Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ordered a stir fry chicken with the egg noodles, I got what looked like a pho without the liquid. I was expecting what the name suggested. Vegetables and chicken stir fried together then the noodles also tossed in with a rich sauce. What was served...was clean noodles at the bottom of the dish with the vegetables on the side, the chicken on another side and some bean sprouts also clumped in the bowl. It’s like I had to do the stir part myself and they forgot to fry it.More

Pleasantly surprised when we found this little eatery. Authentic Vietnamese food, freshly cooked. Top quality and taste. We had the small chicken soup and Viet Spring Rolls. Looked very appetising. Reasonably priced. Casual comfortable dining.

Always fresh good food. Quick prepared not long wait. Very consistent and not to expensive. Great location right in the town centre.

We stumbled on this place by accident while we were wandering around Cairns. So glad we did. The lady who ran the shop was truly Vietnamese, you could see it in her looks, hear it in her voice, and taste it in her cooking. Amazing...authentic Vietnamese food came out of this tiny kitchen, and you'd be struggling to find better food for a lower price anywhere in town.More

This is one of the worst Vietnamese food I have ever had. We are family of 4 and ordered 4 different dises, all tested awful. We are not a fussy eater but this restaurant far below evarage. The fact that they asked you to pay...first really explained it all.More

The food here is always delicious but for some reason they can never get take away orders correct. For example I was assured that sauces were in the bag but when I got home the nem nuong vermicelli was sauceless 😐 similar anecdotes have occurred...to us previously. Like once we were charged over the phone and in the restaurant (someone else picked up for us). In short, be really sure what transactions and interactions you're having with them. However their food is excellent. Be aware over the phone they'll quote menu item numbers at you but their Web menu doesn't have numbers.More

My husband and I hoped to visit Pho Street while at the Cairns Night Market. Unfortunately, they were closed due to a family emergency. Hope the best for them. We happened on Pho Viet instead. The food was very good and very affordable. I knocked...off a star because we waited almost 30 minutes for our food when seemingly every other person was served in 1/2 the time. Weird. Pro tip: approach with confidence! See a table? Sit at it. See a menu? Take it. Know what you want? Get up to the counter and order it.More

ibrant restaurant offering Vietnamese street food. Busy outdoor settings - very authentic taste. Lived overseas for a long time and found this to be very true to taste. Do yourself a flavour and try Viet pho while in Cairns!

Vibrant restaurant offering Vietnamese street food. Busy outdoor settings - unfortunately the food didn't match the anticipated good atmosphere. I went for Noodles with Chicken which wasn't a good choice. Not expensive so reasonable value for money but not something I would recommend.

I was a tourist visiting in cairns and I speak Vietnamese . I could not believe after ordering in Vietnamese at this Pho viet restaurant how incredibly rude they were with O customer service , no tables & the beef noodle soup noodles were hard...to swallow . Impeccably rude staff with no service desk . Do not go here unless you want to fight for a table & serve yourself .More

Food is very authentic and selection is wonderful. Price is quite reasonable and the shop is located inside the Orchid Plaza so very comfortable away from the heat.

I wonder if we ordered one of their less popular meals ?. because it’s hard to understand anyone rating them highly. The 2 chicken stir fries we ordered consisted of chicken and a large amount of onion. A few tiny morsels of vegetables. Little if...any sauce and a lot less for our money than another Asian takeout the next night that was superb.More

Great food at very reasonable prices. There is a good selection of food and you can sit indoors or outside on the footpath. e had he Pho and the crisp chicken with vermicelli and both were fabulous. Reasonably large servings at around $17 -20. If...you want good food at a good price then I highly recommend this place. Be prepared for a bit of a queue though when it gets busy. You can also buy beer and wine on premises to go with your mealMore

Disappointing chicken pho. We ordered takeaway. It was a small, bland serve. There was no chilli or other sauce provided, the broth was pretty boring and overall we were really disappointed with a relatively expensive soup ($16). I know we are lucky to get great...pho at home, but I did expect more from a restaurant in a city that has many Vietnamese chefs.More
