Not all Pho 14 restaurants are created equal. This one is a cut above. Clean, friendly and fresh Pho and all the other choices on the menu.
I visited Pho 14 last night with 2 friends while in town for business. The restaurant is located in the eminently walkable Adams Morgan neighborhood of DC. Having taken a long run earlier in the day, I was craving a bowl of noodle soup to fill me up. Pho 14 was not precisely what I was looking for. The menu offers few "authentic" items, and even their noodle soup seems to be a strange westernized amalgamation of the Vietnamese staple. Although the soup was ultimately tasty (if a bit on the salty side), I found some of the ingredients to be lacking. The brisket was thinly cut, the tripe was nearly non existant, and the round cut steak was anything but rare. That being said, considering there are no other vietnamese options in the immediate area, the restaurant isn't a huge letdown, but you may find better options (which aren't Viet) in the immediate area.
They mainly serve Vietnamese cuisine, the dishes are not bad, the rice noodles are delicious, the price is good, the environment is good, and the service attitude is also very good.
There is no need to queue up earlier, the soup base is still very good, the amount of rice noodles is not large, there are goose stalks
