This restaurant is located in Clairemont, on Clairemont Mesa Blvd., in San Diego, It is a great location to get a huge portions of great Vietnamese food. This location is a popular noodle house, but I love plate 64. That is, B-B-Q chicken and rice. Add a side of egg roles and peanut sauce and you will stuff yourself to... More

I had the beef pho with large noodles. It was flavorful, filling, and came with additional jalapenos, Thai basil, and bean sprouts on the side. I wish that they had skimmed the broth as it was on the greasy side.

This is a good place to eat with good prices and plenty of parking. I have been there many times and the food is always good. You can count on a consistent plate of good food every time you go there.

Typical Pho menu like other Pho restaurants. Nothing extraordinary. Service is cold and not friendly. Their food contains a lot of MSG so I get thirsty after eating it. Not my first choice in Vietnamese food.

I go here every week. Nice, tasty food. I usually don't get the pho but get 83 and 93 instead. Those are noddle with meat and veggies. This stuff is very flavorful. The rolls (egg, spring or pork) are to die for esp. when used with the dipping sauces. I cannot vouch for the pho noodle soup stuff because I... More

Have been going here for years. Excellent Salad rolls, egg rolls, Pho and Bun. Efficient and friendly service. Have not tried very many other items. Pho is great in winter and Bun (cold noodle salad) is best in summer. Both are very satisfying!

good food, but a little unusual flavor combinations. The spring rolls had both shrimp and beef in them. It was good, but they were not not my favorites. They also seemed to be shy on spicing up the food. I liked the flavors, but I had to add my own hot sauce.

A very dear friend of my daughter's - part of her mommy group - and of Chinese heritage - suggested a trip to have Pho and then grocery shopping at the nearby 99 Ranch Market (Asian). So we set the date and we went. Another 20 minute drive - you can get anywhere in San Diego in 20 minutes -... More

I stopped by with my mother for lunch. It was during lunch so the place was busy. We ordered an apetizer of spring rolls to share but the server, a man who seemed grouchy, gave us only one small saucer of dipping sauce. I asked him for one more. He walked away mumbling his unhappiness within my ear shot. Then... More

I've had a hankering for Vietnamese food for a while so after doing some research I decided to drag my wife to Pho T Cali on election night for dinner. We were really favorably pleased with the restaurant. Its a little far down to Claremont Mesa but worth the trip after the traffic on the 805 dies down. The restaurant... More
