    We used to love this place but each time we go the service is getting worse and worse. We decided to not come back again after this booking. Waiters always seem like they don’t know what they are doing, didn’t read the booking request, were not clear on what they want us to do when we showed up few minutes before our time. The worst part was, however the fact that they gave us meat spring roll with vegan order and when we complained we were told that it was tofu. The replacement we got was fine, but totally different than the one we complained about, which made us more suspicious. We were pretty sure that it was meat as it felt, tasted and smelt like meat - hard to believe it was actually tofu.

    Loved Pho! Service was excellent, especially from Erica, thank you. Food was delicious and very good knowledge on gluten free/coeliac choices. Checked in with us several times to ensure everything was ok without being intrusive. We’ll definitely be back. Thanks again

    I love the food, and even though it's always busy, it never seems too noisy, and it's pretty easy to get attention when needed. Surprisingly good prices for Edinburgh, especially given the portion sizes.

    Nice place. Food is quite good, probably not that authentic but better than Waga or similar. Service really poor though. Not enough people or they’re not well enough trained but it became a shambles as soon as it got a little busy. 45 mins for our plates to be cleared, not offered dessert and had to chase someone down to pay. Not great.

    Pho was everything we wanted from a Vietnamese restaurant. The food was honest, tasty and generous. They packed flavour into every bite and the food was full of beautiful fresh aromatic herbs which sang through everything. We were left full and satisfied but not heavy nor overindulged. The crispy spring rolls are not to be missed! The wait staff were also very friendly and helpful. They guided us to making the best choice for us without being pushing. Pho will definitely be added to our list of regular favourites!

    Really nice food, waitress was friendly. The tables were a little close in laces as difficult to get out from our table (to leave or use bathroom) without going super close to other tables. We will come back as really enjoyed the fresh food.

    Delicious food, friendly and helpful staff, quick service, overall a great night out. Would get a range of starters to share next time, they all looked good and were served in good amounts for that. Music was a bit loud to have a conversation without shouting.

    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.
