This might not be the most fancy restaurant or have the better decoration, but the food is delicious and very authentic. Prices are fair.

The place is a nice small underground restaurant with good looks. I ordered summer rolls and wonton soup with pork and egg noodles. It was absolutely delicious! Waiters are kind and servicing, and services were fast too. I loved it and plan on going again soon.

The decor couldn't be said to be grand and it feels a bit canteen-esque but the food and the service more than compensates for that minor point. I'd not eaten Vietnamese food before but I will definitely do so again. The menus were fairly straightforward and if there was anything I wasn't sure of the exceptionally friendly staff would have...

I am Pho claims to be the only Vietnamese restaurant in Chinatown. I have no reason to dispute that claim. You go down some steps to a basement restaurant which was not particularly special or comfortable. The service we experienced was very good and attentive however. The food was very enjoyable but don't expect the same vast range of menu... More

Some of the food is really great, other dishes are marred by an excess of MSG. I'm pretty sensitive to it, so others might not have the same issue. Many of the dishes are based on the same stock, it's pretty good but there's not a lot of variety. Can recommend the summer rolls, and bizarrely for a Vietnamese; the... More

It's ok...better than the one in Liverpool at central station. Service can be better.....with a bit of caring and gratitude. But it's ok...nothing fantastic after my Vietnamese friends recommended to me. Definitely not better than my Vietnamese friends mum's pho noodles.

HUGE portions of delicious pho. The crab noodle soup is especially good. The décor is not great but the food soon makes you forget about that. They always supply you with beansprouts, mint, lime and chilli etc on the side so you can add to your own taste. I have a high tolerance for spicy food but their chillies are... More
