Pho Toronto

The Best Pho in Toronto

The best pho in Toronto is the perfect bowl of Vietnamese soup noodles. Complex flavours, especially in the bone broth, make up this dish that satisfies at all times of the day. Drop in a sprig of mint leaves or a whole plate of bean sprouts to take your bowl's delicate balance of flavours to the next level. 

Here's where to get the best pho in Toronto.

It's cash only at this Ossington staple with the cotton candy-coloured motif. One of two major phở players on the strip, the decades-old debate over whose bowl is better continues. For now it appears the people have spoken.

Rua Vang, or as its known by its English name, Golden Turtle, has been serving up phở since 1987. It rarely as busy as its Ossington rival Pho Tien Thanh, meaning shorter wait times for their excellent soup noodles.

Great prices that have gone up only slightly over the years have warranted the deserved devotion of regulars at this College and Dufferin staple. You'll likely encounter a lineup on weekends here but turnover is quick.

Pho Huong

Find this modest restaurant in the Junction, where regulars flock for more than 17 choices of no-nonsense bowls of Vietnamese noodles and maybe some bo la lot. Prices are pretty good, there are a number of vegetarian options, plus service here is quick.


Pho 90

Weston Road's recent Vietnamese arrival is the newest contender to hit the list. The massive interior is matched only by the portions. Choose from nearly 15 phở options including chicken and vegan broth options and a version with chopped beef instead of sliced.

Head to this plaza joint on Dufferin Street for their huge bowls of Vietnamese soups with bouncy rice noodles. Expect a lineup during busy hours of people looking to dine in at this faux tree-decorated restaurant.

East Chinatown's restaurant-in-a-house is the gem of the neighbourhood. Grab a rare beef pho or pho dac biet (the meat combo with tripe and brisket) and an obligatory side of banh cuon to eat on the porch.
