Pho 236 is one of the small restaurants on bustling and populated King Street. There's nothing eye-catching about this eatery except the neon sign on its see-through glass walls cum windows and its lighted name signage of red and blue hanging outside its door. Its interiors are bare white walls and ceilings made alive by the lighted menu at the end of the dining hall. The dark brown furnishings of circular tables and matching chairs paired with the pale brown tiles for flooring are notable accents good enough as decor.
Yet, despite the lack of flair common in Asian eateries, Pho 236 is often filled with locals from early lunch to dinner time. The few options listed in their menu are repeatedly sought after by patrons from all over Newtown. They actually specialise in Vietnamese- and Chinese-style soups, which are raved for the rich stock and generous servings. Popular for either dine-in or takeaways are the spring rolls and beef pho.
