    Food is always delicious 🤤 and presentation is spot on. Service was abit better than what we had previously experienced but we were one of three tables in the restaurant. The summer rolls are my favourite and my husband always gets the chicken curry which he loves!

    The staff looked exhausted and the manager wasn’t checking in on the members of staff, the waiter didn’t explain the menu as I said I didn’t want anything spicy and the meal she said would be ok was inedible. And she didn’t check after giving our food to see if everything was ok Until we asked for the bill she then offered me to take it home?! I was like I can’t eat it! I felt very uncomfortable and disappointed

    Staff were great, food was nice but just a bit expensive for what it was in my opinion. Did really enjoy the starters & the ginger ale cider.

    My tofo pho in chicken broth was absolutely delicious. Brought back happy memories of my holiday in Vietnam a few years ago. My daughter loved her crispy squid and summer rolls. We’ll be back. Thank you.

    Food is excellent, service is exactly right with a balance between attentive and allowing you to enjoy your meal without being constantly asked if everything is ok. Music is awesome and just the right volume to drown out a busy restaurant noise but quiet enough to enjoy conversations. Highly recommend.

    Very disappointing, ruined a special occasion. Booked a table two weeks prior to the date, no table ready when we arrived, then was given a seat facing the front door when it was 5’c outside and the door was being opened every minute. Asked to move to a warmer more comfortable table, people walking in with no bookings got better seats. The waiter said he couldn’t move us. We ended up leaving the restaurant which was disappointing, ruined what was supposed to be an anniversary dinner! What’s the point of having a booking/reservation system if it doesn’t matter which seat you actually get. Poor customer service, not good enough!

    Easy to book , birthday person within party , asked to share reason for visit . Great atmosphere, if a little rowdy from the table next to us . Greeting great . Initial service was good too. After that m, . It was just the fact that we had to prompt for our mains 30 mins after the staters abs the waitress started to clear away our water jug/ glasses with a full set of chopsticks in front of us . I approached another waitress who bought me a menu to order … Drinks take forever which is the sadly is norm. Main waiter walking about checking missed us multiple times but I saw him he turnover of guests . Food great , huge turn over for just eat . Perhaps affecting service overall .

    We go to Pho quite frequently and used to love it. The last couple of times however haven’t been great. The food quality is disappointing, the meatballs and steak in their pho have different texture and it’s unpleasant. The self service pay is weird and you are forced to pay the “optional” service charge unless you ask a waiter to remove it.

    This was my first time visiting and I was a little surprised that we were sharing a table with other people. Didn't really bother me too much i was just surprised. The food was very good if a little overpriced. Starter came and was quickly followed by the main course. Would have liked a gap in between ideally. I had the spicy king prawn curry. The taste was excellent but the prawns were definitely more like large shrimps and there were only 6. I would go there again definitely as the overall taste of the food was good. I would ask for an individual table though. Noise was mostly music that was in the background but barely audible, a little annoying i thought!

    To be honest i would've given uust 1 star but tye original waitor was extremely rushed off his feet as no other staff started until halfway through the dinner nd he did a great job. But the negatives, he hadnt been informed an item wasnt being served so i had to change my order. After being delivered food and fin8shed we sat with our plates for 30mins before i could flag anyone for a bill which had they cleared sooner we wouldve ordered a pudding. The service charge says optional on the bill but they run through that amount so unless you want to be the dick that says take it off you pay for poor service.

    Lovely food. Lacklustre service, waitress seemed like she would rather be somewhere else. Also - beware - 12.5% service is automatically added to the bill. Poor show there, Pho - I deserve to choose to add it - it’s my money. Overall I’d probably eat here again as the food was great, but the service experience spoiled it a bit

    The summer rolls tasted disgusting! Items on the menus weren’t specified as spice. Half of your menu was out of stock especially your crispy squid, for a Saturday night not to have any stock in is poor. Staff were nice but forgot we had ordered starters that were sat under hot lamp. One of the starters were missing and had to be made. Half way through the starters the mains came out And we’re shoved in front of us seeming like you guys wanted us out quickly. At the end of the meal to have the cheek of putting gratuity on top of the bill without asking is some audacity. This is the fourth time we’ve came here and you have not changed one bit! We have had countless bad times at Pho Portsmouth but we thought we’d try you again… safe to say we will not be coming back.

    The food and service was good, however we were sat at a table by the window. The sun was beaming in and it was unbearably hot, so we couldn't really enjoy out mains.
