Food is consistently good. Those wings and string bean apps are a must. Keep up the good work. Mopho gave back to community during hurricane ida so support this wonderful place and its staff

Went for dinner with the family. Love the wings, truly some of the best you’ll ever taste. I got the beef special excellent, my wife a shrimp and grits plate. Unfortunately the grits were cold. She asked to return the plate. The waitress was very apologetic took the plate and came back several minutes later with cold grits.
We’ve eaten here numerous of times and this is truly the first time we’ve been a bad meal.

They seemed a bit short staffed. We waited an unusually long time to be seated and for the waitress to first approach. I tried the Burmese pork curry spring rolls and cucumbers which were pretty good. However I was grossly underwhelmed with the chicken drumsticks and my husbands shrimp po mi. The drumsticks were lacking in flavor and the po-mi, which was supposed to be a combination po boy and bahn mi, was a bahn mi with the smallest shrimp I’ve ever seen used for a sandwich. Shrimp repeatedly fell out of his sandwich. I was not impressed and would not return to this establishment.

Due to the reduced menu, we each (3 patrons) got the beef pho. The meatballs were over-seasoned on this trip in comparison t previous trips. The waiter was nice and on top of helping us with our service needs. Other than the reduced menu items available, I did not feel my eating experience reduced from COVID cutbacks.

Just a dinner with three friends, the food was phenomenal although they were out of j gradients for several cocktails. Would 10/10 recommend going just for the food.

Stuck to spring rolls, ordered 4 different ones. They were as big as burritos, ended up taking 2 home for eating later. Kyle was our server, pleasant, attentive & welcoming.

Good food but the plates came out in an odd order. The waitress was very kind but forgot to put in our appetizer order. She informed us of this and we still opted to go ahead and order it because we wanted to try it. The food was good but I expected better having been to Maypop their sister restaurant.

Had reservation.
Still had to wait over 30 Mn and only got a table when I complained. There were numerous open tables but they said they were going to put them together for a large 7:30 reservation, so we were just left to wait.

I was excited to try the food but we were both underwhelmed.
Wait staff were really great though!

I ordered the drink with mescal but they didn’t have the cocktail.
How. An u not have your signature cocktail?

Anyway, super disappointed , would never go back.

Nice place, fantastic waite staff, and dragon lady drink superb! Blood Mary drinks were bland. Fried P & J oyster appetizer was full of flavor overload that masked the oysters instead of compliment. Pho was tasty but add ins were lean. Overall food was decent.

Everything was good. This was just the right blend of Vietnamese meeting southern comfort cuisine. It just felt a bit chilly, so I’d recommend bringing a light jacket.

We had reservations and no table was available when we arrived. After being seated, we waited 10 or more minutes before we spoke to our waitress. Our food took no time at all to arrive but they got they order wrong. The drinks were slow to arrive, water glasses never filled during our dinner. The food was not bad but nothing to rave over. We are not planning on going back and would not recommend this restaurant

1st time going to MoPho in a while and gotta say, I could have let it be a lot longer between visits. Service was great, honestly a really amazing server, BUT the food was NOT. The salad was SO overly spicy I couldnt eat it (I sent it back and ended up eating a bowl of VERY dry rice with wing sauce), wings were chewy, and the spring rolls were soggy. And the bill for 4 people was $120! Terrible

The food was very delicious! I had the spring rolls, green beans & the Hangover II pho soup. The server was nice, but overall, the service was very very slow -- especially to get any of our drinks. I would recommend the restaurant though.

The pho wasn’t pho. It was more like ramen with the pho noodles. My pork pho was disgusting and greasy and the beef pho my boyfriend ate was chewy. The spring rolls were utterly delicious but not worth the price. Wings were good too. But I was looking for pho and was very disappointed. Staff were really nice.
