No trip to Hanoi is complete without trying the Pho at this small eatery. The broth was superb, the beef was very fresh and cooked just right. Together with the blend of herbs and spices, the Pho was heavenly. Don't be afraid of the queue. It moves quickly!

I guess taste is always subjective but we really didn't find the pho here anything that special. In fact the pho served at our hotel for breakfast was even better than this high ranking specialised pho place. The broth was decent but once you combined it with the pho noodles the tasteless noodles completely overpowered the broth leaving it the... More

Don't let the queue put you off eating at this place. It's simply there because the food is so good ! The sign has changed slightly as to what's show on here but is easy enough to work out which one is it because of the long que. Most definitely the best food we have eaten in the 3 days... More

Been to all the top recommended places to eat from trip advisor whilst here for 3 days and this is by far the best food we had. It's very busy, but pay for your food and a place to sit down and eat will free up pretty soon ! Don't let the big queue put you off. It's that big... More

True enough there were a lot of people. However, the place was dirty without the usual trash bins underneath the plastic tables and tissue papers were all over the floor, no usual pickled garlic and lemon and the Taste was just too beefy for my liking. I can't imagine what the hype is all about. But then again... this is... More

This was the best Pho I have had. Grab a stool outside and order from the counter. It's beef either medium or well done and that's it. The broth is amazing, the most flavorful of all the places we ate. Really inexpensive too. If you are to pick one Pho place to try, this is it. Tip when looking for... More

Can't find this place and double checked many times. Store 49 doesn't exist. Went to Pho Bo, ga at the corner and it was delicious. Just wanted to give you a heads up.

This place knows their Pho! When we arrived at the restaurant there was a line of about 20 people waiting to order, most of them being locals, which is a great sign of some good, authentic food. The line moves very fast, but it can be a bit tricky to get seats (the only negative). My husband and I ordered... More

We visited this place following our free food tour with our travel agent. Our guide explained that before we'll get to the place, we will need to queue up for the noodle bowl. It was really hot at the queue and it was around 10 minutes we had to wait but the noodle really deserved the time. We had to... More

Must have when you are in Hanoi ! It is the best Pho I have ever had and I understand the reason why all people tell you about this restaurant when you ask about Pho. The Pho broth is wonderful with softer rice noodle and beef. You should put a piece of chilies and lemon from the table. It is... More
