The beef & the soup was very good, location not so hard to find. Staffs doesn't speak much English so there was some problems in communication.

Pho is ok. Prices little bit higher then street kitchen.U can sit on a chair. Restaurant looks poor and little bit dirty. Can't stay longer time, because light & wall colours made us crazy.

Nice location (North East corner of the Old town). The address is 23 Hang Muoi. This place opens all day, quick and efficient service. This stall is open onto the street so will have traffic noise and dust. If you can look pass this then it is a very good Pho place. The broth is clear, simple but flavorful. The... More

This restaurant is really famous with Hanoians. Beside Pho 10, Pho Bat Dan, pho Cuong is really nice choice for beef noudle. The owner have a secret to make a soup really sweet. The tasted is really different from other restaurant.

The waiter could not say any English word, never smile, not helpful, many people used tissue to clean their chopstick then throw under the table where they were sitting. The place to sit is not comfortable with the foreign.

We asked a local to direct us to a pho place for dinner and Pho Cuong was the nearest. To find this place, just walk east along Hang Bac crossing Nguyen Huu Huan and followed by crossing the road after it. Pho Cuong is on the left corner. I wouldn't call it amazing but it could be seen it was... More

This is no fancy restaurant or commercialised chain but a modest place in the Old Quarters, which is seemingly popular with the locals. The place seems to serve only beef noodles, aka Pho Bo. The rice noodles in the clear beef consomme soup is smooth and springy, and topped with a generous serving of fresh, thinly sliced beef which cooks... More
