    I recently visited this Vietnamese noodle shop and had a disappointing experience with the service. The restaurant wasn’t very busy, but I only received the bowl of noodles I ordered and was never served the water I requested. Although service was lacking, I still left a 15% tip, which in hindsight, might not have been warranted given the level of service provided. I hope this feedback can help improve the service for future customers.

    A small semi fast food style Vietnamese restaurant. You can tell the majority are local customers. Price is reasonable and taste as usual Vietnamese Pho.
    Egg rolls were pretty good. Wrap with lettuce, carrot, cilantro and dip in fish sauce. Good combination that enhance all flavors.
    Even a semi fast food style restaurant, customer service was friendly.
    There was no tips section when process the credit cards machine. Then we put 18% tip on the table.

    Came here for lunch because I saw it was a new pho place and it had good reviews. Their parking lot is quite big and we had no trouble getting a spot. When we inside though, it was already almost full but luckily there was one table left. However, the staff took a while to clean up the table and seat us with the menus.

    I ordered the P11, the well done beef brisket and beef meatball (12.99). You can choose between thin or thick noodles. I got the thin ones. The food was served after like 10 minutes and they give you the bean sprouts and other veggies add to your soup. The noodles were a bit clumpy when I got them so I had to stir a bit. The soup was alright, not the best pho soup I had. As for the meat, the brisket was a bit tough to chew but not too bad. The meatball was alright as well since it has tendons inside. For the price, they were quite generous with the amount of noodles but the meat quality was a bit lacking. Guess you get what you pay for.

    I have tasted better beef pho so probably won't be eating here again even if I am in the area. They do have great prices for pho though for those who want to eat a reasonably priced decent pho. If you want higher quality, there are better ones.

    Food was good. All they specialize in is Phở, for the most part.
    Staff were friendly. But when we ordered the same menu item, one big one large, only one came out. We asked what size this first bowl was. They didn't know. When the second came out, then we barely noticed there was slightly less in the second bowl, but it was like ½inch height's content noticeable. Next time, either bring the stuff out for the table together, OR better yet, have different bowls (shapes, color, whatever) to note the different sizes. Otherwise, I thought the noodles were fresh, meat was fresh, the broth was flavorful with a slightly sweet hint. Plus they were very generous with the meat contents, which I can't complain.
    However we wanted to share this awesomeness with my family and ordered to-go. But ended up waiting for a while. Turns out it was already sitting at the pickup area --for how long, I don't know. When I brought the to-go, everything inside was soggy for waiting that long.
    I think the process could've been streamlined with better communication between the front and back.
    But still, good food, good people.

    Pho 99 in El Monte has quickly won over a dedicated following with its genuine Vietnamese pho offerings and unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction. The genuine flavors of the high-quality broth and meats have earned acclaim for their unique profiles, elevating the classic Vietnamese noodle soup experience. Notably, Pho 99's signature sweet broth renders additional hoisin sauce unnecessary. Their skillfully brewed iced tea also garners special recognition for its harmonious taste.

    While some patrons have voiced suggestions for more generous meat portions and consistency in ingredient quality, the consensus remains optimistic that Pho 99 has the potential to rise to the ranks of premier pho establishments once these initial concerns are addressed. The restaurant's launch day brought to light some areas for improvement, such as hotter pho, prompt service of accompaniments, and a more transparent broth.

    Despite these points, my recent visit included a positive experience with the oxtail pho, though the meat was a tad tough, lacking the desired tenderness. Here's to hoping that Pho 99 will refine these aspects and continue to delight its patrons with even better offerings. I like their ambiance with simple but clean environment.

    Having Pho 99 as a potential alternative to the perennially busy Golden Deli is an exciting prospect. It's likely that Pho 99 will consider expanding its menu to include a variety of Vietnamese dishes like spring rolls, egg rolls, and vermicelli salad. Offering these additional options could make it an even more appealing destination for those seeking a diverse range of authentic Vietnamese cuisine.
