The Naughty Chef: Vietnamese, Wynyard, CBD Sydney (6 May 2014)

Shop H04, Hunter Arcade, Wynyard Station, Sydney NSW 2000

Naughty by nice pho

The Naughty Chef has been one of my long standing favourites for a good pho fix in the CBD. Located underground between Hunter Connection and Wynyard Station this hole-in-the-wall counter delivers quick service. Seating is available in their 'Noodle Room' a few doors down adorned with crookedly hung Vietnamese decorations. Prices have crept above $10 over the years but I think still holds as a cheap and cheerful place for some simple and consistent comfort dishes. Spicy Beef Pho ($11) had a tasty and flavoursome broth with a decent chilli kick for me.

Other visits reviewed: 

PROS: Good pho, Decent flavour, Prices have come up over the years but I think still reasonable for what you get
CONS: Finding a seat during lunch time can be a challenge, Be careful when carrying your tray of hot pho to find a seat
MUST TRY: Spicy Beef Pho
VERDICT: For a pho fix this place should do the trick and I think is above average compared to many other offerings around the CBD
Spicy Beef Pho ($11) — tasty and flavoursome broth, decent chilli kick for me but you can add extra
