Excellent menu at this Restaurant, located near the lanes in Brighton I could not fault the presentation of the food, which is all made from high quality fresh ingredients. Very helpful staff advice on what to eat. I recommend this, particularly if you like to eat healthy food.

Went to Pho for our sons birthday. We all love Asian food, Thai especially after a 2 week holiday there. Pho's food is fragrant, fresh with beautiful aromatic tastes. We loved the starters and the soup with noodles was tasty and flavours were amazing. The use of mint with coriander along with the sauces ticked all the boxes for our... More

These guys know how to make a pho! It was so tasty and if you like spice go for the spicy option. I think these guys are a small chain so please open in Bristol?!

Although this is a chain we thought the food was good - well presented and arrived quickly. Staff were good - we didn't have to wait long to be served despite the restaurant being very busy. Would definitely go there again.

As title says this place is always 1st class, a really smart place in the centre of Brighton with the best soups around, the food is always fresh and full of flavour, and they also have some great beers.

Came here on a Tuesday evening with my friend. The food was fantastic, the staff were very attentive even though it was a rather busy evening. My only gripe is that customers kept leaving the door open and staff were oblivious, which meant my friend and I had to keep leaving the table to close the door to prevent our... More

My sons appreciate a bowl of good soup, made with bone stock and embellished with seasonal ingredients. I like making it for them and sharing it with them. Better still I like it when my wife makes soup because everything she turns her hand to in the kitchen becomes sublime. Nevertheless, and let’s be honest here, soup is soup. It’s... More
