This is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to dine in Rochester. The food is delicious and the menu has a huge selection. It is also super affordable! I'll be back over and over again!

I have never had a bad bite here! The food is consistently excellent regardless of what we order. The service is courteous and speedy, even when they are busy. I love the smoothies, spring rolls, crepe, pad thai, pho, broken rice dishes, and lo mein, but number 67, the coconut curry chicken is my favorite.

Last time I had lunch at Pho Chau was about a year ago. But the owner recognized me right away. Staff is friendly and very polite. I ordered spring rolls as entree and fried rice with shrimp as main course. Their food is just wonderful and not at all pricey. Portions are large, a bowl of pho is really too... More

We just ate at Pho Chau and everything we had was delicious. Large menu so there is something for everyone. Portions are big. Really cooked well given the flavor and ingredients and compares well to other top restaurants in Rochester. We will be back!

2-Spring rolls @ 2.95 are a must try, fresh as it gets. My main meal was pork and mixed vegetables (#79) at $6.95 and it was great. The service was top notch as they always kept my water full and stopped back often.

It's so hard to make a choice here, the menu is so big and everything sounds so good. The Vietnamese selections are awesome. We have only chosen Thai selections once as weren't as impressed, not sure if this was a fluke or not. The pho is really excellent! My favorite are the clay pot dishes, so unique and full of...

Spring rolls were delicious, my main dish was average...the sauce did not hold it together. This is a very busy place. Next time I would try a soup.

I always try to find a ethnic restaurant which come to the real thing. This Vietnamese restaurant has it. Good food, good service and reasonable. Have to try it.
