This is probably the best pho I have ever had. We ordered shrimp pho, beef pho, and vegetarian pho, and the shrimp and beef were absolutely outstanding. Don't get the beef pho mixed up with the beef ball soup, though, because someone in our party...More

We have tried pho restaurants all across Boston (and major cities across the US) and Pho Minh Ky is still at the top of our best pho. Why they arent on the best of Boston top 10 is a mystery. The broth is better then...More

The restaurant is clean and bright. The staff is fast and efficient. This is one of the best restaurants downtown with a lower price point. The menu is large. Most importantly, the Pho is fantastic. The best that I've had. It is worth a trip.
