The one thing this place serves is excellent Vietnamese beef noodle outside of Vietnam. Worth to take the effort to get there. The noodle texture is very good. The beef stock very tasty. Beef ball is very good. Above all, it's cheap, value for money. Must eat.

Main listing is incorrect, breakfast and lunch only, close at 2 p.m. I've missed it 2 times. I'll get there yet.

PVO is always busy and with good reason. They have the best banh mi (Vietnamese sandwiches) and bun bo (Vietnamese noodle salad) in town. They also do great ban xeo and spring rolls. Their prices are excellent value, and their servings a sizeable. They also do a good Vietnamese coffee, and have a nice variety of fresh juices and fruitshakes.... More

They have very good baguette filled with either tuna or meat and top up with lots of greens. Lots of other nice dishes. Prices are reasonable. Their coffee is just great!

We had lunch at the Pho Bo noodle soup restaurant. The broth was delicious and the ingredients were fresh. Real pho! Friendly staff too.

Unlike my fellow diners, I've not yet been to Vietnam, but this is by far the most delicious and memorable Vietnamese food I've had so far. Inexpensive and served in a less than pristine barn, everything we had was full of flavour and texture - even the fried spring rolls which I normally avoid. And yes, I agree with others... More

Myself and my partner loved this restaurant. We came specifically for the Bahn Mi and we left very happy. We've travelled through Vietnam since eating here and I can honestly say we haven't found another Bahn Mi matching those we had at PVO. The baguette was very fresh and crisp, pate was delicious along with all of the other ingredients.... More

I love this place. One the best things about working for COPE was being a short walk from PVO. Over the last 12 months I've had most things on the menu. Everything is fresh, delicious and inexpensive. Beware it is often a full house between 12:00 - 1:00pm on weekdays.

Thank Rob K
