Pho 96

2990 W. Mississippi Ave. Denver, CO 80219 | Southwest Denver | 303-568-9262

Location Description:

The owners of Pho 96 run a quiet, tidy operation. Subdued and polite aromas welcome you at the door, while the menu is precise and well-edited, with four brief sections dividing all dishes into noodle soups, noodle bowls, rice plates and appetizers. A theme of restraint runs through the menu, but tabletop condiment caddies offer fish sauce, housemade chile sauce and the ubiquitous sriracha and hoisin bottles to add a little extra brightness, salt or umami to the otherwise excellent textures of all the dishes. The gracious and genuinely friendly service also adds a layer of warmth to any meal.
