[COMING SOON] Pho 24 Finds Space in Smyrna

The eighth location of Vietnamese eatery Pho 24 is bound for Smyrna.  The new restaurant will open at The Shops at Belmont, a redevelopment at the corner of Windy Hill and Atlanta Roads.  Pho 24 will occupy suites 3A-3C and replaces original tenant Opa Greek Village Taverna which opened with the first phase of the center in 2016.  The 3,850 square foot Greek restaurant closed without warning at the end of last year with local sources indicating it was due to a "tax issue."  

Pho 24 is a locally owned restaurant chain that offers traditional Vietnamese fare such as pho, a popular Vietnamese soup, Banh Mi, a popular Vietnamese sandwich, as well as assorted other smoothies, rice and bun dishes.  

Current Pho 24 locations include Chamblee, Duluth, Lawrenceville, Buford, Downtown Atlanta, Sandy Springs and Atlantic Station.  The openings in Sandy Springs, last year and Atlantic Station, earlier this year, as in Smyrna, replaced other restaurants, allowing the Vietnamese eatery to reduce expenses.  The Sandy Springs outpost replaced the short-lived Rize Artisan Pizza restaurant, while the Atlantic Station location replaced Boneheads, a now seemingly dead former Ravings Brands concept.  

At the Shops at Belmont, Pho 24 joins Creatwood Tavern, Cielo Mexican Grill and J. Christopher's as dining options in phase one of the development.  Recently announced phase two, along Atlanta Road, will bring Your Pie, a create your own pizza shop, and Real Subs, a local sandwich shop, to the the development.  

Signage for Pho 24 recently went up at the former Opa space and sources indicate the restaurant should be open this summer.  

Are you excited for the opening of Pho 24 in Smyrna?  What other restaurants would you like to see open in phase 2 of The Shops at Belmont?  What is your favorite restaurant in Smyrna?

There is an over PHO of this niche food. Americanized versions of any imported cuisine are to take your money and serve you an inauthentic dish.

Can any pho place use a name that isn't generic? PhoKing, Pho24, Pho52, Pho36, blah blah blah

Why do so many try to find a negative in EVERYTHING. I feel sorry for those whose lives are so unhappy that a simple announcement of a restaurant opening causes a person to have to post something negative. Attack my comment - it'll prove my point.

@ 8:31 Why do you feel so hostile as to post such a negative comment. Get a life!

It is not a negative point, it's pointing out negativity. There's a difference.

You appear to be the only poster that is displaying negatively, especially since you have contributed nothing positive about the subject: Pho aka Vietnamese Cuisine.
