  • Food here is pretty good ... they have the WORST servers I have ever come across. I come to your business and you treat me like a burden? WTF, I've been here many times and always tip 15-20% ... excuse me, I USED to tip 15-20% ... now, NOTHING, buncha jerks. If you want good food and excellent service go to Naysa Fusion, it's pretty close to Pho, the service is top notch, and the food is awesome. If you want to deal with a buncha assclowns then definitely go to Pho, it's servers are all a bunch of inconsiderate lowlifes.

  • Located in downtown St. Catharines, the only pho place I know in St. Catharines in general (at least to my own knowledge). Relatively cheap option, average food. Not terrible but have definitely had better when compared to other places back in the Toronto area. Fulfills a craving though so it's adequate.

  • Order: Chef's special (or whatever it's called with a bit of everything) medium bowl pho

  • Soup is amazing - hearty bowls and they let you take home what you can't finish! Spring rolls are great! Pad Thai very nice.

    The service could definitely be better. Nothing makes you feel welcomed like happy, smiling servers. You don't get this here, although the owner is very nice.

  • Order: spring rolls, pad thai, tea

  • My cousin brought me last year for my birthday and oh my goodness, it was amazing! I loved the food! We just ordered a bunch of different things to share, and everything we tried was DELICIOUS! I really enjoyed myself, and the food!! Everyone was very friendly and kind, and they had really quick service which was great! Everything came to our table fresh, hot and delicious, and we didn't have to wait long to get it. I love Vietnamese food, and this is by far the best place I have been in a long time, and at the best price! I highly recommend it to all my friends!

  • Order: A lot of food!

  • We eat Vietnamese VERY often, and have eaten at all of the different options in the area and some abroad as well (including Vietnam). We have been all about Mai Vi for years as it is very good, but Pho Dau Bo is the new "best vietnamese restaurant in town" in my opinion. The brisket is much more lean & tasty than anywhere else around. There are many more beef balls in the pho as well. They offer free jasmine tea upon arrival which is also a nice touch. The spring rolls are comparible but they offer two separate dipping sauce bowls which is nice for me because I add a generous amount of Siracha to mine rendering it too hot for many of my lunch companions. The staff are always friendly and very efficient. All and all, Pho Dau Bo is the best Vietnamese food in the region, it is cheaper and it is lightening fast if you are on a short lunch break. Well done!!! Keep up the great work!!!

  • Order: Large shrimp and pork spring rolls, Pho with rare brisket and beef balls

  • Good stuff. Pho was good, and the spring rolls were good too.

    Service was quick and friendly.

    Will definitely go back for what seems to be the best pho in Niagara now.

  • Order: pho tai chin, deep fried spring rolls.

  • Quick, fresh, delicious noodle soup, We usually order one small and one large noodle soup. The sprouts. basil, coriander and lime wedge garnishes are a must to add to the soup along with the spices on the table. In the winter they offer free hot tea and in the summer you get free ice tea.

    You can be in and out in less than 35 minutes, spend less than $12.00 and leave full and satisfied.

  • Order: Large noodle soup with beef slices, small plain noodle soup
