“One of our favourites”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

We really appreciate having this decent vietnamese restaurant as a local. The food is always delicious and freshly prepared. Service is prompt and polite. We haven't yet had any of the tempting desserts as we over order starters and mains. We are particularly fond of the vietnamese spring rolls and pho soup.

“Friendly Vietnamese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

La Du Du is a cafe/restaurant and with a relaxed atmosphere and good food. Good place to go with a crowd and share the soup noodles. Betal beef rools/soft shelled crab/squid starters very good. Main courses of sauteed beef and caramalised salmon hotpot were very tasty. Plenty for vegetarians as most dishes give you a choice of beef/pork/chicken/tofu.
The food is authentic and they serve traditional Vietnamese coffee and exotic cocktails. Try the cocktail with espresso coffee.
The service was very friendly and efficient. We went Friday evening and needed to book. Ask for seating away from the door as it can be a bit draughty.

“Disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

We visitied this restaurant last year and were pleased with their food. However, when we tried them again last week, the standard was nothing like what it used to be. The chiii garlic squid was tough like rubber and the meat in our 'Pho' contained pieces that resembled offal rather than beef. Other dishes such as the 'Combo' was poor value for money. Definitely will not be returning.

“Lucky find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

With a group of friends we stumbled accross this place by chance looking for a quick lunch. Fabulous range of food with an extensive vegetarian choice. Friendly and helpful service, great price and extremely tasty food in good sized portions.

“Fantastic Vietnamese Food in a relaxed setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

After many year's of not trying Vietnamese, was very pleasantly surprised to come across La Du Du by West Hampstead Overground Stn. We tried the lunchtime special, a big bowl of their vegetarian noodles, with tofu...YUMMY!!

We were not rushed at all, and felt very relaxed. The food does not come out quick, but that is good, as it shows the food is being freshly prepared..and it tasted like it also! Lots of lovely fresh, just-cooked-right, ingredients I have never taken to cooked celery...until a visit here...it made a lovely addition to the meal. This dish contains quail eggs, so if vegan, ask accordingly.

It had a wonderful relaxed atmosphere and by the height of lunchtime, the place was really filling up. The other dishes that were coming out of the kitchen for the other diners looked equally as fresh and impressive.

So, if you are in West Hampstead and hungry for something tasty, without being rushed, then I would definitely recommend this place. One of the best meals I have had in a very long time!
