Tasty and good value

I had the pho (noodle soup) with beef steak. Tastes exactly like the ones I've eaten in Vietnam and brought back so many memories. The flavours are complex, clean and fresh, they've obviously bothered to make it properly and from scratch. Makes a tasty, filling, healthy lunch. The... read more

I have had a very disappointing experience with Pho in Brighton. When our main courses arrived, within the herb dish of one of them was a live caterpillar - crawling in and out of the herbs. We were quite taken aback at this lapse in basic hygiene, and so were the couple sat next to us who couldn't help to... More

We often drop in to Pho for an evening meal; we are often too tired to cook at home after a 'hard day at the office'. We went last night and knew what to expect food-wise; the menu may seem a bit sparse to some people but if you mix and match on visits and you can make almost endless... More

Second time here in the space of three weeks...busy / good staff and very authentic food /// we have lived in the far east and this is good news / the chefs know what they are doing // it is not somewhere for an intimate dinner //but definitely worth giving a try ...

Visited Pho on 24th March, very busy for a Monday, our first Vietnamese meal and I'm not convinced, our food was quite bland, lots of condiments and sauces on table, needed to bring some flavour to food. Hubby ordered Bún gà Huë, a dish where you crush and add your own herbs and spices, the waitress warned of the heat... More

My daughter suggested this for her birthday - just six of us who had never been there before. But we will all be going again. Absolutely delicious fresh food and very generous portions at such a reasonable price. We were lucky to get a seat - at 7pm on a Saturday night it was heaving, and understandably so. Great food...

I have been to Pho Brighton 3 or 4 times now so I think time to credit them with a review. My favourite spot. Gluten free spring rolls will keep me going back. Smiling staff. Tasty fresh healthy food.

The food was great and the service was friendly. Lovely traditional Vietnamese food. One niggle the door. Had to sit in my coat as it was constantly left open which the staff ignored. Wouldn't go back until the weather improves.

Been here several times & always a good experience. The Pho is quite traditional & very similar flavours to local Vietnamese restaurants, good service & a relaxed atmosphere. Love this place.
