I think those who love it can agree that what makes or breaks a bowl of Pho is the beef stock. Otherwise, it is just a bunch of noodles, meat, and vegetables thrown into a broth. It takes time and care to make a delicious broth. These people take the time.
Because it is convenient we have gone many times to the Pho Dau Bo on Upper James although we prefer the downtown location. The pho there is passable but not great. To my mind they are a little stingy on the beef, but overall it's a nice place. We started to look for something nearby that is better, We didn't have to look for,
When you are in front of the Pho Dau Bo, if you look off to your right you can see the sign for Pho Binh Minh. I was always curious about it. Yesterday on the way back from Toronto we decided to stop in and try it out.
It's kind of tricky to get into if you are coming down James but we made it. Perhaps easier to park in the adjacent No Frills. It doesn't look much from the outside. Or the inside either for that matter. It's clean and pleasant, and there is a fountain feature on the way to the bathroom, but it's pretty generic. We weren't there for the atmosphere anyway. It's the food that matters.
We ordered a small Pho,spring rolls, and a noodily, Bin dish. Pleasant waiter and manager, quick service, and when it came the food was absolutely delicious, and hot. The soup has a beautiful, minty, complex broth, with lots of very tender beef, and my Bin was great with lots of vegetables, and meat. Spring rolls were so so. Huge portions. We were in and out quickly and completely satisfied. Only set us back $22. It's out new favourite place for Vietnamese food in Hamilton. I highly recommend it.

The food here is good but the way the employees treat the customers is ridiculously unprofessional, as if we are disturbing them but coming into the restaurant. Very rude, do not recommend
