    The food at Pho tastes and looks very fresh. The brisket curry soup was amazing, as was the grilled pork broken rice bowl. We also loved the lychee chilli cocktails. The service was prompt, friendly and helpful. We were made to feel we were valued diners.

    Pho is absolute favourite place for me & my husband. We went there to celebrate his birthday and we had such an amazing evening! Extra thanks to Chetan for suggesting us the fabulous meal and cocktails! We do visit Pho quite often and it’s always amazing to meet Chetan! Thank you so much!

    First time coming to Pho. Highly rated noodle soup, tasty, fresh and as much chilli as you want to add on the table. The service was amazing and they had an app to split the bill for us which was very handy. Would recommend.

    Delightful, friendly, welcoming front of house staff, looked after a table of 8 x12 year old boys (birthday) beautifully. Attentive to drinks orders, lots of water/ glasses provided without asking- even a shot of coconut water for a child who ate a whole chilli and got hot under the collar. Staff took birthday cake/ candles to kitchen, and presented it with lit candles and song before cutting and bringing plates etc. Food, as always, consistent and tasty. Kitchen adjusted spice levels at request, was prompt and hot. Lots of new Pho fans amongst our guests. Atmosphere- whoever chooses the music deserves a prize. Always good. We visited at 5pm on Sunday. Pho was lively but not overly busy, with a nice general buzz. Thanks to staff who made it such a lovely experience.

    Unfortunately my order was brought wrong to me twice (once being brought chicken when I’m a vegan) and by the time I got my meal my husband had already finished eating. They did seem very busy so I’m putting it down to that.

    Excellent food and good service. However, very disappointed that despite noting that it was a birthday celebration on the booking, there was no acknowledgement of the birthday when we were at the restaurant. It begs the question why the question is asked when making the booking if it is for a celebration. Why ask if nothing then happens at the restaurant.

    Unfortunately this trip was disappointing. They got our order wrong twice - missed one of our starters so we had to wait and got my son's main order wrong - and my main was going cold. Meals didn't arrive together either, a 5 minute wait until we all got our food. Music was also too loud (maybe why the orders were incorrect?) Usually our favourite meal out but not this time.

    We got caught in traffic but I rang ahead to see if our table could be held for us. It was Valentine's Day so I wasn't hopeful but the person on the phone was relaxed and welcoming, really putting me at ease. On arrival we got a great table and a super friendly server. Food and drinks were characteristically great.

    Good food I really liked the big portion sizes, staff were welcoming but getting their attention was a bit difficult. There’s a service charge (tip) automatically added at the end when you go to pay and you can’t take this off yourself you need to ask to have it taken off. Usually when I pay at a restaurant the pay machine they give me gives the option to add a tip and how much, so I believe that pho automatically adding a 20% tip feels quite forced especially because they didn’t really do much.

    Food was disappointing, not as good as it used to be. The crispy rolls were too salty, 4 rolls with only 2 small salad leaves (not crispy lettuce) and a few mint leaves - greedy as the description says 'served with lettuce and herbs to wrap' - definitely not enough to wrap! The nuoc cham sauce was served plain without any condiment, and the fried noodles very oily. Service however was good, friendly and professional, very patient with a table of excited and noisy young men who overturned a table and broke glasses, bottles and plates.

    We came in with a child in a wheelchair , I had put that on the reservation but we were put right in a corner and it was difficult to manoeuvre in and out, I felt someone more accessible could have been found. Also with as a disabled child in our party I felt we should have had more attention to check we had everything we needed. Often getting waiters attention was difficult. Disappointed in Phos lack of inclusivity.

    I like Pho. Been there many times. Love the food. But. The drinks are terrible and not good value, particularly the non-alchoholic cocktails. Mine was mostly ice. Normally, I have a beer. The beer is good. V. disappointed with the non-alcoholic cocktail.

    The food is always good but annoying that they had no sparking water or low alcohol beer in stock and wanted us to trade up to over priced mocktails. Cup of green tea was £7. Wagamamas has it for free.

    Hello Sarah, Thank for your review. I want to apologise for the sparkling water or freestar beer, the supplier is out of stock, so this is out of our control. Regarding the green tea, this cost £2.50 on our menu. I would love to give you a free green tea next time you visit Pho Oxford, if this is what takes to grab that 5* review ;) Best Regards, Ruben Veiga General Manager

    Went for my birthday with my toddler and husband, they were accommodating to being late for our booking which I really appreciated. The food in general was tasty although my brisket was extremely tough and unpleasant to eat. The broth and noodles were very tasty. My toddlers rice was spicy which was disappointing as I hadn’t read that on the menu so he wouldn’t eat it and the music was so loud you couldn’t really have a conversation. I left feeling quite overstimulated and flustered which is a shame as last time I went (before toddler was born) it was more pleasant. Not sure it’s our scene but I wouldn’t say it’s not worth visiting. As historically it’s been more pleasant.

    They will "have you from hello!" Kaiam, the same gentleman who flawlessly served us, met our party at the door and personally guided us to our seat, remembered what we had order our last visit and made our experience relaxing and stress free. Great food at what can be considered today as a bargain. Three cheers for Five-Star Kaiam!

    I tried a different dish today, I chose the wok fried chicken noodles and loved it. It's a smaller portion than the rice bowls, which I sometimes find too much but I finish the portion because it tastes so nice. I ordered my dessert at the same time as my main course (no starter) this visit having tried to order a dessert in the Milton Keynes Pho after the 21:00 hour kitchen closure time last week. It was good that I did because I was the only one who wanted dessert and my party were still eating main courses after having starters. We were a group of 3 couples and I was seriously impressed with the payment processing, which allowed each couple to select and pay for their own food and drink. As a retired IT career person, I'd have been proud to have helped to design and implement Pho's payment system! It was one couple's first visit to Pho and they really liked the food, drinks and prices. It was a great night, thank you Pho, see you in February.

    Extremely helpful staff, all of them kudos to your training so that they make our time so pleasant. Just you should allow cash particularly when a customer wishes to change a big banknote to smaller one (ie £20) so we can leave cash tips, why are we always forced to constantly make global banks richer and not individuals who put the work in, like the many waiters and waitresses who many are students and not global institutions in need of making their profits even higher! Anyhow great food, keep it up.

    Very expensive for what it is. £230 for a family of 6, not all had starters/desserts. Music very loud, difficult to have a conversation. Starters/desserts are small portions considering the price. Different servers throughout the meal. One was touching the food while handing the dishes while serving!
