Brighton’s new Vietnamese restaurant has got off to a flying start.

Pho (pronounced somewhere between Fur and Far) is one of the latest additions to Brighton’s flurry of modern Asian eateries. They’re all really popular with the city’s youthful, travel-loving restaurant-goers. Here, the cuisine is based around Vietnamese street food recipes, and very tasty it is too.

Food and drink

Pho’s signature offering is, of course, pho, Vietnam’s national dish, a big bowl of soup filled with rice noodles and a choice of meat, vegetables, nuts, herbs and sauces. They do this very well, with impressively authentic, rich, sweet and sour flavours. There are also several soup-free noodle dishes and curries to try.

Ambience

It’s bright and bustling, with a wooden floor, banks of small tables (plus a few out on the street) and an open kitchen.

Service

The service is brisk and efficient.

Location

It's just inland from the seafront, on the edge of [node:173590], next to [node:173301].

Price advice

A bowl of pho or a noodle dish is excellent value at £7-£9.

Branches

Pho is part of a small chain with a few branches in London.
