Simply the best Pho in Hanoi. Authentic pho at very cheap price. You absolutely have to try it if you are in old town.

Pho has many ways to prepare and Pho Thin is a MUST-TRY as their chef possesses one of the most special recipes. Pho is pre-fried with garlic, so the noodle soup is very flavorful. It would be perfect if you get fried dough soaked in...Pho broth!! Price: a bit too high for a standard bowl (but it's worthy!! Trust me)More

Best pho I've had in my life. Amazing. So simple, yet it was perfect. Don't think I can order pho back home again, just doesn't compare at all. The pickled garlic was so good. Tried pho several times travelling through Vietnam and this was the...best, hands down. Note to travellers, you need to pay before you sit down.More

Actually the pho is “thin” too. Anyway, nice bowl of authentic pho bo. Price is high by Vietnamese standard. Highly recommended if you like beef rice noodles with soup. Don’t forget to pair it with the mini fried fritters.

I has passed by this restaurant at 13:30 on 16/3. Service: 1/5. Noone cleans the table after the old guests' meals, so the entry time looked rather dirty. The whole restaurant at that time had 2 chefs and 1 waiter. Food: I ordered a bowl...of Bap but I don't know if is available, they gave me a bowl of Tai Chin. It is disappointed. Wifi: Cannot connect. Payment: 65,000/bowl of Pho. Pay it before enjoying. :(( Parking: There is no parking space for motorbikes due to a car parked Among Pho restaurants, i will not recommend this to everyoneMore

Having traveled for the last month in Vietnam I have had a lot of their national dish Pho. I didn't realize it before I was here that it is widely a breakfast dish, but I had no trouble having a hot savory bowl for many...a breakfast. I was told by my daughter that Pho Thin was a must go to. They only serve Pho Bo the beef version, a large bowl of wonderfully flavorful broth with thinly sliced beef and green onions. They also serve a Vietnamese savory donut that by themselves are rather plain but when dipped or floated in the Pho was fantastic. I would highly recommend Pho Thin for an authentic Northern Vietnamese Pho that is sure to rank with the best you have ever had.More

Our tour guide told us about Pho Tin and we had the best Pho ever here. The place only serves one dish and you pay as you enter (65,000 VND per bowl) you can also order some fried dough like things if you want. Although...they only serve one type of Pho it is by far the best we have ever had. You sit at long tables or against the wall with other patrons. the service is quick and the place is always busy. We stayed in Hanoi 3 days and ate here twice. Very much worth the price.More

We visited this place off of a YouTube video highlighting Pho Thin. It’s in the French Quarter and pretty easy to find. It’s simple as in you pay first, seat yourself and someone delivers a delicious bowl of Pho...pronounced like “Fuh”, not (Fo). The soup...was fresh and very good. I believe it cost something like $4-$5.00. Very reasonable.More

Recommended from a foodie tour, so we went for it. Community seating - great opportunity to meet new people! And the food was perfect Pho!! Buy the bread (extra) from the guy selling it separately.. Delicious soaked in the Pho broth! The place looks like...some "hole in the wall" which it is but, a great value and even better food!!More

I gave a try to this restaurant, based on the shitload of positive reviews about it. First, it’s quite small place, you will see many locals eating at this place, which is usually a good sign. Then to my surprise, we had to pay before...we could get a seat. A staff member kept saying “money first” without properly explaining the reason. As uncommon as it was for me, I paid, then took a seat to get immediately served without a smile or even an “enjoy your meal”. Quite rude from my opinion. An other shocking view was how dirty the place was. Trash everywhere on the ground, even if bins were near each table. That was kind of disgusting, but then I focused on my dish. The Pho was indeed excellent, it’s far from overrated. Broth was tasty and meat was tender too. To conclude, if you want to go for a good local Pho, this is a place I’d recommend. For attitude, it’s an other matter, but I could give them the benefit of a doubt, even if the place wasn’t even crowded when I came. My ratings are: Service/hygiene 3/5 Pho 5/5More

Pho Thin serves pho with abundant onion leaves. Beef here is stir fried first, giving it a different flavor from the usual pho. The place is a real hole in the wall.

There is only one type of beef noodle together with green onions, you only decide how many bowls you want to order. Donut is a must try. Dip the donut into the soup before you eat. The soup is delicious and I will not feel...thirsty even i drink almost all the soup. Highly recommend.More
