In Dorchester there are a ton of pho places and none of them have punny names. I think that only applies to the pho joints that expand out to the land of the big noses (Vietnamese slur for white people I've been told).

Not a pun, at least not an intentional one. Phuket is a province in Thailand.

I'm pretty sure the hyphen is a relatively new addition to the name, and it wouldn't surprise me if they just got tired of jokes about the original, unhyphenated version.
