Oklahoma City has a thriving Vietnamese community, and within the Asian District are several wonderful restaurants that specialize in the tantalizing soup known as pho (sounds like “fuh”).

Mr. Pho

What works: You get fresh and authentic dishes.
What needs work: The curry dishes lack the “wow” factor.
Tip: Don't wait for your server to take your payment; do that at the front cash register.

Golden god

Take your time picking a menu item you like — there’s plenty to choose from.

Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Golden Phoenix, 2728 N. Classen Blvd., has a menu that requires time, patience and a spirit of adventure. Not that you have to try Top Snail with Coconut Juice ($8.95), but it’s there if you want to.

Don’t pho around

It’s still chilly outside, and now is the best time for sitting down to a steaming bowl of delicious Vietnamese-style noodle soup.

It’s great to go back to a favorite Asian District noodle shop or to discover a new one that is probably just around the corner. No doubt, the metro area has a wealth of places to get your pho fix.
