There is a Vietnamese restaurant located on Main Street in Salt Lake City at 1766 South which is a popular place to have pho and other Vietnamese dishes. It is in what was once a brick home and is now converted into a restaurant.

Pho has become a popular noodle dish in America. There are many pho restaurants in the Salt Lake City area. Pho Tay Ho is owned by a Vietnamese woman who is the cook. Her daughter works with her in the restaurant. Her other daughter is Rosie Nguyen, who helped out in the restaurant but who left her job at Channel 4 News recently to take a position in Houston.

Phở (pronounced fa) is a Vietnamese soup dish consisting of broth, rice noodles, herbs, and meat (usually beef) and sometimes chicken. Pho is a popular food in Vietnam where it is served in households, street stalls, and restaurants countrywide. Pho is considered Vietnam's national dish. [Wikipedia]

The Pho Tay Ho restaurant was originally opened in 1995 on the first floor of an apartment complex in Salt Lake City. That rental agreement ended in 2008. The new location a year later became the house on Main street.

They have been featured in newspapers and on television. They have been praised for their authentic Vietnamese food and reasonable prices. They also do take out orders as well.

They were negatively impacted by COVID and are short staffed so their hours have changed somewhat. They are open most days from 11 am to 3:30 pm for lunch and 5 pm to 7:30 pm for dinner. They are closed on Mondays. [Check the website or phone for definite hours.]

Pho Tay Ho in Salt Lake City is recommended for anyone looking for good Vietnamese food.
