Worst Pho.. Definitely not Authentic...
I made the mistake of listening to someone who told me that the management has changed. So I decided to give this place another try. BAD MISTAKE.
At least they can say they are consistent since the Pho is still horrible. The broth is bland, the noodles are undercooked. There is no taste whatsoever to their Pho. Never again will I eat here.
The worst thing someone can say about an Asian restaurant is that the food is cooked for foreigners and is not authentic. Pho Tai is one of these restaurants.
Although I will say their frozen yogurt is really good. I agree with Adine and I will be back for the frozen yogurt but they will no longer take any more of my money and my valuable stomach space with their other nasty-ass food.
Ok first off I'm Vietnamese and from the Little Saigon area in Cali. I can say I know Pho as well as an Americans knows hamburgers, a Korean knows Kimchi, etc..
Actually this is my first review and I wasnt even planning on writing one until I saw Pho Tai get almost 5 freaking stars. I went here with my parents visiting from the Cali and we only went here because this is the only Pho restaurant in Federal Way that is open before 10am (which I can't understand since places in Cali open at 5am, afterall Pho is mostly a breakfast noodle) but that is another gripe I have.
Anyhow this place stinks. Wow I can't remember the last time I couldnt eat at least half a bowl and I WAS HUNGRY. The soup was like something I make at home (and I dont know how to cook Pho), noodles were undercooked, and they don't give you enough basil. The only thing I can say is their Tai (raw beef slices) was not bad. But I can't even give them credit for that, only the farmer who raised the cow could get that credit.
Stay away. Now I can't tell you any other place around here with good Pho since most of them stink here as well, but this PLACE IS THE WORST.
Stay home, buy some cup o' noodles and save your money.
Satisfy your craving. When you eat here you get big portions and courteous service. The atmosphere is a little trendy a little industrial and a little Asian. The Pho is very good. But I have to ask for extra cilantro. I always get a iced coffee which is delicious. Prices are fair and you get feed two for under $20.
