Our waiter was outstanding....unfortunately I arrived a few minutes late so I do not know his name
My niece was recently diagnosed with ciliac disease and he was so knowledgeable and helpful with her choosing the right thing to order. Everything was delicious, my chicken and sweet potato waffles were awesome.

I am biased when it comes to this small eatery. The first of Michael Gulotta's growing culinary realm, it is my favorite. I dislike the term "Asian fusion", it reduces the innovative delicious dishes he creates. However, it is the best short description along with "delicious wings" and the best prepared tofu I have every eaten. Do not miss the whole roasted pig on the weekends!

Wonderful dining experience! We had the shrimp and grits and a duck sandwich split between two of us. Everything was excellent, both the cuisine and the service. We finished with an out of this world chocolate dessert with a miso caramel glaze. We will definitely be back. The only area where a slight improvement could be made is the ambiance but it would certainly not prevent me from returning to the restaurant.

This place is in a small strip mall and was about a 20 minute cab ride from our hotel - well worth the trip! Our waiter Devon was very helpful as we considered which dishes to order. We started with the fried oysters, which were exceptionally good. Then, we had the shrimp spring rolls - fat, succulent, and amazing. Best of all was the lamb in green curry with roti. It was wonderfully satisfying and I can’t wait to come back and have it again! We also went to MoPho ‘s sister restaurant Maypop, which was also a fabulous meal.

The fusion bun bo hue was way above its average price range . $24/bowl could buy you 2 bowls of authentic bun bo hue. The individual elements of the dish were all delicious on their own but not together. The broth was too rich, especially without the usual fresh and crunchy herbs. Kale was a bad choice to put in the broth, really did not do anything for me. The shrimps though tasty, did not go well with the rich, fatty broth. There was not nearly enough spices to make the broth more tasteful. BUT, on a different note, the aroma was incredibly authentic. I truly believe in sorcery now! The only 3 things familiar to me in the bowl were bean sprouts, some form of Vietnamese chả and the chewy noodles. Yet, the bowl smelled like home in a bowl. It was overall a commendable attempt to twist the dish though the balance of flavors could be improved.

The Red Beans and Rice Monday Special was great with the crispy rice cakes the highlight! Service was just right, not obtrusive but attentive. My lunch companion really enjoyed his Shrimp and Grits and the Crispy Brussels Sprouts never disappoint! We were having lunch to catch up after many years of living in different cities and did not feel rushed to give up our table.
I will be back to try other things and will not hesitate to bring friends and family for a great meal.

For my wife and I, it was the first that we went to a Vietnamese Restaurant. What a wonderful experience. Loved it. Mopho was extraordinary. Excellent food. Marvelous attention. Vietnamese and NOLA flavors: Perfect match. We highly recommend people to visit this outstanding restaurant. High marks. Next time when we visit NOLA, Mopho will be one of our favorite stop. Congratulations to the chef and the rest of the staff. Two Thumbs UP^^

Best regards

Yuma and Wilmer

Started off our New Orleans vacation with some of the best pho I’ve ever tasted. The broth was so rich and you can really tell it’s a labor of love going into it. Our server was wonderful, and informative. They also had an awesome happy hour going on while we were there. $1.50 beer, $5 wine, app specials... perfect
