Best Pho in Prague
TOP 7+ tips from locals
It's healthy, filling and warming. And a good hangover cure. Yes, you guessed right, we're talking about Pho soup. Soups in general are very popular in the Czech Republic and given the popularity of Vietnamese cuisine here, we dare say that the popularity of Pho may have surpassed even the traditional Czech potato soup or goulashovka. About the best Vietnamese restaurants in Prague we have already written, this time we will share with you our tips on where to go for the best Pho in Prague.
Pho Vietnam Tuan & Lan
Being the pioneers of Vietnamese cuisine in our country, Pho Vietnam deserves to be the first spot mentioned in this selection of the best Pho in Prague. Frequented by locals and visitors alike, their bistro at Jiřího z Poděbrad Square continues to draw queues for its delicious Pho. A larger second branch near Náměstí Míru offers the same authentic experience.
True to its name, Pho Family not only serves delectable Pho but also offers a warm, familial ambiance. Hailing from the birthplace of Pho, the family has passed down the traditional Pho recipe from generation to generation, ensuring an authentic taste of Vietnam in the heart of Prague.
Chilli and Lime
A great modern Asian restaurant where not only delicious Pho but also other Asian specialties are a must-try. The portions are large, the prices reasonable and the interior full of house flowers offers a nice seating area for lunch and dinner. Reservations in advance are recommended.
We found this place quite by chance on the recommendation of a friend who said it saved him from starvation during his college years. Just because of the very nice (literally student) prices, we are not surprised at all. And then when we visited here for the first time ourselves, it was clear to us that when we ever write about the best Pro in Prague, this bistro simply has to be on the list. And so here it is. The outside may not completely convince, but the pleasant atmosphere, friendly service and especially the first bite definitely do.
When Pho cravings hit in the heart of Prague, Pho Bar is your go-to spot.

The option for takeaway is available, but the pleasant interior encourages a brief pause.
Going for the best Pho in Prague in a café? Why not, after all, in Vietnam Pho is traditionally served for breakfast. Moreover, Cà phê is a café and bistro in one, offering - in the words of the owner - "Vietnamese classics spiced with European style". And the local Pho is really pleasantly flavourful.
Writing about the best Pho in Prague and not mentioning the heart of the Vietnamese community in our country - SAPA market? Can't take that on our conscience.
