Find out what's the best way to reheat your pho and why Vietnamese food is so good for you.
How to Reheat and Enjoy our Takeaway Pho
We recommend you level-up your pho dining experience by reheating your takeaway or home delivered pho as follows:
Put aside fresh herbs, garnishings & rare "tai" beef (if any)
Put noodles, meats and any veggies in a ceramic bowl & fully submerge it in our legendary 8-hour bone soup.
Cover bowl & microwave for 5min or until hot. Note - if you're reheating your pho from cold, please add another 2-3 minutes microwave time.
Now top your bowl with garnishings (and tai beef if applicable). Enjoy!
Pro tips: Bean sprouts are added to cool down the soup. Some people like to add hoisin and sriracha sauces, lemon juice, basil and fresh chilli. Use a soup spoon for soup. Use chopsticks to pick up noodles and/or meats. Slurping soup from the bowl isn’t a normal thing for Vietnamese people, but if it tastes good, go for it!

Our guarantee to you:
Food leaves our restaurant freshly cooked, sealed and carefully packaged. The Delivery Platform's Rider then check the content and accepts the delivery.
It is now the responsibility of the Delivery Platform's Rider to bring food to you complete, hot and on time.
In the event there are issues with your order being rejected, your food delivered late, cold or damaged, please direct your enquiry to your preferred Delivery Platform.
If your food arrives late or cold via food delivery platforms...
One biggest misunderstanding with customers ordering through the Delivery Platforms is in thinking that our kitchen is responsible for food arriving late or cold. But in fact, most of the time the Delivery Platform may have problems finding a Rider, or the Rider had to pick up and drop off multiple orders. On our part, our kitchen preparation time for delivery is fast, generally below 10 minutes. We've been cooking delicious Vietnamese food for over 13 years so we get pretty good at what we do. The stats speak for itself (prep time compared to other restaurants in the area, source: Deliveroo), and our ratings out of 5-star (source: Uber Eats).
