Good value for money and generous sized meals. Food came out quickly and also licensed for alcohol. Would eat here again for sure.

The service was quick and efficient, when the food arrived it was freshly cooked with good quality fresh ingredients, the beef wasn't over cooked, the vegetables were crunchy and there was a nice quantity of rice. The outdoor seating was clean and there was plenty of it. Not over priced, was $20~ for a starter, main and drink.

I am in Cairns monthly for work and will never do a trip without visiting Pho Viet for my beef noodle soup. #12 on the menu. I have also tried the wonton soup, very nice! Very busy of an evening but the service is still reasonably quick. Takeaway is also handy if the restaurant is full.

After wandering down the street for a restaurant, we stopped at Pho Viet for dinner. Although they do have tables outside, we went inside. The Lemon Grass Pork Chop with egg and rice and the beef with vermicelli (bun) were both tasty enough with average portions. Being quite familiar with Vietnamese food we really did not expect the best in... More

I was here solo for work and I felt like some Pho so walked around the corner from the hotel and ordered some entree spring rolls and a big bowl of Pho. I sat down, it was busy... there were two kids that were running around clearing tables and taking the orders out. Suddenly out of nowhere I heard a... More

Vietnamese traditional noodles with soup and steamed dumpling made my stomach calm. This restaurant is very well cleaned and staffs are served well and fastly as expected. So I visited three times during my... More

It just wasn't really nice, the food was overrated and it tasted like water with a bit of chicken salt in it, to be honest it was kinda disgusting

I've been living in Cairns for a few months and this place has always seemed really popular with local people, so I've been desparate to try it, and last night we did! We sat inside, and the decor, music and food made us feel like we were no longer in Australia. The menu is simple and authentic. We both had... More
