When siblings Jerry and David Mai launched a casual Vietnamese street food offering, the most important thing was how to incorporate the best of both worlds.
It needed to be about the flavours and experiences of hawker style eating on the streets of Saigon as much as it represented Victoria’s commitment to produce. It had to show respect to our family based recipes but we also wanted to support local the local farming industry.
The result is Pho Nom where you’ll get authentic Vietnamese food made with some of the highest quality Victorian produce available. It’s fast, fresh, healthy but above all, it’s delicious!
We’re proud of our relationships with suppliers Warialda Beef, Little Creek cattle, Milawa Free Range Poultry and Sher Wagyu and we are excited to be able to bring their produce to your plate.
This is what sets our food apart – we made a conscious decision to go next level and we know that you’ll be able to taste the difference.

Located in the heart of Melbourne's CBD, Collins St is all about fast and fresh during the week.
Open 10am until 3pm Monday through Friday, we promise to take you away from your office on your lunch break. We're busy, brash and loud - you just might think you've escaped to a Ha Noi market instead of downtown Melbourne.
We might look busy but we will have your order up usually within 5 minutes - even though everything is made to order. This is fast food with a slow food mentality.

Pho - vietnam's version of chicken soup for the soul
At this time of year, we're all sniffling and coughing and trying to soldier on when all we really want to do is stay in bed.
If you're feeling under the weather, a pho is a great remedy to help you to feel a bit better. We're not sure if it's the homely nature of the dish, or the healthy and hearty ingredients or just the piles of chilli that we add, but a Pho Nom pho just seems to work.
We're not claiming medicinal benefits - or suggesting that you cancel your doctor's appointment - but we think pho should play a part in your winter health and well-being regime.
Off Menu specialS
The chefs at Pho Nom love creating new dishes based on seasonal produce.
Some of these are advertised on our specials boards, like the Bun Bo Hue (the super popular spicy soup) and the Bun Ca Ri Ga (our take on the Vietnamese chicken curry).
Others are only available for those in the know.
Like the Captain Crunch, a banh mi full of pork and crispy chicken, our off-menu, pimped up specials are only available if you know how to ask for them - just ask nicely and we'll share a world of off-menu treats!
We're always on the lookout for new off-menu creations - let us know if you have an idea and the chefs can go crazy producing something entirely new.
