Restaurant details
Reviewed June 21, 2010

Pho 54 is the longest serving Vietnamese restaurant in Sydney’s Little Saigon of Cabramatta. This is a genuine Vietnamese hole-in-the-wall restaurant that is so authentic that during busy times, like an authentic Asian noodle bar, strangers could be seated on your table, an experience which horrifies many white people. Its kitchen also takes up a third of the floor space & is only divided by a wall.

Pho 54’s beef noodle soup (Pho) is famous to the Vietnamese community for its MSG-free recipe that has not changed much in over 25 years. The Pho 54’s beef noodle soup recipe has been stolen by many former cooks & opportunists who have gone on to open up their own successful restaurants, all the while, the owners happily continue to sell their Pho to the children of past customers without much change.

This is a no-nonsense restaurant that has a proven formula for quick meals & does without all the fancy menus & modern sophisticated interior design. The proof is in its Pho because over the years it has introduced many non-Vietnamese people of many backgrounds to Vietnamese cuisine thru the simplicity of its flagrant flavours enticing passers-by who ask what the smell is, a testament to Vietnamese food.

At $8.50 for a bowl it is reasonably priced with the many other competing Pho restaurants & makes for an excellent meal. For those serious food buffs who want credibility & authentic old-school Vietnamese Pho, Pho 54 is a must on the list.
