Chopsticks at the ready! We take a look at the Pho menu...

Love Asian food? Then you need to try Pho (pronounced ‘foe’). Featuring delicious Vietnamese street food bursting with exotic herbs & spices, the Pho menu is packed with flavour and choice. 

Unsurprisingly, their signature dish is pho (pronounced ‘fuh’), a rice noodle soup served with a side of herbs and condiments. Add chilli paste for a spicy kick, fish sauce for extra saltiness, or garlic vinegar for tangy sourness - it's up to you!

With many healthy and low-fat dishes to choose from, there's something for everyone. Whether you've saved your weeklies for a special occasion, or you receive a last-minute invite, there are plenty of PersonalPoints-friendly options to suit all Budgets. Plus, 25% of the Pho menu is vegan - great news for people following a plant-based diet or anyone doing Veganuary!

Fancy a night in with friends? The Pho menu is also on Deliveroo. 

Starters

Starters on the Pho menu are all about dipping, rolling and sharing. Try a classic, veggie CHẢ GIÒ (crispy spring rolls served with lettuce & herbs to wrap & dip) for 11 PersonalPoints (PP).

Like your seafood? Then get your taste buds going with MỰC CHIÊN GIÒN (tender fried baby squid with a salt, pepper & lime dip) for 7-9PP per portion.

Looking for something really light in PersonalPoints? CUỐN DIEP CHAY (the spicy salad rolls with enoki, chilli & herbs) comes to only 1PP per portion.

In the mood for sharing? Why not share the CÁNH GÀ (seasoned, crispy chicken wings served with sriracha) with a friend? That way, you also share the PersonalPoints at 8PP per half a portion.

Mains

Pho

This national Vietnamese dish is perfect for helping beat those winter blues. What could be more comforting than a steaming bowl of hot rice noodle soup (broth), served with a side of herbs and condiments?

  • PHỞ NẤM RƠM (enoki, shiitake & button mushrooms in veggie broth) 8PP
  • PHỞ GÀ (chicken breast in chicken broth) 8-9PP
  • PHỞ TÁI (thinly sliced steak in beef broth) 7PP
  • PHỞ TÔM (king prawns in veggie broth) 8PP

Broken rice

This dish is a real mix of curries, wok fried rice, and rice bowls, all of which come topped with fresh veggies and chilli.

Some sit at the higher end of your PersonalPoints Budget, like the CÀ-RI dishes. For example the CÀ-RI chicken (a rich, fragrant Vietnamese curry) is yours for 27-28PP.

Looking to go a little easier on your Budget? The CƠM TẤM ĐẶC BIỆT TOFU (rice bowl topped with loads of veg & herbs) is 17-18PP. Our top tip: swap the rice for cauliflower rice to bring the PersonalPoints value down to 6-7PP.

Wok-noodles

Yummy flat noodles cooked in a wok? Yes please! At Pho they're served with veggies, protein, and come topped with peanuts and beanshoots. Try the PHỞ XÀO CHICKEN for 11-12PP or the PHỞ XÀO TOFU & MUSHROOM for 17PP.

Bún

If you like the sound of vermicelli rice noodles with a lemongrass and chilli wok-fried topping, go for the bún. It's served with fresh herbs, beansprouts, veggie spring roll and peanuts - delicious!

  • BÚN CHICKEN 7-8PP

  • BÚN TOFU & MUSHROOM 9-10PP

  • BÚN BEEF 8PP

  • BÚN KING PRAWN 6-7PP

Salad

Looking for something lighter, but still want an authentic Vietnamese flavour hit? Try Pho's salads - they're packed with vibrant, crispy, colourful vegetables and added protein (if you wish). They'll definitely change the way you view your 'normal' leafy salad.

  • GÒI GÀ (shredded chicken salad with Vietnamese herbs, peppers and a chilli ginger dressing) 4-6PP

  • GÒI CHAY (veggie salad with Asian herbs, peppers & a chilli ginger dressing) 4PP

  • GỎI ĐU ĐỦ ( vegan chicken salad with Vietnamese herbs, peppers, peanuts and a chilli ginger dressing) 3-4PP

Sides

Fancy a little something extra on the side? Or perhaps something to share? Add one or two of these sides to make a great addition to your meal.

  • CÁI THÁO XÁO (stir fried Chinese leaf in soy sauce) 2-3PP

  • BÁNH PHỒNG TÔM (prawn crackers with sweet chilli sauce) 9PP

  • RAU MUỐNG XÀO (stir fried water spinach in garlic) 2-3PP
