Service was exceptionally fast. Business was busy and our tasty selections arrived quickly with no fuss. Pho / sliced beef noodle soup is a winner . Chicken stir fry with vermicelli was also an excellent choice. Very glad we chose Pho Viet for dinner in Cairns.

The staff are friendly and food comes out fast. We had an entree of rolls, main of pho and pork chop. For $33 this was great value. Good quality food, cooked well and presented quick. I can recommend Photo Viet for a tasty, quick cheap meal.

Very easy, cheap and quick. Meals are very very tasty. Banh mi pork roll and the beef and pork soup was delicious.

Place was super busy and I love a good Pho. Can't say their was the best I've had, they dumped a spoonful of black pepper in there which really dominated the flavour. Still went back the next day for a snack of rice paper rolls which were nice and fresh.

I asked for a vegetable noodle soup with chicken and the waiter suggested chicken noodle soup with extra vegetables, so glad she did. It was just wonderful, very quick service. Don't miss this traditional Vietnamese if you are in Cairns.

Such good food here I always struggle to make a choice... today was Vietnamese Chicken Salad, so fresh, flavoursome and plenty of it. It's my favourite place for Pho, but oh, how I want to try the crispy skin chicken, or the baguettes, or the rice paper rolls, or the lemon-grass stir fry....(sigh) I'll just have to keep coming back...

I am a local and I've been here countless times. The veggie soup, veggie spring rolls (rice paper and fried) are all amazing. Great vegan food, always prompt service

Good value for money and generous sized meals. Food came out quickly and also licensed for alcohol. Would eat here again for sure.

The service was quick and efficient, when the food arrived it was freshly cooked with good quality fresh ingredients, the beef wasn't over cooked, the vegetables were crunchy and there was a nice quantity of rice. The outdoor seating was clean and there was plenty of it. Not over priced, was $20~ for a starter, main and drink.

I am in Cairns monthly for work and will never do a trip without visiting Pho Viet for my beef noodle soup. #12 on the menu. I have also tried the wonton soup, very nice! Very busy of an evening but the service is still reasonably quick. Takeaway is also handy if the restaurant is full.
