“thanks to Time Out card I found this great restaurant”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

am so happy to ahve found this great Vietnamese and not in central London. I think it was the tastiest Vietnamese I have ever had in London. The flavours were amazing and I will be going back for sure. It gets quite busy so if going on a Friday/Saturday probably best to reserve. For the quality of the food I think it's very good value especially for Fulham Road. The only negative would be the service was a bit slow and also they forgot to bring us our drinks so we had to remind them - if they improve service I would rate it excellent.

“Finally found great Vietnamese restaurant”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

I was looking for good Vietnamese restaurant that was on convenient location for a while and finally found it. I really like their fresh spring rolls and vermicelli bowls, still haven't managed to try anything else as i can't resist them every time i visit. Good service (sometimes a bit slow), but overall excellent food reasonably priced.

“Easy and delicious, small gem of a restaurant”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

A fantastic little Vietnamese restaurant on the Fulham Road, Orchid served up a gorgeous chicken pho and a number of equally good sides. It is quiet and unassuming - the food makes this place great. We will definitely be back.

“Want a good pho?”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Great little local Vietnamese place. Highly recommend their soups - I just hope this place lasts unlike many on Fulham road.

“Lovely Vietnamese food, a real gem!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

I recently discovered this little hidden gem thanks to a friend of Vietnamese descent that swore that this was the real deal. and boy it sure was! The service is really friendly and helpful. Our waiter gave us all sorts of tips, suggestions and explanations on the menu. The food was well presented and impeccably cooked. We ordered a fairly large selection of starters to share and then a main and several drinks and I the bill came to little more than £30 each, which is great value considering the quality of the the food. Among the starters I highly recommend the "Nam Bo Pancakes" and the "Cha’ lá lôt". The Vietnamese chicken curry was outstanding. Highly recommended.
