Pho Ha Noi Now Open in Cupertino

We had heard very good things about Pho Ha Noi on Story Road in San Jose for a while, but we had never gone. Lucky for us, the Pho Ha Noi Cupertino location is now open.

Andy and I were able to go right at opening at 11 a.m. on a Monday during their soft opening, and there was no wait. By the time we left, the large restaurant was all filled. I have heard that during dinner time the wait can be quite long and parking challenging. 

We both ordered #13, rare flank steak, brisket and fat brisket pho.

The restaurant has a self-serve condiment bar, and we enjoyed getting just what we wanted and were able to eat.

The soups were very good - the broth flavorful and the meat very tender.

While we got the same soups, we tried both noodles - the special house-made thick noodles as well as the skinny noodles. The thick noodles were our favorite, and we'll order them again next time. 

We also ordered spring rolls, but, unfortunately, they didn't come out until we were already finished with the soup. We ended up taking them to go, and they were very good and fresh. 

We are very happy that Pho Ha Noi is now open close to home, and we'll be back soon! It's definitely our go-to pho place!
