Pho Toronto

The Best Pho in Toronto

The best pho in Toronto is comfort in a bowl that warms the soul from the inside out. This satisfying Vietnamese noodle soup comes in numerous variations and sizes, with fragrant broths and all sorts of toppings, not to mention add-ins like sprouts, herbs, chillies and sauces.

Here are the best bowls of pho in Toronto.


Golden Turtle

This ever-popular Vietnamese restaurant on Ossington offers three generously portioned sizes of pho: small, large and extra large (like most other pho joints, the menu skips over medium). It even makes a vegan stock for its tofu and vegetable pho.

Just down the street from Golden Turtle is this cash-only, rival spot for pho on Ossington. Heated debates about which place is better and who has the superior broth tend to ensue between pho-lovers, but both have their merits.

Perpetually busy, this bustling Chinatown institution on Spadina has about a dozen different kinds of noodle soups on offer (to be ordered by size and number, of course). The house special, pho hung dac biet, marries rare and well-done beef with tripe and tendon, accompanied by rice noodles in a beef broth.

Choose from 17 different variations of pho at this Vietnamese joint in the Junction. An array of topping combos include rare and well-done beef, tripe, brisket, beef balls, tendon, chicken or even shrimp, and there are also meat-free options for vegetarians.

With locations in Scarborough and Markham, Pho Metro is known for friendly, efficient service and a menu offering at least 15 kinds of pho. Try the #3, which consists of a generous portion of rice noodles (regardless of which size you choose) served with tender chunks of beef brisket in a flavourful and clear beef broth.

Lac Vien Pho

Locations in the Castlefield Design District and Scarborough (plus one in Mississauga) serve up some interesting pho offerings, like Thai-influenced tom yum pho (with beef, chicken or shrimp), or beef or chicken satay pho. There are even seafood and veggie versions in addition to the more typical beef and chicken toppings.
