The service was fabulous, and the atmosphere was really nice however we were disappointed with the food. The chicken appetizer was over fried and dry… The special beef dish was chewy and tough and slightly overcooked and the vegetable bowl lacked flavor. :(

Always a pleasure to eat here. I've missed it. I also very much so appreciate the open ventilation of the back area in this time of Covid.

I had beef pho that tasted basically like water. Never had to ask for soy sauce before (just to give it salt!). No beef broth flavor, no spices, nada.
And it was so good here when I last visited Nola in 2019!

What a great place!!! From the service to the food you can’t get any better! The MoPho punch was delicious and fruity! We got the cucumber appetizer which was delicious then I got the Black Eye Pea Curry and my husband got the Vindaloo chicken! Both were fabulous!! The balance of flavors and spice were on point! This place is a 10 in my book!

We sat outside on the patio and it was delightful! Fans kept it cool. Tables were well spaced, servers wore masks. The food and beverages were outstanding, as usual. Service with a smile (I could tell even with masks!) and attentive! Look forward to next visit.

Not my first meal there. Everything was delicious. It is a very special place. Kinda reduced ambiance because of the Virus and the low table count. I’ll be back and you should go too.

MoPho never disappoints and during the Covid, they've got you covered. Tables are stationed 6 feet apart, they servers are respectful, they have great beer on tap and the food is out of this world. They have a limited menu but you can get your fix, shrimp po-boy, chicken or pork pho to name a few. Great place; we'll be back.

Delicious food. Jalapenos in the bowls were huge though. I'm super picky about peppers in dishes and prefer them sliced thin so you get the heat without straight up murdering your mouth. Spicy pickled cucumbers are legit.

Chef Mike’s ingenious touch with combining oriental and Creole flavors is unmatched. I don’t want to use the Fusion word because his touch is WAY beyond that . You won’t get this anywhere else and you will always regret not experiencing it. Service was awesome.

This was my first visit to MoPhon and I had a great time. Everyone was friendly. One thing that I found intriguing is that there was a communal vibe; their was a lot of guest to guest interaction. The food was fresh, hot, and prompt! We had the pleasure of being waited on by Gavin. He was attentive, full of personality, well versed with the menu and spoke highly of every dish. Definitely will return.
