    Pho Viet is located along the Beach Street in a post war building. It is quite noticeable due to its red shop sign and oriental lanterns decorations. Founded in 2016, Pho Viet serves authentic Vietnamese cuisine and only uses healthy and fresh ingredients fr their dishes. They also strongly adhere to their no MSG and artificial preservatives policy to ensure their dishes are clean and healthy! Despite pho and banhmi being the most signature dish, they also serve Vietnamese style home cooked dishes. This restaurant's size is small due to its location but their interior feels very cozy.

Their name 'Ăn Viet' literally means 'Eat Viet' in Vietnamese and they strongly follow their 'food-losophy' of using quality ingredients to produce authentic dishes from scratch. The restaurant's interior looks modern with lighting that compliments the little bit of wood,green and blue. An Viet's signature dish definitely also goes to their pho in which the beef balls in them are made from 100% fresh beef meat. If you had the chance, don't pho-get to try out their deep friend sticky rice ball which is made with lots of work and deep fried at a perfect timing! Most importantly, the glutinous rice ball only has limited quantity so, good luck!
