Never expected this kind of quality in the middle of the city! Broth so flavourful, silky smooth noodles, generous beef slices and fresh fresh beansprouts and basil. Not to be missed! Best i have tasted outside Vietnam. Bravo!

Every time we have a trip to the city we have a late breakfast at Pho Nom, usually the lemongrass chicken banh mi. Lovely fresh flavours, filling and delicious.

Stopped in with a friend. Fast service. Nice chicken bahn mi. Not a fan of the pho, but that is more to do with my taste buds for pho than anything else. Good flavour.

Favourite lunch spot and quite crowded during lunch hours. I can't recall how many bowls of pho I've had here. My all time favourite will be pho nom Saigon with plenty of fresh chillies and basil.

I feel that their Pho broth has declined. Had my usual Pho Bo Hanoi; plenty of meat but for some reason, the broth is quite watery and not very flavoursome. Also had stomache immediately after. My friend said the Pho upstairs is much better but...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

I am not sure if they are gluten free. Been there a number of times but can't recall seeing it on the menu. I would suggest that you check out their facebook page or give them a call :-)
