    It was the worst service i can remember. They were not busy but our server hung out at the bar chatting with other staff. While I have worked in the service industry and am empathetic to the work, this was appalling. Additionally, when asked for cream with my coffee, he said he would see what they have but didn't think they had any. Almost at the end of our meal, after asking a third time for it, he brought some "cream product" used for the food. Clearly, i did not drink the coffee and was still charged $3 for it. When he asked if we needed boxes, i said i am fine but then he walked away when my guest was going to ask for one. His tone was rude and like we were not worth his time. I am so grateful for the culinary excellence of my city and all that make that possible, with the exception of this server and unfortunately now MoPho.

    Great food and drinks, the MoPho griddled chicken with the vindaloo sauce is spicy and delicious. The Dragon Lady drink was also fantastic, the only drawback is that is slow for everything, but not to the point that I would not come back, just takes awhile. Everyone I have brought has been very pleased.

    We came for an early dinner before a concert with a couple friends. They have really amazing cocktails so we enjoyed those until our friends got there to meet us/ running late. We tried a couple apps. My favorite were the chicken bites tossed in the spicy vindaloo sauce. We also got the yellow curry bites, crispy green beans, and a couple different spring rolls. Can’t wait to come back and try more things!

    I wanted to meet a friend for lunch. He was in the City Park area and MoPho has been on my list for years. I made my OpenTable reservation and was seated immediately upon entry. He was running late but the staff was graceful about it. We ordered the chicken pho (him) and beef pho (me). He said it was the most flavorful chicken pho he’s ever had and each piece of beef (comes with a variety) was delicious in mine. Great choice for solid service and delicious food.

    Decided to go here after savoring the food I’ve seen posted on Instagram. Was not disappointed! Cute place with lots of seating and staff. The flavors are on point with what I didn’t even know I needed! We had the nuoc mam caramel wings, the som tam salad, fried p&j oysters with a pickled blue cheese, and a fried hot vindaloo chicken sandwich all which were delicious.

    Mopho is a constant family favorite. I don't think we've ever had a bad meal here. The only time I'm ever upset is when they take something awesome off the menu, but usually it's replaced with something great.

    Loved the food! Bartender was knowledgeable and efficient. Service was great. Only negative on my first experience here was originally being seated next to the LOUD couple next to us. We had to move to the bar…they were YELLING…oblivious of anyone else in the restaurant.

    Seriously good food. Pho is incredible. Chicken wings are the best I’ve had. Service could have been a little better. Very nice waitstaff but not very attentive. Waited a while to order drinks, then waited again to order food and then had to seek them out to get the check. Did not mar the experience though - would go back again, without a doubt.

    I love this place so much. The variety or flavors, dishes, and drinks are almost unbeatable. Everything we ate was phenomenal. The coconut milk queso was surprisingly unique and delicious (pour over the poutine 🤌🏼). The fried greens beans have an incredibly delicious and kinda spicy sauce and they are still crispy while still cooked. The chicken pho didn’t disappoint and the Sunday special of Poutine (fancy steak fries) with a sauce that I can’t even describe was mouth watering. 10/10, five stars, would recommend for any occasion.

    We totally enjoyed our dining experience at MoPho and probably left our server in stitches. All our dishes came out swiftly and were very flavorful… some of our table’s favorites were the boba teas, the poutine fries with laska curry, the crispy chicken wings and the hangover 2 pho.

    We had the grilled shrimp spring rolls (awesome), fried green beans (also awesome) and a chicken bowl (with coleslaw and cooked greens…don’t recall the name). It was very flavorful but I would have preferred more chicken and less breading. We will be back.

    We sat in the back courtyard, and were blanketed by termites before the end of our meal, which really killed the vibe. Pho was a mediocre twist on the authentic. Server was nice and helpful.

    The server was very nice but not quite attentive enough for me. I’m not saying she wasn’t attentive at all, just not quite enough for me. Also, the tables were sticky. Either the finish needs to be refreshed or go to table cloths. The table tops shouldn’t be sticky. It gives the perception that the tables are dirty when they definitely are not dirty.
