this is the best viet restaurant i've ever been to. the food is great and the prices are reasonable, defitnately worth your money. it has a very clean and pleasant environment. the service is good, and the staff is very friendly and always willing to help you. i've tried almost everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. i especially recommend trying the bun bo hue and the bun rieu cua. overall, great place for everyone to eat. i highly recommend bringing friends and family for a great evening out to dinner. you won't be disappointed!

I just moved to the lower east side, and I've tried 4, Pho places in the area....and none of them compare to this place. They are so friendly too! The woman who takes orders in the front of the restaurant answered all of my questions on the phone about 5 different dishes! I eat #15 Pho Tai, 2-4 times a week. For 5 bucks, you cannot beat it. You will crave #15.

I'm 100% Vietnamese from CA so I know good, authentic Viet food when I eat it and Pho Tu Do is not. Like others, I was impressed by the number of positive reviews so I thought I give it a try. First bad sign upon being seated are the Chinese speaking wait staff. Secondly, the large variety of dishes on the menu only meant that you are trading in quality for quantity. I ordered the typical shrimp spring rolls. The rolls themselves were actually good because they use leafy greens instead of cheap sliced iceberg with most other Viet restaurants, but it's the sauce that was off. You know Chinese are cooking Viet food when the simpliest, most common dip can't be made right. Long story longer, for those non-Viet food connoisseurs, who don't know any better, I'm sure Pho Tu Do satisfies the general cravings for a decent bowl of Pho. Truth is, I have yet to find a Viet restaurant that gets my "two thumbs up" so in the meantime, it's back to Thai Son.

my coworker and i were here last week. it was great!! we both ordered small noodles, but the bowl was big and i can't imagine what the large would be like. the noodles were $5 and the appetizer was about $10. i can't emphasize enough how much value you derive out of this place! just don't expect much from their atmosphere. very highly recommended. (afterall, i am still raving about it)

Excellent food and great value. Not a "scene', so you won't find any 'hipsters here, just great Vietnamese food.
