Enjoyed 2 superb meals at Saigon Pho located across the road from the Shangri La Hotel. Great meals and so fresh tasting with generous servings. Service was prompt and attentive even though restaurant was quite busy.

Excellent food and quick service, just opposite to Hotel Shangri La Kathmandu. It's open late evening and serves hot pot and much beyond.

Really nice. Best pho I have had in a long time. Good service, clean, and economical. Very few customers so I hope they survive until my next visit to Kathmandu!

I enjoyed the rice plates and beef pho noodles. My Chinese colleagues also tried other dishes and loved the food! Lemon & honey drink was good too. They had a decent beer selection. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was always open for meals and was conveniently located just across the road from my Hotel (Shangri-La).

Decided to dine here one evening but a bit of a dingy interior and lack-lustre atmosphere. Having worked in Vietnam previously I was looking forward to a sumptuous meal but it was disappointing and quite expensive. I didn't return.

This is a very good and authentic Vietnamese restaurant. I had the beef pho and it was as good as any I had in Vietnam. It is in any case a welcome change to the Nepali food after or before a long trek. Also the hot lemon with honey and ginger is fantastic.
