Re: “Phờ Gia Restaurant & Lounge

VEGETARIANS BEWARE:
Apparently #45 with tofu and a "five spice vegetable broth" actually comes with beef broth unless you specify veggie broth- depending on who your server is.

Dining in, with their mediocre service (slow for water and sometimes forget to bring the bill), I believe I've always gotten veggie. Ordering to go- and specifying "vegetarian pho" or "#45" or even "vegetarian pho with veggie broth" has always gotten me beef broth that I have to return. But, I kept giving them another chance thinking it was a communication issue...until tonight.

My boyfriend just went back after thinking specifying the number would have been good enough because 45 is vegetarian on the menu to find out that "they always come with beef unless otherwise specified." When he pointed out that the menu says it comes with the veggie broth the waiter replied "I didn't write the menu and I always read it as optional. Everything comes with beef broth." Which is not true, because my boyfriend ordered chicken pho that came with chicken broth- and he didn't have to specify.

Language barriers are one thing, just being a jerk is another.

DO NOT come here unless you are willing to risk getting rude service and unwanted beef.
