It has been far too long since I last tried Pho Real but I have a wicked cold and needed some power soup and this place did not disappoint. At first I always thing it's a tad on the expensive side (for soup), but you can really taste (feel) the quality come through as you sip (slurp). Today I got... More

My wife and I enjoyed a great vegan meal here for my 45th birthday. Super friendly staff and great food at really good price. Our waiter Domino, was very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu offering suggestions as well as answering any questions we had on types of food ingredients and an explanation of some other menu items.

This is a restaurant my fiancé and I visited regularly. We love the pork grilled spring rolls with the peanut sauce (yum), the pho bowls and the bun thit nuong. That's our go-to meal. I will say the couple of times I strayed away from our go-to, I have not been thrilled, but for the food they do well, it... More

The broth seemed watered down. It seemed they catered the taste to suit American taste buds. Did not have an authentic Vietnamese taste

Whenever we fly out of Charlotte airport we come here to eat. We know good pho, and this place really hits the spot. The broth is always great. They also have our favorite Bun bo Hue- a spicy noodle soup with thick noodles and tendon. If you like pho you have to try this place. Definitely the best we've had... More

I've tried many Vietnamese phos in Charlotte and many are very good. But overall this is my favorite because the broth is full of beef & spice flavors. If you're a spicy peppers fan ask for the chili paste - it's not on the table, just standard sriracha. I never get past the pho and the very fresh spring rolls,... More

This casual restaurant is on the second floor in the back of a shopping strip. Judging by the clientele, the food is authentic Vietnamese. We started with grilled pork spring rolls which were good. Entrées were beef pho and lemongrass chili tofu. Both were tasty. Prices were reasonable and service was friendly and efficient.
