Given raving TripAdvisor reviews, we went to I Am Pho with high expectations, only to be terribly disappointed. The Vietnamese coffee (£2.20) was very much watered down, with condensed milk overwhelming the taste of the already weak coffee. Number 19, a raw beef dish with noodles (£7.50) had terribly salty broth and the lemongrass stir fried chicken with rice (£7.50)... More

We went here on a week night close to closing time and were delighted with the selection of summer rolls we ordered. They were very tasty and fresh. For a main we both ordered Pho and although we normally have no trouble finishing what is on our plates this was too much grub. A little less liquid would have meant... More

Cause I am Pho in high rate so let's tried on Sunday night. Down to basement, it is a simple layout with some bamboo decorate. We ordered mango and lychee drink which was a nice cold drink. I ordered fried minced crab meat with egg in soup noodles, as i saw the photo on menu. It looked a bit spicy... More

There's about a million restaurants in Manchester's Chinatown, so this one is easily overlooked. Which is a shame because it deserves much better. The food is delicious, the prices - reasonable, and the service is quick and courteous. Some might be upset by rather plain white decor, but I think the lack of fake gold and statues of Buddha only... More

Tried this place a couple of weeks ago after walking past it I dont know how many times. Portion sizes were huge, I reckon a couple of starters and a shared main would have done for us no problem. Oh and the Iced coffee is very addictive.... especially if you have a spicy dish or two. Was quiet when we... More

Straters very average maybe except pork skewers, Pho was really really good but beef with noodles really boring. Bit too average to go back to and I really wanted to like this place.

This is my first visit and I absolutely loved it. Good attentive staff, canteen style and relaxed atmosphere. My partner and I had the summer salad with king prawns, summer rolls with tofu and Pho. The salad was so fresh and tasty and the summer roll was good, especially with a little chili oil and the peanut dipping sauce. The... More

Having looked forward to my first venture into Vietnamese food I must admit I had mixed feelings when leaving this restaurant.The staff here we're very polite and the young man serving at the bar took his time to explain the different kinds of Vietnamese beer and also gave us a few tips on the food.the spring rolls and chicken wings...
