Pho To Chau Vietnamese Restaurant – Honolulu, HI

This is supposedly the best Pho place in Honolulu’s Chinatown district. The restaurant is nestled in between 2 other Pho places, but clearly stands out from the rest. If you’re having a hard time finding the place, look for the line outside. After a 45 minute wait outside and another 15 minutes to order, the pho finally arrived. I have to say that the clear broth lived up to its expectation, but not much different from the pho places in LA. After careful observation, I found out that the family restaurant is run by a 4-man crew (2 in the kitchen, 1 that takes the orders and serves the food, and 1 that cleans the tables and seats the customers). I couldn’t figure out why there were so many empty seats while I was waiting outside only until I stepped inside where I realized the wow-wow-west style restaurant lacked employees and efficiency. The restaurant is open from 8:30am to 2:30pm daily. I’ve been told to expect to wait in line at all hours.
