5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Great value especially over lunch time. Love the pho and spring rolls! Been a regular here for quite some time, never disappointed.

“Absolutely delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We ate at Pho Vietnam House last night and had a wonderful meal. It was the second time my daughter and I had eaten here and my husbands' first time. We shared a starter of the fresh spring rolls and followed it with 3 mains - everything was really really good. We will definitely return.

“Good food served by nice people!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

This is a nice little place that reminds me of Vietnam and its vibrant street food dining style. Apart from tasty things to eat, they make traditional coffee - try it to understand why is the Vietnamese coffee the best in the world. Booking for an evening is essential as the place gets fully packed.

“Like stepping off an Edinburgh street into a Restaurant in Vietnam!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

We ate there two nights ago, had two courses and took our own bottle (it is BYOB but very reasonable corkage). Having been to Vietnam I was unsure if it was going to be authentic Vietnamese cuisine. I need not have worried as it was truely wonderful. The service and atmosphere was superb. The flavours and dishes were exactly as I remember from travels in Vietnam. When visiting Edinburgh again I will definitely return. We enjoyed this meal experience more that the Witchery the day before!!
It is a small restaurant so I would recommend booking. Very good value for money too. They also accept takeaway orders ( not delivery).

“Out of the way little find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

I have never had Vietnamese food before so I can't comment on the authenticity although I was with a friend who has spent time in Vietnam and she was rather excited by the menu!
This is a small restaurant so I would highly recommend booking.
The menu is very clear and concise which for a novice was perfect! The service is great and the guys there will help you with your choices.
Food was wonderful, full of flavour, and we are now planning a trip to Vietnam!
A cheap place to go for a good night out.
BYOB.
