My colleague and I went to lunch at Golden Bo yesterday. I've been there before in September this year and ordered the Pho Beef soup. It was excellent, the broth was clear and piping hot and the beef was not overcooked and tender. However when I ordered the same dish yesterday, it was really bad! The soup was cloudy, luke... More

Been going here for the pho, lemongrass pork and rice, and vermicelli salad for at least 10 years. Service is always prompt and friendly, and surroundings fairly clean and good. I'd say over the years, the prices have gone up while the portion sizes have remained the same so they aren't really as good value as they used to be,... More

Basically my "Vietnamese love" has been awaken by this restaurant. They serve the best Vietnamese beef noodle (phō bo) in Chatswood without doubt. Their fresh spring rolls are such great refreshment. I recently am falling love with "crispy chicken serve with dry noodle" (it's technically not dry, noodles are stirred in very tasty sauce!) this dish is amazing. I love... More

Phood - the makeover from Golden Bo was definitely very welcoming. The new ambience and menu has been very well done. Congratulations. They serve by far, one of the best raw beef noodle soup around.

Seems we visited in the last week before they shutdown to do a complete renovation (which is well needed) and a restaurant name change. Had the combination beef pho, and I must say it was one of the best broths I have ever had. Not over salted, perfect colour, smooth, flavoursome and fat free. Fantastic. Bit light on the beef...

Can't say enough for this place!! Really tired and busy arriving late for work trip with no cash, these guys sorted everything, food was ready in less than 10 mins with generous serves and great Vietnamese flavours. This will become a work trip staple, thanks for the excellent service!

My husband and I went to Golden Bo for the first time last night and had the most amazing Whole Crispy Skin Snapper in Ginger and Lemon sauce, it was absolutely the best meal we have had in a very long time. The fish was very moist and the flavours were just beautiful. The staff were very friendly and courteous.... More

We've been having weekend lunches in Chatswood for years but have always ignored Golden Bo for some strange reason. On a whim we tried it for acSunday lunch and will definitely return. It was busy at Noon, but service was prompt and friendly. Tea was immediately served. We each ordered a bowl of noodles. Me grilled pork chop with egg... More

My sister and I went to The Zenith Theatre in Chatswood in mid November and were at a loss to find somewhere nice to eat. Chatswood is full of very average restaurants especially around the Concourse Theatre. It is such a shame because Chatswood has really come alive in the last few years and has been planned very well but... More
