“Pho Real lunch set - worth trying”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

It is my first time Pho Real experience after reading the comments from Tripadvisor. Pho Real serves lunch set even at weekends. The lunch set includes 2 pieces of deep fried Vietnamese spring rolls, a main course and a drink. You can pick one main course from 3 options: beef pho (Rmb 68 for big bowl and Rmb 58 for a small bowl), sandwich or chicken rice noodles. Pho Real is clean place, the chic deco and afro-latin music make you feel comfortable and relax. The food, however, is not as authentic Vietnamese as one would expect. The spring rolls are crispy and fresh but the fillings are bil traditional shanghainese. The other thing is the fish sauce you would usually expect in a Vietnamese restaurant. In Pho Real, they only provide a very small portion of fish sauce and the fish is "clear". The traditional Vietnamese fish sauce usually comes with finely chopped chiili and garlic in the fish sauce that gives your taste bud a kick. Nevertheless, putting the so-called authencity aside, food quality in Pho Real is reasonably good. I ordered a big bowl of beef pho - the pho came with 2 kinds of thinly sliced beef (the meat is a bit hard) and 2 beef balls; the beef stock is tasty. For a lunch set at Rmb 68, it is definitely worth trying.

“PHO REAL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

The name of this restaurant is Pho Real not Pho. Visiting Shanghai, came here with local friends who live in the area.
Excellent vietnamese food and good value, definitely one of the best eatery in Shanghai I would recommend!

“still the best lunch in the former French Concession”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

I reviewed Pho Real nearly 2 years ago. Every time I come to Shanghai I start thinking about it. I went back today, and nothing had changed. I'm so glad to be able to tell you that. Fresh, tasty, perfect all the way... Everything I said in my earlier review still holds true. Get there around 11.30 to get a place, then walk it off with a little light shopping in the delightful Fumin Road neighborhood.

“Authentic tasting pho and buns”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

This is the place we go to when we have cravings for Vietnamese food at reasonable prices. Try the set lunch - either at 58rmb or 68 rmb - which comes with a drink and two fried spring rolls. They also serve good vietnamese drip coffee, though this usually takes a bit of time. Suggest that you go to the Fuxing Lu branch rather than the Fuming Lu one as it tends to have more seating and you do not have to wait as long for a table.
