I'm updating my top 3 pho across USA with this place. The broth is very good and the pho is cooked perfectly too. The service is fast and friendly. The dishes came out fast and fresh unlike some Pho places that took a while to bring the pho out so the pho became too soft and stick together. The price... More

You'll never go thirsty here! They refill your water glass before you can barely drink a 4th of it. But their prices are great and their food is yummy and fresh. I come here for the vermicelli dishes and love V5, the grilled pork with egg rolls. The spring rolls (without the pork) are also my favorite appetizer! These guys... More

I stopped by this restaurant because I love Pho.

What a broth, my goodness! I was fighting a cold and knew this... More

While staying at the Rancho Bernardo Inn, my husband and I were craving a walk and a night away from the business conference dinner at the Inn. We set out on foot- it is about 1.5 miles from the Inn. Turned out to be a great choice! We had an order and a half of egg rolls and Bun with... More

Located in beautiful Rancho Bernardo just off I-15 Pho Ca Dao offers a clean and nicely decorated atmosphere to enjoy truly outstanding Vietnamese cuisine. The menu includes all the popular soups and plates. The service was very good and the prices were surprisingly low. I had one of the combination bowls and the size of the portion was huge and...

Pho Ca Dao is located in the Mercado Shopping Center on the side nearest to highway 5. It is a bit tucked away so you have to go into the mall to find it. They serve standard Vietnamese fast food - Pho, broken rice, rice vermicelli etc. The food is pretty good but nothing special. I actually like the other... More
