    Great recipe easy to follow. Great thing about pho is you can customize to your taste. Everyone really enoyed it.

    Good and easy to make. Had to substitute the star anise and Thai basil for regular basil but still delicious

    This is delicious I substituted garam masala for all the independent spices and used a roast chicken instead of beef.

    Delicious. I added a little vegetable stock as well. I garnished with bok choy, cilantro, basil, pea shoots, and green onion. This is a new addition to my favorites.

    It was very good. I know it's not as healthy but I think it would've been good with a little salt to bring out more flavor in the broth. I followed the recipe exactly and everything turned out nicely except if you want it a little hotter you probably need to put the noodles and your garnishes in first and then pour the soup because it got cold pretty quickly.

    I added some allspice, and didn't have any fish sauce but had a few fresh shrimp which I let float in the broth for 2 minutes & voilà, the recipe is DELISH! Great job!
