The Pho menu includes, Pho Bo Vien topped with homemade Súp signature beef meatballs ($12), Pho King topped with boneless short rib slices ($14), Pho Ga topped with slices of grilled chicken, served with chicken stock broth ($12) among other offerings.
Their grill menu includes shiitake mushroom brushed with sweet tare-soy served on three skewers ($6), pork chop, lemongrass-soy marinated served bone-in ($10), chicken thighs, lemongrass-soy marinated, served boneless ($10), chicken breast, tare-soy marinated, served boneless ($11), lamb chops ($11), tiger shrimp, shell-off jumbo shrimp, seven spiced, presented one two skewers ($13), and a 12-ounce ribeye steak (12oz), with a honey-soy marinade ($26).
On Yelp, Timbotron64, from Manhattan, gave the restaurant five stars.
“This place is an absolute must try,” Timbotron64 wrote. “I haven't had pho this good since I was in Southeast Asia... and I could argue that this is even better! The service was impeccable and the place itself was beautiful and sparkling clean! Give this place a try and you won't be disappointed, I guarantee it!”
