Reviews for Sidestreet Pho

I've always enjoyed this place and feel they have some of the best tasting broth I've had. I ordered through their website and this was the first time since the pandemic that we have ordered and I really was looking forward to this yummy pho. I was here on Friday and I ordered The thin sliced ribeye. And what I received was the equivalent of lunch meat. It was completely over cooked, grey and not rare or raw as traditionally served. My partner ordered the beef pho combo and full review

I ordered bun rieu and fried chicken wings to go. The broth of the noodle soup was full of flavor and the meatball was tasty! The fried chicken wings were crispy and flavorful. Not many places offer bun rieu, and I am very glad to have found this place! I will definitely go back!

Some of the dishes for non vegetarian diners look decent but I have been ther at least 5 times and find no thought put into the vegetarian broth which is the main flavor in the soup. Perhaps out of a swanson’s can? And expensive for what effort and vegetables. The fresh rolls were better but not worth going for. Nice people and hope someday they improve (let me know because I would try one last time if things change).
