    Great food. Their ingredients are really fresh, their food tastes healthy.

  • 2 miruna // Aug 28, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    The best pho I've had, and the chicken curry is delicious. The decor is very tasteful, too.

  • 3 Neenah1 // Aug 29, 2009 at 5:07 am

    This place is a little too pricey for noodle soups( aka Pho). The portions are a little bit too small and the service was …eh… Ok. However, the sandwiches r pretty good.

  • 4 Sunrise/Sunset // Oct 6, 2009 at 1:27 am

    Wish I could get beyond the name of the place. Anyone who's been to Asia and had the misfortune of coming upon the delicacy of monkey brain–served with the live monkey chattled in the middle of a table for the diners to partake of–oh, god. Change the name of this restaurant.

    How can people complain about the price of the pho at this place when pho in the ID can go upwards to $7.95? The Monkey Bridge's beef pho is pretty good and filling for under $6. When the weather is this cold, pho is the only thing that soothes me. It is nicely seasoned and the bean sprouts are always fresh and crunchy.

    love this place. pho is really good. egg rolls are excellent. please please please try the vietnamese iced coffee, it has chicory and is oh so good. also, the fried bananas dessert is yummy.

  • 7 PeterMN // Apr 2, 2010 at 2:22 am

    Absolutely delicious Vietnamese, and super affordable!!! The beers are barely 3 bucks!

  • 8 kt // Apr 29, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    I love their dumpling soup…I crave it! The atmosphere is great, but the service is awful. I've been there many times for lunch and it seems to just get worse…but I will return…simply for the tasty soup!

  • 9 The Mayor // Jul 7, 2010 at 1:46 pm

    very nice place! didnt think i would like but it was awesome! great food and nice place with good service!

  • 10 Elizabethann5067 // Apr 13, 2011 at 7:12 am

    Ok I LOVE Monkey Bridge. My boyfriend and I frequent once a week at least. The service is almost always great…gets a little slow when there’s a rush. Otherwise everything is delicious, the noodle bowls are my favorite and the prices are low.

    I fear this establishment is under new management or ownership. We used to love the place but the dishes currently lack the spice and flavors that used to distinguish the cuisine there.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
