This is a Vietnamese Restaurant with serving both veg and no veg items. The service is fast and reliable. The soups 'Pho" are really good. Located just in front of the Hotel Shangrila in Lazimpat, Kathmandu, the restaurant has sufficient parking space. For a first time Vietnamese food eater like me, it has very friendly staff members.

Enjoyed 2 superb meals at Saigon Pho located across the road from the Shangri La Hotel. Great meals and so fresh tasting with generous servings. Service was prompt and attentive even though restaurant was quite busy.

Excellent food and quick service, just opposite to Hotel Shangri La Kathmandu. It's open late evening and serves hot pot and much beyond.

Really nice. Best pho I have had in a long time. Good service, clean, and economical. Very few customers so I hope they survive until my next visit to Kathmandu!

I enjoyed the rice plates and beef pho noodles. My Chinese colleagues also tried other dishes and loved the food! Lemon & honey drink was good too. They had a decent beer selection. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was always open for meals and was conveniently located just across the road from my Hotel (Shangri-La).

Decided to dine here one evening but a bit of a dingy interior and lack-lustre atmosphere. Having worked in Vietnam previously I was looking forward to a sumptuous meal but it was disappointing and quite expensive. I didn't return.
