A quick lunch

I Am Pho is a good place to grab some Vietnamese food, much more a cafe rather than a restaurant. It is fairly value for money. It is authentic and the staff were friendly when dealing with questions regarding the food. I wouldn't recommend it for a special occasion. However, if you are after a... read more

Went for lunch. Restaurant is more like a cafe..downstairs...limited choice and lacking in taste. Poor service even though not many in. The plastic bottles of soy source on the table looked unhealthy. Won't be going back

Having heard good things about this place a friend and I went for a late lunch (4pm) to avoid crowds and catch up The restaurant is basically kitted out, but you don't need fancy decor when the food is this good. Staff were very accommodating in adjusting seating and music levels for me, as I struggle following a brain injury.... More

I made my first visit her last night after being recommended it by a friend. What a treat! Staff are really friendly and the food was great. The menu is a good size with some great starters (I recommend the Prawn Summer Rolls.) The mains mainly consist of big bowls of comforting broth with noodles, meat and veg on the... More

Visited at lunchtime - quickly shown to a table by a pleasant chap - ordered 2 starters and 2 mains and asked that they come together - only waited 5/10 minutes. The food was well presented and plentiful - fresh ingredients and very tasty. There are plenty of sauces to pick from if you like it a bit hotter/spicier. Certainly... More

Big bowls full of 'broth' pasta and some vegetables, but very little else. I ordered tapioca noodles with prawn and pork, but was served two very thin slices of prawn and five thin slices of pork. All for eight quid! And they didn't want to know when I complained! A true rip-off. Used to be good but now less than... More

Great food and friendly service. My favourite is the beef with garlic. Excellent value and good quality food. Doesn't look much inside but definitely worth trying. Nice touch with the karaoke tv!

Popped in for a lunch with one of my work colleagues. Never had Vietnamese food, but the the waiter was great in explaining everything. I had this beef soup noodle dish and it was excellent - really hit the spot on a cold day. Will recommend

Myself, my Wife & Son visited here on a Wednesday evening to sample the delights of Vietnamese food. We have eaten Vietnamese food in a few European cities over the years so I think we are qualified to comment and post. On entering the restaurant we waited about 5 minutes for our waiter to visit our table, which is fine.... More
