    I like the restaurant and have visited 10-sh tines already. I always order pho tai aka steak tai, which has a great taste and flavour. However the soup is often lukewarm. And that was the case on this occasion as well. Steak is not cooked and too chewy in a lukewarm soup. I have suggested thus to them in the past but do again as they don’t seem to be listening. If lukewarm soup is inevitable due to timing issues I suggest they do we sliced meats rather than steak. All this said their foods are mouthwatering and services are excellent and I’m sure I will visit them again.

    The food was absolutely beautiful as always. I came to eat here alone as I sometimes love to do, and found the restaurant comfortable for solo dining. Portions are huge. Service is lovely. Only thing I dislike is not having the option to pay with cash.

    My husband, teens and I all love Pho, freshly made food that never disappoints and the service is attentive and friendly. I have multiple allergies/intolerances and they're great at suggesting the options that would be good for me. My husband and boys love the beef brisket curry, they say it's the best curry they've ever had

    We ordered spring rolls and chicken meatballs for starters, they were dry and felt they had been sitting in an oven to keep them warm for a long time rather than being made fresh. The chicken curry was nice but the vegan curry soup was tasteless, no flavour what so ever. We loved the restaurant when it first opened but we will not go back in a hurry. Service was good, staff were friendly.

    Had a lovely time here - food was fantastic as always! Service slow at points, but we were told when we arrived there was an issue with the till and to expect that, so the notice gave us warning of this - always good to keep customers in the loop! Once we had been served, the food came out quickly, and we were checked on regularly.

    Pho serves delicious food. But.... We had booked but still had to queue for 10 minutes. Once we were at our table we were kept waiting ages for our drinks - didn't get these until after we had our food. We requested water and this arrived eventually although it was a discarded water container from another table. Despite the long wait the place seemed stressed and everything rushed. Grubby toilets too.

    We have eaten in Pho several times and have always found it to be fabulous. This time however it fell a bit short. It was very busy and extremely noisy. Our curry this time was heavily laden with vegetables and very little protein. This was different to the usual, as we always have the same dish. We are veggies, so always have the “isn’t chicken” usually there is loads of this in it, But tonight it had way too many huge veggies and not enough protein. Please don’t compromise on quality Pho now you are more established in Edinburgh, You are one of our favourite restaurants.

    The Pho in London is why we went up to the Pho in Edinburgh. While the former is a thing of beauty, this one was a study in bathos, or the art of falling. The place was noisy with very high decibel music blaring from every corner. The food was so disappointing and badly prepared that we were shocked. The freshness of herbs in the summer rolls was missing. The cari was thick and dense. The chicken bland and boiled. The crackers oily. And all of this was so friggin expensive it’s not funny!

    Possibly the worst service (as in complete lack of) I have experienced in many years. Think the staff think they are in the hostility industry not hospitality. Food pretty mediocre as well. Will never be back and would recommend to no one. Save your money!

    The menus were grubby despite claim on website they would be issuing fresh ones for every customer so not a good start. The staff were lovely but after our starter of spring rolls there was a lengthy wait for our main courses which were underwhelming. My wok fried rice with chicken and shrimp was claggy, just too much rice and not a lot of anything else. The price for fresh juices seems high and the coconut water with fresh pineapple juice doesn't taste of pineapple. This was our second visit as the first was good but we won't come be back.
