The food in here is fantastic, it is a gem hidden away in Chinatown. You must go here, the phó is incredible and the starters are tasty. Cannot recommend enough!

Met a friend coming in from Horwich for lunch, decided to meet here. My pho was delicious, and the friend (who had no experience with Vietnamese food) did one of the vermicelli dishes. She loved it. Decor is a bit on the kitschy side, and looks a bit dated, but the service was good! If I lived a bit closer,... More

This hidden restaurant just at the hart of China town is real gem in town. It is definitely THE BEST in it's kind. Try their soups It's so fresh and healthy and big portions. Service is excellent and very friendly.

Tucked away in a basement in Chinatown with predominantly Far Eastern patrons this place looked promising. Brightly lit, with mica top tables and some slightly over-the-top decorations (my favourite was an artificial cherry tree in full bloom standing in the middle of the place. I had some very tasty minced pork spring rolls and a mixed meat pho. The pho... More

Living in rural Scotland, we don't get many opportunities to have Vietnamese food. We were on holiday in Manchester and were delighted to walk by I Am Pho. We practically ran inside. We already knew that we wanted some Vietnamese rolls. We spent some time trying to decide what to get. We each got a bowl of gorgeous Pho -... More

The chicken pho has become a staple in my diet as it is filling and so tasty. Really helps if i'm not feeling great or I have been working out. I would highly recommend visiting here if you have not already

I walked into "I am pho" after I ended up in Manchester's China Town. I wasn't planning on having Vietnamese food, but after seeing it full of locals and having a look at their menu, it was just too inviting! I had a vegetarian tofu meal, it was large and very filling, very tasty! I enjoyed my stay there &... More

Around £6 for a huggggee bowl of soup noodles. Full of flavour, very fresh & served quick. If you havn't had Pho noodles, this is one of the best in Manchester to start yourself off. It's got the local non chain feel too. It's no flashy, but it's exactly the kind of place you and a few mates want to... More
