“Best place for fusion asian if you want fresh tasty and be in and out in an hour.”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

I hesitate to review and expose one of my favorites. The more people who discover this place, the more likely I'll have to wait for a table!
Once you try it for yourself you'll be hooked. Good thing they offer take away.
Having been dining here averaging weekly since they opened, the quality and quantity of the food is perfect. Only once was the tofu dessert not smooth.
Wishing these lot keep up with what they've achieved so far, so I can have many more meals there to come!

“Bright, fun, great food”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

One of the joys of Trip Advisor is that the most highly-rated restaurants are often very affordable, and not just those serving expensive haute cuisine; Minmin is definitely one of these. The interior is brightly coloured, with simple plastic tables, but stylishly designed - definitely not just a fast-food establishment or simple take-away. The bi-lingual menu and diversity of customers suggests this is 'genuine' Vietnamese food, and not just something for the tourists.

We started with the vietnamese steamed cheung fun and rice spring rolls which were absolutely delicious. I chose the crispy beef for main, which was very tasty and generously portioned. The service was always friendly and helpful, while chop sticks and western cutlery were both provided.

A real treat and something a bit different; a completely different culinary world to the familiar Chinese food often found in UK take-aways. Highly recommended.

Had a really enjoyable meal here, a quite casual and informal place with great food, large portions full of flavour! The teas are great too, thumbs up!

“Really good noodle soup!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Ate at minmin last night with two mates who both enjoy their food!
Two of us had the big bowl noodle soups and both were very happy with our dishes. The beef shin in mine was really tender and the broth had a good level of chilli. My friends dish was full of roasted duck and he struggled to finish which is an idication of the size of portions. Service was also quick and very friendly.
Overall very happy with the food and for around £7 a dish you can't go wrong. Definitely would recommend!
