Three of us lunched here choosing snow peas & vegetables, salt & pepper squid & steamed rice with mixed seafood & vegetables to share. Everything was cooked to perfection, was very fresh & prawns were large. Would have loved more snow peas & prawns though. Attentive service & casual atmosphere. Worth going back to for its reliability & consistency.

Get the pho. Do it. It is great. Tasty, warm and nourishing. They don't care how much you slurp your noodles or soup. Consistently delicious - our go to for Pho in the Ville.

If you are expecting extremely tasty Vietnamese food then this is the place in Marrickville. We were a table of five and we had a mix of Pho, vegetarian dishes and entrees. The deep fried egg plant was to die for and so was the deep fried tofu and also the spring rolls and really everything was great. This was... More

Marrickville is something of a Mecca for Vietnamese food, and Pho PHD is perhaps the standard bearer. Fun and friendly, young and flexible, the atmosphere and the staff make for a fun visit. A 10 minute slurp and dash, or a birthday party - all catered for. Excellent noodles, wonderful Laksa. Fast, efficient, customer focussed.

I've been going to this restaurant for sometime now and always happy with my beef pho. I like large size of beef pho there with a good price. I'll always return when I'm in the area. Recommend to visit.

I was tasting star anise, and... More

After read few reviews so decided to try when went to Marickville. Ordered large pho and bun bo. Food was super fast and large pho is jumbo, really big!!! Bun bo was tasty just the tribe in pho too small and can't taste but overall was nice. Love to go back to try something different.

Went there for a family gathering. Ordered a mixed variety of dishes. They were all fresh and flavoursome. The pork chop was excellent and of course the pho was as expected. The entrées were hot and not pre made. The service was impeccable. We had a lovely time with great food.
