This place had by far the best Pho in Hanoi in our experience. The broth is very flavourful and portions are a good size. We had no clue as to what we were ordering but it was delicious. It was so good that we went back 3 times. You order, pay and they hand you your bowl of pho.....be careful... More

0600 and already busy. Delicious Pho Bo. I am still daydreaming about it a year later. Must visit. Only downside is that now my standards for Pho are far too high.

I visited this restaurant on a chill winter night. Eating a warm bowl of pho bo on that night felt sooooooo good. The soup was so tasty and meat was generous too. Eat it with the breadsticks and it was sooooo perfect... 👌 The queue was quite long, but it was really worth a visit. Best pho i've ever had...... More

I've had Pho for at least two meals every day and this Pho ranks right up there with the big boys the soup was rich and flavorful with not much additives

The title says it all: best Pho Bo in Hanoi. I've lived in Hanoi for four months and never tasted a better dish. Order the quay with your soup as they're also delicious. Make sure this place is on your list when you visit!

I am a Pho Lover and try Pho anywhere I go. I had the best Pho ever. We need to get line then pay and take Pho to our sharing table with another strangers. No bother at all as Pho is so good that I came back for several times

I went with friends to this Pho Bat Dan- a small little Noodle Shop in local Hanoi, and the food provided in the restaurant did not disappoint me, it was really good. The Pho Noodle Soup was fresh, sweet and is filled with all the elements required to make a really good Pho! I ate the beef Pho and added... More

I didnt have much expectations other than what I read on tripadvisor. Unfortunately and the thing everyone spoke of the Pho according to the workers is not available. Im not sure if it was, or its just a language barrier. I tried the seafood noodles and it was super delicious! I wouldve liked if they had understood us to make... More

I came here based on recommendations from a street food tour I had, and boy am I not disappointed. My first visit had me eating two delicious bowls of Pho, but my favourite is pho tai nam. The line does get insanely long so I recommend going early (I went around 6.30 and had no trouble getting a table) and... More

My second visit to Pho Bat Dan and indeed it is the best Pho around....... Open in the morning and evening. Go early as it closes by 10-1030 in the morning. Serves both cooked and raw beef. I prefer Pho Nam. There are many Pho shops in Hanoi and no doubt in my mind this is the best so far.

Thank Max P
