Oh dear.........

Friend an I went for a meal an very disappointed with the food. It tasted just like a normal every day Chinese takeaway an was expensive. We expected it to be something special but just found it to be non description. We will not return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here recently. The staff were warm and friendly, especially the owner who was very attentive and made us feel very welcome and at home. Everything was delicious - especially our crispy chilli beef dish, which had a nice kick and flavour to it without being overpowering - and we're looking forward to coming back.

This place was recommended to us and we loved it. The owner was chatty and friendly, especially after we said we weren't local but liked Vietnamese food. The dishes on the menu looked great and our starter was wonderful as was our crispy duck. A great Vietnamese in Tewkesbury and highly recommended.

Team of 10 in this restaurant 7th Oct 14. This is a horrible food experience - nobody in the group enjoyed the food. Firstly - it calls itself Vietnamese but we weren't fed anything but poor western Chinese cuisine. The decor is dated. The food hygiene rating is 4 out of 5. We had food that felt like it had...

We've been going to the New World ever since it first opened which must be about 20 years ago although it could be more. We probably go about every six months and we went this evening and the food was absolutely delicious. Kim always take the time to ask how we are and chat if she has the time. If... More

My view is that Vietnamese food is wonderful. This restaurant provides it although it is more Chinese than Vietnamese. The quality is first class and there are some very interesting tastes. Highly recommended.

Just enjoyed a meal at New World. It's run by a friendly Vietnamese couple. Food really tasty and good value for money. We had a shared starter, 2 mains (steak and prawns) with rice, bottle nice wine, tea coffee and a brandy for under £60. We would both highly recommend.

I had not had Vietnamese food before so this was a first. In reality, the dishes on offer are pretty similar to Chinese cuisine, so there is something that everyone should be familiar with. Overall I had good service and the food was well cooked, tasty and well presented. I will be going back.

I came across this little gem whilst on a short stay in Tewkesbury with my wife and son (15). All 3 of us enjoyed our meals which were a mixture of beef and pork dishes. My Vietnamese chilli beef dish was fantastic. The service is friendly, attentive but not obstrusive. It was nice to chat with the owner for a... More
