“New fav!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Excellent, clean, fresh food! Great customer service, fast meals and great value! The restaurant looked clean and tidy even though it was full. I had the seafood laksa for only $12.95 and it was huge! My partner had bulgogi (marinated beef strips and vermicelli noodles and a side of rice) which was delicious $14.95, and we shared the spicy pork which was my fav meal and that came out on a sizzling hot plate and a side of rice for only $14.95. We also went halves in a fresh salmon rice paper roll to start and is the best I've ever eaten for only $4! I would consider this place one of my new favs in Cairns!

“Great introduction to Vietnamese food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Lots of our friends have never had vietnamese food so this is a great place to take them, it is street food at its best. Very few people have their Pho and are not impressed even people who are chili scared will enjoy this.

“Great value and excellent food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Usually these street front Asian restaurants underwhelm in several departments but provide quick and tasty food. Pho N Thai does much more and its looks are deceiving. Grab a seat on the footpath, check out the small but well balanced menu and be confident you'll be served very fresh ingredients very well cooked and served with a smile. If you want to take a beer, get ripped off and buy it next door or go across the road and down a bit to the bottle shop for a better selection and prices. Much better than the usual cheap and cheerful.

“My Favourite Place in Cairns”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

Forget all the tourist traps. This is the place to eat great food in Cairns. If you want a healthy, delicious meal in minutes, this place delivers just that. Great value authentic Asian cuisine. Try the Pho, the Singapore Noodles or the Spring Rolls. Trust me, you will be glad you did!

“Great food. Authentic taste.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

This is a casual eatery. Perfect for a quick cheap meal. Large servings. Yummy food. I had the beef Pho and could not finish my meal as the serving was so big.
