Whenever I've been served this at vietnamese restaurants it's been bland--isn't that the beauty of pho? Everyone adds condiments to taste? I love when i eat it with friends, so i can taste how they think it's best. I always serve it with lots of lime, chile-garlic sauce, hoisin and rice vinegar on the side.

I added a 2" stick of peeled ginger, 6 star anise, used beef broth instead of chicken & added some dried Chinese black mushrooms soaked in hot water for 20 minutes then drained plus substituted fish sauce for the soy sauce to give it more flavor & a more authentic taste. Also I garnished it with lots of cilantro, lime wedges & hot peppers. Great on a bitter cold night!

I read other review before trying it myself. It was bland. We ended up adding more soy sauce. We also added hot sauce at the table.
