Authentic Vietnamese food with big portion

We had the beef noodles and prawn with pork noodles. They were both delicious! The soup was fantastic but we felt slightly thirsty afterwards, not sure if that's the effect of having some msg in the soup. The portion was massive and was quite filling without any starter or dessert. It's our... read more

At first it feels like a Vietnamese spin on a greasy spoon cafe, but the food is worth experiencing, especially for the price. A little let down by service at the end, waiting for table to be cleared and for the bill despite it only being half busy. Other than that it was a relaxed atmosphere and I would strongly... More

We enjoyed our food here and the staff were pleasant too. Its more of a quick bite to eat place (in my opinion) than a lavish establishment for a meal. The non-spicy chicken Pho was lacking a little - perhaps I should have opted for the hotter one. The summer rolls (prawn and pork) were outstanding hence the great overall... More

I've previously been to Vnam but thought I'd try somewhere new so gave it a visit. Menu has a good variety to choose from and the noodle soup dishes are HUGE! We really struggled to finish on top of the starters. Highly recommend the wood ear and pork rice rolls and the raw beef pho. I think they use what... More

i looked forward to trying my first Vietnamese meal with my girlfriend and was left full, but slightly disappointed with my experience. We ordered what my partner missed from home but unfortunately it didn't taste authentic as our different soups tasted almost alike. The waiter looked pretty annoyed in having to do his job too. The place filled me up,... More

It is a great place but follow this advice: Order Saigon beer and 1 soup if you are very hungry if not... 1 for two people is enough. Do not waste your time with appetaizers, not because they are bad but the soups are the stars. It is not a fancy place and the service is just under OK. Soups... More

Went for a lazy Sunday lunch with friends and it was just lovely! Nice cafe atmosphere and a really helpful waiter who was knowledgeable about the food and talked us through the vegetarian options. Starters were absolutely delicious - spring rolls, summer rolls and a yummy crispy beansprout pancake - followed by one of each veggie pho. We were even... More

This is our second visit to the resturant and we wasn't disappointed. The staff was very friendly and accommodating making our evening enjoyable. Food yet again was superb, we even ventured with tasting and eating food we wouldn't normally go for with the brilliant help from the staff. We will be returning as we can honestly say it's on at...

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 quick Vietnamese meal, then this... 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
