Pho-nomenal Flavors in the Heart of Abu Dhabi

Foodies, listen up! Abu Dhabi’s culinary scene just got a whole lot tastier with the arrival of PHO7 a superb little Vietnamese restaurant thet specializes in Pho. If you haven’t heard the buzz yet, this hidden gem is the latest venture from the masterminds behind Madang Korean, Ola Brazil, and Nuri Grill Bar. And let me tell you, it lives up to the hype.

Nestled in the middle of the new building complex next to Etihad Plaza, Khalifa City, this unassuming eatery might be a tad tricky to find, but trust us, it’s worth the hunt.

Step inside, and you’ll be transported to the bustling streets of Hanoi, with the ethnic decor, high ceilings, bar counter, and even private dining rooms perfect for intimate gatherings.

One of the things that sets PHO7 apart is its commitment to authenticity. The entire staff, including the chef and his team, hails from Vietnam. This means you’re not just getting a bowl of pho, you’re getting a taste of Vietnamese culture, history, and hospitality. And don’t worry, they speak excellent English, so they’re happy to explain any dish on the menu.

Before you dive into the main event (the pho, of course!), be sure to kick off your culinary adventure with PHO7’s tantalizing starters. The fresh spring rolls are a burst of crisp, vibrant flavors, while the grilled skewers are smoky, savory, and utterly addictive. For the indecisive (or just plain hungry), the starter sampler offers a taste of all the popular appetizers.

The menu boasts a mouthwatering array of pho options, from classic beef to extravagant lobster. My personal favorites? The House Special and the Lobster Pho – both are bursting with flavor and leave you wanting more. Don’t miss the fried rice served in a hollowed-out pineapple – it’s a true showstopper.

And to quench your thirst? The fresh coconut drink is a must-try. Served chilled in a whole coconut, the sweet and refreshing milk is the perfect accompaniment to the flavorful dishes.

PHO7 is a culinary adventure that will transport your taste buds to Vietnam without leaving Abu Dhabi. The food is phenomenal, the ambiance is inviting, the staff is friendly, and the portions are generous. What more could you ask for?
