My favourite restaurant in Brighton

Always a great place to go with friends - good service, you can always be seated but equally it's always busy, and I love the menu. I can strongly recommend the chicken papaya salad! And it's now on Deliveroo so you can get it at home!

We drop onto this fantastic restaurant after a short tour of what Brighton had for lunch. I can't speak highly enough about the quality of food and service at this excellent restaurant. Possible the best spring roll start I have eaten anywhere. Do not walk past this restaurant without stopping to eat . Fantastic in every sense and excellent value!

Went to Brighton last Sat night as a last minute trip. The town was really busy on the front but this was set down a quiet street. The only reason we found it was because we walked past it walking from the carp ark to the pier. It was busy so the service was a bit slow. However the food... More

This is the most recent visit of loads that we've made to Pho, and this was just as good. Brilliant chilled service but most importantly the tastiest Vietnamese food we've had outside Hanoi. Don't bother wondering where to eat in Brighton and what to try. This is the place!

I've visited Pho couple weeks ago but not sure on the exact date. I've been quite a regular customer and have really recommended this place to quite a lot of friends. Unfortunately, the last visit was so disappointing and I've decided not to return anymore. I've ordered a spicy soup noodle with beef and extra prawns. The prawns in my... More

It was a nice dinner we when it just starts to become crowed.The food even so not truly authentic was good. The delivery was very fast and not too expensive. The staff was friendly and looked at us regulary.The only what caused me not to give 5 points was the fact that we had to wait before we could pay... More

I went there with no expectations. Actually we just walked past this place while we were planning to go to Jamie Oliver's place but this one got our attention. We were two together so it was easy to get a table (the place was full though). We got veggie spring roll for a starter, soo goooood!! Then I got the... More

In all fairness I was pretty apprehensive about this place as the missus had been and had been banging on about having soup for a main course which in my mind sounded a bit like an underwater hose pipe in terms of its usefulness in filling me up. Our booking was taken well and courteously which was a good start.... More

We took our 6 year old twins to Pho as a gentle introduction to Vietnamese food before holidays later in the year. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food (it is not your average chain restaurant), and special thanks to Sally, our friendly and very helpful member of the Pho waiting staff team.

Horrible experience with staff, and she also stated that this is not vietnamese restaurant and no team member either chef or owner are vietnamese. The dishs' flavour are not authentic vietnamese food, so may be just suitable for anyone but not Vietnamese people.
