Went there on a Saturday lunch, it wasn't busy. Food was good and pricy as everywhere in Geneva. Service was quick.

Cho Lon is located in pâquis district near Cornavin train station. The restaurant is ok but a bit smelly. The food was good: we had papaya salad and pho soup. The soup was good but the quality of the beef not outstanding. A good place to go but far from spectacular.

Food- we ordered pho and beef vermicelli noodles. Both meals were of good portion and were very authentic in flavour Dessert - banana fried with coconut ice cream also delish! Service was quick and easy. Price - reasonable for Geneva or Switzerland. We paid CHF 71 for two mains, one dessert and one ice coffee. We would return!

I have been in Europe for over a year and haven't found a pho place that has grabbed my attention. Cho Lon is by far the best pho place I have tried in Europe. I have only tried places in Paris and Prague. The meat and broth were good. The noodles weren't as thick as Paris and Prague (a plus... More

This restaurant was one of our very favorite places in Geneva. We have in the past brought friends to the restaurant who formerly lived in Vietnam or Cambodia, and they agreed the dishes could be compared to some of the better meals they had there. For various reasons, we had not managed to get there for several months and discovered... More

This is a Vietnamese restaurant, so have the typical Vietnamese dishes! Phô is great, and so is the spicy version of it ("Imperial"). It's not a fancy place, but very good and solid for the typical dishes.

The pho was okay. San Francisco and Geneva have very comparable prices for food so I was shocked to see a bowl of noodle soup priced at $26! In SF prices range from $9-15. It's broth with noodles and meat! The flavor of the broth was okay but nothing to write home about, (didn't taste like 24 hr beef stock... More

Came here for dinner and had the prawns. It was absolutely delicious and I would come back just for this. The restaurant itself had a nice welcoming feel as you enter and the decor was lovely Vietnamese style - simple and not over the top. We were early for dinner and were the first ones there, but later the restaurant... More
