Doan is a good-for-nothing man whose only skill is being a delivery boy for the Co Family Pho Restaurant. Orphaned at birth with no knowledge of his past, he was raised only to serve Master Co and his son, Trong, and knows no other way of life.

In his youth, Master Co was one of the only two disciples of Van Cu, the Grand Master of Kung Fu Pho, an art form that mixes the fierceness of fighting with the elegance of cooking in order to create the most renowned noodle dish in all of the land. In their final training task, Co and his rival, Vu, compete to inherit the secret pho recipe and win the title of Kung Fu Pho Master. Vu ultimately prevails.

Twenty-five years later, with the Co Pho restaurant on the brink of bankruptcy and Master Co near death, Doan is tasked with infiltrating the Vu family dojo to steal the secret pho recipe in order to save his master’s business. On his journey he finds an unlikely friend in Jennipho, a potbellied sumo fighter, who helps him become a student of Master Vu. Loyalties are tested when Doan falls for Master Vu’s daughter, Chau Nhi. Will Doan choose between saving the family that raised him or risk everything for a chance at true love? Kung Fu Pho is an action-packed family comedy that will have one laughing and craving for pho simultaneously.
