Pho Hanoi in South Portland
I was so excited to see this restaurant open in restaurant deprived Knightville. Placed a take out order last week only to discover when I got home that 1). I had been overcharged and 2). half of the ingredients listed for the dishes I ordered were missing.
Anyone else had this happen?
Nope. Consistently good for us - we've been going almost every Saturday afternoon since their first week. If anything, there is a little bit of inexperience at the FOH. Give them another chance. The fried squid app is a must, as is any pho order - which is the only main I've had so far.
Actually, we have been 4 times now. Had the squid app while waiting for take out. It was very good. Too hot to eat Pho this summer.
I totally agree about the FOH.
I must be a bit jaded as I lived in Seattle for many years and the Vietnamese restaurants there are incredible.
We will go back but they have some work to do to stay alive in this neighborhood.
My wife and I had a similar experience when ordering takeout. The list of ingredients on the menu did not match at all what we got when we got home. It was mostly a huge lack of vegetables as promised which is why we ordered it. I agree- way to hot to eat Pho this summer.
I really do wish this place lots of luck. There are alot of people who live around here who are well traveled and who have tasted the real cuisine. Why do we keep getting fooled?
