      Im a bit confused by all of the 5 star reviews here? Don't get me wrong, there wasnt anything bad about this place, but the pho is just average. Im fairly certain the broth is just from a can. The brisket was pretty good! Overall though this place is just "meh".

      Very very tasty and SOOOO MUCH FOOD. The flavor is great to be honest it was the first experience having pho so of course I noticed the great reviews and ratings here. I can say it was delicious, fresh, hot, and the smell alone was intoxicating. We took more than half to go and they topped them off with more of that tasty broth! Will be returning for sure!

      I could eat their Vegan pho every day. It's absolutely delicious. It's hard to find good pho, especially coming from a city where the food was very diverse. This is by far the best pho you can get in the Raleigh-Durham area. Summer rolls are good as well. I also appreciate their vegan options!

      I go to this place w my boyfriend almost once a week bc it's so good lmaooo i get the rare beef pho and he gets the chicken pho. Their portions are huuuuge and I havent had a bad bowl there yet. One downside is that they're sometimes bad w refills and if you're eating a bowl of pho that has lots of sodium or if you adjust your soup to be spicy that can be annoying, but it just depends on who's working there that day. There's this one sweet girl with glasses and another guy who have excellent customer service! The waitress knows that I get chili oil for my pho so she'll bring it out before I even have to ask her and these two employees will check up on you frequently!

      I eat here often and it always hits. Their vegan and vegetarian options are excellent. Timeliness on pick-up is quick too.

      I love Pho and this is some of the best I've had. Ample serving, fresh, delicious, generous portion of protein - I got chicken. Service was great, comfortable, relaxed atmosphere, budget- friendly. The only negative - a subtle, strange smell when I walked in, maybe cleaning products, almost walked out - glad I didn't! By the time I sat down and was waiting for my food, I didn't notice any odor. Food, Service, Ambiance - Five Stars all around. Fabulous - I'll be back!!

      Anise Pho was rated North Carolina's top spot for pho according to a 2020 Yelp Blog post so I knew it had to be good. We tried a few different menu items including their new appetizer, boba teas, cocktails, entrees and more. We were thoroughly impressed and left feeling super full and happy. The way it should be!

    Our server was very kind and attentive. Since I had never been here before, he helped me pick out some menu items and told me what some of his favorites were. My partner and I ended up going with the shrimp and tofu summer rolls, shrimp shumai, and the new rocket shrimp egg rolls. To drink we ordered a couple of Mojitos, the coffee milk tea and Thai tea (both with boba). The mojitos were a little too sweet for our liking but good, nonetheless. I am a huge boba girl so the Thai Tea was definitely a favorite of mine. For our entrees, we went with the combination pho and the banh mi with their new premium pork sausage. Both were very good! I'm used to ordering combination pho that comes with tripe and tendon, which I love, and was a little sad to see Anise Pho didn't carry these options, but the rare steak, brisket, and meatballs this pho did come with were tasty. The broth passed the test of standing on its own before hoisin or sriracha and that's how you know it's a good bowl of pho.

    Glenwood South is a BUSY place to be, especially on weekend nights, so I'm sure this place fills up quick but it wasn't too bad on a Wednesday when we went. Only a few other tables were sat and they had lots of takeout orders. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone near the area looking for a good meal before a night out, or even just a good meal in general. I can't wait to come back here again soon!

      As someone visiting from Dallas with lots of Vietnamese restaurants located nearby, I found the pho here to be okay.

    I love strong spices in my broth, and the pho here didn't reach my preferences. However, the meats are great and service is patient and friendly - why I bumped from 3 to 4 stars.

      I tried the special combo beef pho tonight and the broth was just so bland. Luckily the to-go meal came with a container of hoisin sauce/sriracha which I used to dip the meat into. Those sauces helped add some flavor to the meal. Just a disappointing pho in my opinion.

      Since moving back to North Carolina from California last year, I hadn't been anywhere in Raleigh for Pho. I brought a friend, who never had Pho before, and wanted to make sure I took him to a place that was highly recommended among other Yelpers, so I came here!
    I ordered the special combo beef pho with vegetable egg rolls as an appetizer. I always add a little extra sauce and toppings to (season) my pho but the flavor was good and the distribution of noodles to meat were even.

      I can't believe it took me this long to try this place. Their pho is outstanding and the Bang Mi is amazing. The Banh Mi comes with a side of fries - one of the best fries I've had and the seasoning was so so good and the fries were super crunchy. I have no idea what the sauce was that came with the fries but it was pure Perfection. And the prices were very reasonable. We also tried their chicken dumplings for appetizer which were tasty. The service was outstanding. Overall I had an amazing experience. Plenty of free parking options. Will be back for sure!

      Tonight we decided to go for Vietnamese food. I'm so glad we chose this restaurant. We started with 2 bubble teas which were delicious. We had the spring rolls and shumai next. Both we're outstanding. Loved the peanut sauce. My wife had the Salad Noodle Bowl with BBQ pork. It was really fresh and my wife loved it. I got the Pho with brisket. It was absolutely amazing. The flavors were perfect.
    I would be remiss if I didn't mention the great staff. They were attentive and very friendly.
    We will definitely be eating here many times in the future. A must go.

      The service was great, food came out warm & swiftly. The pho soup was seasoned perfectly; loved the crunch of the pot stickers and the boba tea wasn't too sweet. Loved the experience. I could tell it was a good spot when it was packed during a pandemic (yes, they take all CDC protocols).

      We took advantage of the beautiful weather and Dine Out Downtown today. A two-block section of Glenwood was blocked, and tables were set in the street for diners. We walked up and down and settled on this place for lunch. We ordered chicken potstickers and bowls of pho. Oh, my! The service was fantastic, and the food was wonderful. My shrimp pho had ten big shrimp, and I took half of it home for lunch tomorrow. My friend's chicken and vegetable pho was loaded with thinly-sliced chicken and chunky vegetables. Make sure you check in for two dollars off the potstickers!

      Banh mi is delicious as well as the spring rolls. Plenty of vegan and non vegan options.

      I really applaud the bánh mì here. You can tell the bread was made with love, and it comes with all the fixings and good flavor. I also think it was very cool and creative how they added french fries as a side dish, I don't think I have seen that before, but it kinda makes sense in that bánh mì has french influences and french fries are... french?

    The pho was above average! I give it a 7/10 out of the world's pho's I have had. It has more fat than some places (which is a good thing), but it was still too clean for me. Meat was above average in portion (7/10 as well) than many places in the US. Flavor was good (7/10), but not astounding. But a pho that can make 7/10 means it's a 10/10 as far as North Carolina goes!
