The broth is flovorful but not the best I have ever had. All the fixin's are available, if you as for more they will give it to you. And the steak serving size was perfect for working day lunch! My biggest complaint was I think the noodles were a little overcooked by the time I got back to my desk.

OMG! I want to walk right back to that truck and order another bowl. The broth is jam-packed with flavor and the beef is tender and delicious. Definitely one of the best bowls of pho I've had. Ever. And I eat a lot of pho. This was my first time eating at Phonation but something tells me that I will be back. A lot!

I ordered pho from this truck when it came through L'Enfant Plaza a couple of weeks ago and fell in love-it is by far one of the best pho trucks in the city. The broth is very flavorful, the ratio of noodles/meat/broth is perfect and the bahn mi really rocks. Please add L'Enfant to your rounds more often--we've missed you!

I found Phonation food truck at the Navy yard on a Monday and i was hesitant because i tried another pho truck which was not good at all plus they did not give you your moneys worth. So when i saw Phonation i was curious. To my surprise the Pho was better than many resturaunts i have gone to. The people are pleasant and service is always the best. This is one of my Favorite food truck. I looked for them yesterday but they did not come to the Navy Yard :(... COME BACK

The broth was tasty, the noodles well cooked, and that's all i can say that is positive. The portion was small, 6 little cuts of tough, chewy beef, a small clump of noodles and a tiny packet of sprouts. Pho Wheels and Pho Junkies (the Zombie Pho trusk) give much more food, and excellent food at that, than this truck I will not be back.


The pho is always tasty and the truck staff are quick and friendly! Two thumbs up!

This was the very best bahn mi I've ever had. It's also the best food truck I've been to. The truck looks a little different because it is more open, so I think that throws people off. Anyway, it's exceptional and twice as good as the next best food trucks (e.g. Dangerously Delicious and Basil Thyme). Their pho is awesome too. I hope they continue to frequent Metro Center and Franklin!


Wow. Absolutely delicious & flavorful. Great portion. I'll be back when I see them in the area.

Rachel (of a former DC Pho truck), launched a new truck, named Phonation! Not only has she brought back the usual pho menu, but she offers a new menu item: the Burrito Banhmi.
