One of my favourite cheap eat spot in the area. Always up to the same standard. I always get salt and pepper squid and Bo La Lot at Vietnamese and I’d say this place is one of the best place for them. I also recommend their roast duck, always juicy and aromatic.

DO NOT ORDER DELIVERY FROM THIS PLACE! We ordered through Hungry House and firstly the delivery was over 30min later than the expected delivery time (which was already 1hr) and then when we called we were told lies about the delivery person being outside the house, that they attempted to phone us and left messages -there were no phonecalls, no messages and no deliveries.

If you are thinking of ordering a takeaway for a relaxing Friday/Saturday night choose somewhere else DO NOT PICK HERE.  We have no idea what the food is like because the staff didn't even have the grace to rectify their mistakes, instead they cancelled the order.

The Hanoi Pho is indeed one of the best Vietnam restaurants I have ever been to. The food is fresh and flavoured. We ordered the fresh tofu and prawn spring rolls, which were delicious and ordered 1 large beef spring roll to share and it was so good, we ordered another, even though we had 2 soups and a main course to deal with as well. You just can't get enough.

I enjoy the food here every time. Everytime i come here, i order rice noodle (pho) and it is by far the best pho i have ever had. Would definitely suggest it. I also like the shaking beef. The food here is full of flavour and never lets me down. The service is fast and the staff here are friendly, it makes me feel like being in the centre of vietnam. Atmosphere is so soothing and relaxing.

In love with the pho here, everything is fresh and makes you feel like you're eating in vietnam. The service is amazing, couldnt ask for anything else. Portion sizes are perfect. Not too much, but not too little.

Been here a couple of times, i think that its the best vietnamese cuisine ive ever been to. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is so peaceful. Would definitely recommend Hanoi Pho restaurant to everyone who enjoys vietnamese food.

Came here last night with a bunch of my friends, mainly because it was one of the only places on Mare Street that do a BYOB policy. 

Turns out, both the food and service were spot on. 

We had a range of different starters - the spring rolls and salt & pepper squid were particularly good, with a decent kick, and both starter and main portions were nice and big. 

The bill only came to £17 each, which was incredible for the amount of food we ordered. 

The only downside was how empty the place was - more people need to know about Hanoi Pho - it's the first time I have been and I only live around the corner! We will be back!
