MOPHO strives to be a true neighborhood restaurant, combining the flavors of Southeast Louisiana and Southeast Asia. From rich pho broths, to hand ground curries, and our signature bubble tea cocktails; everything at MOPHO is made from scratch with care and attention to freshness and flavor. We also serve whole roasted hog brushed with lemongrass, garlic, and chiles every Saturday for lunch.
In 2014, MOPHO was nominated as one of Bon Appetit's Top 50 Best New Restaurants. It was also named Restaurant of the Year by New Orleans Magazine and People's Choice Best New Restaurant by Gambit Magazine in 2014.

                                            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.

                                            The service was excellent. Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the food. Food was very good just a little steep for what you got. Very few shrimp in the shrimp and grits meal.

                                            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.

                                            Great food marred by sub par service. Too many good places in Nola for me to want to go back again.

                                            Very good, creative takes on Vietnamese staples. Loved the fried green beans, and the Pho is always so good!

                                            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.

                                            Sadly, I can’t really rate the food, etc, because we didn’t get to eat there. They’d closed bc of a Covid concern, which I totally appreciate. What I didn’t appreciate was that there was no notification to us that they were closed. So, after following their advice to take the street car to city park and then stroll through city park to the restaurant, we arrived, really hungry, to find them closed.

                                            We came here on a recommendation from Harriet from New Orleans School of Cooking and we were not disappointed. The Crispy Green Beans were delicious, as were the drumsticks. The Nuoc Mam Caramel sauce was delicious! The food came out quickly and was hot! Definitely recommend!

                                            Need more fresh menu items. After I had the poutine appetizer, I didn’t want another fried dish for dinner.

                                            We ate a celebratory meal, I had the shrimp, coconut, and grits bowl while Sparkles had the roasted pork belly bowl, both were scrumptious. We started the meal with an order of the absolutely delicious crispy chicken wings with a layer of lemongrass, ginger, & chili seasoning over them, plenty for two.
