My wife and I and my son selected this restaurant for dinner this Sunday night. We arrived just after 6:30pm to quite a full restaurant and were quickly seated at one of two empty tables against the wall on the left side of the restaurant. Our orders were taken within 10 minutes of sitting down. I ordered the rice combination,... More

Exceptional. There are always more Vietnamese people here than any other nationality. That's says a lot about an ethnic restaurant.

It has been far too long since I last tried Pho Real but I have a wicked cold and needed some power soup and this place did not disappoint. At first I always thing it's a tad on the expensive side (for soup), but you can really taste (feel) the quality come through as you sip (slurp). Today I got... More

Looked this place up while staying in town: reviews were good so we tried it out. AMAZING! Go get you sum! Grilled pork spring rolls! Traditional Pho! Lemongrass chicken! Good food, good service, and I look forward to coming back on my trips to the Queen City.

My wife and I enjoyed a great vegan meal here for my 45th birthday. Super friendly staff and great food at really good price. Our waiter Domino, was very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu offering suggestions as well as answering any questions we had on types of food ingredients and an explanation of some other menu items.

This is a restaurant my fiancé and I visited regularly. We love the pork grilled spring rolls with the peanut sauce (yum), the pho bowls and the bun thit nuong. That's our go-to meal. I will say the couple of times I strayed away from our go-to, I have not been thrilled, but for the food they do well, it... More

The broth seemed watered down. It seemed they catered the taste to suit American taste buds. Did not have an authentic Vietnamese taste

Whenever we fly out of Charlotte airport we come here to eat. We know good pho, and this place really hits the spot. The broth is always great. They also have our favorite Bun bo Hue- a spicy noodle soup with thick noodles and tendon. If you like pho you have to try this place. Definitely the best we've had... More

I've tried many Vietnamese phos in Charlotte and many are very good. But overall this is my favorite because the broth is full of beef & spice flavors. If you're a spicy peppers fan ask for the chili paste - it's not on the table, just standard sriracha. I never get past the pho and the very fresh spring rolls,... More
