Pho Sure

We were glad to find this open and still serving late on a wet Saturday afternoon. The pho broth was toothsome and extremely well balanced and authentic. Serving size was very generous - the "small" was more than enough. Service was very friendly. The furnishings are old-school and tired but... read more

A lovely meal. The dim sims were the best I've ever eaten. We weren't sure on what to order so the waiter recommended a few dishes and we weren't disappointed. Reasonably priced and the food was delivered promptly. Food was fresh and extremely delicious. I would definitely eat here again.

Best Vietnamese I've had in a while. The broth of the pho is very balanced and was excellent. We also tried the sugar cane rolls and salt and pepper quails - both were delicious. Food is priced exceptionally well. Waiter is so happy and accommodated my 9 month old. If you want a fancy place with super clean floors and... More

Cant go wrong; byo, excellent service, authentic cuisine at such reasonable prices. The noodle soups are out of this world. Every time we go there, the restaurant is always busy and for good reason.

First time eating Vietnamese cuisine and loved it. Interior is basic but food is great.highly recommend fun rolls for starters. The waitress was kind enough to demonstrate how to make them and they were delicious! Didn't expect the combination of flavours to work but they did. Crispy noodles and sizzlers are great but one dish will feed two. Highly recommend!

Often eat at The Vietnamese when in Brisbane. It's impossible to go past the excellent value. Starters around $7 and a large pho for $10. Delicious with good balance between broth, beef, herbs and noodles. Wine list offers some perfectly drinkable stuff for under $30. Well worth trying

This humble restaurant has been a family favourite for years. Always buzzing with happy customers and great staff and super food. The Fun Rolls are a fun, tasty inexpensive, roll-your-own meal.

On recommendation from other reviews, we tried out this restaurant. The food came soon after we ordered it. It was full of flavour and there was plenty of it. I would definitely recommend this place for authentic, cheap Vietnamese food.
