Until a few years ago, only a handful of Kathmandu’s food-hunters knew about Vietnamese cuisine and there were not many places serving it. Now, they have the option of choosing among three different locations of a single Vietnamese restaurant—Pho99.
Located at Jhamsikhel, Boudha and Thamel (we recommend the Jhamsikhel outlet as it is outdoors), the restaurant serves authentic Vietnamese food at reasonable prices. Jhamsikhel is the most recent Pho99 outlet and the most pleasing one with its outdoor seating and plenty of greenery.
The restaurant does not spend lavishly in forcing a TikTok worthy ambience as most new businesses do these days. Instead, it focuses on what a restaurant should focus on, the food. Our photojournalist was blown over by Pho99’s food and his excitement in narrating his experience tells us how good it really is.
