Decided to try something hot and soupy on a rainy night.

This place is owned by China couples, so obviously they have no idea how or what does PHO means.

Typically in Vietnam, PHO are serves with either beef or chicken in a piping hot aromatic delicious beef broth which has been cooked down for no less than 8 hours.

Hubby requested for (mix) 2 types of meat (chicken + beef) PHO and instead of suggesting us alternatives, she said "YOU HAVE TO PAY!) Well, we are not dining in for free, are we?

Obviously we will pay for what is delivered.
In the end we chose to have 1 beef and 1 chicken PHO just to try it out.

And it was the WORST PHO in the world.

Having eaten some of the world's best PHO (e.g. MEKONG in Melbourne, PHO in Malaysia) this taste like diluted Maggie chicken stock soup. The noodles are pre bought and we were given tiny slices of chicken / beef.

There were no vinegared onions given but a pathetic plate of bean sprout and 3-4 mint leaves are given.

There are a table in there, obviously they have never eaten PHO in their life. Otherwise you won't be in there.

The food sucks so bad we didn't even finish it. I am truly disappointed but even angrier at how these couple can cook / serve something so bad and yet serving it to the people out there.

Don't be fooled by the food pictures, it is totally different from what you get.

So here i am, telling the world to avoid this place. Eat somewhere else. Avoid this place at all cost!
