If anyone is searching for good Pho and other good Vietnamese dishes, this place is definitely not the place to go. After reading the comments prior, I noticed that these folks do not know what good Pho is. I work close by this restaurant and...More

Pho 79 has become one of my favorite restaurants in St Paul. Not only do they have great service, friendly staff and affordable prices, they make a really tasty mock duck curry bun. The atmosphere of the restaurant is pleasant, and although they can get...More

I've had Pho at a lot of places. This is a mainstream place that captures the eyes of the public. Spring rolls were good. They get you in and out as fast as possible. No interaction and I don't believe the broth is how it...More

Our first take out/ away in Minnesota. We really enjoyed our order. From the spring rolls(egg) to the pho. All good. We will go back before we leave in a couple of months.

Pho 79 is kind of hidden between a gas station and Bruegger's Bagels off Energy Park Drive, but is a great place for a quick affordable lunch or take-out. I have tried the pork banh mi, spring rolls and typically have the meatball pho. The...More

Went out with a group from the office to try Vietnamese food. This was my second go at eating pho. The pho was very filling, prepared well with a good flavor at a decent price.
