We went to MoPho to try their Pho and it was very good. We had the Hangover and the MoPho dishes. We both enjoyed but prefer a more traditional Pho. The spring rolls were excellent and service was excellent. However, the restaurant was very cold. When a neighboring table asked for the air to be adjusted, they were told that they could not do that. Will most certainly go back and try something else, especially the chicken dishes. Bring a jacket!

I probably had too high of expectations. Food was okay, in fact one diner had to sends her’s back it was so bad. Food was not very satisfying. Service however, was excellent.

Our Server Mike was almost as amazing as the food :) Food was spectacular. Brunch dish of pumpkin curry was amazing, green beans and so was dessert. Can wait to try the Chicken and waffles.

Made my reservation months in advance and reconfirmed by text reply. When we got there early the host didn’t have our reservation but sat us anyway as there was only a couple of other people in the place. Waiter was phenomenal and knowledgeable about the menu and specials and did a fantastic job. But as the place filled with people very quickly to capacity, our food took a long time getting to us and many other tables who had arrived after us were served and finished their meals before we even got our appetizer. Fortunately we weren’t in a huge rush and enjoyed visiting with our friends. Food was good, and we will return to give them another shot and to try some of the other dishes on the menu. Best advice is make your res, get there early and don’t Br in a hurry.

It was for a birthday dinner. Our original plans were canceled due to a power outage at the other restaurant and we were actually very happy in the end because we found a new little place! Best pho I’ve ever had and my husband really enjoyed his vermicelli bowl.

The best part was our waiter, Jude. He was the friendliest, most knowledgeable waiter that we have ever had. We didn’t feel like a burden when we asked questions and he explained things perfectly. He was really great.

Another great dining experience. Food was incredible yet again. Went with another couple who had never been and they really enjoyed it. Everyone had the special which was a lamb curry with the exception of myself. I ordered a pork dish. My only complaint was that there was really only one small piece of pork an a lot of veggies but everything was really delicious!

The veggie broth pho with the pork belly and poached egg was the best. The bowls are plentiful and it's a lot of food. My friend made her own with meatballs and when she cut into them they were bloody and messed up the taste of her broth. The veggie bowl was also not a hit for our vegetarian friend though she said the tofu was really good. 2/3 dishes were not that great. But the one dish that was good was exceptional.

My only complaint was that i was freezing! I noticed a patron next to me go out to the car to get a sweater, i unfortunately did not have one with me. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and they were able to describe the dishes so specifically that when the food arrived, it was exactly how it was described! How often does that ever happen? We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will definitely be back.

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.

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!
