Sydney's Best Pho?

An Restaurant, Bankstown. Five reasons why.

1. They are the experts! An Restaurant sells one thing and one thing only - pho.
2. The delicious pho. Chicken or beef. Same superior stock. No after-meal MSG effect.
3. The waiters. PDA-clad and super efficient, they expect you to know what to order as soon as you sit down. Oh, no menu is provided unless you ask for one.
4. The patrons. Surely the Vietnamese community knows where to go for the best pho!
5. The Gourmet Traveller says so. "An Restaurant does hands-down the best Vietnamese beef noodle soup outside, well, Vietnam."

We always call this place McPho because the service is so speedy. And I love the little saucers of sate on the side too.

Lots of my friends really love Pho An, it's really crossed over very well, many of the other nice Pho restaurants are still relatively undiscovered.

Nice post!

Hehe hubby is crazy for Pho! I think he'd jump at the chance to go here! :)

thanks for the entry! I'm updating the roundup :)

BTW, thumbs up for Pho An from my friends in Sydney too. And we are picky northern Vietnamese eaters :D

I am obsessed with pho. I go to Springvale or Richmond in Melbourne. Good to know of a good Sydney option. Now I want some pho!!

now the noodlies poll is closed i can tell you Pho An came a very close second in Sydney's Best Pho.. it's my sister's fav pho place too!

Oooh contentious! lol My friends and I always argue about Cabramatta Pho vs. Bankstown Pho but I'm firmly on the side of Pho An, I grew up eating here on Saturday mornings and nothing compares!

BTW, my record for order to table... 30 seconds!

I can't remember the last time I was even in the vicinity of Bankstown! But might just have to make the trek just for good pho :)

The best Pho ever ! I have been going there with my children almost every second week the last 10 years.
