Food was too salty. It's nice to sometimes get away from traditional, but "kale" in vermicelli? No thanks. The pork was big and chunky, I prefer thin slices. We waited too long for our appetizer, and had to remind our waiter who seemed to have not put in the order. Over priced...

Chicken was undercooked and gave me a stomachache. Pho is very salty and pork belly is not tender. Would not recommend at all.

We really enjoyed this place. The waitstaff were all super friendly and attentive. The food is outstanding and unique. You will not find anything like this anywhere else. It was a fun night. Highly recommend the lemongrass ice cream cakes... trust me on this.

Went for Coolinary Month. Their wings are some of the best in the city. The lamb curry was insanely good. I recommend their gin drinks as well.

Excellent food. Interesting blending of spices and texture. We preferred apps and entrees. All different and fantastic.
Is the chef Asian or American? I know he spent time in Hanoi.

Sometimes you're lucky to find a restaurant where it's hard to find the words to truly describe the deliciousness of the food!! MoPho would be that kinda place. The flavors are intense, rich, spicy and perfectly combined to form the most scrumptious, palate-pleasing dishes! We dined on Vindaloo Bites, Spring Rolls (best I've ever eaten), curried lamb and Corn and Crab Laksa--all absolutely divine!!

I love MoPho. On my recent visit, I ordered the Monday special which was red beans and rice — a very unconventional version. It was delicious and I will go back on a Monday to order it again.
Overall a great experience.

We started with the wing appetizer. Delish!
Two of us had the pork spring rolls; two had the pork sandwiches. Both were very good!

We enjoyed the food so much! As it was a Saturday we were able to enjoy their slow cooked pork as well as their wings and shrimp. The delicious spring rolls were very fresh and satisfying and much larger than the fried version.
We had s delicious lunch.

This was the third time I’ve introduced a friend to MoPho and had the same reaction, delight! The creative eclectic menu and the friendly service never disappoints. Whether I’m with my vegan daughter or carnivore-loving friends, the crispy Brussels sprouts are always a favorite! Pho, oysters, red beans and crispy rice, I have praise for all.

Amazing flavors in every bite. Already wanting to return to try something new on this wonderfully creative menu. Don't skip on the cocktails or booba teas! Appetizers are large enough for sharing and or as a full meal. The wait staff is helpful and very informed about specials and what's in every dish.

Service came around several times to refresh the items on the table - silverware, paper towels, chopsticks - while we were eating. Not for our benefit, but to get the table situated for future diners.
Also, we were three and were sharing and had asked for a sandwich to be cut in thirds rather than half, and rather than being told no at the time, the sandwich came to the table, we told the person setting down we had requested it in thirds and could they now cut each half into three, he took it away, but was intercepted by the waitress and the sandwich brought back to us saying, no they couldn't possibly cut the sandwich in thirds for us. That "they" (who? the chef?) are particular about the presentation. Well, they presented a face that the food is more 'precious' than the requests of the clientele. It's not like the sandwich didn't then get cut with a dull knife at the table by us. It was an unnecessary annoyance and leaves one wondering why.
Their version of red beans and rice was very nice.

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.
