Never had Vietnamese food before but this was excellent. The service was first class and friendly. The food was so fresh and tasty. No negatives at all.

If you are looking for a proper traditional Vietnamese pho then this is your place! The food is delicious and cheap too. Me and my partner have been over ten times! Saw a bad review further down saying "some of the beef was raw"... I couldn't help but laugh, that's the way it is meant to be. The beef cooks... More

The food in here is fantastic, it is a gem hidden away in Chinatown. You must go here, the phó is incredible and the starters are tasty. Cannot recommend enough!

Met a friend coming in from Horwich for lunch, decided to meet here. My pho was delicious, and the friend (who had no experience with Vietnamese food) did one of the vermicelli dishes. She loved it. Decor is a bit on the kitschy side, and looks a bit dated, but the service was good! If I lived a bit closer,... More

Tucked away in a basement in Chinatown with predominantly Far Eastern patrons this place looked promising. Brightly lit, with mica top tables and some slightly over-the-top decorations (my favourite was an artificial cherry tree in full bloom standing in the middle of the place. I had some very tasty minced pork spring rolls and a mixed meat pho. The pho... More

Living in rural Scotland, we don't get many opportunities to have Vietnamese food. We were on holiday in Manchester and were delighted to walk by I Am Pho. We practically ran inside. We already knew that we wanted some Vietnamese rolls. We spent some time trying to decide what to get. We each got a bowl of gorgeous Pho -... More
