First taste at Lincoln’s new Vietnamese restaurant

Delicious and healthy Vietnamese food in the city centre

Vietnamese pancakes, grilled chicken with rice, prawn summer rolls, and various vegetarian and vegan dishes are among the wide range of options on the menu at a new Vietnamese restaurant in Lincoln.

Tina and Steve Huynh ran the Mandarin Chinese Takeaway in Saxilby for over 20 years and are now getting ready to open their next venture, alongside their daughters Celine and Jane, on Wednesday, July 15 – The House of Pho.  It is located near the Odeon cinema in the building which used to house the Mad Turk.

In addition to a fresh, healthy, homemade and varied menu, the restaurant also has a bar licence and will serve drinks including Vietnamese-themed cocktails.
