PHOnemenal Places for Pho Around Atlanta

These places are PHOnemanal, and we are PHO real! As we enter soup season, be sure to consider trying this tasty Vietnamese dish consisting of warm broth, slurpy rice noodles, fresh herbs, and savory thinly sliced meat if you haven’t before. The national dish of Vietnam, this dish was created in part due to French influence in the region–the name pho is even thought to have originated from the French word for fire, le feu. There’s not a lot of dishes more comforting in cold weather, and there’s a number of Atlanta restaurants serving up a delicious pot of the good stuff. . Check out our list! List is in alphabetical order.

1. Dua Vietnamese

53 Broad St NW
Atlanta, GA 30303
 
Dua has been slinging great noodles, pork chops over rice, and pho for years in the Downtown Atlanta area and is a favorite amongst Georgia State University students and staff. The broth in the pho is perfectly flavorful and each bowl comes with a small plate of bean sprouts, lime, and cilantro for you to add to your soup to your taste. Their shaking beef of bun bo luc lac  is another favorite, and the menu is accessible and easy-to-understand if you’re a Vietnamese food newcomer.

2. Lee’s Bakery

4005 Buford Hwy NE
Atlanta, GA 30345

It’s the banh mis at Buford Highway’s Lee’s Bakery that are its claim to fame. Banh mis with bread that’s perfectly crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, the perfect amount of chew with each bite and with just the right amount of fillings. But their pho should also be considered when you’re here! The pho and half sandwich combo is one of the best deals in town, and the pho portions are generous, too. Try out their Vietnamese iced coffee too for a caffeine and sugar rush!

3. Le Fat

935 Marietta St NW
Atlanta, GA 30318

The interiors and ambiance of this West Midtown eatery are stunning, so if you’re in search of Vietnamese food with an elegant vibe, this is where you’ll want to be. Take a seat at the bar for an Asian inspired cocktail and take in the beautiful painted chinoiserie on the restaurant’s walls. Their beef pho is flavorful and comes with beef meatballs instead of thinly sliced meats, and you should order up the  soft shell BLT bao as well for a bit of East meets West.

The Pho at Nam Kitchen

4. NAM Kitchen

6400 Blue Stone Rd
Sandy Springs, GA 30328

This Sandy Springs spot just doesn’t get the love it deserves, and we’re tired of it. The shaking beef is phenomenal, the banh mi is out of this world, the seabass melts in your mouth, and their pho is the perfect soupy warm pick-me-up in winter weather. They’ve also got a ginormous selection of wine and sake to pick from, or you can purchase a bottle to take home. Find them in happening City Springs! Open for patio dining as well. 

 

5. Nam Phuong

4051 Buford Hwy NE
Atlanta, GA 30345

All the best pho can be found at little hole-in-the-wall spots all along Buford Highway, like ever popular Nam Phuong. Something you don’t want to miss are their crispy fish sauce wings, a bit of a cult favorite in Atlanta that delivers a tang and umami flavor that’s unlike anything else. The menu is large and can be a bit overwhelming, so we’ll give you the highlights: the salt and pepper squid, the shaking beef, and of course, the pho

A fan favorite on Buford Highway, this is THE place for a steaming hot bowl of pho if that’s what you’re in the mood for. The broth has flavor but isn’t overly salty or greasy, and the bowl is positively massive. The prices are also great here, and the spring rolls and savory peanut sauce are totally addicting.
