Boasting outdoor seating with sea views, Pho Brighton serves traditional Vietnamese dishes from its central open kitchen.

Vietnam’s national dish, pho noodle soups are undoubtedly a speciality. Elsewhere on the Pho menu, discover bun noodles with lemongrass and chilli, mildly spiced curries with fragrant rice, or the tiger prawn stir fry in a sweet ginger sauce. For a lighter bite, flavour-packed dishes include the spicy green mango salad topped with pork, dried shrimps and peanuts.

For dessert, savour the likes of decadent chocolate truffles, banana fritters, or rich ice creams and refreshing sorbets. Top off a meal at Pho restaurant with a Vietnamese beer, or choose from a number of quality wines chosen to match the food.

A pebble’s throw from the beach, Pho Brighton is a 15-minute walk from Brighton Rail Station.

    Gorgeous food, lovely atmosphere, returning customers as loved it before. This time we didn't feel that the service lived up to the fabulous food. Waiting staff couldn't wait to put food on the table and disappear, numerous times we would have liked to order additional drinks and water and it felt as if we were putting them out by asking, which was a shame ....we also waited an age at the end to settle the bill when the restaurant was virtually empty by then. Wouldn't put us off returning again, but of course would be so much better if the staff took more pride in their work.

    Great atmosphere. Staff, who were very busy, still had time to explain the concept and treat you as individuals. And food that was delicious. What is there not to like!
    We knew we were going to be late for our 19.00 booking. When we phoned to explain we were told it was no problem and were totally reassured that our table would be held.

    Wonderful. The online booking was easy and although I mentioned there would be a wheelchair and walker I did not expect it to be plain sailing but it was. The staff were really attentive and helpful, there was plenty of room for us and no fuss was made. The atmosphere was relaxed, exactly what was needed after my cousin had run the marathon and although there was music, we could hear each other talk, which is so important. None of the five of us had sampled Vietnamese food before and had no idea what to expect, again the staff were great and helped us to make choices. The food was well presented and delicious; you could taste the fresh ingredients that were expertly cooked with individual interesting flavours. I liked the chilli oil and garlic in a jar on the tables; I usually have to ask for chilli oil, so this is a plus. The drinks menu was unusual which made us try different things, so very good. My cousin loves his real beer so maybe some of those on the drinks menu would be good. Mum loves her Irish coffee so if there is a Vietnamese slant on this with a liqueur, it could be worth putting on the menu. Suitable for the disabled with a disabled toilet on the ground level and room to move. A very positive experience for us all.
