Really good food

Having been to Vietnam and wanting to have a reminisce, this place had some excellent food and beers. Vietnamese food is definetly worth trying for yourself

Our first time visit to a solely Vietnamese restaurant. Very good food. If you have been to Tampopo or Wagamama chains it seems not so dissimilar. Nice fresh herbs with pho dishes which seem very ramen like if you are familiar with Japanese dishes. Lost a star for expensive drinks which bumped up costs to £65 for family of 4.

Quick and friendly service in a relaxed environment. The food was good value, and good sized portions, and importantly tasted good! There seems to be a few new restaurants opening up all over the place so would recommend visiting one of them, as I'm sure they're all equally as good.

Concept of the 'Pho' restaurants is fun. Feels a bit 'chain' like though with not enough individuality. Tastes were good and I'd like to go back to try something different.

We have just booked a trip to Vietnam so we're keen to try some of the local food. Pho is an amazing restaurant with a wide variety of noodle and soup dishes. We had the traditional Pho broth - one with king prawns and one with garlic steak. They were delicious - the broth was full of flavour. We also... More

We were headed to another restaurant recommended by colleagues but the smells of the food drew us here and we promptly settled on the seating area by the sidewalk. Cheerful waitress took our order recommended a good wine to go with it and left us to enjoy the atmosphere of Brighton walking by.

Went here for an early dinner yesterday evening. Immediately impressed by the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff. This continued throughout. Ordered the ca-ri with chicken. Wow! Absolutely delicious. Just the right amount of spiciness and gorgeous flavour. Loved the crunchiness of the peanut topping. The rice was cooked perfectly. Hubby had the combo noodle soup and he let me... More
