Rain or shine, is there anything better than diving into a big ol’ bowl of noodles? Here are our top picks for Perth’s best pho.
Trang’s Cafe and Noodle House
Bowls of noodle soup you could almost dive straight into? Check. Warm tea and peanuts upon entry? Check. Succulent pork chops? Check. Crazy low prices? Check! This place really ticks all the boxes, and the bustling, busy crowd that travels there from all over Perth can attest to that.

Pho 447 Asian Kitchen
After relocating from Dao Vien in Northbridge, Floreat’s teeny-tiny Pho 447 still packs a punch. We’re fans of all of their noodle soups, including (controversially?) their laksa, but you’ve gotta go for their pho at least once. Choose from beef, beef and meatballs or chicken, and be prepared to fight the locals for a table.
1/447 Cambridge Street, Floreat
Roll Vs Bowl
One of our favourite cheap eats, Roll Vs Bowl’s banh mi and pho are a bargain hunter’s dream. Their fresh, delicately flavoured pho sets you back less than $11, and with just a few options available, you won’t have to labour too long over your order – giving you all the more time to slurp up your soup.
Shop 138, Coventry Village, 243-253 Walter Road West, Morley
If you’ve got even a casual interest in Vietnamese food, you’ve surely hit up Tra Vinh for a feed. This Highgate hotspot (plus their Northbridge and Girrawheen locations) is a favourite for noodle lovers, with plenty of varieties of pho, hu tieu, and other noodle soups available to sate you hunger, no matter your tastes.
149 Brisbane Street, Highgate
3/297 William Street, Northbridge
4/70 Marangaroo Drive, Girrawheen
This low-key Mount Lawley lunch bar has been a pho and banh mi favourite of locals for years. Tucked away on Beaufort Street in between Walcott Street and Queens Crescent, and with no online presence to speak of, Sunshine is about as unassuming as it comes – but their flavourful menu has meant a loyal following of devotees. Generous sizes at reasonable prices make it an all round hit.
683A Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley
Phong Dinh Noodle House
Morley noodle house Phong Dinh is matched in the tastiness of its authentic Vietnamese fare only by the warmth of its service. Consistently friendly, fast and fresh, all reasonably priced… this unpretentious spot will impress even the pickiest of noodle lovers. What’s not to love?
2/4 Progress Street, Morley
