Ok, so I am slightly bias as this is my favourite kind of food but this place is so tasty. There is so much to choose from, the Phojitos (Mojitos) are really good and the vibes of the place were so chilled and relaxed. On my list of places to go again!

We've been to Pho many times on visits to Brighton and it never disappoints. They provide hearty Asian food served swiftly, in comfortable surroundings and without it costing the earth. Always a pleasure to eat at Pho and we will be back again soon.

I'd love to rate my lunchtime experience of Pho much higher, however there are number of reasons why todays offering was only average. Arrival - no-one on the door and four people waiting behind the 'wait to be seated' sign. A few minutes later and we are showed to our table for two. So not too bad so far. We... More

Simple Vietnamese menu, rice or noodle dishes. Spicy, but not necessary hot. Buzzing modern atmosphere, great service. You can't book on Saturdays, but unless you have a large group and are OK to sit at the counter, should be able to eat anytime.

Wonderful food, tastes authentic, modern and funky decor and you can sit outside.. It seems really popular as was packed when we were there.

I popped into this place not expecting much (all white hipster customer base) but was very happy! The Vietnamese food here stacks up well with west coast US. I had the rice vermicelli with chicken along with a crispy pork roll starter--all fresh and yummy. Set menu under 10 pounds. Extra fish sauce on the table made the whole meal... More

Comfortably busy for a Monday evening. Our food was very tasty although next time I go I'll ask if they can leave out the chillies! The staff were very pleasant and helpful.

I've been to Pho a few times now and it's never disappointed. The prices are pretty standard but you get good sized portions, the drinks are priced as you would expect from a restaurant. The food is simple, clean, good, tasty Vietnamese street food. Very traditional and no frills but absolutely delicious. The restaurant is quite large with an open... More

Visited with a friend last night (Saturday). Didn't have to wait too long for a table and ordered soon afterwards. Starters arrived relatively quickly but we waited over 45 mins for our mains despite (larger) tables around us (who had ordered after us) receiving both courses before our main. We suspected there was a problem with the order and so... More
