A Vietnamese restaurant in the heart of Boston’s Chinatown neighborhood has shut its doors. Pho Mai (17 Beach St., Boston) closed recently, and a report on Twitter indicates the now-vacant space is under construction. The phone number for the restaurant is no longer in service.
Pho Mai recently underwent a name change, transitioning from Pho Hoa, a chain that has locations all around the country, including one in Dorchester. There was also a location in Quincy that closed a few years ago.
Pho Mai’s menu consisted of various types of pho and other Vietnamese dishes, including spring rolls, rice plates with assorted meats, com tay cam (or rice in a pot with meat or seafood), stir fried noodles, and banh hoi (or vermicelli wraps). Though Pho Mai’s closure leaves a vacancy in Chinatown, options remain for Vietnamese food, including at Pho Pasteur around the corner and at New Dong Khanh a block away.
