Reviews for Pho Element

Takeout was super easy, I just called over the phone, and it was ready in ten minutes. It's a little tricky to get to as it's right on el Camino but usually you can find a spot in front.

This place serves northern style pho so thicker noodles, not vermicelli, and only jalapeños and limes as garnish. I ordered the chicken pho for pickup and it was so tasty. The broth was clean, the chicken was super tender, and it was a great bowl of soup for a cold day. The prices full review

Why did I wait so long to try this place? It's SO GOOD. The pho comes in huge bowls, and they are high end delivery bowls, they don't fall apart. I got tons of delicious vegetable broth and a huge bowl of vegetables. My husband got the filet pho and it was super delicious. One of my favorite foods is sautéed pea shoots and they have them! All hail pho element.

Love this place for their always fresh food!
I understand that chicken pho is simple dish and there is only one recipe for it but this pho tastes better than any others.
Last time we tried their famous tofu, I don't like tofu, I almost never eat tofu, but I ate half of the plate of this tofu.
Vermicelli rolls were good too: fresh, crunchy, flavorful.
