Went to this restaurant this weekend as we live just around the corner. We tried the Pad Thai and the Grilled Chicken Lemongrass Soup Bowl. Did not care for the Pad Thai. The flat noodles were chewy, the dish just lacked flavor. Have had much better Pad Thai at other Columbus area restaurants. Lemongrass chicken was ok. Chicken was tender... More

First time here. Walked in and was greeted and pointed to a table. I sat down and the server came right away and took my drink order. My order came right away and it was delicious. Everything was great here for lunch. Prices are reasonable. The restaurant was clean. Gladly go back.

My wife and I decided to try this place. The waitress was not very attentive send had no personally. She talked monotone the whole time. I had to tell her twice what I wanted to drink. My wife asked for a recommendation on what to get. She said, soup. Problem, there are about 15-20 different dishes with soup. She then.pointed... More

I travel a lot in Asia for work, and I have a lot of difficulty eating Asian food in the US because it's just not the same. Pho is a traditional soup dish from Vietnam, with lots of noodles and some meat or fish. I had the spicy beef pho, it's really spicy so be ready. It was really good... More

What a gem hidden in a strip mall! The service was prompt. I ordered the spicy chicken curry soup noodle bowl which was delicious, spicy, and fresh. My kids love pho so I will be back with them.

I visit Pho Chef regularly, as their food is tremendous. I particularly adore the Curry Tofu Fried Rice, which is plenty large enough for a meal. Their spring rolls are great too. Prices are fair. The only reason I don't give it five stars is bc the ambiance is lacking, it's a plain restaurant. Oh - try their bubble tea,... More

Thank you Pho Chef for delicious, authentic food presented beautifully. Service was friendly and fast and the staff was eager to talk to us when we had questions. I hope this restaurant continues to do well!

I had lunch here a few weeks ago while in town for work. My local colleague hadn't dined here, but I saw it was popular on TA so we gave it a try. We were seated immediately and our server was ready for our order right away...apparently many people dine here quickly! My colleague isn't adventurous (meat and potatoes guy),... More

After visiting family for Christmas and on our way out of town, we decided to stop for a bite to eat. We hadn't had pho in a long time, so we decided to try the spot. The restaurant is located in a small, relatively new strip mall on the north side of 161 / Dublin-Granville Rd, east of Sawmill Rd.... More

Great choice of noodle bowls brimming and plentiful with meat vegetables and noodles. Very economical. Spring Rolls good and Pork Fried RIce very tasty. Not too heavy or greasy . Pad Thai was lackluster in flavor rather bland and dissapointing. Staff very personable. This little gem is tucked into a strip mall on Dublin Granville Road close to Sawmill. A... More
