    Went for valentines day and it was perfect. Great atmosphere, not too badly priced, incredible food and decent service. I ordered the super green pho with this isnt chicken and it was breathtaking, soooo much tastier than wagamama. My boyfriend got the same but with real chicken and loved it too. Will be recommending to my friends and family. Only downside is that this particular pho restaurant doesn't offer student discount and in a student city too? seems a bit silly in my opinion.

    Went for a birthday meal with family and as soon as we walked into Pho we were bombarded with hi levels of noise! The music was so loud, then on top of that you have people speaking loud because you’re having to shout to be heard, I couldn’t have a full conversation with my mum and sister due to it being so loud! The service was appalling, we were shown to our seats we waited and waited for someone to come over, the ONE waitress was having to do everything and we sat there, no drinks offered when we were seated, I needed to know what was the ingredients in certain dishes because of food intolerances and it just forever to be served. I asked for a knife and fork and I had to get up and get them myself because the lady forgot. The lady who showed us to our seats wasn’t very friendly and I didn’t feel very welcome. It was also my birthday so the experience ruined it. The food was nice but i could’ve got a takeaway, you go to a restaurant and eat out for the experience, basic customer service is important for you to keep a good reputation, if anyone asks me now I’d say I’d just order. You need more staff on a Saturday night.

    It was pleasant, but unfortunately not communicated to us that the heating was broken on the evening that we booked. Consequently it was freezing! That definitely marred the experience though the food and service was good despite my order arriving incorrectly! Won't be back for a while...

    Usually I would give Pho a good review but on this occasion, with close to zero temperatures, they did not pre-warn us that their heating was not working. We sat in coats, hats and scarves as by the time we arrived we did not want to walk around Brighton looking for an alternative. Even worse than this, when we complained to the waitress she said “tell us about it, we have to work in it”. Perhaps a customer facing role is not right for her! Food was good but everything was spoiled by the fact that we were so cold.

    My wife and I were very impressed with this restaurant. Everything on the menu looked enticing so it was difficult to chose what to have for lunch. What we did chose was absolutely delicious. The staff were really helpful and very efficient. We would definitely go back when next we are in Brighton.

    Eaten here a few times but this was by far the best, we sat near the open kitchen and the head chef was running a tight ship! Food was absolutely awesome, and as such great value for money.

    Had to wait 10 mins to flag someone down so we could order food & drinks at the same time. Nobody came to check on our meal or ask if we wanted to order more drinks and nobody came to clear our table. It wasn’t super busy, but staff were practically invisibly and nobody was really paying attention to our entire section. We eventually flagged someone down to pay and asked for the service charge to be removed due to lack of any real service. The staff member didn’t even ask what had gone wrong and seemed completely nonplussed by the situation. We left without any acknowledgment. It’s also very clear that the regular Pho bowls have been swapped for bowls not much bigger than the kid’s size, yet this isn’t reflected in the price. It also makes it harder to stir the herbs into the broth and the portion size is clearly smaller. Really disappointing experience considering Pho is one of our favourites.

    Food was good, pho is always very decent, although my summer rolls seemed like they might have been sitting out for a while as they were quite dry at the top. Only seemed to be one person serving when we arrived, who was running around trying to do everything, but later was joined and there were more.

    We waited around an hour for food due to Deliveroo orders being prioritised. When the meal arrived, one order was wrong. This was taken away and the correct meal arrived within around 10 minutes. Staff were not attentive. Soy and water were requested when placing the order and didn’t arrive. They were requested again when a different member of staff (eventually) appeared. There was no acknowledgment - let alone an apology - for the delay. Service charge was added.
