SquareMeal Review of
Lovers of Vietnamese food will gladly welcome this trendy, cheerful mini-chain, which opened on Cambridge’s most popular central restaurant street in 2016. As the name suggests, Pho specialises in Vietnam’s national dish of noodles in soup, bringing fresh, vibrant cooking “bursting with a million flavours” to London and beyond – at low prices. Unlike many Vietnamese restaurants that try to squeeze the entire national repertoire on to one menu, this outfit has edited its selection to a manageable list of variations on soup, bun (vermicelli with stir-fried toppings), goi (salads) and the ever-popular spring and summer rolls. Don’t miss out on the papaya salad, meatballs or the house pho (which comes with fascinating additions). Dark, moody decor with mixed high tables and cosy corners make Pho a perfect venue for groups or casual date nights, but student-friendly pricing and big picture windows also attract plenty of diners with daytime munchies.
