    Everything was great with our meal expect after we were given our mains we were pretty much ignored by the politeful but distracted/busy staff. Never offered any further drinks or deserts/bill etc. Still the food was spot on so I would go back.

    Disappointing all round - music choices good but far too loud. Servers inconsistent. Summer rolls obviously prepped hours ago and therefore over-chewy. Pho broth not stale exactly but certainly not fresh. Curry well flavoured, but overwhelmed by pure heat and it was obvious the rice had been sitting out for a while. Nojito and Spicy lemonade on the other hand were absolutely delightful. I was hoping for something amazing. I got below average.

    We have been a few times before but this time the food wasn't as good as on previous occasions. A sign of a good restaurant is consistency. Getting dishes to be favourless which had previously been good shows there are no quality control.

    Disappointing. We were at a corner table and it took a long time for anyone to take our order and a long time for our starters to arrive - 50 minutes from sitting down to being served and then the food was lukewarm. I honestly think we'd just been forgotten. This was further confirmed when the waitress approached us to say our mains were ready so would we like them while we ate our starters. This was when I mentioned the food was luke warm and had it been standing a while? The waitress was very prompt in getting the manager who took one of our starter dishes off the bill as compensation. I cant fault the Manager as he was very attentive after this but, being a regular visitor to Pho, I'm sorry to say that this time we were underwhelmed and are not feeling inclined to visit again any time soon

    The food at the Canterbury branch is usually excellent and the general vibe is good. However, at my most recent visit I found the servers to be too eager to help and would often interrupt conversations, forget to provide extra cutlery, would forget a detail of our order and come back to double check or we would be asked the same question by three different servers. Clearly, communication amongst the staff needs to be improved. Finally, I am slightly deterred coming back again as when it came to the bill, the waitress had already added the optional tip of 10% and said “if you want me to take it off I’ll come back and do that for you” but quickly walked away before we could ask then and there. It was a clever tactic to ensure she got her tip as she knew people would either be too uncomfortable to ask it be taken off or in a rush to leave. I have not experienced that at the Birmingham and Manchester branches as the diner usually is the one who can choose that option…sneaky.

    I loved the service but my only issue was that I had the tofu classic curry and unfortunately there were too many chilli’s in it, I feel that it was too spicy for me, I’ve had the classic curry before and it wasn’t that spicy, so I think this must have been a mistake, it was so busy that the waitress had forgotten about our gin and tonic order so I didn’t bother making a fuss about the extra spicy curry, I just didn’t eat it. I’ve been to Pho before on two occasions and had a fabulous time, so it wasn’t a full reflection on the experience and I would still recommend it.

    Really lovely authentic restaurant. The food was amazing however, next time I will not have the meat alternative but rather just the vegetable options ( this is a personal opinion and other may like it fake chicken ) Really lovely staff and we can’t wait to come back and try some other things on the menu. I will forget being dreaming of your crispy vegetable spring rolls !!!!

    Went for a family birthday of 7 of us. Service was very. Very slow. Took a very long time even to get the first drinks ordered. Arrived at 7 and did not leave until nearly 9:45. At the end of the meal we were finished for over 30 minutes and no one came over when someone finally did they asked about desserts and brought menus over. Another 20 minutes or so passed and they finally took our order and then come back to say the kitchen was now closed. Very poor service. Also some of the uniform / appearance is unhygienic. Our waitress had very long hair that was not put up and when they gave our food had to lean over and their hair was going in the food! Such a shame as have been before as a smaller Table and service was good no problems with servers either. This time there was little to no staff and the service ruined the whole experience as well as taking so long to take our order and then saying the kitchen is closed!

    Been here before but not on a Saturday night. Good took a long time to arrive, over an hour for starters and then another forty-five minutes for mains. Waiting staff who served us apologised and looked stressed/ unhappy. Food is nice and good value, but presentation was poor compared to usual. Tried chicken wings for the first time and they were quite bland though. Table who left before us asked for a discount on their bill as the long wait had ruined their plans for afterwards. I’d come back but not on a Saturday again.
