    pho doesn’t rhyme with so. It is more like “fuh’

    exactly what i was thinking for months.
    I think its a very akward name, especially for a Jewish Restaurant with CH Hashgacha. I’m glad im not alone.

    Good luck though, it looks like a great menu,

    Great! My thoughts on he hechsher:
    Guest
    Great! My thoughts on he hechsher:

    I’m happy that this is opening.
    About the hechsher complaints:
    Every single hechsher has politics attached. Of you say this one does as well, I’d belive it, although I don’t know of any myself.
    One thing I do know, I trust rabbi Braun’s hechsher standards fully! More machmir than most!
    So why wouldnt you eat there because of some side politics that have nothing to do with Rabbi Braun’s high standards of hashgacha?

    Phô Real!

    I thought that an eatery with ‘noodles’ in its name would provide good tasting, well portioned and affordable meals, the kind which you might bring home for the family when cooking wasn’t an option. I mean why else would you put ‘noodle’ in your name. But apparently, noodle joint is modern high class, and this is another food provider who intends to expand our food minds, because you can never have too many food experiences because you only live once and if having great food and in great variety isn’t living than what is life? Will wait for the next… Read more »

    As fsr as I know the place is under the supervision of the Crown Heights Beis Din and not under an individual rabbi.

    fluorescent lighting?

    fluorescent lighting?

    A few of the recently-opened Crown Heights restaurants (the new sushi place, Prime sandwich) look lovely. But like a fair-sized subset of the human population, I find harsh lighting to be off-putting. So I have yet to walk into the aforementioned eateries. Phomen seems like an interesting, yummy introduction (despite the unfortunate moniker), I just hope there won’t be harsh LED or fluorescent lighting to keep me away. Good luck!

    Been waiting more than 15 years for kosher pho

    I first learned about pho somewhere around 2000 when it became big in America, but have never seen it offered at any kosher restaurant, and it looks too complicated for me to try at home. I once knew a Vietnamese giyores and thought of asking her whether she made it, but could never gather up the chutzpah. Looking forward to finally trying it.

    With all the parsley, bok choy and other vegetables to check I would have preferred the OK or CHK to supervise the kashrout!

    Seating and Lighting

    I really hope that there will be floor seating. It bothers me that all these restaurants are using chairs and tables. Without them you can bring down your pricing in overhead costs and create a great ambiance for your customers. Also I agree with the LED lighting. an authentic experience would be great if we could have kerosene lamps which is softer on the eyes and the fumes make the food taste better. About the hecsher, don’t even get me started.

    So excited! Finally a Fleishig restaurant with a trustworthy hashgacha!

    The trolls here commenting on the hechsher aren’t the type of people who eat in restaurants. More like eating cold Pizza in their grandma’s basement and commenting on stupid politics.

    A reliable hechsher

    A reliable hechsher

    To all the peanut gallery regarding the hechsher… Like it or not, there was a Din Torah in which Rabbi Braun and Schwei need to be involved with the Hechsher of CHK period. Both sides signed and submitted their acceptance of the Psak of the Beis Din of 5 members at whatever the Psak would be. It is unfortunate that people deny the outcome of the Din Torah and go against the ruling of the 5 member Zabla Beis Din! This matter is quite severe, see CHoshen Mishpat chapter 26. Until things are settled, Rabbi Braun and Schwei’s hechsher is… Read more »

    Will there be gluten free noodles?

    well, i dunno
    Guest
    well, i dunno

    when the newness of the place wears off are there really enough lovers of this cuisine to keep the business going? my suggestion: Fill a hole that carries more of the possibility of long term success. an excellent vegetarian restaurant serving fabulous “pain- to- prepare” food would be a good place to start. it might even draw clientele from outside of the neighborhood. i’m not talking about yet another kosher milchikeh eatery; G-d knows there’s no shortage of those around, here or elsewhere for that matter.
