My friends and I love this place. We live in West Hartford so we come here at least once a week. The food is always fresh and very tasty. Their soup is flavorful, great for a cold day.

I had the Sprimp Triangles and a big bowl of pho soup. Both were AMAZING. I am absolutely coming back here.

Pho 206 is definitely the place to go if you want an excellent bowl of PHO soup. I've been going here for a few years and it never disappoint.
Prices and portions are very reasonable.

For Pho, I'm seeing people write they'd rather go to 88 but seriously, 501 is the place if you want Pho, no offense to 88. In any case, 206 is pretty alright to me. Yes the menu isn't written in correct Viet, maybe you can play it off as slang Viet (some Viet actually would write like that in online chats), but still, it's a small family-owned place with that kind of feel to the place. I know I'm not really a picky person and maybe I'm a bit too understanding with this place but it just clicks with me. I'd choose it over 88 (especially when I had heard about 88's "recycled" soup operation...). I'd go to 501 for pho of course, but for other items on the menu that 501 doesn't have, I would say 206 isn't too bad.

I have been going to pho 88 and my boyfriend decided to try this place out... Bad idea. The pho lacked flavor it tasted like boiled water with oil, I know your supposed to adjust the flavor to your liking but your not supposed to givethe soup flavor it should have flavor to begin with. The utensils were dirty like they have never been washed. The containers that hold the sauces were dirty and the top was full of crud. The salt and leper were cotter with dirt. Go to pho 88 and forget pho 206 waste of time and it makes you sick

Since becoming a young grasshopper, I have had the priviledge to have eaten in many Vietnamese restaurants from Los Angeles to New York. Driving with my sick and dragging girlfriend we spotted The brick building and it's charisma. Sadly the food and cleanliness lacked detail. After reading an obviously dumbed down menu, And no native Vietnamese customers in sight, I decided to overlook the dust settled on the salt shaker and the residue on the condiments. Pho tai lacked body, flavor, and color. Hue spicy soup was good, with tender pieces of braised brisket. Green tea smelled as some off flavored fruit infused badness and coffee portions were no more than 4 ounces.... Overall not impressed, and they refused to deduct the Pho from the bill that my girlfriend but merely tasted. Won't be going back. If you want good Pho, go to Pho 88 on park st near sullys pub. At least there, the Pho will breath life into you rather than suck your soul. =)

I love the soup here! The broth isn't think but not stew thick. The noodles are delicous, and I always order the chicken. I always drizzle it with Hoison sauce and hot sauce. SO GOOD! I on the other hand of the reviewer before me always order the springrolls. I dunk them in the best peanut sauce they serve. I can't wait to back! Visit!!!

My family and I love this place, especially the people. The food is authentic and prepared with care. The idiots that review this restaurant and interpret shyness and the inabilty to speak english as rudeness have clearly never travelled anywhere betond their own zip code.

I've given this place more than enough chances to redeem my opinion of them. The service is rude and inattentive. The older lady who works there who doesn't understand English, is as unpleasant as unpleasant can be. She will not give you the time of day, before or after you've paid. When ordering on the phone from her, she will hang up before you've even finished telling her what you want. If you call back, she will not answer. Call a third time, and she will answer saying "What?" and mumble under her breath as if you've disturbed her somehow. This is the thing: when you call, you will probably be confused and wonder if you've called a business and think you dialed the wrong number. She answers with a "what you want" or "Huh" in a mean tone. This is probably only during the daytime, since I've only ordered food for lunch. If you ask for extra napkins, sauce, or even your PROPER utensils, she will either pretend like they are out of stock (although it's sitting right behind the counter) or she will snub you and curse you out in her language while you turn around. (not secretively either. At least she could have the decency to be rude behind my back so that I don't know. I've never experienced such terrible service in my life. Sometimes the spring/summer rolls have an unusual smell to them. Overall, the rude and patronizing attitude of a couple of the workers is too much for the food to make up for. Yes if you close your eyes and ears and ignore the lack of interpersonal decency, then you might get a wonderful meal out of this restaurant. Or you will leave feeling like an idiot.

The spring rolls were absolutely horrible- cold and tasteless. The waitress was rude and refused to take the second order of said spring rolls off of our check when we told her we would not eat them. Chicken and vermicelli noodles was at least edible, though still bad.
Save your money, go elsewhere.
03/11/2009 - Very rude!!!
The old lady that works there is horrendously rude and can not speak english. if you ask her for anything she'll hang up on you
Outstanding Pho and other Vietnamese specialties. Fresh, flavorful and very reasonable

Review: Good, but not great. We have many good options for Vietnamese food in the area and 206 kind of falls flat by comparison.

Review: What a wonderful fall into an Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine establishment. Thick menu, of every type of Viet delight food you might want. The service is on spot, and the little limping lady has all the delicious secrets! Don't miss this funky little place on the side of Park Rd, W Hartford!

Review: The old woman who runs this every time I go there stares at me blankly then yells "order!". After I order she rolls her eyes and walks away every time. She is very rude I've given her a lot of business and I always tip 30%, and today I decided was my last day. I can't take the rudeness anymore. Not to mention the quality isn't all that, look at the photos and you can tell. I went there cause it's very cheap and close to school, but the quality of beef isn't the best and the rice noodles are very mushy. I recommend pho 99, the next town over. the place I will return to. I have been going there four years before this little break I took. A bit more expensive but they were so good that they were featured in NBC.

Review: Used to be the go to place after work. Not anymore. I'm glad to see other people have experienced the same thing as me. I was beginning to think I did something to offend her but I guess the woman running this place is just sour and butter to everyone she meets. Pho isn't even that great. Pho 99 and Pho Boston are WAY better and give you amazing customer service. If you want mediocre pho and to be yelled at go to 206. But I can imagine no wants that. I sure don't . . .
