apart. The dipping sauces were a bit too thin for me, and the dipping sauce container was too narrow to actually “dip” into. The pork based spring roll was our favorite.

If someone has trepidation around Asian cuisine and only likes “familiar foods” the choices are limited. I would not take strangers or picky eaters.

Again, the service was very, very, friendly and attentive. The food presentation was well done. Portions were adequate, but I expected slightly larger for the price, but it was plenty.

I would go back. I think it’s a place that gets better with familiarity and knowing what to expect.

This refreshing oasis in the desert is an experience not to be missed. Unique and diverse offerings of superb flavor combinations keep the palate anticipating the next taste. From the comfortable seating options (indoor and patio); the superior service staff; the spectacular array of adult libations; and the adventurous menu, this was a Class A experience from check in to departure. Our group of 6 (three couples) could not stop talking about the phenomenal meal that we shared at this incredible dining establishment. Pro Tip: Order the Lemon Drop - it compliments almost everything on the menu and will keep you smiling for the duration of the evening.

Great food and Service. Sat on the Patio. However had reservations at 7 and around 8:30 Hostess was pushing to clear the patio even though the restaurant does not close until 10. A bit disappointed given there was no need for tables and are party was enjoying after dinner cocktails and conversation.
