Pho 24 Restaurant Review, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam: Pho Bo

We typically try to stay away from chain restaurants and stick to local joints, but we stumbled upon Pho 24 and keep coming back. When you visit one of the Pho 24 locations you know you’ll get a big bowl of delicious pho filled with quality cuts of meat for a reasonable price. And the food always comes out super fast!

If you’re hungry and looking for a bowl of pho made with quality ingredients in a sanitary restaurant, then Pho 24 is a where to go! They have locations all over Ho Chi Minh City so you won’t have to go far to find one.

The Ambiance

Don’t expect anything fancy at Pho 24. You’ll order your soup at the counter where they have a spread of ingredients behind the glass so you can see the soup as it’s made.

Then you’ll get a number and sit at one of the simple wooden tables. Even though this is a popular chain with locals and foreigners, you’ll rarely have any trouble finding a seat.

One of the best parts about eating at Pho 24 is that it’s always spotlessly clean and air-conditioned!

The Menu

As you can probably tell by its name, pho is the most popular dish served at Pho 24. We love the well-done beef brisket pho because it has thin slices of quality beef and well-seasoned broth. Their fried spring rolls are also a great choice if you’re hungry for more than just soup.

The kumquat juice is very sour but delicious, especially when the ice melts and waters it down a bit.

Keep in mind that Pho 24 doesn’t have napkins and you’ll need to pay 3k VND for a wet wipe. This is common at restaurants all over Vietnam.

The Pricetag

The prices at Pho 24 are a bit more than you’d pay at a roadside joint but still totally reasonable. Pho prices range from 40k – 70k depending on your meat choice and whether you get a regular or large size.

They also have combo meals that come with a drink that will save you a little money.

Our Recommendation

As mentioned earlier, we love the well-done beef brisket pho. Get a regular-sized bowl because it’s still massive, and a side of fried spring rolls. Also, bottled water is surprisingly overpriced at Pho 24 so bring your own or opt for a glass of kumquat juice instead.

Location: Pho 24 has 16 locations around Ho Chi Minh City. The locations we visit most often are at 71 Lý Tự Trọng and 85 Đồng Khởi in District 1.
