Story About us

Un-pho-gettable

Vietnamese food offers a tantalising range of moreish dishes, with plenty of colours, crunch, aromas and incredible flavours.

But if we had to choose one single dish as a symbol of the nation, it would likely be the Pho – Vietnamese Noodle Soup. Deceptively simple, yet decidedly addictive, this noodle soup is a staple food of Vietnam and also of I Love Pho customers!

A good Pho boils down to the broth. We've built up a loyal base of fans who come from far and wide to sample our beef pho, along with our many other delights. We have a great menu selections including vegan, Halal and gluten-free.

COVID-19 and I Love Pho

With the COVID-19 pandemic, small business owners were gravely affected and our Vietnamese restaurant is one of the many food caterers in Sydney that had to adapt with the situation.

Our small team managed to innovate through hard times and took care of each other’s needs while also taking care of the business and our customers who come back and return for a heartwarming experience through our authentic Vietnamese food.

Truly un-pho-gettable, this experience has taught us a lot in terms of managing our business, and in knowing our staff and customers better.

With the onset of another lockdown, we have learned how to move around the situation and even had ways of meeting customer demands through authentic Vietnamese food that is truly comforting during these challenging times.

From changing our operation hours to adding flexible food items that can be prepared at home, I Love Pho will continue to strive better in serving our customers and in delivering Vietnamese food people have enjoyed and eaten.


COVID-19 Safety Information


Innovation not only through food but also through service is one of the things I Love Pho did as a Vietnamese food restaurant. Based in Sydney, I Love Pho offers contactless delivery service, all day, from Mondays to Thursdays.

We also accept New South Wales Dining Vouchers for takeaways and perhaps one of the best things we also did was have a DIY Vietnamese Noodle Pack good for four people available for pre-order!

We also have other frozen Vietnamese food goodies available at CHAO Catering website if you plan on having a full Asian food catering for a small dinner with friends or family. We take extra steps in ensuring each food that goes out of our kitchen is not only prepared with care and love, but with safety in mind.

In better times, our small Vietnamese food restaurant will once again open for dine-in with safety precautions in place. This ensures safety for all customers who want to experience authentic Asian food in Crows Nest and for our kitchen staff who work tirelessly in making these Vietnamese dishes come to life, fresh daily.

I Love Pho assures customers that these safety precautions are implemented and are done routinely. This makes it possible for us to operate safely even with the lockdown in place and while the COVID-19 pandemic is active.
