“Speedy but Good”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

This is a good Viet options when you are in a hurry and want something good. The service is standard, feel's very much like a numbers game to get you in and out. The meals are delivered quickly (which is great especially when in a hurry), personally I always enjoy the food particularly the Pork Spring Rolls. Great menu options and good value.

“The rudest obnoxious staff ever encountered”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

The waiter was telling us what to order. He was extremely rude and dismissive. The food when it turned up was literally thrown on the table.some dishes were wrong.they were swooped up without apology. The food was rubbish.not true vietnamese. Never step foot in that place again.

“Worst version of Vietnamese food that I have ever encountered”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Visited this restaurant on Sunday eve having heard that it was considered a good Vietnamese restaurant. Ordered 3 dishes between the 2 of us, chilli lemongrass scallops, fish with ginger, and vegetables with XO sauce. Dishes were bland and bore no relation to their Vietnamese names sakes. Having lived in Vietnam for several years, the cuisine prides itself on fresh ingredients - not garlic and ginger out of a bottle - and contrast of flavours. These 3 dishes not only tasted the same they were horrid. At best the scallops were fresh but tasteless. Service was at best hostile - it felt like we were a nuisance taking up space...Horrid experience for a cuisine that is usually a delight..

“Disappointed”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Having been to Tho Thos on numerous occasions I was very disappointed to see how expensive the food had become, the quality of the food was not of a good standard, service and food delivery was very slow and generally it was decided that we probably won't come back.

“Oasis in Victoria St...”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Stop off point before or after viet lunch in Vic St. Great bar, good staff, and very good wines, which is a real oasis in this area.. Prices very reasonable for feel and vibe. Haven't tried the food but it does look very appetising, though small menu. Always clean, great music and chill on sunday afternoons.
Only Negative; no Carlton on tap, the Kirin is good though...and generally don't pour a good pot.
