“The best "Pho" in Cains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

Stopping in Cairns city, I am recommended "Pho Viet" right on the ground floor at Orchids Plaza near Cairns transit mall. The flavour of Vietnamese Pho recalls me about my hometown. Beef soup is my favourite food in this shop with awesome spicy flavour that cannot be found in other shops. Enjoy the hot soup in dinner time help digest the food easily and recover from the cold.
Besides, customers are also attracted by Spring rolls, which are introduced by the shop owner recently. The mixture of vege, taro and pork mince make this spring rolls special that cannot dismiss.
This shop also welcomes customers by their smiles and friendliness. They are eager to help the directions for customers even they are always busy.
I agree with the previous post about the chilli. This is well-known for customers who like to challenge with spicy food and chilli.
Come and enjoy Pho Viet to discover your favourite flavour.

“The best Pho in Cairns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

My fiancé and I eat here at least twice a month - and have never been let down. Actually it just gets better.
The pork rolls are heavenly and all of his pho soups are delicious every time.
I love my chilli whereas my fiancé doesn't and they never have a problem adjusting the level for both of us.
The owner (usually the guy serving during the day) even grows the chillies and basil that he uses in the food himself. And they're organic!
Top it off with friendly, smiling staff and fast service and you wont be disappointed.
P.S they have a lot more than rolls and soup but I just cant go past the pho :-)

“Cheap and divine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Noticed this was reasonably new on the ground floor of the Orchid Plaza so stopped for lunch, the place was busy and the 3 guys working in there were working their butts off while cheery and friendly with all customers.

We had the Pork and rice vermicelli, and Chilli marinated Pork and Beef soup - YUM!! no wonder the place was so busy.

Cant help but admire employees that work together efficiently and have a good time while at the same time creating awesome meals fresh in front of the customers! Well done!
