Pho 777 Vietnamese Restaurant
The place is so small that you have to wait on the sidewalk for a table. Downtown businesspeople do not mind the wait, and neither will you once you have tasted the food. The menu remains the same from opening to closing. The servings are large, tasty and inexpensive. A popular pick is Pork and Flame-broiled Shrimp with vermicelli and vegetables. The Beef and Shrimp with vegetables and rice is a filling meal. Beverages include hot or iced green tea, lemonade and coffee.
i had a food review assignment in my college english class and lets just say that i love phos so much i decided to do my review there just so i could go back like 5 times in a month! its a cheap place to eat and i deffinately love theie food. my favorite is the #26 bbq beef w/ rice. sooo good. i introduce my friends to this place all the time, haha none of them disliked it yet! so as far as that goes, i really dont think that anyone could hate the food... unless they are stuck up like the last person that wrote a bad review... too salty my a--. theres something for everyone. just check it out youll know what i mean!
periodically for ten years stopping in this place, the service is always slow and poor. spring rolls never taste freshly made. old and dry, and what they serve for peanut sauce should be considered mystery sauce with no hint of peanuts. quanity varies on every visit along with quality.look in the kitchen, cleanliness is not what you think of. there are better restrauants in town.
They are popular, but they don't have a busboy, so it can take forever to get seated. That would be get seated at a table with a bunch of dishes on it from the previous patron. You might be sitting for 15 minutes before you get your table cleaned, and you might not get menus at that time.
All in all, I dined alone and got there before noon, but still had to deal with dirty dishes, slow help, and a surely waiter. The lemongrass chicken was ok, although the rice was dried out (heatlamp?)
I eat fast, but I was still there for 55 minutes, which is stupid when they have people waiting for tables.
Need a busboy, a sponge, and an attitude adjustment.
This is not the third best restaurant in Reno. We thought it was after viewing the reviews in yahoo. The spring rolls were decent. Otherwise, the noodles was under-cooked and the food was not as good as other Vietnamese restaurants we have been to. Service was good and price was right but not the food!
The worst restaurant in Reno. I went there once and that will be the last time there. The service was horrible. It took a long time to get our order taken. Once our order was taken a very long wait for our food. While waiting where we were sitting we could see inside the kitchen. It was the dirtiest kitchen that i have ever seen. With dishes on the floor, food everywhere with people walking on it. Then while waiting for our food we saw a mouse run accross the kitchen. I ordered noodles that were suppose to have pork and shrimp. When I got my food there was no shrimp. I did not say anything. Then another angry customer said something about his food not having shrimp and was told that they were out of shrimp. Shouldn't they tell you that when you order? After about three bites of my food which was ok but i couldnt get the mouse of my mind while eating it, probally because my friend kept reffering to the pork as mouse. We then saw another mouse run accross the restaurant and then we were done. I asked the waiter for my bill and he didnt bring it. Like 10 minutes later i asked again and told him that we were ready to leave. Still we did not get the bill. I went to the cash register and nobody would help beceause they could not find my bill. I was paying for my meal with my card. I only had $10 in cash on me. I left the $10 for my $13 meal and left. Do not ever eat at this place. I am not a type of person to complain about something but you can only take so much.
I love Pho, and to be honest I really don't know anyone who has tried this addictive Vietnamese dish that doesn’t share the same feelings, so it was only natural that when I saw an advertisement for Pho 777 at the national bowling stadium to give it a shot. The moment you get in the door you will be greeted to a dining room with your average Asian decor and a wide array of seating to fit just about any size party, but I warn you not to look too closely as you might take a glance into one of the dirtiest kitchens (that I found graciously opened up to the world through a door held open by an open container of Clorox) you may very well ever see. That being seen I was a little hesitant in ordering, but having made the trip downtown I wouldn’t want to waste my time getting there so I quietly looked away and placed my order, Spring rolls and a bowl of rare beef pho (Pho Thi). The Spring rolls were given to me about two minutes later suggesting that they may be pre-made, however it was quite irrelevant given the quality, looking at them you can tell the great quality of ingredients in these spring rolls, the shrimp were huge, the pork was plentiful, and the roll itself was still crisp and fresh as if in perfect proportion with the vegetables inside, truly these are one of, if not the, single greatest spring rolls you will ever find within the Reno/Sparks area, after enjoying these little jewels I was undoubtedly ready to put my fears aside from looking in the kitchen and ready for my Pho which came a little while after I finished the rolls. The bowl of Pho that was presented to me looked like your normal run of the mill Pho with one very noticeable exception, the clarity of the broth, what was called pho literally looked like beef, noodles and green onion in a bowl of hot water, but upon taste I noticed that...it wasn’t that far off, the broth was almost void of all but a salty finish, the beef and noodles were both of fair quality however good Pho is all about the quality of the broth, and that is something that the Pho at 777 lacks, so much so that it is probably the least enjoyable bowl of Pho in the city, which is truly a shame after the great quality of the spring roll. After flavoring the salt water soup with some table condiments I finished the noodles and beef, paid and the register and left disappointed. Spring rolls aside I found no reason to go back to Pho 777, the service was short and simi-sweet (two trips to drop off food, which is expected in a fast pace, cheap Vietnamese restaurant), the dining room was clean and spacious but the kitchen is filthy with dishes on the ground next to trash cans and open chemical containers holding doors, and the pho lacks flavor (other then the above mentioned salty finish) craftmanship, or care which is a shame considering how awesome there spring rolls are.
