This restaurant is close to Duke University and seems to be popular with the students. We tried to get there early and beat the noon rush. We found the restaurant clean and well laid out. The staff all wore mask and was friendly to deal with. The menu was large and easy to read. There was plenty of tasty looking choices and we went with Pho chicken plus streamed dumpling. The food came quickly and was very good. The portion size was very generous, making our lunch very affordable.

Great deal. Loved the large poke bowl. Awesome. Only suggestion is they have hoisin sauce but no soy sauce. Recommend a couple other sauces.

I had the satisfied lunch with my coworkers. We explored Bun Bo Hue and Bun Thit Nuong. BBH was good. But BTN, I personally think that the fish sauce should be improved to meet the amazing “nước chấm”!!! (*) Update in 2020: I am so happy that they opened and allowed to dine-in. Most of asian restaurants would not let sit and enjoy the fresh, hot noodles. I recommend Pho and Pho only.

Needed a bowl of Pho to warm up my bones. Light broth and decent size. However they have gone up on the price. It is now $10.95 but all toppings are the same price. (Yay meatballs!)

Good pho place near Duke. It's better to have one here than drive far to the Chapel Hills

The bahn mi sandwich was really good. Not perfectly authentic but damn tasty. The staff are super friendly. The pad Thai was pretty oily but also very tasty. My daughter devoured it! There is plenty of indoor seating and tons of outdoor seating that wrap around the restaurant. The restaurant was super clean. Parking is easy.

This is my go to place for a nice bowl of Pho whenever I visit Durham on business. The only bad thing is parking limited since it so close to Duke.

Every clean and nice restaurant! You need to place your order at the register and then based on the order number they get it to the table. Me and my husband ordered a pho and a banh mi sandwich. The banh mi was very flavorful and delicious. The pho broth was ok. Everything was served hot. I would definitely visit it again to try the poke.

We stopped at the Pho and Poke House on our way to Asheville. The parking was easy (there's a big lot adjacent to the restaurant) and the service was really friendly. It's the kind of place where you walk up and order off a menu behind the counter and then get a number for your table rather. We liked the informality as well as the outdoor seating. Though we ate at a non-peak time (3:00pm) our food came quickly. We ordered on serving of the pork summer rolls with peanut sauce and we each had a bowl of chicken pho. The chicken was of high quality. The pho could have used a tad more salt but overall it was great! We'd eat here again.

Very solid poké place. Everything is fresh and tasty. I love their wasabi aoli. Pho is decent but maybe a bit bland. Prices are reasonable. Outdoor seating.

Was surprised to see the variety of Vietnamese dishes on the menu. We got a poke bowl and the crispy noodles with seafood (one of their special of the day Vietnamese dishes). The poke bowl was good. The crispy noodles were surprisingly authentic tasting! The prices were ok.

This is place is so good for a quick lunch that I don’t want to tell anyone about it. Get my lunch take out from them about once a week for the last year. Great tofu banh mi and fresh ingredients in the poke. Usually pretty quick service.

Small family run shop, and I loved it. It's clean and friendly. They have a mix of Vietnamese food and poke bowls. I had the poke bowl and thought it was pretty good. Would come back any time to try the pho!

The chicken pho and the green tea were great but the restaurant was like a meat locker. Please consider your parton's and turn on the heat.

My first experience was very nice. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. My food was done very quickly and tasted delicious. I had beef pho it was a little heavier on the black pepper than I am used to but it was still very tasty all the same. To sum it up, great grab and go place to get some good food at a reasonable price. I wish they would open one down the street from my house.😁

When we visited Durham, we ALWAYS come here and we dream of it when we're not there. The make-your-own poké bowl is something we've not experienced elsewhere and they are amazing and the bowls are huge! The banh minh sandwiches are also excellent. Highly recommend!
