Fabulous flavor and ample portions. Our server, Andrew, was five star and the chef’s skills were very evident in the complexity of flavors in our dishes. A casual, neighborhood type place that we will return to when we are back in NOLA. We enjoyed the crispy Thai wings, chicken and waffle and the pork belly bowl.

I went to MoPho with friends for brunch and we had a great time. It was a beautiful day so the outdoor seating was perfect. I got the black eyed pea bowl with tofu, roasted greens, and jasmine rice! OMG so good.

The food and service was outstanding. Our table was unfortunalty sat rather close to another table. We were not bothered by this but the couple we sat next to were horrendously rude. They used profanity and spoke about our callousness by not waiting for another table. We allegedly ruined their evening by being sat so close to them. It made my experience eating there a bit stressful and uncomfortable. Other than this rude couple we had a really great time!

Multiple trips here now have made this a New Orleans area staple for us and we see no reason this will not continue going forward.

Inventive and tasty fare from drinks to entree. Service is snappy and peppy. Fresh rolls and crispy wings are great starts and the clams in curry I had this trip were fabufoodulous. (I made that up). The pho was also dynamite in a bowl.

The Portlandia dude next to us was entertaining and Bama rocked LSU again on our visit so all was right in the culinary universe for us.

Return is guaranteed.

We had wonderful meals here . The food was delicious and though the new fusion food was welcomed we found that the excessive use of kale rendered the dishes to be a little bitter. When we removed the kale everything tasted better. We love eating kale but not in everything. The waiter was exceptional as we were an exacting group and he accommodated our many wishes. We shared the meals so that we could try everything and we had meals divided when 2 people wanted to share one dish. To enjoy the food here come in with an open mind and you will love it.

Great experience! We waited maybe less than 5 min for our 7:15 reservation, and they brought us some delicious marinated cucumbers as a thank you. Oysters and Wings were on point, as always. Clams were great, although the beignets were a little bit burnt. No worries, cause still delicious. Everyone loved their Pho, as well. Service was excellent and can’t wait to come back!

I love this restaurant. The dishes are flavorful and well thought out. Cocktail menu is great. I had the Dragon Lady and it was spicy but not too hot on the tongue. Had the special (sheep's head) and it was flaky and delicious. Wait staff is super helpful and loved her recommendations.

Our service was phenomenal. The waitress started by asking if anyone in the group has food allergies or dietary restrictions (none did). We asked her opinion of certain dishes and she gave us genuine answers. The cocktails were delicious and well balanced, the food was absolutely amazing! The tofu vindaloo was outstanding...spicy and full of flavor without being overpowering. The Som Tam salad was sweet with mango and salty with fish sauce, and our friend raved about the roast duck Po-Mi. I have to recommend the Pho. The broth had deep, rich flavors that can only come from using the proper ingredients and cooking for a long time. GO TO MOPHO!!!

MoPho is a favorite to be sure. But this evening was to make certain that our out-of-town guest got her own return visit; & MoPho did not disappoint. The crisy fried oysters, the wings, & the fried green tomatoes were the hits of the night. We will return again soon.

It was setup nice outside, but the fan didn't help because it was pointed at the roof of the building. The food was decent but that was about it. Service was great and staff very friendly.

The Pho was weak in flavor and the spring rolls fell apart when we were trying to eat them.

A cozy, warmly decorated interior of an unassuming interior. Pho has a Louisiana twist, and there are friendly veggie options. We were both in awe of how good the broth tasted on its own. We didn't drink, but there was a solid looking beer and cocktail selection. The best Vietnamese I've tried in New Orleans so far.
