My family and I were in Melbourne for the Aussie Open. We were very excited about going to Pho Dzung as we had it a few years back and loved it. Unfortunately, the food was a let down this time. The noodle soup was bland, fresh spring rolls too stuffed with vermicelli accompanied by the peanut sauce which tasted awful....... More

I've been coming here for the last 3 years and every time the Pho is consistently delicious and the staff are awesome. It will never disappoint.

I discovered this place years ago while working in the city. On a recent visit it was delightful to find the chicken pho just as good as I remembered it. Efficient and fast service, very well priced, the stock was very tasty and as always it was good to have the fresh ingredients including the bean shoots, lemon, chilli and... More

We suddenly popped up at this place and found it nice. It's near China Town on Russel street. A small and simple place. The broth is really flavoursome and the chicken slices go pretty good with it. We enjoyed the soup and the quantity is good for the price. It was just 23$ for two noodle soup. Worth a try.

Having travelled Vietnam twice and Cambodia we love this place for Pho. No wonder it is so busy. This gem is the go to place for Pho fix. Choice including different sizes and prices make it such value. Terrific character running the floor and quick service. Quality, taste and ingredients first class. To a previous reviewer who said that bean... More

I went in for order and was served within 8 minutes. At $11.50 for a very big bowl it is cheap even by NZ standards. Not much sign there was much MSG added in the broth, which is good news. Downside is bean sprouts were given a but after the noodle was ready. Still, the service and soup is much... More

I love my Vietnamese restaurants in Footscray, Richmond and Swanston St City, however this little place in Russell St is an absolute gem. Three different bow sizes if you love your Pho Soup - small, medium and large at reasonable prices.A great range of soups and other Vietnamese meals on offer. Staff are supper friendly and the service very fast.... More

I have eaten Pho all over the world and the Pho here is the best in Australia! The soup and meat, whether beef or chicken are top quality. Must try!

I always come here for my pho fix. Broth is flavoursome and the add-ins are generous and fresh. Consistent, quick and delicious. Well worth a visit if you're feeling the need for pho.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
