our comments

Following the success of their London restaurants, the Pho team have opened their first Brighton branch. The laid-back eatery specialises in goi (salads), bun (vermicelli noodles), fresh summer and spring rolls, and - of course - Vietnam's national dish, pho (noodle soup).

My wife and I have been to Pho a number of times and think it is one of the top places to eat in Brighton, especially considering the price. Superbly fresh dishes with incredibly fresh aromas and flavours. Good service, friendly & knowledgable staff, good prices and excellent food, what more could you want? We've also been to the London branch though and were not so impressed as in Brighton.

I am totally head over heels in love with Pho! A friend recommended it to me recently, and now I can't get enough. Every time I'm in town with the kids, this is where I go. They love it too.

There is a great lively atmosphere, and some really bubbly and helpful people that work here that go out of there way to make sure you have a great experience, which is fantastic if you know nothing about Vietnamese food like me the first time I went... but don't be worried, they go through everything in great detail for you.

Personally, this is by far the best Asian eatery in Brighton now. The great things about Vietnamese food are the freshness of the ingredients and the DIY nature of a lot of the dishes. They don't come 'as they are' (I guess because it's not prepared/packaged somewhere else..?), you decide on herbs, spices, sauces according to your taste, and if there is something you don't like, they just make the dish without it.

The summer rolls (fresh, not fried) are to die for, and great for the waistline. as are the salads, especially the chicked salad with spicy ginger dressing. The bun noodles are bursting with flavour - lemongrass, garlic, chili, loads of fresh herbs and salad, and a delicious sauce on the side. The spicy noodle soups are fantastic too. Way better than Wagamama.. ;)

I do love all of our little cafes and eateries in Brighton, but Pho is fantastic, as it's got that care for the food and customer, but big enough to plonk down with two kids and loads of shopping and not be in the way at lunchtime!

A must try.

Friday, June 18, 2010 - I wanted to try the Goi Xoai, a spicy shredded green mango salad served with crumbled pork, dried shrimp and peanuts. And it really was a star, rammed with lovely fresh flavours, crunchy textures, zingy lime and mint...I went for the Bun Bo Hue, a hot and spicy brisket beef soup. I loved the accompanying plate of goodies including lime, fresh chilli, a potent shrimp, garlic and chilli paste, beansprouts, coriander and mint. This is the beauty of most dishes at Pho. You create your own dish to taste.
