A restaurant called Pho #1 recently replaced Chilli Thai Bistro at 1799 Commonwealth Ave. in Brighton, right by the Chiswick stop on the Green Line, serving Vietnamese food and more. The Brighton location is the third for Pho #1, which also has locations in Waltham and Woburn, as an employee at the Waltham location confirmed to Eater. Chilli Thai Bistro had been operating in the Commonwealth Avenue space since early 2015.
Pho #1’s menu features Vietnamese dishes as well as dishes from several other Asian cuisines; there’s satay, dumplings, banh mi, takoyaki, and more. Pho #1 also serves Vietnamese soups like bo vien (a noodle soup with beef meatballs) and, obviously, pho.
The new Brighton location is open Monday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. until 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. until 11 p.m., and Sunday from noon until 10 p.m.
