The lovely Vietnamese chain Pho has opened the doors to its fifth restaurant on Wardour Street in Soho. The interior, which has been designed by leading interior designer Martin Brudnizki, known for his work internationally with The Soho House group, is very cool and the perfect setting for some serious Vietnamese fast food.

Pho has a great selection of starters, sides, zingy fresh salads or goi, noodles and of course pho. Pho is a Vietnamese soup made from a clear stock, noodles, meat, fiery hot chillies, crunchy beansprouts, wonderfully fresh herbs and lime juice. It’s delicious; hot, salty, sour and fresh. On any street corner, in any city in Vietnam, the locals will stop off on their way to work to have a cheeky pho and a chat with their mates. My favourite is the classic pho tai, which is simply the lovely soup, with all the bits and thinly sliced beef. Some of my other favourites at Pho are their goi xoai, which is a vibrant fresh salad made from shredded green mango, carrots, pork, dried shrimp and peanuts and the simple but completely delicious rau muong xao lai, aka – stir fried morning glory with garlic.

I really like Vietnamese food. It’s naturally healthy and uses loads of wonderful fresh ingredients. It really makes you feel that you are eating yourself better. Pho has a great choice and is very easy on the wallet; all their dishes are well under a tenner so you can really explore the menu.
