Pho and movie? what could be a better combo! We found Pho Hoang Tung in the plaza next to Silvercity Coquitlam.  The interior was small, just 8 tables! They were able to put the tables together to fit the 12 of us.  We were almost blocking the entrance!  The place seemed new and very clean.  They had lots of nice artwork up, including the picture below.  The owner explained that they bring these paintings back when they make a trip to Vietnam.

The menu had the usual dishes.  I ordered the spring roll and pho.  Regular size was 7.00 and large was 7.50.  The portions were very good. Lots of beef and noodles.  The quality of the steaks was very tender, but the beef balls were ‘mushy’.  They put lots of ginger in the broth which really enhanced the flavor, but it didn’t taste very beefy.

One thing that really stood out was the service.  They were very attentive and friendly. Everything came out quickly as well.  We had a lot of mixed reviews for this one.  Some people thought the broth was too weak.  It ranged from a 4 to a 7.5! The average score came out to be a 6.  The service was great and the food is of good quality.  They lost a few points on the broth.

I read really good reviews on Urbanspoon so I’m wondering if they were just having an off day?
