We have sat in and also had take-away from Saigon Pho. Service has been prompt and basic while the pho is honest with no frills. It is great to have the choice of various combination of beef, beef balls and other meat, while the broth...More

We visited last month with friends. The service was fast and friendly. We had no problems getting a table. We ordered Pho and spring rolls, both tasty. Found it to be great value for money here. Would definitely return.

The most authentic Vietnamese noodle restaurant I have been in Melbourne. Fantastic service, our dish was great and very taste full. Busy restaurant but we were lucky to get a table that night. Will definitely visit more frequently.

We had a group of 6 come along and they seated us fine, although we did go out at 5:30pm. You probably wouldn't want a larger group coming here. It's intimate and very traditional. They specialise in Pho and it's delicious (and I'm not a...More

We only ever get the pho - chucked or beef. It's reliably good, great broth, super cheap - which explains why it's always full of students. The day we went service was pretty slow given it wasn't that crowded but we had time to spare....More

This pho contains lots of MSG. The only reason I know this is that after eating a bowl today I felt very unwell. I called the restaurant and asked if the pho contained MSG and they confirmed it did. I asked why they don't make...More

Turned up early on a Sunday night based on reviews on Trip advisor, left 35min. later very disappointed. Can't believe so many other reviewers got it so wrong, so can only imagine it was either our early arrival that caught them short, or a brain...More

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
