The soup was sufficiently flavourful and the noodles was not too soft - cooked just right. Just about the average price compared to some other pho shops. They were very generous with the herbs and bean sprouts and other garnishings. Definitely a place to eat...pho when in that area!More

Pho Le is a renowned pho restaurant with regional presence. The original store is close to Cholon, Ho Chi Minh City's Chinatown. Beef pho is the only option here. Broth is very mild even by local standard and meat is slightly on the chewy and...overcooked side. Service is polite. Price is on the upper end according to our guide. It is somehow in the middle of nowhere and will take a moderate walk from the city centre.More

Not as good as the pho I had in Hanoi or danang... beef is not bad but the noodle and soup are a bit tasteless... and my raw beef was fully cooked...

The pho is great with nice light flavor broth, having tried various Pho places around Saigon I would say this place beats 80% of the other popular pho places in terms of taste of pho. Price was about 1.5x more expensive than other popular places...you can find around the city. Don't mind paying extra for good pho but this place is an outdoor type place and is pushing the price a bit too far. The service was very poor though. We did not get any napkins and had to ask twice for them, wtf? For most people reading this, this place will be a far taxi or grab ride to get to, it may be worth it depending on how desperate you are for good pho and if you have any napkins you can bring from your hotel room.More

More on the semi pricy-er side but you get your money's worth with the Brisket Pho! Would definitely come back with friends!

Excellent Pho for just 75k VND. Comes with a lot of soybean sprouts and salad / mint. Great for a quick lunch if you're in the area.

This place specializes in beef noodle soup or beef pho. Quite popular with the locals and some tourists can be seen dining in. However, it was tough to ask questions about the menu due to language barrier. Just order the beef pho by pointing at...the menu with photos. It comes within a very short period of waiting. Service is good. They seem to have only 7 options for the noodle soup, perhaps only 1 size for all. You can choose from different “toppings” - meatball, brisket, filet mignon and a few combinations. Prices range from 70k - 80k dong. There are more options of drinks, like juices, coffee and tea. The pho comes with a large basket of assorted green leaves to improve the taste of the soup. There’s basil, mint leaves, lime and bean sprouts. Overall, food quality exceeded our expectation. One of the better meals we had in HCMC. Worth a return.More

The best in HCM city. Their broth is so delicious, you smell the beef. Definitely no MSG, because after you ate, you will not feel thirsty all day. The large bowl kind of big, it is full after you finish. The beef tender so delicious,...they sold out quick.More

Pho was really good. Simple at the beginning, but once you add the herbs, wow. So good. Very friendly at the beginning, but as it got full the guy with the money got a little rough with the tables. It’s not a place To hang...out. You eat and got to go.More

This place serve a large portion of pho. However, the ingridents are not high quality. The taste is kinda strange. It's good in term of portion. But still pricey.

Looking for a great bowl of beef pho. I just had the best bowl of beef brisket pho. The broth was rich, thick, beefy and just greasy enough. And the brisket was tender and fatty. Try it you cant go wrong.

About 30-45 mins from TSN airport to this restaurant by taxi. But traffic in HCM is very unpredictable. I'm​ afraid it is too rush for 3 hrs transit.
