We'd been meaning to try Pho Viet on Parnell Street for quite a while. It's effectively the only Vietnamese restaurant in Dublin (at least that we know about). The place looks like a bit of a 'hole in the wall' from the outside but it's generally buzzing on the inside which is always a good sign.
The restaurant is housed in an old Georgian building which has quite a bit of character. We were led up the stairs and ensconced at a table along the wall.
