Pho Leicester is a healthy Vietnamese restaurant with loads of vegan and gluten free options. We specialise in pho, the Vietnamese noodle soup, and also serve delicious curries, rice dishes, wok-fried noodles and healthy salads, too. We also have loads of starters that are perfect for sharing with friends and family. Over a third of our menu is vegan, and nearly all of it is gluten-free, so we are a great destination for people who follow those particular diets. We are accredited by Coeliac UK. Aside from our lovely food we offer a brilliant range of healthy juices, as well as delicious wine and beer, and a fantastic cocktail menu too.

We came in to celebrate a birthday on Friday evening. The greetings was warm and were sat at our table. We were informed that the menu are now only accessible digitally, this was not an issue for us but we found it a little odd,...coupled with the fact we then saw the table behind us be given menus when they were sat down. We were not asked for a drinks order until our waitress reappeared to take our food order. We all ordered starters and mains and everybody thoroughly enjoyed all the food. The seafood spring roll was excellent as was the mango and pork salad. For mains we had a couple of curries, some noodles and of course, pho. The pho was delicious with plenty of the crab meat that was ordered. The wok fried noodles were very tasty although one person said it was basically just chow mein. My beef brisket curry was very nice. It was only warm and the rice was serves at room temperature, but the slab of brisket was just that, a slab. Our waitress never reappeared to see if everything was okay with our meals so i couldn't tell her about the rice. The service is what's letting the place down, even only slightly along with the fact they then had the cheek to add a 12.5% service charge to the bill. I'm not against service charges, but for one, the waitress did very little and second, this is Leicester not LondonMore

Consistently really good food. We go regularly to Pho and have honestly never experienced even the mildest disappointment about the quality of the food. Quality of cooking is very good, and the ingredients always taste fresh. The staff are generally really friendly and helpful and...the atmosphere is good. Pho is probably our go-to restaurant when we are in the city and this probably won't change. As a balanced review I do have a couple of suggestions that are directed at the management: 1- cleanliness - the place sometimes feels a bit unclean. The last time we came we sat in booth next to the till/bar and there were stains all over the wall and ceiling. It won't stop us from returning but a bit more attention to housekeeping would be nice. 2- 'optional' service charge - (check your bills and calculations folks) this is 15% rounded up sometimes to slightly over. I haven't even been charged this in London let alone Leicester. It's high and would be embarrassing to a customer to remove it. I feel 10% is fine maybe rounded up but 15 is not.More

I'm a regular customer at Pho Leicester. On Tuesday I came about 5 p.m with my friends that had never been before. We where welcomed by a really nice team member but the ambient there was off. We soon realised why. We where trying to...catch someone's attention: a specific waitress, was passing by our table and she was making eye contact but would not come to the table. By the way she walked, you could tell that she was -reeeeally- unhappy. She was milk skinned and tall. She was also wearing some outgoing clothes. Eventually, we where served by another waitress. Our starters came out and no one explained us how to eat the baby squid, we later on found out by another waitress when she was checking on us. Like always, the food was amazing but unfortunately, poor hospitality skills.More

My first visit to Pho was incredible. There were many vegan options I could choose from, I decided to try the tofu veggie wok fried noodles and they were delicious and affordable. I had never tried Vietnamese dishes before, but will definitely be coming back...here. The staff were polite and service was very quick. They gave us chopsticks, but we asked for cutlery and they were happy to supply them (although only forks). Outside seating area was nice.More

Our first time eating with our friends since lockdown, 2 families but 6 children between us and we were very well looked after. The food was awesome, as always, the children were well catered for and the service was brilliant. The manager even took the...time to compliment our children's manners, a first for us and a lovely gesture!More

Pho at Leicester, Highcross really impressed my family and I when we went recently for lunch. We decided to order a bunch of items off the menu and it was all fresh, healthy and delicious! The highlight of our trip though was the excellent service...that we received from our server – Maddy; she made us feel welcome and provided excellent recommendations on what to try. Hopefully the owners will read this review and realise what an asset she is to their restaurant. I would hope that she is rewarded, because judging from the rest of the reviews I have read – we are not alone in being impressed by her. We will definitely be paying you another trip soon!More
