We ate here after walking past one night and it is terrific.
Sitting at the bar as a couple is a great way to dine, watching the team of chefs do their stuff with fresh and colourful ingredients and plenty of style.
Peter, the owner and executive chef, is very friendly and struck up a conversation with us - he kindly gave us his insights into why Vietnamese food is some of Asia's best and so different from other cuisines in the region.
The freshness of his ingredients and the beautiful balance of flavours was shown clearly by the Shaking Beef (our favourite), Spicy Tuna Roll, Pepper Squid (lightly fried with lovely sauce) and house cured salmon. The atmosphere is very lively due partly to the great location (slightly elevated over a Soho intersection) and the appealing design of the bar (open air at the front). The staff were super efficient and friendly.
We have eaten at lot of Vietnamese food in different countries (incl Vietnam itself) and Chom Chom is up there with the best for us.
It is also very well priced for the quality of food and good atmosphere as well (c.600 for four dishes before drinks).
A great restaurant!
