“Fresh Tasty Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

A group of 6 of us came here on a quiet weekday evening. The place is quite large but it also had a nice relaxed atmosphere.

We all had drinks, starters and a main each and the bill only came to £111. I thought that was very reasonable seeing as half of the table had at least 2/3 beers each.

My starter was Nem hai san, this was so tasty and once the waitress suggested how to eat it with the mint leaf and lettuce wrapped around it was even better. I got massive chunks of tiger prawn too.
My main was Com chai cary which was sprinkled with peanuts. The sauce was really delicate and had great flavor. A nice sized portion.

A massive plus point was the open kitchen, sure out food took about 25/30 min but it was worth it. You wouldn't want to rush this meal. We all had a great time and would go back again.

“Best Pho in Europe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Having read a review in a magazine, I decided to check this place out and it became my favourite right upon the visit. Have eaten there a good few times and they have never let me down.

They consistently provide good service, yummy, amazingly fresh, delicious Vietnamese food. Especially their range of pho soup varieties is outstanding, also the veggie spring rolls are to die for.

Nice, stylish environment, amazing yet affordable food, what's not to like?

“Good as usual...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

This is about my seventh (?) meal here. Lovely food, as ever. New waiter - that was clear, but ok however manager heard reprimanding (just gently) in background....not great but that's being trained, I guess. Had 'special' requests which were dealt with efficiently.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

A absolutely great value lunch of two courses for under ten pounds. Substantial portions, superb flavours and really good value. Friendly service and not much wait for food despite being busy.
Would not hesitate to recommend this for excellent Vietnamese style food.

“Tasty and great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

Very cool setting and great service. Food was delicious too; particularly the soups. It cost about £50 for two people which was three courses and an alcoholic drink each. Would recommend giving it a try
