It took longer than expected, but Pho Quan Vietnamese Cuisine has opened in Hermiston.
Owner Mike Dang said the Vietnamese restaurant had a “very busy and successful” opening weekend the last weekend in August.
“The community support so far has been overwhelming and we appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts,” he wrote in a message to the Hermiston Herald.
The large response highlighted a few things that needed to be adjusted in the kitchen, he said, so they briefly closed on Sept. 2-3 to restock and reassess.
Dang said the restaurant plans to serve their basic “bread and butter” dishes, such as Pho year-round, but will also continue to adjust the menu by introducing new Vietnamese dishes monthly. He said they take pride in making everything fresh in-house.
“Our culture is family- and friend-oriented and we love sharing food and meals with each other so we wanted to bring that vibe here,” he said. “Our restaurant is a place for everyone to share a meal and bond. We all eat; food is universal.”
Right now the restaurant has limited dine-in seating due to pandemic restrictions, he said, and reservations are encouraged. They also offer takeout. The restaurant is family-owned, and the family also owns restaurants in Kirkland and Federal Way, Washington.
“Thank you everyone, and thank you for your patience, and we look forward to growing with the community!” Dang wrote.
The restaurant is at 920 S.E. Fourth St. in Hermiston. For more information, call 541-701-0676.
