Amy came to America with her parents who took up an opportunity to make a better living when she was 17 years old. In 1997, her parents opened their first Vietnamese restaurant in Raleigh, Far East. In that same year, she met her husband John Tang who was also in the restaurant industry. By 2000, she got married to John and had 3 children.
Amy found her passion for food and service while working in her parent's reboot restaurant, Pho Far East. After John's 3rd restaurant, they decided to open Sushi O Bistro & Bar in 2010 together. The successful Asian Bistro restaurant allowed Amy to experience the real work of owning a restaurant business.
When the pandemic hit, Amy was ready for the new change 2020 was bringing. She decided it was a great opportunity to follow in her mother's footsteps and open Midtown Pho. She wanted to preserve the family's special Pho recipe in this restaurant. "It takes hours to cook, but seconds to enjoy".
