“Large portions, good value, quick service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

Despite the name change (we still call it Pho68), nothing much has changed about this place over the years and that's a good thing. You know exactly what to expect when you visit here. It's not somewhere you would choose for a nice, civilised, relaxed evening meal as it's got more a café vibe to the place. But the service is always exceptionally quick, everything I've tried on the menu has been very tasty and it's great value for money.

I must say when we visited on a busy Saturday night, our waitress (I think she was the head waitress) was a little abrupt and seemed to be in a mood but we just laughed and joked about it and all the other staff were really friendly as usual.

This is my favourite place to go if we're on a night out and don't want to spend too long eating. Ideal before going to see a gig or something.

“Large portions and decent food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

Our first trip to Sheffield and this place was recommended to us. It was great. Really large portions, tasty food and good prices. The duck pancakes and green curry were especially good.

“Massive portions, great service, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

Ate here yesterday with 2 others. Service was prompt and orders taken quickly.

We ordered 3 starters to share: salt and pepper squid, salt and pepper ribs and rice paper prawn packages. All very well cooked and delicious.

We then had a 'big bowl' soup each plus an order of chargrilled pork. The soups were massive and very tasty - sad to say that we only got halfway through them. The chargrilled pork was delicious.

If I went again, I would probably just order 3 starters each to share as the portion sizes are very generous.

Would definitely return. Total bill was £56 (3 starters, 4 drinks, 4 mains). Very good value.

“Appalling over-cooked frozen stodge”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Back when I lived in Sheffield this was merely the inferior Vietnamese place - the one over the road being everyone's preference. In the years in between they seem to have tried to make up for this by growing the menu, sprawling page and page further and further from anything recognisably Vietnamese, and the portion sizes, which latter is the only reason it seems to get positive reviews any longer.

Our meal: the starters were clearly straight from the freezer, the tea was implausibly cheap and cardboardy, the rice was over-cooked stodge, the cashew nuts were stale, the rice noodles were cooked to pulp, the seafood and chicken were flavourless frozen muck boiled into submission and the only thing to even suggest Vietnamese flavour was wooden badly-peeled lemongrass.

Don't even get me started on the musty, cobweb-decorated toilets.

Avoid like the plague. Unless you're looking for 'good value portions' like the people next to our table eating chips with their curry. Says it all.
