The food here is really tasty and the staff lovely. I had the chicken curry and it was one of the best curries I have had in a long time. The place was busy with a good vibe even mid week.

Came here with a large group of friends and we all had a fantastic time. As a large group I am always conscious of noise levels to other diners but we didn't have to worry as the whole place was buzzing. Food was fab and the staff were lovely and very good at giving advice about the menu. Very reasonably... More

A family lunch with a 2 year old granddaughter is not always a success, but the children's menu was a hit. The adult menu was excellent too, although the starters looked a bit pricey so we missed those out. I had the chicken and prawn pho xao which was lovely, although I could not understand why the beansprouts were placed... More

It was a good job we had booked a table for 7.30 as the restaurant filled up pretty quickly after our arrival. Staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating. I was surprised how large the restaurant is inside, it was spacious and airy helped by the open kitchen area. Great food, very fresh and it isn't all hot & spicy! Staff... More

My son recently treated us to this restaurant and we ate outside. Fantastic, tasty Thai food at an affordable price. I had the noodles. The starters were delicious and were attractively served up. just enough to wet our palates. I will return and so will my husband who was very impressed.

Had spring rolls with peanut sauce. I wake up in the middle of the night sometimes still thinking about them they were that good. I had another thing on the menu, some pho that I couldn't pronounce so I just pointed to it and the waitress was very nice and didn't call me a big idiot she just told me... More

This was my first time at Pho and had been wanting to try it for a while after recommendations from friends, upon arrival we were warmly greeted by a waited who explained it would be a 20min wait and offered us to wait at the bar (which we did). The barman was great and offered his thoughts on which beer... More

Great food, I love the fresh herbs causing an explosion of tastes. Really reminds me of Vietnam. Been here before and will come back!
