My go-to place for a hot bowl of soup/pho for a winter lunch.

Love their noodle soups and beef/veg stew. Quite consistent in terms of flavor & quality over the past couple of years I've been frequenting. Place is well lit & clean for a Pho joint. Can get busy past noon, but they try their best to seat & serve promptly. Reasonably priced.

Well recommended.

Was looking forward to Pho Ga and hot soup and was not disappointed. However, I have eaten better Pho at NYC and hence, it did not fully match my expectations. The fresh spring roll too, could have been better.

The service was excellent! Prices were very reasonable. The portion was good.

I was not overly impressed. The service was a bit slow and not genuine. I ordered Pho. The broth was lackluster and not as flavorful as other Pho restaurants I have visited. Add that to the disingenuous service, I will probably not return.

I eat at Monsoon Pho regularly as I think their Satay Shrimp Pho is the best pho in America. The broth is hearty and the ingredients fresh. My husband switches back and forth between pho and the rice bowls there.

Their takeout presentation is the best! It's deconstructed. Broth in one soup-type container. Meats and veggies in another plate-type container. It's really great if you want to pick it up early and eat late. Just toss it all in the pan to heat it up and it will taste exactly as it does in the restaurant.

Pho, when left over changes texture. Don't get me wrong, I love leftover Satay Shrimp Pho, but it's very different from fresh made. The liquid of the leftover pho soaks into the noodles and it's more like a noodle dish than a soup dish the longer it sits.
