My wife and i shared a hunger headache today while driving around in hollywood. We googled the nearest pho spot and found pho cafe. We Had some trouble finding it because it had no signage. Which told us that it was a locals only spot, so they probably dont really need your business. When we walked in, there were people standing waiting to be seated. After about 15 min, they sat us down. We ordered a vermicelli salad and a pho. The pho was under seasoned and the broth was watery. My vermecelli plate looked like it was just enough food for a 5 year old. It seemed like they ran the noodles through a food processor. Plus, they were Stingy with condiments! It was not what we expected at all. So mediocre..... btw: they don't take credit or debit cards. Be prepared to go next door to the atm and spend an extra $3.75 on the fee... plus whatever else your bank charges you. Never again!

The pho tai is above average. You get generous portions of filet mignon beef that is not too tough, the soup is not too salty or MSG-heavy but tasty, and it's well proportioned with the noodles. There's probably better pho out there, but this is definitely above average. I was expecting less from a neighbourhood pho shop. The beef lemon-grass "bun" (rice noodle and salad with springrolls) is very good. I'd give that an 8.5/10. It's the main thing to order in my opinion. Service is a little curt, and one of the dudes looks like he'd rather be somewhere else, but with a little place like this, you really want to be in and out anyway.

Best pho ever

Major points: weak broth, chili sauce is like ketchup. As an east coast pho fanatic, I was excited for my first west coast bowl. But this sterile, hipster-infested spot was a major disappointment. The broth has no aroma, no complexity. The chili sauce doesn't even help; its like Ragu. The noodles are thin, but they're probably the best part. And the service was terrible. Nothing like the traditional Vietnamese efficiency I'm used to. I guess if you're starving or want to impress your American Apparel clad friends with your "knowledge" of exotic cuisine, Pho Cafe is okay. I mean, its cheap and its pho!

Pho was okay, as far as Pho for LA is concerned. You can get much better Pho in OC and SGV but who wants to drive down that far if you dont live in those areas? Service was slow though. We were at the second to the last table though, so maybe that was just a dead area? We had to flag down the waiter/s at least three times and we ended up paying at the front.We walked in, and noticed mostly white people which is usually a bad sign when it comes to ethnic food such as pho (but then again, this is Silverlake). Broth was serviceable but not as what the hype claims. I had to add alot of condiments to mine. Prices were comparatively reasonable tho. Overall, the hype seems overblown to me and cheap enough. I would not go out of way to go back an eat here since I live in the west side but if you're in the area and craving some pho, it's good enough.

Very good food at decent prices all found in a minimalist, no-frills ambience. I go there often, and I will almost always order the pho tai (#7).
