Finding fresh, authentic pho in Amsterdam is becoming increasingly easier due to the growing number of excellent Vietnamese and Asian-fusion restaurants in the city. Although pho originated as street food, restaurants in Amsterdam tend to serve it as a main course, whilst other even base their entire menus around this delicious, noodle soup. Here are the best places to eat pho in Amsterdam.

1. Restaurant Pho

Restaurant, Vietnamese

The sheer number of mouthwatering Vietnamese delicacies on offer at Restaurant Pho is always astounding and the restaurant has really gone the extra mile when it comes to quality, variety and authenticity. Whilst their menu mainly gravitates around pho dishes, there are also many of delicious Vietnamese meals available at Restaurant Pho including bo buns.

Finding great places to eat in de Pijp is rarely a chore, thanks to the high concentration of excellent restaurants in the neighbourhood. Pho 91, for example, is among the most chilled out hangouts in Amsterdam and serves a deliberately modest menu in order to ensure that all of their food is fresh, delicious and authentic. Apart from pho, their kitchen also serves an impressive selection of bo buns, with all the trimmings.

3. Pho House

Restaurant, Oceanian

Pho House lies just north of Westerpark and is located inside Spaarndammerbuurt – an architecturally remarkable neighbourhood in western Amsterdam. Although their menu mainly revolves around pho dishes, other Vietnamese delicacies are also available, including summer rolls and goi ga salad. Despite its relatively small size, Pho House is always exceptionally accommodating.

5. Taste of Vietnam

This classy establishment in de Jordaan makes unbelievably rich and delicious pho, which is available as a starter or main course. Like all good Vietnamese restaurants, the Taste of Vietnam only prepares its food with fresh ingredients and avoids overly spicy recipes in order to create authentic, filling dishes. They also stock an impressive selection of French wines.

6. Little Siagon

Little Saigon’s menu is completely dedicated to Vietnamese street food and features many staple dishes such as thit nouang satay, bo buns and goi cuon salad rolls. Although primarily a takeout joint, Little Saigon does have a small dining area and will gladly house guests. The pho is always spot on and works wonders alongside an ice-cold Saigon beer.
