    The staff greeted me as soon as I entered so no waiting around to be seen, I am autistic and don’t like really loud music so I moved to a seat that was as far away from the speakers as possible but I think there needs to be more choice and maybe the music not being so loud so you can hear what the other persons saying without shouting, my friend is hard of hearing and it’s quite hard to shout through the meal. The service was really good, I like that they immediately bought over water for the table, they were very accommodating to my dietary needs and it made it a nice and chilled experience as usually it becomes stressful negotiating around a menu when you can’t eat certain things. The food was really nice, I ate the lot! Had a nice cocktail too and didn’t have to wait for very long for it to come to the table. I booked online and it did give you the option to request anything ‘special’ it was my 40th birthday but it seems that this hadn’t been noticed by the people who could see my booking, it would have been nice for them to acknowledge this and maybe do something special like a cocktail for free or something along those lines. Other feedback would be you need cushions along the fixed seating that are like a bench, the table is really far forward which means you can’t sit with you back against the back of chair and you have to perch on the edge of the seat with no back support!! Extremely uncomfortable and had to move. The restaurant is also very cold!! Every time the doors opens it causes a wind tunnel and if you sit around the door area then you just constantly get cold air blown at you every time the door opens! Overall good experience, just a few things that could make it a bit more special, food was nice, service great.

    Great food, very filling and friendly staff, the only minor criticism, it was slightly dark so trying to see the menu was difficult. Apart from that totally recommend it to anyone.

    I think this is somewhere to go for a quick tasty bite rather than a relaxing evening chatting with friends or family. The front area of tables is dark and extremely noisy with loud music playing. We couldn't see the menu or hear each other talking! We did move and got a slight improvement. The restaurant is clearly set up for a lot of takeaways, and not sure if this impacts on service. The staff were friendly but very casual. Drinks arrive haphazardly and it wasn't a big problem until you realise at the end that a 12.5% service charge is added to the bill.

    Great option for people with coeliac disease and food intolerances; food is fresh and aromatic (in particular Pho), fresh juices are super-tasty, mint tea is superb, even cocktails are really well made. We love Pho and visit every Saturday (either as a family or as a couple)

    I love Pho, but on this occasion, we had 4 different waiting staff, we had to keep asking for simple things like cutlery. The most dissapointing thing, was the grease all over the floors, especially on the floor tiles in the toilets. It was like an ice rink, so dangerous. I reported it to a member of staff immediately who told me they had just cleaned. I'd say the mop was dirty and probably used in the kitchen too, hence the oil. Even the restaurant floor was like it. The food was lovely as always though. But given we dont get to eat out much, this experience wasn't the best.

    The weather was awful so not many people in the restaurant unfortunately, but the food was fantastic and excellent value. As it was pretty empty and a Sunday night, they naturally wanted to close the restaurant at 10ish, but that meant that our evening ended a little abruptly - we would have liked to stay to have another drink or a coffee ideally, so it felt like we were being kicked out. A shame but possibly understandable. Nevertheless we will be back for the food!

    Excellent food and the safest place I've eaten for coeliac, I also feel relaxed eating there and my guests absolutely loved it too, they are both vegetarian so eating out can be tricky for us altogether. Highly recommend, cocktail was also delicious

    Appreciate it was a very busy Friday night but the service was pretty poor other than the actual ordering. It took a long time for ordering another round of drinks and clearing mains and no-one was very attentive. It was very loud music and lots of big groups in. Food wasn't as good as it's used to be.

    Starters were delicious, mains were very poor. No flavour. No check back from the staff either. We ordered wok fried noodles with chicken and prawns and i had roughly 3 prawns in the dish. a friend had a noodle soup which also had no flavour. Service started out well, but went downhill throughout the night. Didn’t have our plates cleared for approx 30 mins, also has to ask for more drinks, ask for the bill and ask to pay.

    The food was as you’d expect, The Pho was very good, the noodle with chicken and prawn a bit tight, three prawns and a small amount of chicken, but it was hot and tasted as it should. Only the fact that the service was a bit slow…took a while to get drinks….took longer to order food..was a slight irritation. But it’s a buzzy place would recommend.

    I'm no expert when it comes to noodles but wanted to try somewhere different when we were away for a weekend and this didn't disappoint! I chose the spicy green soup with 'fake' chicken and it was amazing - the broth was so tasty, along with all the veg in it and I thought the fake chicken was the real thing! There's a Pho in my hometown so I'll definitely be going again very soon

    Found the music very loud, floors felt very sticky when you walked, our order was taken very quickly and we didn't have to wait long for food to come out. Once we received our food, we had no further interaction with anyone waiter. No one even checked if your meal was okay and it wasnt easy to grab the attention of a waiter. So adding a 12.5% service charge for just taking the order for 3 people was rather cheeky in view when there is no other attention to the table once their food is received. Food was good, as it always is with Pho.

    Great food, drinks let down by poor service and location of our table- despite booking in advance we were seated by the door which was constantly being opened. We had to ask 4 times for drinks and some food was forgotten. We were given this to take home and not charged.

    The service was good, but we found the main course a let down. A little overpriced for what it was worth, we had a curry each but there was only a few bits of chicken, which were pretty tiny themselves. The taste was ok. Cocktails were nice.
