    Pho was served cold and lacked any real flavor. Herbs and lime were prepackaged in a little bag.

    I wanted to meet a friend for lunch. He was in the City Park area and MoPho has been on my list for years. I made my OpenTable reservation and was seated immediately upon entry. He was running late but the staff was graceful about it. We ordered the chicken pho (him) and beef pho (me). He said it was the most flavorful chicken pho he’s ever had and each piece of beef (comes with a variety) was delicious in mine. Great choice for solid service and delicious food.

    Chicken pho on a cold day? What could be better. Maybe start with spring rolls (which we did). I love this place.

    Decided to go here after savoring the food I’ve seen posted on Instagram. Was not disappointed! Cute place with lots of seating and staff. The flavors are on point with what I didn’t even know I needed! We had the nuoc mam caramel wings, the som tam salad, fried p&j oysters with a pickled blue cheese, and a fried hot vindaloo chicken sandwich all which were delicious.

    Mopho is a constant family favorite. I don't think we've ever had a bad meal here. The only time I'm ever upset is when they take something awesome off the menu, but usually it's replaced with something great.

    Loved the food! Bartender was knowledgeable and efficient. Service was great. Only negative on my first experience here was originally being seated next to the LOUD couple next to us. We had to move to the bar…they were YELLING…oblivious of anyone else in the restaurant.

    Seriously good food. Pho is incredible. Chicken wings are the best I’ve had. Service could have been a little better. Very nice waitstaff but not very attentive. Waited a while to order drinks, then waited again to order food and then had to seek them out to get the check. Did not mar the experience though - would go back again, without a doubt.

    I love this place so much. The variety or flavors, dishes, and drinks are almost unbeatable. Everything we ate was phenomenal. The coconut milk queso was surprisingly unique and delicious (pour over the poutine 🤌🏼). The fried greens beans have an incredibly delicious and kinda spicy sauce and they are still crispy while still cooked. The chicken pho didn’t disappoint and the Sunday special of Poutine (fancy steak fries) with a sauce that I can’t even describe was mouth watering. 10/10, five stars, would recommend for any occasion.

    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.

    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.
