So Pho So Good is the realisation of a dream to bring Vietnamese food to the heart of Glen Iris in a clean and contemporary environment that is instantly welcoming.

Open for lunch every day and dinner Thursday to Sunday, we offer quick and easy takeaway or convenient dine-in options designed to suit a range of palates. Dishes range in complexity from simple and delicious banh mi (Vietnamese baguette sandwich) to more complex offerings like banh cuon (steamed rice crepes). In addition to these classics, the menu also features a wide variety of vegetarian-friendly options – and every dish is proudly MSG-free.

For those who enjoy a drink with their meal, BYO is welcome. For coffee lovers, only the finest is on offer thanks to acclaimed roastery Padre, perfectly accompanied by hand bottled milk from Fitzroy producer St David Dairy.

Our fitout is an ode to natural beauty and rustic industrial design, with a family (and dog) friendly courtyard at the rear that’s perfect for cosy winter chats or long summer nights. A photo taken in Vietnam by Leo himself hangs behind the counter as a daily reminder of the inspiration behind the menu’s many tasty dishes.

With ample parking out back and entry both via the courtyard and the street, it’s easy and fun to sample the best in Vietnamese food with our laid back, easy and fresh take on lunch and dinner. Come and see us anytime. We’d love to have you.
