If you're interested in sophisticated or themed decor walk on by. However if you taste buds are in need of a something new then give Mien Tay a try.I inderstand it is part of a 'mini-chain' with two other venues in London. Located in a Tudor building on Sheep Street it is easy to miss - and, from appearances alone, had I not heard good things about the menu I may have given this one a miss. We visited on a Sunday lunchtime.
The menu is original and imaginative, matched by an excellent wine menu. A good Italian red was approx £13. With advice from the waiter we had chargrilled quails and beef wrapped in wild Betel leaves for starters. For mains stir fried goat with and sea food curry - this was acompanied by Morning Glory (a kind of water spinach) and fried rice.
Everything was delicious, fresh and full of flavours that stimulated a tired pallette. We finished with a deliciously sweet Vietnamese coffee (made with condensed milk). Service was friendly, knowledgable and discrete. Would recommend. Only draw back is payment by cash only (there is a cash point three doors up from the restaurant). Can't wait to sample other dishes like eel and frog on the menu plus, clay curry pots.
