Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely and friendly service. Two phos (packed separately) to takeaway. I've been making this particular trip once a week for about 5 years. And sometimes I'll go there to eat on my own as well. 😁 Order on the right, wait on the left.

Beautiful food with an easy menu to order from. Took friends who were new to Vietnamese food and they loved it! We ordered the chicken bowl, avocado roll as well as a beef pho... All splendid! Light, refreshing yet deliciously flavoured and filling. Great prices...too with delightful service!More

One of the best oriental food i ever tried. Fast, cheap and delicious.👍 Pork with rice and spring rolls has the best oriental taste, sweet and spicy.

I had dying to try pho for ages and in particular, Phoreal in Kingston. I ordered the beef combo (flash-fried steak, meatballs and brisket) which came in a delicious broth and accompanying herbs, vegetables and sauces, so you can jazz your pho up if you...wish. The noodles had the perfect balance between crunchy and smooth and the broth was flavourful. Service was decent considering it was Xmas Eve when we went though one criticism is that they could have made the broth a bit warmer.More

Incredibly tasty food, at an unbelievably cheap rate. The Banh Mi is a taste explosion - I had the pork and the Prawn Spring Rolls with delicious peanut satay. We also got the pork noodles as in the pic.

I was out shopping and thought i would have a quick lunch, i was leaning towards trying the Burger Bros as they have great reviews and i love a good burger. As i was passing Phoreal the smell of charred marinated pork and chicken on...the bbq was too much to just walk pass and ignore. I opted for the pork and rice dish for £7.50, there was a big queue but well worth the wait and testiment to how good the food is. When it arrived the helpful lady asked if i wanted crispy onions on top and did i want it spicy or mild. I went for spicy and crispy onions and sat down to devour the tastiest pot of food you could wish for. There was loads of bbq pork over rice with cucumber, coriander, chilli paste and crispy onions. It was not really spicy as you get in Thai food but i'm sure she would of put more chilli paste if i wanted. To be honest it just did not need it and 2 hours later i am still salivating over it and looking forward to going again. Please try this place and dont walk past like i have done so many timesMore

Another perfect Pho. Fresh, crunchy veg, tender meat and lashings of chilli. The staff, as ever, were friendly and proficient. Also, it seems to be the kind of place where strangers happily chat amongst themselves whilst they eat. Great place!

Very popular market stall selling tasty, good value Vietnamese food. There is a long queue for good reason as the food is assembled to order. The baguettes and summer rolls are excellent and I enjoyed both for less than £10.

Hi. Sorry for the late answer. As it is a street food stuff, you have to order at the counter. Give it a try: you'll come back!
