The pho is great - quite authentic which is hard to find in Singapore. Interesting menu and I struggled to decide as they all seemed interesting. First time I had seen a duck pho on a menu! The broth was full of beef flavour and the noodles are not too soft - generous amounts of beef. The rice paper rolls... More

The dinner set was SG 15.5 including one entrée, one main, one house tea which was pretty good value. Although no split bills which can be annoying when visiting with friends. Overall it's quite nice for a casual night out.

The restaurant only opens at 5.30 in the evening. I was early so I sat outside to wait, and the staff actually brought water out for me while I waited! 👍🏻 Customer service was great and of course the food was good. They had a $15 dinner set which include a starter, a main and a drink. Loved the spicy... More

My 2nd visit since last time, where the restaurant was still in Ann Siang road. Very crowded during lunch time, but quiet for dinner. The chicken vermicelli bowl is very yummy, fresh and tasty.

These guys serve their dishes at affordable prices in CBD (note they relocated to Telok Ayer China Square) and what pleases me most is that they do not compromise on quality and taste. You can tell that they have spent hours boiling the pho stock and the quality of the rice noodle is just so satisfying. This is one place... More

The title says it all. Awesome pho, both the beef and chicken are really aromatic and so filling we probably did not need the ribs starter (which was also very tasty). Well worth the price. They even sell Coopers Ale which I have not had in some time. Friendly service. Will revisit soon.

I was in Vietnam two years ago and I can say here I had a delicious Vietnamese meal and good portions! The best meal we had in Singapore. If you like Vietnamese it is a must go! They do not have too many dishes which is always a good sign of quality.

Close to the usually pricey Club Street, this place is a great find. Food was economical, fresh and very tasty, and the alcoholic drinks were very good value as well.
