In Vietnam, the food made on the side of the streets in small carts is as good a quality as the food you'll find in the top restaurants in London.  Basically, the Vietnamese know what they're doing.  Street food stalls have boomed in London in every cuisine imaginable, but sometimes it's best to go back to where it all started.  I wish I could say that I went to Vietnam to sample the best of the best, unfortunately I didn't, so it's onto the next best thing.  Pho is a family run restaurant serving authentic Vietnamese street food.  They have a few restaurants dotted around London including inside Westfields.  It's a great place to go for a relaxed lunch, especially if you're super hungry as the food comes insanely quick.  The speciality at Pho is in it's name, Vietnamese noodle soup called Pho!  They also serve a variety of wok fried flat noodle dishes, colourful salads and delicious summer rolls.  To look at the menu or find out more about Pho click here. 
Once you've orderd you're sent away with this device which buzzes to alert you when you're food is ready.
I ordered the Pho Ga (chicken breast in chicken stock).
The Pho comes with a side plate of garnishes. My advice? Tear the whole lot up and throw it all in.  It's given to you for a reason!
Summer rolls with king prawns and a peanut dipping sauce.
My Pho Ga with everything thrown in.
Delicious dipping.
No surprises, an empty bowl.
