Pho 88


Probably the most loved Vietnamese restaurant in Toronto and quite possibly the best.

Deliciously prepared meals prepared at high speeds will please your hunger and your wallet guaranteed every time!  Now be cautious about portion control especially when ordering an extra large noodle soup which could easily be enough for two.


Courteous owners and manageable waiting staff creates a truly fast paced eating environment that will cycle through the long line ups (especially on weekends and weekday lunch times) which makes it worth the wait.  The eating area is quite cramped and loud when at full capacity but the meals will surely satisfy even when eating in a slightly confined space and be sure to arrive a bit earlier to find parking.

Recommendations:  Deep fried Spring rolls, Noodle Soup (#101), Lemon grass chicken/beef rice.

  1. Is this a chain?

    • Yes and no…
      I think this one is independent and there are other Pho88s that are chained.

      But it’s always jam packed!

  2. This is my favorite pho venue. I’ve been coming here for YEARS (sometimes 3 or 4 times in a week if I get that craving). I have never come when it wasn’t packed with people. The owner is always very nice.The broth is fantastic and the portions are the biggest of any of the pho places that I’ve been to for the price. I also enjoy the pork chops.

    This place is the best for a late night snack. I think they close at around 1am.

    • The owners are super friendly!

      The husband (assuming they’re married) always shakes my hand when we go eat there. 😛
