Building on our experience at Viet Eat Holborn, Viet Eat Pho & Bun was created in October 2015, with a new concept that aims at revolutionising the offering of Vietnamese street food in London. Pho & Bun is located on the popular Shaftesbury Avenue, adjacent to both London China Town and Soho, and minutes away from many West End theatres, including Queen’s theatre – home to the famous Les Misérables. Pho & Bun carries a new, out-of-the-box design that creates a cosy and comfortable dining environment with distinctively Vietnamese features. Besides the usual customer favourites found at Viet Eat Holborn, Pho & Bun emphasises the offering of our traditional Pho Noodle Soup and, for the first time

I mean the food is okay. However the service is horrendous. People should learn some manner at least.

Nice food, finely flavoured and very different to other Asian dishes. I really like the offerings here. The reason I am awarding 3/5? Service is okay, but just that. No-one asked if we were enjoying the meals and, at the end, we weren’t offered a...dessert or coffee (which we would have had but we waited quite a while and moved past it!) Annoyingly, an optional 12.5% service charge is added to the bill. I paid cash and it was assumed that I wanted to pay this. In all honesty, I might have given 10% - the going, accepted tip amount - but not 12.5%. I think it takes it for granted and shouldn’t - particularly as tips should warrant good service and I think this was so-so.More

Summer rolls were the freshest and tastiest I've had. Pho bowls were really very good and the accompaniments fresh. All food was very good and service good.

I went here during eotho which made the prices more justifiable. I’d be slightly miffed I had paid normal prices for this. The food was solid standard and the turnaround really quick which was appreciated as we needed to get to a movie. I would...recommend for a fan of Vietnamese who needs a quick dish before their movie/theatreMore

When we arrived at the restaurant at lunch time, we were the first customer. The male staff completely ignored us and just stood behind the counter. We said hello, but he just glared at us as if we shouldn't be there. We told him we...had a booking at 12:00, and he said, "Booking?" We repeated that we had a reservation, and he checked the book and grudgingly told us to sit . At that point we felt like leaving but was too curious about the food. He then dumped a menu on the table without saying anything. We had no idea why the person like him was working in a restaurant dealing with customers. He doesn't even deserve a 1-star. Luckily someone else was on duty and served us from then on, and the situation improved. We had Crispy Spring Roll, Plum Sauce Grazed BBQ Spare Ribs, Honey Glazed BBQ Pork with Rice and Tender Beef Pho. All except Pho were full of flavour and very tasty. Pho - the noodle was overcooked and the stock was just OK. Honey Glazed BBQ Pork was slightly fatty but was perfectly char-grilled, smoky and very moreish. We are happy to go back to eat their wonderful food but hope the rude server would not be there.More

Booked a table for a Sunday evening using a Virgin Experience voucher. The offer was for a four course meal with wine. We got exactly what we were promised and it was actually so much better than we expected from start to finish! The upstairs...part of the restaurant is small and cosy but plenty of room at each table for two or four. The two staff who served us were very friendly and attentive and paced our courses really nicely. Everything we were served was tasty, fresh and beautifully presented. My husband said his bowl of pho was the best he’s ever tasted outside of Vietnam and we’ve certainly tried a few over the last few years. My personal favourite was the dessert! Coconut snow (like an ice-cream) with Vietnamese coffee poured over. Absolutely delicious! We were told that if we order a glass of the same wine each then we would get the rest of the bottle included too. We chose a very nice red merlot which was great value to be included in the voucher. Ignore any of the bad reviews you read on here, I am the fussiest person ever when it comes to eating out and I could not fault this place at all! I’ve already recommended it to my foodie friends!More

Echoing earlier comments - awful service, very rude waiter with a nasty attitude. He was very occupied in his own little world and belittled multiple customers. But good food.
