This will be a shortened review due to the fact it was a quick meal. I sometimes do those when I’m in a hurry and when I don’t want McDonalds. Pho places in general is pretty good at doing just that. This was no exception, except for a fact that service is pretty inconsistent here. My girlfriend came back on a second time and the service was dreadfully slow. So my advice would be, go at the right time.
On the occasion that we came, it was 15% off everything in store. At the discounted price and the portion it was served, it was a pretty good deal. The bowl was huge and it was well laid out. Flavours were good, no complaints.
I believe the large was roughly $8, I’m not certain as I was in a rush. #23 had a bit of everything from beef brisket to beef balls, so I just went for that. Even though it was large, it only meant larger in bowl size and larger in noodles quantity. The meats were lacking IMO and I didn’t think it lived up to a large. The soup flavour was a bit lacking as well, it wasn’t hot enough and just didn’t have the flavours. On a second visit, my girlfriend said the soup was completely flavourless. Now that’s pretty bad for a Pho restaurant.
Overall, I thought “Delicious Pho” was mediocre at best. The ingredients were lacking in the big bowl and the soup base just needed more flavours. However, Delicious Pho is centrally located right next to Coquitlam Centre (on the Target side). They really need to work on their marketing though. On the first occasion I came, it was 15% off and just a few days later it went down to only 10%. The ambiance is quite new for the Pho that just opened up. It’s got a high ceiling and makes the place look bigger. Without the grand opening sale, the prices would be a bit more expensive than competition. It’ll be interesting on how this new Pho addition will play out, it being this close to the mall.
