If you are looking for a restaurant with bad food at high prices And very unprofessional servers ... this is the place to come. We brought these concerns to the manager last year and they have not been resolved. The issues gave only become worse. Save your money and time and go else where.
I love this place. Small, not much as far as decor, but the staff is very efficient and refill your drinks without you having to flag them down. They bring you your check near the end of the meal. They must be accustomed to a lunch crowd watching the clock. Most important the PHO is delicious and addictive. The bowl is huge. As you would expect, it is very filling, but you don't feel bloated as with a fatty meal. I highly, highly recommend it.
Although the restaurant is pretty small, there are plenty of served tables outside of the restaurant. This may not be useful on cold or rainy days, it's great for warm days. Their pho is authentic and delicious. All the dishes are reasonably priced. I'm new in Irvine and haven't been to too many Vietnamese restaurants around here, but I think this place will be my regular lunch place.
good place to eat. the food is lovely. HOWEVER, my experience was RUINED when i was told there was a minimum purchase on the credit cards. i even checked if it was legal to do that when i got home. its not illegal guys, but it go goes against the contract with visa and mastercard, and i think amex as well. so next time you eat there not intending to spend much, remind them that the MINIMUM PURCHASE RULE IS NOT ALLOWED IN THEIR CONTRACTS
The food is fresh - except everything has a LOT of MSG. Every time I eat here, I get a severe MSG headache and extremely thirsty within an hour of eating. So ... after trying this place 3 times in the last 3 years .... no more Pho Bac Ky.
Also, the last time I went, the broth for the pho seemed to be water mixed with MSG. The broth/soup is the reason to go eat pho. Traditional pho recipes call for the beef parts to render for 12 hours to make the broth/stock. It tastes like it was cooked for an hour, and just add a lot of MSG to make up the difference.
I heard from many food scientists, that if you eat a lot of processed food, you lose your sense of taste, and your brain actually starts craving the MSG flavor. MSG also makes you overeat.
I won't go back to this place until they get rid of the MSG !!!!!!
