We visited last month with friends. The service was fast and friendly. We had no problems getting a table. We ordered Pho and spring rolls, both tasty. Found it to be great value for money here. Would definitely return.

The most authentic Vietnamese noodle restaurant I have been in Melbourne. Fantastic service, our dish was great and very taste full. Busy restaurant but we were lucky to get a table that night. Will definitely visit more frequently.

We had a group of 6 come along and they seated us fine, although we did go out at 5:30pm. You probably wouldn't want a larger group coming here. It's intimate and very traditional. They specialise in Pho and it's delicious (and I'm not a Pho lover). Service - the language barrier i probably the only down side. For 6... More

We only ever get the pho - chucked or beef. It's reliably good, great broth, super cheap - which explains why it's always full of students. The day we went service was pretty slow given it wasn't that crowded but we had time to spare. When a pho is what you want - this is the place.

Visited on a weekday for dinner, the place wasn't filled when we first came but more people came progressively after that. Ordered the Gỏi Cuốn (Vietnamese rice paper rolls with Prawn and Pork) and Phở bò đặc biệt (special beef combination with beef, brisket, tendon, beef balls, tripe and beef sausage), they were delicious!! Really like the soup in the... More

This pho contains lots of MSG. The only reason I know this is that after eating a bowl today I felt very unwell. I called the restaurant and asked if the pho contained MSG and they confirmed it did. I asked why they don't make customers aware of this and they said they do when a customer asks. Not ok,... More

Turned up early on a Sunday night based on reviews on Trip advisor, left 35min. later very disappointed. Can't believe so many other reviewers got it so wrong, so can only imagine it was either our early arrival that caught them short, or a brain fade in the kitchen, that led to a couple of very unfinished soups. Both the... More

Had the chilli beef noodle soup and it was perfect. Got takeaway and it was still hot when I got back to accommodation. Only had to wait a few minutes for order even through they were busy.

Had been craving a good Pho since my last visit to vietnam. This pho did not disappoint!! I had a small beef pho. The beef was cooked to my perfection (still red on the inside) and was so tender. Herbs, chilli, sprouts, lemon and sauces were provided which were all fresh and delicious. It was a beautiful meal! I went... More
