    Lovely food. The bar staff treated my son to two free drinks and let us drop the cake and balloon off earlier in the day as it was his 18th. Excellent value for money. Only gripe is service was a bit slow.

    The first time at Pho Cheltenham last year, the service was so poor we hadn't been served food after around 90 minutes, so we had to leave. After profuse apologies from the management, we left it a while and decided to try again on Saturday. We arrived, only to be told that due to staff shortages there would be a delay in serving for at least 30 minutes. Given the previous experience we decided not to stay. We first discovered Pho in Birmingham New Street. It was so good, we ate there five times in three weeks. It's a shame that the same business model cannot be replicated in Cheltenham. It's such a disappointment to have your evening to spoilt by poor planning at management level, and such a waste of time for all affected. We may be tempted to return for one last shot at it but if that doesn't work, we won't bother again. There are just too many decent alternative offerings available elsewhere.

    Disappointing. The staff promised so much more but we left wishing that we'd secured a table at Mowgli next door. The food was underwhelming, the service slow becoming worse as the restaurant filled up. We wouldn't recommend I'm afraid.

    Service was not great. Far from. We had a booking but when we announced it, they were not interested. They sat us next to the main door even though they were plenty of better places available. It was cold every time the door opened. Waitress asked us whether we wanted starters first but she ended up bringing mains first followed by starters?! When she brought my husband's noodle soup, she spilled some on the table. Did apologise but despite not been busy, did not come back to clean it. My husband cleaned it himself with the napkin and he then stood up to get a clean napkin. My son's glass had lipstick all over. We asked her to swap it. It contained about a third of coke. She took it, brought a clean one but did not offer him a drink. We ordered prawn crackers but they never materialised. Really not great.

    Prawn crackers brought to us on arrival, we ate them before drinks even came out… presumed free as hadn’t asked for them. Was offered more and declined. Also waiter lent right over said prawn crackers while taking drinks order!! Eaten here prep and loved it but this night was a Valentines meal gone wrong tbh as staff encouraged us to have extras in each of our meals as she described the veg on the side that comes with as ‘herbs and spices’ which led us to believe what came with our usual favourites had changed?!? £57 for a 45 min dinner and £3.75 for prawn crackers we were led to believe were free , dodgey

    The food was great bit we were waiting for about 45 minutes before we had out drinks order taken and that was only after I asked for service. Its understandable to an extent considering the day of the year but it did feel a bit like we were forgotten. Once orders were taken everything was fantastic! Great food!

    We have been here several times, with 3 children of different ages. The children’s menus are varied and good portions at good value. The service is friendly and the right mix of enough attention and leaving you in peace. Lovely calm ambience but still welcoming enough for children to feel able to talk to staff. The food is beautiful both in looks and taste. Always clean and stylish throughout the establishment. I can find no faults, only positives.

    Good food and friendly service, although it got hard to catch a waiter’s eye mid-evening when the place filled up. The music was a bit louder than I’d like, but if you don’t mind shouting at your table companions, it’s fine.

    Food was amazing, with loads different fresh flavours, the atmosphere was lovely and not badly priced. We were a table of 4 which are gluten free, and one of us had other allergies, which they were able to accommodate with no trouble. The only little thing, was that we were offered prawn crackers when we sat down, and when they didn’t arrive half way through the meal, we asked for them again, and they still didn’t arrive. They did apologise at the end. Overall though we will definitely be going back, and will recommend.

    We love Pho in Bristol but Cheltenham is a disappointment. After last night we will not go again. A couple of staff are great but most were unhelpful. Starters were great but mains were awful. My main was inedible as so so hot, queried it as you could see someone has used a whole pot off chilli oil and we've had it before and never even close to this heat, I was told it has a punch and the server did not want to help. My friends main wasn't put through and when it came was too spicy and beef burnt. Service took forever, drinks ordered not brought and our food sat at the servery for more then ten minutes before being brought over despite only 3 tables in the restaurant so not busy. Had the mains been as tasty as they should have been as we normally live Pho and the choice it would have been good value. Go to Bristol, avoid Cheltenham.
