One of the best Vietnamese food in the city area of Singapore. You will love the BBQ chicken banh mi and the beef pho which are both extremely popular. Moc Quan is a casual restaurant, good for families with kids or a quick meal on your own. Highly recommended.

Not the prettiest restaurant in town, and you'll have to wait in line for a table, but definitely delicious and very authentic Vietnamese!

I have lived and have eaten A LOT of great food and Pho in vietnam, so I will definitely recommend Mrs. Pho to anyone looking for delicious Vietnamese food in SIngapore. I love the cozy space, big menu with diverse Vietnamese cuisine and very affordable price (all under $10), and last but not least, it’s the friendly, kind staff that makes you feel welcomed to come back. Thank you for your authentic taste of Vietnamese food.
