With the exception of one dish everything else was so bland and tasteless. The tofu dish was like chewing on dried up old sponge and just wasn't edible. We did receive a 20% refund on the bill but I'm afraid none of us would return.

Went to Pho recently to get out of the cold: it was a great idea! The food was fantastic and the staff were incredibly helpful. Great restaurant in the heart of the Lanes - definitely recommend the pork spring rolls!

Been here a few times before and had an ok experience. Not today..had a satisfying lunch. We ordered the usual Chå giò appetisers with nuòc cham (fish sauce). Then goes phò chin soup and prawn/chicken combo wok fried phò xaò noodles. I must say the taste is much improved since our last visit. Menu prices seemed to have been the... More

Great Vietnamese restaurant with very tasty dishes. Service was excellent overall but just be aware that the prawn crackers and extra veggies you may be offered aren't free. Apart from this minor fault, we loved the food and overall experience!

Great place. Very attentive staff and very fresh flavoursome food. Evening meal. Had a lovely selection of starters followed by noodles and a couple of drinks. Will be back.

Love eating at this vietnamese restaurant. The food is so fresh and non- fattening. The menu is varied, but I always go for the Bun with prawns-- lots of fresh vegetables accompanied by a delicious dressing.

Thank karen g
