PhoQ is a new concept in Vietnamese fusion cafe style dining.

PhoQ is now open for lunches! To celebrate we’re throwing some new goodies onto our menu – Pok Pok Chicken Wings, Vietnamese Pork Balls and Bahn Trang Nuong – a kind of Vietnamese pancake topped with goodies for those that don’t know! Of course all our other dishes are still going strong and improving daily. Others on the way – watch this space!

Food concept

Healthy, freshly prepared Vietnamese fusion, including a selection of Pho soup noodles, self-roll salad wraps, fresh prawn rolls, spicy pomelo and papaya salads and Vietnamese style spring rolls. All ingredients are freshly bought on a daily basis and carefully prepared in our open kitchen. Alongside we offer Vietnamese drip coffee, Vietnamese beer and a selection of imported fruit juices including the curiously named Birds Nest and White Fungus juice!

Cafe concept

Located in a beautiful old building in the City Centre, the interior blends the rustic charm of the old structure with our own quirky Art style. Our goal is simple: to bring something new and creative to the Kunming scene, to provide a space which is both comfortable and interesting where customers can enjoy healthy and tasty food at a good price.

Testing Week

As we seek to continually improve and refine our service, we are continuing run our discounted testing week. During this time customers can enjoy a full food and drink selection with 40% off everything. We ask for a little patience from our customers as we tweak and improve, but we hope the 40% off is incentive enough to help us in our testing! During this time we would genuinely be hugely appreciative of any feedback customers can give us on how to improve our food and service.


Like all the best things in life, PhoQ is a little tricky to find! It is located in the old YMCA 1933 building on Ding Xin Jie, just off Bao Shan Jie in the city centre. If coming along Qing Nian Lu, turn West onto Bao Shan Jie and take the second left. Approximately 60m down on the left is an old grey stone building, we are located through the last stone arch about 20 metres inside the courtyard on the right. From the city centre, Bao Shan Jie runs alongside Brilliant Plaza, Ding Xin Jie is the third right.

We look forward to seeing you at PhoQ!

Yep, pretty good. Fairly authentic, they have the special Vietnamese basil and mint to add to your bowl, making the taste close to authentic. Currently large bowl of beef pho on special for 15 kuai, which is damn good value. Even at 25 kuai its not bad, though locals will definitely prefer an 8 kuai la jiao oily mess, this makes for a very good change. Decor is awesome, the boss is nice, the waiters a bit slow but sure to improve. I recommend if near the city centre, worth the small side trip.


Went with my girlffriend the other thinking that the pho wouldn't be so authentic. We were both surprised that it really was like Vietnamese pho and with generous amount of beef. Large bowl 25kuai. Another plus is that the place has a really great designand feel to it.
