We decided to work our way up Main Street, trying out every single Pho place. The first one is Pho Hoang on Main and West 18th Ave. The restaurant was packed, a good sign. Btw, if you have any good suggestions, please let me know!
Service is rather substandard, not atypical of vietnamese cuisine. The waitress lazily wiped our table with a dirty cloth before sitting us. The table still feel greasy. We were served tea, food, and ignored.
Stereotypical of Vietnamese restaurants in Vancouver. There is a poorly kept fish tank at the entrance Tables are not cleaned properly and definitely wobbly. I wouldn't bring anyone here for dates, not even for cheap dates. I suppose it is not as repulsive as the pho place near UBC though.
Overall Experience (2.5/5)
I do enjoy a value meal with large size hearty food. The whole experience wasn't that memorable. It leaves me yearning to try out more pho places.
Good cheap food, but does it compete with other pho place on Main? We will see
