Eating Out: Pho Bristol

Before a delightful evening of Classical Music at the Colston Hall, we decided to give the new chain restaurant Pho, which boasts a gluten free menu with vegan options a go. 

We weren’t able to book a table however this wasn’t an issue our hostess guided us to our table and we started by ordering fresh juices, each of the four of us opted for different flavours and no-one was disappointed. 

We ordered Gỏi Cuốn - rice paper rolls with a creamy peanut sauce to start which was very more-ish, and would be an ideal light bite option if you weren’t overly hungry.

For our main course we had Bun Noodles - rice noodles (my partner had veggie rolls, I had tofu and mushroom) with fresh herbs and veggies with a delicious rich sauce. These are incredibly generous portions and neither of us managed to get to the bottom of our bowls! We had a side order of Lotus salad with green beans and sesame seeds. Our friends tried the noodle soup, and the curry (which was quite spicy). Everyone really enjoyed their meals, and we would happily go again. One thing to bear in mind is the size of the portions, and if you are short on time make sure you arrive early because the restaurant can get very busy. 

The staff were knowledgable about vegan dishes, and other allergy queries and in general we were pretty impressed. It was an ideal option the centre of Bristol, and if you have a craving for excellent Vietnamese cuisine this is the place for you!
