Best pho in the city hands down. Their "master beef" pho is delicious. For me personally, what separates Bar Pho from other pho places - like naughty chef - is the attention to detail. Things like their beef fresh, not frozen. You can tell because the protein from frozen beef leaks out when hot soup is poured on it, which clouds the soup, but Bar pho's broth stays beautifully clear. The clearness also tells me they skim off their impurities after boiling. The broth also has a great texture - not thin and weak like most places - which you can only get after boiling bones for hours. They top it off with fresh herbs and you can really smell the aromatics in the broth - some don't like it, but if you do, you'll be hooked. For an extra $2, get the Bone Marrow - A gorgeous piece of bone with meat falling off it. Trust me, you won't regret it.

I work next door and ate here everyday for a week to see if it was hit/miss and I can honestly say the food was consistently excellent every single time - which can hardly be said for many establishments, let alone one in it's fledgling moments. Get in before the secret gets out and the line starts growing. Well done guys. Hats off to you - keep up the great work.

I can only agree with Julian's comments on Bar Pho. I can only say, work your way through the entire menu, you won't be disappointed. The pho is outstanding, no MSG or additives, just 18hrs + slow coo...ked stock. The salads are fresher than fresh and full of Vietnamese herbs (the various mints and perilla are so tasty and add a new dimension). If you have a hangover or feeling down, the pho is the equivalent of good old Jewish chicken noodle soup for healing purposes. If you want spice get the spicy pho, agree the marrow is to die for. The rice wrap rolls are fantastic and a cut above all other rolls in the city, And the home made chilli is fantastic, and hot hot hot, so use with care :). I am hooked on Bar Pho, and not only the best Vietnamese street food in the CBD but served by the nicest people, great food cooked and served by great people. See More

Delish. Gingery broth with fresh meat and veggies. Also low carb Daikon noodles for those of us watching our carb intake. Love it!

It looked so promising but I was disappointed with the broth. A bit too sweet and the star anise was overpowering. I think this has huge potential but for now I will stick to Suncorp building's Naught...y Chef.... See More

Hands down the best Pho I've had in a long time. Great staff and you can tell the owner is passionate about his work.

Honestly, It was the most yummy broth I've ever had for Pho but too small amount of meat for the large size bowl.

5 years ago today Niels and I set up a humble stall @bondifarmersmarket. It was raining ☔️ and we sold 30 or so bowls of pho and went away happy. A lot has happened during these years and amazing people we have met along our journey. Thank you Bar Pho lovers ❤️ 😊 🎼 we’ve only just begun 🎼 #barpho #healthyeating #soulfood #vietnamesefood

Bar Pho shared a post.
Tina Do is with Jessica Conroy and Melissa Saadat.

As some of you who have listened to me ( I know my staff have no choice every Monday after a hike ) go on and on about me walking on the weekend for hours and h...ours I can totally share with you now the reason why.

Over the last few years I have felt totally blessed and grateful of my Bar Pho journey to date. Its been a ride and one in which I have loved every moment, the people who I have met along the way both customers, mentors and now friends have truly inspired me, supported and confirmed we are on the right track. I am so lucky to do what I do every day.

Unfortunately not everyone is so lucky and so I wanted to do something that will make a difference to people's lives in some small way. Our biggest mission at Bar Pho is to do this through one bowl at a time,,,, hopefully by my hiking one step at a time.

Me and my fabulous team have been training for 6 months now. At the end of August we will do the Oxfam 100km straight over two days through our glorious parklands.

Any support is great either through verbal or if you feel so kind by donating to me and the team...on below link. See you all soon if not for a bowl of pho, a drink definitely after this massive hike. X

Marrow bones are essential to our Pho. It not only adds flavour but fulfils many vital roles due to its high content of vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids. If your wondering if drinking broth is good for you the answer is yes as it's definitely helps the immune system by carrying oxygen to cells in the body. It is one of the most effective remedies for the gut lining. We just ❤️our pho golden pot with the marrow fat, we add a little bit to each bowl so you get all the good benefits!!!! #barpho #18hourmasterstock #masterstock #grassfedbeef #pho #msgfree #marrowbones #vietnamesesoulfood

The two most influential women in my life. I know grandma you are always with me and guiding me through everyday decisions. Mum you are everything to me...words cannot express how lucky I am to share lots of great moments together with you especially over the last few years creating this little empire of ours. Both laughter and tears but it's these moments I will cherish forever. Happy Mother's Day Mum and to every mums out there #barpho #authentic #tradition #vietnamesesoulfood

DAIKON NOODLES DAIKON NOODLES DAIKON NOODLES DAIKON NOODLES 🍲 As of today you will be able to ask for Daikon Noodles in your pho. I have been trailing this on myself for months now and love it, guilt free pho . Daikon is a white radish vegetable and we consider it as a superfood. It contains large amounts of enzymes that aid in fat and starch digestion as well as high levels of vitamin C, phosphorus and potassium. It also contains other phyto-nutrients that fight cancer. Combining this with our master broth is a winner!!! We will be bring this to market also #barpho #vietnamesefood #soulfood #daikonnoodle #lowcarb #msgfree #glutenfree #paleo #masterstock
