    The service was very good, staff courteous and helpful. I had enjoyed Pho in London on several occasions BUT this time in Cheltenham foods were a let down . Beef pho broth was very plain, nothing like it should be. Sliced beef was very tough, barely any herbs ( no prerequisite Thai Basil ) to go with it. No hoisin sauce on the table Banh xeo was soggy, and did not come with lettuce for wrapping. Summer rolls were freshly made, but too padded out with noodles. Grilled Chicken in the rice bowl was tough and dry. Overall disappointing.

    Food was lovely, as were the staff. The only issue we had was that one of our main meals was cold when it came out. It also took quite a long time to come from when it was ordered.

    Firstly, the servers were extremely helpful and were quick to help us with anything we needed. However, the food was very underwhelming with us having to wait 50 minutes from starter to main. Also, what i had ordered did not come to our table and then I had to wait another 5 minutes for the correct order to come in. The food itself was good apart from it all being covered in nuts which was not clearly stated.

    Very very slow service here. Appreciate it wasn't the servers fault but there was no communication when our mains took 90 minutes to come and then service charge was automatically added. Food wasn't up to normal standard but didn't want to complain as had already waited so long for the first set.

    Poor service, staff were friendly but appeared disorganised perhaps because there was no dedicated waiter/waitress to our table. We waited 45/50mins after ordering to ask how long our food would be and the restaurant was moderately quiet. The food was nice. Clear lack of communication between the kitchen and the wait staff as 10 mins after ordering desert we were told there was no stock of that item. I like the restaurant but I would go to a different branch of the chain.

    Our first visit to the Cheltenham Pho after having previously visited the restaurant at Birmingham Station a couple of times. We were not disappointed with good service and good food. It made a change that one of our party, who is gluten and dairy free, could pretty much pick anything on the menu - a rare experience.

    The food was good. The service was quite slow with wait staff just chilling by the kitchen instead of checking on customers. The food was slow to arrive but I wonder if staffing shortages have happened, it took over an hour between our starter and main. The staff were very friendly and helpful when we did interact with them. And the restaurant was lovely and cool on one of the hottest days of the year.

    This was our second poor experience here in a month. We gave it another chance, because the first time it was really busy. That time we waited for an hour for our starter and another 20 minutes for our main. This time the place was less than half full, but everything still took as long. It was my daughter’s 10th birthday and my children were so bored waiting. The food itself was fine, but spoiled by having to wait so long. It seemed to me that the restaurant was concentrating on take aways to the detriment of the customers in the building.

    Quite simply this was a pretty awful experience. Our excellent waiter Dan was hampered by appallingly slow service with both food and drinks. One barman to make drinks for over 100 covers just doesn't work and to put precedence food-wise over Deliveroo orders rather than in-house customers will ultimately lead to disaster. The quality of the food was 'OK' but the experience was spoiled by the appallingly slow service. In my opinion, there are far better restaurants nearby where you will get good food in a timely manner.

    Booked last minute. Table good, food good, although I chose badly. Wine and beer quality good. Service a little slow in terms of drinks arriving and food order slow to be taken. I think they were a little short staffed. One of our party was unwell and could not eat his main course. The restaurant did not charge us for this main course, which was a very nice gesture as the food was very good. Next time we go, I will order something different as I like hot starters and the summer rolls was cold. The classic beef brisket broth dish was tasty but not really my thing. My husband was happy with his choice however.

    The food at Pho was great, however the same can not be said about the service, very slow and lacking - starters arrived before our drinks, no cutlery on the table had to wave down help to get sorted. When asking about the menu the waiter didn’t seem to like the food or have any knowledge of the dishes which is a shame, having heard good things was very disappointed.

    When we arrived, our table and chairs were dirty with food and crumbs from previous customers and were not cleaned for new customers. We had to ask staff to clean our table and chairs before we could actually sat down. Food and drinks were good. Children food were great but our children (6 and 2 years old) were struggling with chopsticks. Small forks and spoons for young children would be great but we just got by and didn't ask for small forks and spoons as we could see that the restaurant was under-staffed at that time. Overall, we had a good time.
