We had a seating 2230, half an hour before closing time. When we arrived they rushed us into ordering food, and we didn't really have time to consider all the options. One of my friends arrived a little later than us, and they almost didn't want to make food for him. I would expect that if their latest seating is half an hour before closing time we should have time to consider what we want to eat, and not have to order 2230 sharp. Food was not as good as I hoped for. The broth could have had a deeper and more rich flavour.

My god the restaurant was so dirty! The food was fine, but it was just unpleasant to eat there as it looked it hasn’t been dusted/cleaned or hoovered in months!

Very nice place with authentic Vietnamese dishes. Strong menu selection, fast friendly service. Was very busy on a Tuesday night so that's always a good sign. Dishes are reasonably priced and the Special pho i had was delicious, washed down with a nice Saigon beer. Would definitely go back.

The restaurant was about 1/4 full maximum and there were 4 staff standing around talking to each other and basically ignoring customers. Empty plates were left for a long time and the main course was served immediately we finished starters ie they took away the starter plates and replaced them with mains. Poor first impressions with well used and very shabby menus as place-mats which were then taken away. Very unprofessional appearance in the restaurant generally with lots of open storage at the back which should have been screened. The food was good but we had no time to enjoy it as it came too fast. The final annoyance was a service charge added to the bill so if we’d wanted to get it removed we’d have had to argue. We ended up paying it so we could escape as soon as possible. Very disappointing experience overall which is a great shame as the food was good. Not recommended, save your time and money for one of the other many restaurants in this area which welcome customers and provide proper customer service.

Very disappointed with Pho House, Highbury. I ordered a ‘Vegetable Curry’, it was described as containing: aubergine, sweet potato, mushrooms, asparagus, red peppers and onion. In truth it had: one piece of aubergine, a couple of cubes of sweet potato, red peppers and onion. The rest of the veg were replaced with Tofu! No staff member came to ask how our food was so most of my dish was left on my plate as I don’t like Tofu. The manager refused to take the cost of dish of our bill and argued with us. A most unpleasant experience. We will not be returning or would not recommend this restaurant.

We visited here for pre-theatre dinner. The staff are friendly and the service was very quick so it was ideal for a casual dining before going out. I highly recommend Banh Xeo (crispy egg pancakes with bean sprouts), which was very crispy and filling was delicious!

Food was really good. The betel leaves some of the best we've eaten, Pho was great, delicious broth and the summer roll we excellent. Service was okay, we had to wait for drinks, ask to order, it made it rather hard work. I'll return for the food as it was so good but they could really do with working on the service levels.

Having been to the Hoxton branch I wanted to try this one as it's closer to a friend- although the menu seems a bit smaller we were not disappointed. The Pho is one of the best Ive tasted and it's always on point. The crispy fried squid is amazing too and the staff are really relaxed and let you eat and drink at your own pace.

I booked a table and was glad to of done as it quickly filled up with people queuing to get in. The food was delicious and the service quick and efficient.
Thankfully we got in just before a very large party arrived......
i'd definitely go again.

We had dinner with friends here. The food was delicious and there was plenty of choice. The prices were reasonable and portions very large. They did forget to bring us one starter, but the other one we were staring was enough food that we did not complain. We had a lovely evening here and I'll definitely go again
