    Food & service are terrific. It's great comfort food! It's not Americanized, so the servers are not going to check up on you. But are quick & friendly if you wave them down for what you need.

    Pho 888 is not only reasonably priced but offers up some of the best Pho I've had in North America, and it's BYOB to boot. Read more

    Combination fried rice is a must have. I like subbing extra Chinese sausage in place of shrimp.

    Pho special is actually really large portions. Really good. Venue is low key and simple but food is pretty decent

    but when Americans come in the restaurant she's all up in their face. I'm a good tipper..20% unless you do an awful job, so I think it's rude that she treats non Asian better thinking get better tips?

    Hate leaving bad reviews but the service here sucks! We sat staring into space for 20 min(only one other table) before taking our order. Never came to check up also didn't bring us what we asked for.

    Pho is okay. Service is lame. The broth is a bit odd, it tastes like they use a lot of spice and herbs in it.
