good Pho around Carroll Gardens/Ft. Greene/Park Slope area?

I have fairly recently discovered Pho, and have a favorite place in (Manhattan) Chinatown, but would love to find a place near me (Ft. Greene) where I could get delivery or ride my bike to for take out.

Anyone know of any good (or better yet, great) Pho places around Ft. Greene/Park Slope/Boreum Hill/Downtown Brooklyn/etc.?

Thanks in advance

  1. The simple answer to your question in that no such place exists BUT if you were willing to ride your bike just a bit further south into Sunset Park, you're sure to find good Pho. We usually get our Pho fix at Pho Tay Ho in Bensonhurst, but I'm sure a search of this board (or a suggestion from a more knowledgeable poster) will find you a good selection of places in SP.

      Listen to bobjbkln, there are several vietnamese joints in sunset park's chinatown, they are supposed to be very good. Have yet to try any pho there...

    2. If getting *really* good pho is important to you I would suggest making a trip into the city. However if you do find something of note, please post it here.

      1. sorry to bum u out but i dont know of any place serving PHO at all, let alone a good one...not in BK. damn. oh well.

          that is what i fear. i know there are no places right around here in ft. greene, but i was hoping maybe there was something on smith st., 5th ave, etc.

        2. The place across 4th Ave from Century 21 dept store (86th St?) is okay - that would be Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, a nice bike ride away. I like the one with seafood . . .

          or is that everything tastes great when you're exhausted from Xmas shopping?

          There's a Viet place on Fifth Ave in Park Slope, but I can't get past the prices compared to better food in Chinatown

            That's Mekong on 5th & Garfield. Right near me, but I've never tried it. They do serve pho, though.

            There are probably 3-5 places that serve it in Sunset Park, but I can't remember one that blew me away.


          2. There is a place called Mai on Altlantic near 4th ave. But it is kind of pan-asian, and though their pho was ok, it just isn't like ctown...
