I don't just love MoPho, I crave it. The food is outstandingly consistent. Our server, Michael was amazing. Possibly one of the best ones I've had...ever. He was attentive without being annoying. Had great suggestions and described each dish perfectly.

If you have to leave the restaurant to go grab something to eat then even a cheap dinner is overpriced. I hope it was just an off night because pho broth was awful.

Each of our party of 4 enjoyed their meals. The server helped to ensure that the one member of our party with a food allergy was accommodated. We did request an table outside yet we were seated inside where the AC was working so we needed to grab a sweater to be comfortable indoors.

We skipped starters, and the two of us shared three mains. It was so good that I'm still thinking about my good life choices a day later

Don’t let the strip mall location fool you, food was delicious. New take on Vietnamese fusion, was happily surprised. If you don’t expect to see traditional pho here, you’ll be delighted too.

Enjoyed the shrimp poboy and chicken noodles bowl both with the glazed nuoc mam. We also shared the flash fried green beans , recommended by our server Paul. Delicious and unique. This is a casual spot near City Park, with an outdoor patio and a full bar. We loved the spice level and one of a kind menu options from this inventive chef. If you can, try MayPop, the upscale restaurant from the same chef. Terrific!

Our last few experiences have been a disappointment. Mopho was our favorite go to place up until covid. We keep supporting it knowing how hard Michael has worked to stay open and support his staff but the quality of the food and selection has declined. We will continue to go while it works to come back to a 5 star restaurant.

My husband and I were site seeing at the City Park and was very hungry and thirsty. We saw Mopho on Yelp and decided to try it. The food was great and our waiter took good care of us. The restaurant was clean and well air conditioned. We really enjoyed our lunch

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.

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.
