No frills looking restaurant but who cares. The PHO is amazing. I can't think of a better bowl that I have had anywhere. Family owned, we visit Waikiki every year for Thanksgiving for a week. This place is usually 3 of our dinners for the week. Fantastic. very nice, but quite people that run it. No booze but you can... More

A small Vietnamese restaurant that appears family owned. Nothing special to look at, but the food is wonderful and service is cordial. I like these kinds of places that places value on the food, and not the venue. On the corner of Enna Rd and Kalakaua. It opens at 11 am daily.

This is traditional Vietnamese food not some variant on Asian fusion. This is a place with a decor which looks untouched since the 1930's. That said, this tasted like the Vietnamese food I had in Vietnam. Everything tasted fresh and clean. I loved their Green Papaya salad, one of my favorite dishes in the world. I will certainly go back... More

They were so helpful when one in our party was ill and needed chicken soup - sweet family made great recommendations and we had chicken, beef and seafood pho, All reasonably priced and well prepared. Large portions and worked well both in reastaurant and to go. So glad we found you.

Great Vietnamese food at a great price! Simple restaurant with yummy food. Service is quick, nothing fancy. Lots of vegetarian options. A welcome change in tourist hell!

Great place for fair priced and very tasty Vietnamese food that is totally family run. It is a no frills kind of place that the focus is on the food with a good assortment on the menu, but not over kill with offerings. It is my favorite Vietnamese place to go as they are very consistent, hot and fresh in... More

My family and I visited Pho Minh Thu as we were craving our favorite Asian dish. We each had a bowl of Pho Ga (Chicken Pho) as well as summer rolls and Vietnamese egg rolls.

Taste of Pho is very good and there are a lot of herb, mint and long coriander with very competitively reasonable price in Waikiki area. The location of this restaurant might be hard for the first visitors to be found. The restaurant is next to Ena Road Laundry behind the 7-Eleven near Ena road on Kalakaua Ave. Please Don't Miss...

Friendly atmosphere with a great Vietnamese food. Tucked into the more residential corner of Waikiki on the ewa end. It's cozy with no frills, just good eats. Tip: call ahead and order some bun or bahn mi sandwiches for the perfect meal on the beach
