I visited Pho with a friend on a weekday evening in the summer. It wasn't very busy there but the staff were extremely slow and unresponsive. It took us 20 minutes to get our drinks ordered and the whole service was slow from start to finish. I know this is a chain restaurant and you can't expect service to be... More

Having spent lots of time in Vietnam, I can testify that Pho's offerings are authenticity Vietnamese. We liked it here so much that we ate lunch and dinner here during our visit to Brighton. Try some of the fresh fruit juices, too. There are some interesting combinations available.

Went here for dinner. I do love Vietnamese food so was keen to try this restaurant. I have to say I was not disappointed the food was excellent. The only down side was it is a little to commercialised but I can put up with that for great food and a good atmosphere. The staff were very friendly too. We... More

Last Friday a friend and I had what can only be described as the lazy lunch - you know the one where you have all the time in the world and enjoying the company of the person you are with you just hope that they will like the restaurant you have chosen. PHO in Brighton more than lived up to... More

I used to love Pho, but on this occasion, I felt they have become too complacent. I was on my own, shown to the back of the restaurant, no offer of a drink, I had to ask to place my order, came with little or no finesse, still no offer of a drink....no one asked if everything was ok, after...

I'm not a big fan of chains, as far too often find the experience lacking in authenticity. Having said that this particular chain does deliver consistently good food and (to my knowledge) is the only place in Brighton that serves Pho. Thus when craving some Pho this will be my place to go. I've had better - up in London... More

We came to this restaurant for a 'mums' night out. The service was impeccable and our waitress helped me with choosing as I have a fish allergy and she arranged for the kitchen to make sure no fish sauce was used. All the staff were very attentive. The food was delicious, I was a little dubious at ordering spring rolls... More

Firstly, the service is impeccable. It cannot be faulted. The staff are so incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and always offer to explain each ingredient and how to eat each dish. This was our second visit to Pho in Brighton. We both ordered the vietnamese noodle soups. We had one briskett beef and one thin garlic steak soup. The soup... More

We visited Vietnam last year, so are always on the look out for Vietnamese restaurants. As we were visiting Brighton, we decided to eat here. The food was very good. We had both styles of Srping rolls, fresh and fried which were delicious. My girlfriend had a Bun and I had the chicken curry. Both were lovely. Served with thai... More
