Named for Vietnam’s famous and globally beloved soup, but touting itself as a restaurant inspired by Vietnamese cuisine, this is an Asian eatery in the heart of Singapore’s Tanjong Pagar that goes far beyond your usual Vietnamese offering. Pho Stop specialises in pho, as you might guess, but there’s enough fusion magic happening at this chic joint down Tanjong Pagar Road to attract significant interest from Singapore’s crowded foodie scene. Plus, upstairs you can find The Bar Above, where you can wet your glib whistle before or after you soak up some pho.
Pho Stop’s chilled atmosphere, walls busily hung with Vietnamese ephemera and the whole place very much a la mode in terms of decor, makes it a popular spot along Tanjong Pagar Road for a quick coffee – Vietnamese filter-style of course – or a fresh juice. Or booze. What’s great about Vietnamese food in Singapore is the sympathetic climate that this particular Southeast Asian cuisine calls its natural home. A bowl of pho goes down just as well as a winter warmer in, say, Melbourne, Australia as it does here as a way to beat the heat – nothing like a bowl of delicately flavoured broth, laden with coriander and chilli, and packed with the right balance of thinly sliced rare beef or tender chicken and noodles to keep you on track.
Pho Stop is indeed a one stop shop for Vietnamese cuisine in Singapore, comprehensive in scope and Southeast Asian character. Besides the wonderful gift of pho, this Tanjong Pagar gem offers salads and sides (Vietnamese chicken salad and summer fresh rolls with prawn, for instance), plenty of colourful and healthy vegetarian options, Vietnamese bun and rice dishes, and exotic desserts. It’s also very important to remember, that upstairs from Pho Stop sits the understatedly named The Bar Above, a watering hole with an enviable al fresco terrace overlooking the Singapore skyline. It appears that in the end Pho Stop is a two stop shop for your culinary pleasure.
The food was good and healthy, vegetarian options available. atmosphere cozy, prices reasonable. Nice place to go out for dinner. I would recommend it for dinner.
A cozy place at affordable price too. 5 to 10 min from Tanjong Pagar station
Good place, fairly quiet - incredible price. Pho is great, but I would give the spring rolls a miss the next time, they are a little skimpy for the price. Pho is on point.
Staffs are attentive and fast. reserved the roof terrace but was too hot a day and staffs willingly change the arrangement for me. The food is good, worth trying
Great (slightly localised) Vietnamese food at reasonable prices. They don't tout themselves as serving authentic Vietnamese fare, but rather "Vietnamese inspired cuisine". But don't worry cos Pho Stop does food well. It's not what you'd find in eateries in Saigon (or Joo Chiat) but their version of Vietnamese is definitely delicious. Servings are generous and priced very reasonably, too.
Great food, nice ambience and affordable prices! Had the grilled chicken dry noodles, generous portion of grilled chicken and the noodles was springy and not too dry. Coconut ice cream was delicious too, sadly the hot favourites - Vietnam Coffee, Honey Cinnamon were sold out! Will try again the next time!
I ate the Pho beef combo, chicken wings and fish cake. The Pho soup base is tasty and the chicken wing and fish cake taste delicious. One of the best Vietnam Pho I have tasted. Prices are reasonable and the place is clean. Air conditioning is on the weak side.
Tasty food and reasonable priced. The pho portion is generous as well as the beef, tender and not overcooked. Great happy hour prices and selection of regional beer. Service is actually good tho they might not smile as much as you expect, but the staff are busy. The bar above is quiet as not many folks knew about it.
This was a great place for a team lunch! The food was memorably delicious, had great value, and had an abundant choice. I made an online reservation as we were 8 and it was super easy to do! I will definitely come back here with friends.
The ambiance and feel is lovely. The staff looked nice and busy. But the broth of the pho (beef and beef ball) was slightly disappointing. It tasted a bit commercial. I've tried pho at a nearby hole-in-the-wall, so the expectation was there. Otherwise, I look forward to trying The Bar Above.
