Ambience, style and professionalism. Brilliant service and delicious AUTHENTIC Vietnamese food. Awesome menu. Has the best Vietnamese Pho in Cairns. The Abbott street Pho Viet is miles better than the Night markets and is only a minute from the Night Markets.

The food is great (for Vietnamese in cairns). The only downside is everything comes at once so if you want to stagger your meal order as you need it.

We arrived in Cairns late and tired, and not feeling good. We wanted comfort food - pho and some spring rolls. This place was great - excellent food, friendly service and quite inexpensive. If we lived in Cairns, we'd be regulars.

Ducked in for takeaway rice paper rolls, made to order quite quickly and was tasty however for the price there was only a few slithers of chicken and avo on the full rice noodle body of the rolls.
