All the food was wonderful. My one minor criticism, and it’s just my opinion, the food is just a slight bit complex. Too many ingredients. Like too much if a good thing. Of course we scarfed up every single bite of everything. The prices are very reasonable. Nice atmosphere. Dynamite server. I think it was Michael. Anyway, a big bear of a guy with a warm and friendly attitude. Loved the evening

Everything was delicious! We had the wings with caramel sauce and I had the chicken vindaloo bowl. I would definitely order both again!

Stopped in before floats in the oaks. Pleasantly surprised. Service was great. Food delicious. My chicken dish was reported as being spicy—and it was, but just right! Waiter was tops.

Upon arriving, we were quickly greeted and taken to our table. Our waitress was super friendly and helpful as we navigated the menu and placed orders for drinks, appetizer, and our entrees. In telling her that my date and I intended to split the two entrees we had selected, upon their delivery to the table we were so delighted that they had been split for us into separate dishes. This was so very thoughtful and helpful! The food was all very delicious and the drinks were tasty as well. Highly recommend!

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.
