    I had what I thought was a simple bowl of rice in Pho in Edinburgh, with 3 types of meat, but it was a bowl of rice that blew me away completely, every element of the dish was flavoured to perfection. I’m back in birmingham now, but I will be visiting Pho in the city

    Good lovely. Service terrible. Waiting staff took forever to take our order then didn’t make eye contact and couldn’t raise a smile. Then the cheek to add a 12.5% service charge !!!! Shocking

    It was a busy Sunday, and asking for that extra lemon, water, etc was hard. Our food was alright, not excellent. Pho Ga needed more flavour and the chicken wasn’t great. I’d still go back though, as I’m very nostalgic of my time in Saigon and its great food.

    Wings were really nice, beer was OK, had Vermicelli noodles and chicken was dry with not much taste. Friends liked their spicy curry.

    I visited on Wednesday the 3rd of August with my partner. Neither of us eat meat (but do eat fish) so when we ordered I ordered the mango salad but with no pork along with the prawn noodles and my partner ordered the veggie summer rolls and the ‘this isn’t chicken’ spicy curry. Unfortunately my salad came with pork on it, the server noticed just before they put it down and apologised and went to get a fresh one. Then my partners curry came and a couple of mouthfuls in he said that he was pretty sure it was real chicken. There were barely any servers around and so instead of catching anyones attention he just left it. When the server came to clear our plates we were not asked how everything was, nor were we checked on during the meal otherwise we would’ve brought it up, or why my partner had left half their meal. When we got the bill it was confirmed it definitely was real chicken as that’s what had been selected on the till. I would also like to note when we arrived no one seemed sure what to do when greeting guests at the door and (not for the first time) there were at least 4 or 5 menu items that were unavailable. Overall a very disappointing experiencing.

    To be fair I’ve been many times before and throughly enjoyed however this occasion was dreadful. Service needs to be addressed urgently. 37 mins for starters to arrive…which were cold and had to be redone. Other customers who’d arrived later were eating mains and we still didn’t get our food. Drinks were never refilled until we eventually asked. Had to wait ages even to pay the bill, other tables were having the similar delay as only one card machine seemed to be available. Food was good but not exceptional like usually, pho was actually lukewarm. Probably due to the service not being up to standard and in sync.

    This was our first visit to Pho. It was my birthday treat. The menu was excellent with plenty of choice. The food was beautifully presented and so full of flavour. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The staff we helpful and attentive. My only complaint was the level of music just a little too loud for easy conversation and the toilets aren't clearly enough signed. We will definitely come back.

    First time there and loved it. The table hostess was so friendly and explained everything. One of our guests was gluten free which was no issue as they are coeliac Uk approved. Will definitely be going back again.

    Never had pho before so was excited to see this place had opened nearby. Service was friendly but a little chaotic; our drinks arrived after our starters (beer bottles but we weren’t offered or given glasses), and our mains were delivered by a different server who didn’t know what each dish was. We asked to see the dessert menu after but our server informed us that about half of the items weren’t in stock. We ordered one of the remaining items but were informed a moment later that they didn’t have any of those either. Despite this we definitely had a good experience, especially enjoying the big bowls of nicely presented pho. We will be back soon to try the desserts we missed out on. Thanks! :)

    Bustling wee restaurant in a great setting. Menu a tad busy with multiple options for many things, but I wanted to eat everything so that maybe made things worse for me! Lots of options for vegan, gf and df customers. Great selection of drinks, both soft and alcoholic. Food was fresh and delicious, service was friendly and efficient.

    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.

    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!
