I took two colleagues from Asia here for lunch. The service was friendly and helpful and the food — even judged by the exacting standards of my Singaporean colleague — was fantastic. Try the eponymous bun cha, it's great!

Really lovely Vietnamese café! Highly recommend the chicken dumpling Pho. Friendly staff but cash only!

Thanks for your review. We put a ton of effort into our Pho and it means a lot to us that you enjoyed it!

A little effort could make this small venue a hit but sadly it fails to satisfy. It's been surviving for a while now fulfilling a gap as one of the rare Asian venues in the area. Why not take advantage of lack of competition? Too...More

Busy for a reason. Pho and summer rolls are exceptional and reasonably priced given the high quality

Never had a disappointing meal here, be it Pho, or Bun Cha. The food is reassuring similar to food I had in Vietname, with a limited menu of pho (soup), bun cha (cold noodle salad) or filled baguette. Just pick the main ingredient, and that's...More

This is my favourite road in London, with so many amazing places to eat, and all cuisines catered for. This was a pleasant little cafe that seems to only be open until early afternoon. But the food was very fresh and authentic, and the dumplings,...More

What a fantastic lunch we had here. Pho with roast pork and veg noodle salad. Both were plentiful and overflowing with flavour. The lychee smoothie was a show stopper. All that for £18. Clean bathrooms and efficient service. A real find.

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
