This place has nothing but deliciousness! From the pho, to the chicken wings, to the Ba Mi sandwiches everything is great quality and always Super Fresh. The patio is a great place to sit outside and enjoy lunch. To top it all off the service is always fantastic!
We come here regularly and love Super Super. The pho is always so comforting, the broth is well made. The spring rolls and egg rolls are yummy too. The family is always so friendly. I even bring my containers and they so kindly support it. Best pho spot! Definitely check it out.
TLDR: amazing banh mi and great prices. I decided to try Super Super after perusing Yelp for a good Vietnamese restaurant near Berkeley. I stumbled upon Super Super and was immediately convinced to make the trip here after seeing the great prices and delicious looking food. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the nicest older man - he was so cheerful and kind. The way the restaurant works is that you step up to a counter to order your food, are handed a number to place on your table and then a server will bring your food out to you. My partner and I ordered a pork banh mi, and two combination phos. First, let's talk about the banh mi! The bread was pillowy soft and buttery while the pork was super flavorful. I can see why this place is named Super Super - it's super delicious. My partner and I were so impressed by the banh mi that we ordered another one to take home. The pho came with a generous portion of thin rice noodles and tender beef. The soup had strong beefy flavor and I was extremely satisfied by the pho. I highly recommend ordering the pho! I can't wait to come back when I have another craving for Vietnamese food. I'd love to try other items on the menu!
Very friendly service. Delicious and fresh food. High quality meat. Nice outdoor patio and parking in rear.
Super nice staff, esp the kid who takes your order
Delicious! Grabbed some lunch to-go while driving through this neighborhood. Combination bun vermicelli with pork and shrimp was fantastic and bf loved his combo banh mi. Fresh shrimp rolls were also very tasty - great meal, filling portions but don't leave you in a food coma (loved their fish sauce too!) We are looking forward to returning to have a bowl of pho.
There are a lot of good Vietnamese restaurants around El Cerrito/Albany so I was curious what set this apart. My party went and we were greeted by the very friendly host of the restaurant. The place was clean and homey with a nice covered outdoor area. The menu was simple and straight forward. I ordered their sandwiches and boy was I surprised. The bread was soft and warm unlike a lot of other Vietnamese restaurant. The meat was warm and moist. However what is really the shocker is the sauce they use. Mhm whatever is in the sauce, I'm hooked. I order one than order another just to split with my party b/c the sandwich was so good. I literately marked their return date from vacation so I can schedule time to be back and order more of their sandwiches. And during the time I couldn't eat their sandwich, I had fevered dreams of eating it. Overall if you like Vietnamese sandwiches this is good place to come to. They got big space outside and inside. They also got their own parking lot so no need to park on street. The host is very friendly and food is ready quick. I would definitely come here again if I'm dying for sandwich.
The Bahn Mi bread is world class :)
Don't go to pho k k if this is an option
This place is awesome! Hugeee portions and so reasonable. For 20 dollars we had a large bowl of pho and 4 spring rolls. More than enough for my boyfriend and I, with broth left over to take home. Definitely recommend coming here, and they also have a really cute outdoor patio!
The pho is tasty and reasonably priced, but what really gets me is the cute small family run aspect of it. OG Vietnamese family with the mom and dad running the kitchen, and the kids taking orders and waiting. I asked one of the kids who's in high school whether he has time to play with friends, and he said, "No, but I'm able to help my family." so sweet! Pro tip! I don't know why I've never thought of this in my whole life of eating pho, but you can save the broth, take it home, and use it to supercharge whatever you want to cook the next day! I used it as a broth base for making a red lentil and rice porridge and it's freaking delish. Only complaint is I wish they served tendon and the other fobbier cuts of meat I crave.
Huge huge portions and really nice service :) Food: I got the beef pho and boy was the portion size big. The beef wasn't as tender as I expected but it wasn't too bad. However, the broth and noodles were super yummy and def worth the price. I also got the egg rolls and it was super crunchy and flavorful. Service: we were greeted enthusiastically by the people working here and they were very friendly coming in and out. You first pay at the front counter and then they bring you your food so you can take as long as you want to eat without worrying about the bill Ambience: very large with lots of seating. Also parking lot in the back so a plus for that :) Bathrooms are out back and they're single stall and relatively clean :)
Vermicelli with pork. The quality and seasoning of the pork are disappointing. This place uses what seems to be a pork chop. Dish lacks the bbq taste and seasoning.
I tried this place via a friends praises and iâ??m already hooked!! As others have stated, the food is wonderful, staff very pleasant/friendly!!
We came here with party of five on May 26th for dinner. It was our first time here and sadly we will not come back again, we will save our $$ and go to Le Pho Vietnamese Restaurant just few miles down the street. We came here because their 4 stars reviews given by those people who probably never ate a good Vietnamese food in their life. So those 4 stars reviews are so wrong and fool a lot of people. We ordered two Bun`(Vietnamese Vermicelli) with Grill Chicken and Grill Pork. When the dishes arrived the meat were dried and it looks like days old meat with a not so pleasure smell on the meat. So we put the meat aside we could not eat it. The Chicken and Pork were not grill as it supposed to be grill in most Vietnamese restaurants..... not PAN sautéed. The older waiter (the owner) came by asked how is everything, so I had to tell him and show him the untouched Chicken and Pork were not fresh, it smell like old cooked meat. He just said sorry and hurry took the meat back into the kitchen. We snap two pictures and want to share with others our bad experience with Super Super Pho.
Oh! My! God! The best Banh Mi I have ever encountered! I don't think I'll ever be able to eat it anywhere else. Super fresh, the meat was perfect! The rest of my family had Pho and that was amazing as well. The staff is super friendly and the adorable gentleman who took our order is the best! This is our new Vietnamese spot!!
Nice people and very good food
I'm often on the hunt for good pho especially when I am under the weather. My first time here and I'm already a fan of this no-frills Vietnamese restaurant. The generously large chicken pho was yummy and the shrimp spring rolls were fresh and came with some cilantro. There was also really good unlimited self-service hot tea.
Don't get fouled by the outside apperance of this business the food is delicious so authentic the place is clean and friendly service, the price are very affordable I tried other pho places around Berkeley University and are expensive and without flavor here on the contrary I recommend you the varmicelli with shrimp, chicken and roast pork with fried roll and the pho #1 has everything tendon, brisket meatballs they also have complimentary hot teað???
!!Amazing!! The food is delicious, we've had the spring rolls, Thai iced tea, chicken and shrimp banh mi, as well as veggie pho. The food always comes out quick and tastes beyond delicious. They also have an amazing chile sauce that goes well with everything (and unlimited free hot tea). The spot is wonderful, with lots of plants and beautiful outdoor seating. The owners/workers are always very friendly and accommodating. It's a perfect spot, couldn't recommend highly enough.
I love this restaurant! Cute outdoor porch. My husband and I have always enjoyed everything we've had here - pho, vermicelli bowls, fresh and fried rolls. Good veggie and even a vegan option for friends! And the owners are super nice.
We wanted to find a pet friendly eatery since we were celebrating our grandpup's 2 nd birthday. Had just spent the morning at Point Isabel and it was time for lunch. They have their own parking lot and also an outdoor eating area. Was surprised so many diners chose to eat outdoors. You place your orders inside then self serve your utensils and cups for water. An elderly man brought out our bowls one by one and each time he said "choo choo" like a train as he approached our table. The first time I heard that I must have subtly raised my eyebrows slightly. When it happened two more times figured that's how he brings your food out. Perhaps because we were outdoors the broth was not temperature hot. It was mildly seasoned vs the richer version I'm used to but I did finish all my noodles. It was a good lunch choice especially if you have a cough. Hubs mentioned that at home I/we usually get a side order of thinly sliced onions, add it to steaming hot soup and douse it with hoisin and sriracha sauces. I wouldn't even ask if it was available here, I might get a reply like "not on menu lady, all aboard." I am glad that there is a pho place here. The beverages made the lunch. Thanks for treating us to lunch CA & grandpup
Good services, prices right, good Vietnamese food, will visite again in future
First time customer. Ordered a #1/Super Pho Combo for pickup. My "super" combo was missing tendon and beef balls. The broth was tasty, but disappointed that I didn't get half the meats I paid for.
Tasty pho. Nice patio seating area. We came in 3pm and there were couple customers enjoying a bowl of pho on a sunny afternoon. The exterior wasn't that appealing but the inside was clean with friendly staff.
I put in an online order 15 minutes before closing on a Sunday night. I was hungry and exhausted after a long work day. Thank The Goddess for this family who prepared a fresh and healthy dinner for my son and I, even though it was the end of their day too! They even let me add to my order when I came to pick it up. Everything was delicious and I will definitely be back!
Huge portions at a reasonable price. It seems to be family operated and run. The young son took our order and was courteous and kind. The father and mother work the kitchen and have happy smiles when they greet their guests. This is perfect if one needs a heavy, hearty, and warm meal.
Yumm lunch go to spot and nice pkaxe to grab a warm soup when feeling a little cold coming
Went there for a early dinner and the food was average at best. I ordered a vegan sandwich and it only has three small slices of tofu, really. How much is tofu that you need to skimp. Also ordered the fries and they were soggy/ greasy with minimum flavor. My wife ordered a soup and though the size of the bowl was large it was mostly broth. I would choose another restaurant next time
Quaint family-run joint with good selection of pho and banh mi. Their pho broth is among the best in the Albany/El Cerrito and their dishes are reasonably priced. They have their own parking lot and outdoor seating which makes things a lot easier.
This is our favorite Pho restaurant. Whenever my partner and I want Pho this is our go to place. We usually order take out. You call them 10 min before a pick up and they will have your order ready. When you do dine there is outdoor and inside seating areas. The staff is very friendly.
Fantastic spot for authentic Vietnamese food! We love getting the vermicelli with grilled pork, shrimp, and egg rolls! Otherwise the banh mi is a great choice!
Back in Berkeley after many years it was nice to find this restaurant away from the busy commotion and traffic around the campus. Parking is available in the back. The night I visited I could tell that most of the patrons were regulars so that gave me a good feeling about this place. While it was busy my order was ready for pickup in less than five minutes.
One of the most friendliest places I've visited in the bay. Worth the stop if you like Phõ!
We love this pho spot - it's the best spot in the East Bay that we've found. Without pretension and just very, very tasty.
You pay first before seating. Nice mom and pop business with Pho comparable to ones in Sacramento.
So so special veggie pho and a great menu. It was a perfect meal on a day filled with pouring rain. They also have outdoor seating (my favorite thing) for sunny weather.
