    We totally enjoyed our dining experience at MoPho and probably left our server in stitches. All our dishes came out swiftly and were very flavorful… some of our table’s favorites were the boba teas, the poutine fries with laska curry, the crispy chicken wings and the hangover 2 pho.

    We had the grilled shrimp spring rolls (awesome), fried green beans (also awesome) and a chicken bowl (with coleslaw and cooked greens…don’t recall the name). It was very flavorful but I would have preferred more chicken and less breading. We will be back.

    We sat in the back courtyard, and were blanketed by termites before the end of our meal, which really killed the vibe. Pho was a mediocre twist on the authentic. Server was nice and helpful.

    I was in NOLA for a convention and wanted to dine among locals. Mo Pho is truly a neighborhood gem. The food is tasty and fulfilling, the staff is very accommodating, and the vibe is lively yet relaxing.

    The server was very nice but not quite attentive enough for me. I’m not saying she wasn’t attentive at all, just not quite enough for me. Also, the tables were sticky. Either the finish needs to be refreshed or go to table cloths. The table tops shouldn’t be sticky. It gives the perception that the tables are dirty when they definitely are not dirty.

    So glad to get the points for this dining experience. We had a reservation and drove all the way across the city to find them closed. It would have been nice to have been notified that they were planning to close without notice. So very disappointed.

    The food was amazing. So much flavor in every bite. I got the black eye pea and tofu dish, simply outstanding. Every item in the bowl packed a big punch of flavor. I hadn't been here in years, however, I will definitely be going more often. The menu is a bit cut down since covid, however, the quality of the food remains. Great selections to choose from as well. Already looking forward to my next visit. Thanks for good quality dishes.

    This restaurant was a big disappointment. Extremely mediocre food, except for a couple vegetable sides. I had like its sister restaurant, Maypop, so I was especially surprised how poor it was. Service was perfectly pleasant; atmosphere almost non-existant.

    A coworker told me about MOPHO. People, you need this in your belly! The Chicken Pho is oh so good. Fragrant, bold, but not overly powerful, yet refreshing, and very comforting. The shrimp and grits were outstanding, the wings are amazing, but that broth in the Pho…. Y’all need to get some of that in your life!

    Food was delicious, as always. The service was not up to par. We received our food before we received our drinks. However, we know that times are difficult, so we didn't let it affect our evening.
