Every time I visit Minnesota, I have to come here. The food is amazingly good. I love the com tam and banh mi here. I'm from Vietnam and this place makes me miss my home so much. I can't never get enough of the banh mi and they have great deal on them too. Highly recommended this place!!!!

Dinner with the family on Sunday night-pho soup for three of us and bahn mi for the other two. Great flavors all around. Nice spring rolls, both fried and fresh. Mango smoothies for the kids with jellies. A good value.

This was my first time to have Vietnamese food. This place was very pleasing to the taste buds and the service was very fast. We love this place!

I love the food here! All the soups that i have tried are excellent (pho and wonton noodle). They have so much flavor! The stir fry dishes are amazon as well. I don't think you can go wrong with anything at this restaurant. The traditional ban mi sandwiches are very tasty.

I just love this place. After a week or two I need a pho fix. Order number 11 extra large and bring home the left overs. They do a really nice job packing the noodles/meat separately from the broth and may even top up your broth. Young friendly efficient staff. Positive vibe. Busy but moved pretty quick.

Wonderful Vietnamese Pho with excellent broth base and all the fresh fixings. Ban mi sandwiches and barbecue excellent. Appetizers were only okay - spring rolls and fried tofu were fair - so I would focus on the Pho and sandwiches. The Jumbo bowl is truly jumbo and could feed even the heartiest of appetites! Good prices and good service too.

iPho offers Vietnamese food that rivals anywhere else in Minneapolis/St. Paul. Their service is just about the best I have ever experienced at a restaurant and the food is a good value. I like the bahn mi, spring rolls and cream cheese wantons. As a vegetarian, their tofu and mock duck are excellent.

I have been here a couple of times and have had the pho chicken every time. It is delicious! They don't skimp on the chicken. I also had the spicy chicken wings which were also excelent. Not too spicy. (I used some of the wing sauce in my pho, which I highly recomend) The sandwiches are delicious as well. They... More

There were 3 of us and we all had something different - pho, salad and a chicken platter. The food was excellent, the service good, the prices very reasonable. They apparently are remodeling so the ladies bathroom was into a back room, up some stairs and down the hall. My friend commented that it was just like being in Asia... More
