Best Pho Place in West/Mid Valley

Heya, gang!

I have recently been introduced to Pho restaurants. I love a good soup. But since I am so new to this kind of food, I was hoping to ask you Hounders what your opinion is about the best place close to where I live (Encino). So far, all three of the Pho soups (from different places) have tasted wildly different.

Also, on the menus, the Pho is listed on its own, separate from the noodle soups. Anyone know what the difference is between Pho (which has noodles) and noodle soup?

Thank you so much!

  1. Pho So 1 (Reseda and Sherman Way)or (Victory and Sepulveda) would be my choice. There is a Pho 999 close to both locations but I always end up going back to the former.

      Pho So 1 is my favorite in that valley. Now, SGV...
