Everything is good here. Vietnamese espresso with sweet milk, fresh rolls, chicken wings, vermicelli combination, pho (tendon), duck noodle soup, grilled pork bahn mi, fried cheesecake... Good service and ambiance. Simply Pho is my jam.

This restaurant is clean, well decorated, and in a nice plaza. I did not bother to ask any questions about gluten since pho is usually GF if you keep it simple and traditional. I got the eye of round pho which was great. The bowl was huge and the price was standard. They even gave me a to go tupperware for my unfinished pho. My husband ordered the oxtail pho. He said the broth had a LOT of flavor. He was pretty disappointed that the oxtail was tough. We were not sure if that was intentional or by accident. Either way, if you order the oxtail pho you will have to work to get the meat off the bone! The only complaint I had was that it took FOREVER for them to bring us the check. Other than that everything was great and I did not have any reactions to the pho. Also, the pho took the appropriate amount of time to come out to us.

My family and I have visited multiple times and have not been disappointed anywhere from the Thai teas to the Pho! Everything taste fresh and true to culture! I suggest a Thai Tea if you like sweet teas and the Iced coffee if you're a coffee fan! I've also had a pick up service and that experience was just as easy and good! Service is great here!

As a long time regular, today was the worst experience I've ever had. I walk in and had to seat myself. I sat down behind one of the regular waitresses who was on lunch. Five or so minutes later and multiple passes by the other waitstaff and I got up and left. No one other than the waitress on lunch even acknowledged. So very disappointed!

I go here pretty regularly for lunch. $8-10, good pho. Clean, nice bowls and utensils. Friendly staff. Relaxing piano music and a calming aesthetic. Definitely recommend.

First time here and overall good experience but average food. Ordered the goi cuon/spring rolls and pho dac biet/special pho. Goi cuon was decent, stuffed with lots of noodles and vegetables, but only came with one slice of pork and few shrimp. Pho dac biet was average, clean broth but lacked the depth of flavor I'd expect from pho. Plenty of noodles and meats, however it only came with one piece of beef tripe and one piece of beef tendon; definitely not enough to call this a pho dac biet. Additionally, the plate of fresh vegetables that comes with the pho was very lackluster; plenty of bean sprouts but none of the other mint leaves that should come with your pho. Overall I gave it a three stars. Service was fast and friendly, but very pedestrian food and flavors.

Good Pho and grilled pork/ beef rice. Staff are friendly and nice. Price is reasonable with the serving they have.

I love their Pho. Although they always give me too much chicken when I get takeout my dogs don't seem to mind. I haven't eaten in but always get take out. Parking is not always good. They've only messed up one order but never offered anything for that. But I still like their food.

Nice place, good menu, great service, good value.

We had another fantastic lunch today. Great food. Great service. A truly wonderful and tasty meal. I had the grilled pork over angel hair and it was fantastic. I would definitely get this again. We are lucky to have Simply Pho in North Tampa.

Good good and gluten free options. Taste is good but im very picky

Simply Pho is a cute little Vietnamese restaurant in a plaza. The food was amazing actually! And the portions are huge. I had the beef vermicelli and it was so divine that I ordered another to-go for later in the night. Definitely 5 stars. Will be my go to spot whenever I’m back in the Tampa area

Charlie Thompson

First time, helpful and efficient wait staff, but the pho will bring us back.

Jenette S.

This is the only Vietnamese close by and they do a great job. Service is always decent and the food is always good no matter what you pick. =)

Hands down this is our go to place not only for Pho but other great dishes. The location is off the main road and most of the time you can easily find parking right near the restaurant entrance. . . Service is always great and friendly. The Pho is always tasty and fresh. We have even tried the pork chops and stir fry. Nothing ever wrong. Never said I would have tried something else.. . Thai Ice Tea is also very good.. . Prices can not be better.. . This is our go to place.

Now Simply Pho is a wonderful little Vietnamese restaurant on Dale Mabry in Tampa, FL right next to the Fresh Market on the corner of Fletcher Avenue. Now I have to say that I've never had Vietnamese food before, so, I wasn't sure about what to expect. And -boy! Was I pleasantly surprised. The food was awesome. It's sort of like Tai (which I love) but with less sugar. And the sauces seem to be less thick. The herbs were very fresh and flavorful too. I absolutely loved it! It was such a nice atmosphere, and the staff was excellent. They were polite and professional. I can't say enough good things about it. I really really liked it.. #DRDERISE

Very good food and fast service. Pork skin fresh rolls are weird though. Avoid them

Manny S.

Service: above average. It was just 11:15am, so it was pretty empty and the waitress very attentive. Drinks: -Thai tea: It was a little more on the bitter side than I would have liked, but still -Honeydew Boba: Perfect! Just the right amount of tapioca balls. Not too sweet, not not too bland. Food: delicious. Portion was perfect. We spent about $28 for both of us. Not bad. Definitely coming back.

I have never had a bad food experience here. It's always delicious and present realistic time expectations. Love it!

Hallie Chandola

Very nice food! Few, but delicious vegetarian options. Be sure to specify vegetable broth for vegetarian pho. I’ve always had a pleasant experience here.

Heather Hodges

Very good! I recommend the beef stew as opposed to the beef pho, the broth is much more flavorful.

Dan Penning

Great pho, great prices, great service. I'm glad we have an option like simply pho in our area.

Eric J.

We make it out to Simply Pho every couple months and are pleased each visit. The wait staff are friendly and attentive and the food is always fresh. Prices are reasonable with most entrees being in the 8 to $12 range. I don't think my glass has ever gone empty and have never left annoyed that my food was not fresh or that it didn't arrive in a timely fashion.

Shanae W.

This restaurant is very authentic, affordable and fresh! We ordered the pho, a kids meal, Thai tea, and the fried noodle dish and the were all fresh and amazing! Definitely coming back for a date night to try their drinks!

Simran M.

This place is literally my FAVORITE pho place out of all the Pho places I've ever visited in America! Such unique flavors and spices!!! My favorite thing to get there is the spicy beef soup and their Thai Tea with Boba

Lois F.

Food was good however need to increase amounts as the bowls are too small and limited amounts of noodles. Service is good but felt like being rush and the lunch hour was just starting. Clean bathrooms and kitchen

Ditte O.

You know when there is more Vietnamese people eating there than anyone else, this place is bound to be amazing... oh and it was! I had the vegetarian Pho, but honestly anything on that menu sounded good. I'll come back

Mirela D.

This is my favorite place to get pho. You can easily share a bowl of beef pho and and a Banh Mi sandwich and feel happy and full! I'm addicted. The staff is super sweet and the food comes out quickly! Love coming here.

Melissa G.

Every time I visist I always have to get the refreshing limeade...the meals however are so filling and delicious. They are fresh and healthy alternatives but most of the menu does your body some kind of favor. I often times get the sweet and sour wings, white rice, and a variety of appetizers. The pho bowl is great and is good for those cool days. It warms your soul and your bones at the same time. Please check them out.

I ordered the tofu vermicelli and it was pretty good. It came with julienne carrots cucumbers and lots of bean sprouts. The fish sauce was good but pretty average. I really miss having basil fresh basil in it. And they give you slippery plastic Chopsticks which pick up nothing. I would go there again and try something else... It really hit me as three stars but I gave it four because I believe it's better than what I thought it was..... I really wasn't in the mood for Vietnamese today

Brooke Star

I stopped into Simply Pho after having my haircut next door. I originally wanted Pho but opted for the vermicelli bowl instead. I started with the spring rolls, they were great and I mean who doesn't love peanut sauce! I did love that the vermicelli bowl had an option for a combo as I usually have to pay extra for 2 meats. Overall it was yummy but wasn't the best Vietnamese I've ever had but I would return.

Steven Rodriguez

Our new go to place for chicken pho. I have also tried the shaking beef (outstanding) and the spicy soup. The flavor of the spicy soup is wonderful, but it has udon noodles and not rice noodles.

Jade T.

Neeed a quick and simple light lunch. Decided to stop in since the last time I was here which was over 3 years ago. Service was prompt and friendly. Ordered steamed edamame dumplings and a chicken pho. Dumplings were good. Pho was a little bland. I'm use to my chicken pho with a more clear broth. Simply Pho was on the darker side. Restaurant is pretty clean which is always an A+.

Gregory Hall

I'm not big on oriental food. However, a coworker got me some onion soup from here and it was very good.

Tiffany Heil

I can't say a single negative thing about this place. Always consistent. Always on point. Always friendly. We've literally been coming here weekly for 6+ months and it haa NEVER been less than great.
