Pho 2000, Ho Chi Minh City: 13 reviews and 23 photos

Well, this restaurant is in the Lonely Planet on HCMC and it seems Bill Clinton was slurping Vietnamese noodles (Pho Bo) here when he visited Vietnam. The walls certainly provided evidence of his visit. I had my first meal at this restaurant, simply it was very near to Ben Thanh market and I was famished. The restaurant is clean and the staff wore uniform so it certainly looked more hygienic than the street stalls. Service however was a little lacklustre (maybe I wasn't looking that presidential), my several attempts to catch the waiters attention was largely ignored. The food is passable (I had better pho elsewhere eventually).

Favorite Dish: I had a hot steaming bowl of pho bo and one plate of goi cuon (fried spring rolls). Edible, reasonably tasty, hygienic looking but not oh-my-god outstanding.
