“Great food, iffy service”
Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

Love this place, come all the time. The pho with fresh beef (i.e. not the cooked beef) is really good, and there's plenty of options on the table to add flavour to suit your taste. I often find myself bunging some of everything in, and it's always very good. Starters are good too, especially the beef jerky salad. Also rice dishes if you're not in a noodle soup mood. Had one or two bad experiences service-wise but overall it's decent enough. Recommended.

“Short visit but great lunch”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Had a fabulous introduction to the menu. Very helpful staff - food was delicious. A bit of a surprise when you enter the restaurant down the stairs.
Advice given on choices to make and how to use various sauces to taste!
Thank you

“Decent Pho”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Having just come back from Vietnam, I was very keen to taste more Vietnamese cuisine in the UK. The restaurant is decent enough, clean and the service friendly and quick. I ordered the pho ga (chicken noodle soup) and it was very big with all the condiments. The soup stock was delicious just what I was looking for but I have to agree with the other reviews and say that there was allot of noodles and not much meat. The chicken in it was very small and of poor quality in grisly bits. Shame as if they were to use good bits of quality meat, this restaurant would rate far higher. Worth a try though.
