Pho is a great option when you're looking for a vegan clear broth noodle soup and don't have time to go through all the mom-and-pop listings to find something a bit more authentic (and vegan). What's nice about Pho is they offer at least two vegan broths, one is closer to normal pho broth and the other is a spicy broth (but tends to be very limey). I've honestly been a bit underwhelmed by both broths at multiple Pho locations, but you can always add loads of sriracha and other toppings to your tasting. I love their tofu, which is very porous and holds a good volume of broth inside. The pho soup is made with the very thin pho noodles (not my favorite) and the spicy soup is made with the thick/round noodles, like spaghetti noodles (I love this noodle option).

My overall verdict is, this is great if you're in a pinch or need to find a place that will satisfy vegans and non-vegans alike, as there are Pho locations everywhere and this is quite convenient. However, I'm more inclined to choose a local mom-and-pop if it's an option. Moreover, I've found the execution to be inconsistent across Pho locations.

Overall Rating: 3-3.5

Great Veganuary options

Such a lovely meal. A separate vegan menu and they used THIS isn’t chicken as an add in extra (which was lovely in the wok fried rice I had)

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Nice seating, Helpful staff

Cons: Can get very busy for lunch time, You can’t reserve between 12-2pm week days.

It’s in Cheapside Upper Passage Mall Floor 1.

The address on HappyCow is wrong and after following my Apple Maps aimlessly I called the restaurant and they gave me directions!

Pros: Vegan food options with Vegan Pho Soup!

Cons: Service needs to be improved, Need to clear the tables and seat people faster , Take the money and reduce the lineup at the door

Incorrect location?

I tried to find this restaurant but it either changed addresses or the one given here isn't in the correct location on google maps.
