Pho Shop review image

Pho Shop

If you’re looking for pho on the Upper East Side, your best option is Pho Shop. The chicken pho is especially good, and it happens to be our favorite soup on the UES that doesn’t have matzoh balls in it. Although the beef pho is also great, and, if you want a sandwich, feel free to get a bahn mi. The ones here are the perfect size (not so big that you can’t take a good bit, not so small that it makes you angry), the bread is good and crispy, and there’s plenty of flavor. The space itself is pleasant in a generic sort of way, and there’s plenty of seating. And you should also know that all of this food delivers pretty well.
