Pho Viet

Pho Viet
162 Parnell Street, Dublin 1

Parnell Street is a haven of affordable and tasty Asian food but Vietnamese restaurant Pho Viet really hits the nail on the head for all of that and more. Main courses come in at around €8.50 and they have very decent servings. You can bring your own wine and beer, with wine corkage at €5 per bottle and beer at €1 per bottle, you can have a delicious meal and an even tastier price.

What has it got?

Seating: All of the chairs are moveable and the tables fit a wheelchair nicely.
Doors: The doors are a little bit heavy but they are wide.
Ground: It’s a tiled white surface, possibly a little slippy when wet.
Stairs: The entrance is flat and there is more seating upstairs.
Bathrooms: They have a wheelchair bathroom on the ground level. It is big and has a lot of hand rails in place. It is home to a Hoover and some old stereos but that is certainly better than a manky smelling mop.
Spaciousness: The tables are all quite close together which means that when it’s busy, you will have to ask people to shimmy aside.
Helpfulness of Staff: The staff are very helpful here. They rearranged tables for me and cleared a path so I could get to the bathroom. They’re also great at recommending which dishes to get.
Parking: There is a wheelchair parking spot across the road outside Fibbers pub.
Rating: 9.5/10
Why did it lose points? It lost half a point simply because it’s a small space and could get tough to move a wheelchair through. Otherwise, it’s a great spot to grab dinner with some mates.
