This was our second visit-the remodeled interior is peaceful, hip and trendy. Many corners including the spring roll bar (how clever is that), bar area and tables. The menu is fusion with a Vietnamese emphasis, a pad thai on the menu. Creative pairing of fresh food, artful to look at and delicious all at the same time. We had Pho,... More

What was a small friendly facility last year has become a remodeled trendy location. We felt the change was not for the better as they seemed to want to turn tables and acted with little personality.

Don't be put off by location. It's tucked away in a typical American street style complex of little shops. Food was very yummy. Pho was pretty authentic. But Ask for the brown & chili sauce because they don't serve it with the Pho. Service was good and our waiter was very smiley. Long wait on a Thursday night and surprisingly... More

The name of the restaurant suggests that their speciality is pho. But it's more of fusion Vietnamese. It has nice ambience & friendly staff. Good prompt service . Pho is not their strong point---the soup is too sweet (?added sugar)----not the beef bone broth that you can taste from 8 hours of boiling . No tripe or tendon like other... More

Quality Asian food is hard to find the the Coachella Valley. However, Pho 533 in Palm Springs tops the list. The newly expanded dining room includes a small full bar and comfortable seating. Service is simple but quick, with a professional wait staff. The menu ranges from traditional pho noodles to fine chef prepared specialties including traditional Pad Thai with... More

Pho was remodeled during the summer of 2016, and now features a new bar area, a new spring roll bar, and an expanded seating area with new tables and chairs. There are even some nice couches in the bar area. The menu has also been updated and we found several new creative dishes to try. Tip: Best to get a... More

This restaurant is hidden at the end of Smoketree Shopping Center but that's what makes it so special. You enter into a modern and sophisticated yet simple dining room with a mixture of tables, high top communal tables and counters. The servers are warm, expedious and attentive. The menu is a mixture of pho and other southeast Asian temptations. There... More

Came into town after a long drive. Hotel suggested pho533 a few blocks away. The pho with meatballs and chicken was a perfect pick me up. Place had a nice buzz a variety of clientele, a good omen for a house hunt here in The Valley.
