Quick Service and Yummy Pho

5 Posted on 05 / 09 / 2010

Don't be fooled by the humble looking interior of this place, it serves one of the best vegetarian pho (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup). The broth was beautiful and balanced, the noodles was al dente, the fillings are yummy with fresh vegies and herbs as accompaniment. Very generous serving at only $8.50 each, it's definitely good value!

The vegetarian prawn & ham summer rolls (fresh rolls) are generously large serving and at $6.00 for 4, it's a great value! Very tasty rolls with tasty peanut sauce accompaniment. But stir away from its shredded pork version, they are very greasy - not my favourite.

The bun bo hue (spicy pho) was nice too, but not as nice as the original pho. It is too greasy for me.
BE CAREFUL for those Buddhist vegetarians who avoid onions, garlics, leeks, chives, and shallots because all dishes would be with those herbs unless you let them know in the beginning not to use those.

Quick service with a smile too, which is a plus side. I am not quite sure about their other dishes, but I have the feeling they are specialising in noodle soups, because soups are most dominant in their menu.

A must visit when you are in Sydney, especially Cabramatta!!!

Pros: Best Pho, Great price, Generous portions
Cons: Onions, garlics, leeks, and shallots, Somewhat hidden from main road

Good food and generous serving sizes

I went here for lunch. I had the Vietnamese rice paper rolls that you make yourself and stir fried vegetables and mock fish. Both dishes were very good.

There isn't as much variety of colour of love, but serving sizes are very generous.

Pros: Generous serving sizes, Good Food, Friendly staff
Cons: Parking, Not an extensive menu, Small
