Description: Bun bo Nam Bo is marinating the beef, then comes making 'nuoc cham' and the pickled vegetables (shredded carrot and papaya). The pickled vegies is crispy, a little sour and a little sweet, which even makes me eat two bowls of the noodle at once. Remember to pickle the carrot (and papaya first, before marinating the beef) since it takes at least 1 hour to get a good flavor on the carrot.

“The best beef and noodles !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

We ate at Bun Bo Nam Bo 3 times and loved it each time. How easy to walk in as a family of FIVE and simply ask for " 5 " please ! ? There is only one dish to choose from , it comes very quickly , is hot , flavoursome , delicious and filling. Add to it some chilli and sweet vinegar which is on the table ready and wash it down with a beer ! DONE . For a 5 people expect to pay about $3 per head plus drinks.

“Quick and easy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

The equivalent of the Westernised Maccas. Walk in and you'll have a beer in your hand in one minute and a bowl of amazing noodley goodness in two minutes. Although you will only get one choice of meal and a few choices of beer, it makes for a quick and easy meal. Don't go expecting a great atmosphere as it's all about convenience for the Vietnamese. Enjoy!

“Traditional Origin "Bun Bo"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

This dish is come from Southern of Vietnam, so to enjoy the original taste of this dish, you have to eat this in the southern such as Ho Chi Minh city. The original taste is a bit sweeter than "Bun Bo" in Hanoi.!
