    I was really craving Vietnamese meatballs and the meatball pho more than satisfied. Amazing depth of flavour in the broth, utterly decadent with a generous helping of shrimp chilli oil.

    For the love of food, try classic Pho add an egg york, put the egg york into your bowl of Pho and beat it into the broth. This place offer the best/most authenti Pho in London I've ever tasted so far.

    Pho is good obvlsy but you MUST try the other mains too - and be more adventurous about the appetisers than just getting a usual roll! Bring some time to wait for getting seated during dinner service.

    Tried the Saigon Pho with extra tendon, just blew my mind! And the Vietnamese ice coffee is just the right intensity and sweetness too!

    No east London food guide is complete without Vietnamese and for vegetarians Cây Tre is up there. Mushroom pho is a good alternative to the meat fave and their unique veg spring rolls are delicious.

    My favourite of the Vietnamese restaurants down this end of town. The owner is a genial nutter who brings the place alive and plied me with “mock dog” and chicken gizzards with muop. Read more

    A very nice touch of Vietnamese food with authentic cuisine. "Phở" (Beef noodle soup) and "Bún thịt nướng" (BBQ Pork Loin with Rice Vermicelli) are winners! Really good value for money, excellent food

    The classic pho is awesome. The brisket is perfect and the atmosphere is cosy. They are a bit slow when it comes to serving (only in the evenings from what i noticed)

    Roast pork vermicelli was amazing. Really tender and well seasoned pork. As close to home cooked as you can get, according to someone that knows what that tastes like.

    Nice food with good atmosphere. The portion of pork belly is huge and so tasty. Will def go back to try more other main dish. Not so impressed with the beef pho.
  • Eva S.
    Definitely a spot to try but only if you don't mind waiting ! It's usually packed ! The staff is super nice ! They got us free starters because we had to wait so long ❤️

    My mushroom pho was great, although I had the sinking feeling that it was made with chicken broth. Strict veggies/vegans beware!

    Absolutely loved this place! Summer rolls with shrimp and papaya, and Bun Sa with chicken were simply amazing! And the plum wine is very yummy too

    Very authentic Vietnamese (I'm told by Vietnamese colleagues) try the table griddle beef, chilli salt and pepper softshell crab, Vietnamese curries, not sure if anything here isn't good!

    Good food. Try the smoked duck & blossom salad and bun cha. Definitely skip the pho sate, not a pleasant dish at all!!

    Busy and noisy at lunch... fantastic Pho, friendly service, the kind of place to go with friends just so you can taste more of the menu!

    Best pho I've ever had. They also are very generous with the quantity of beef. I had the classic pho, plus meatballs. Awesome.

    Really great Vietnamese food, a bit more expensive than the places on Kingsland Road but the menu is exciting and full of excellent tasty things.

    Excellent Pho and noodle bowls. Summer (rice paper) rolls have more lettuce/mint filling than noodles so tasty and healthy.

    Absolutely phenomenal Vietnamese food, authentic as in Hanoi. Classic pho, chilli pork belly and the aubergine are all top choices.

    Healthy portions of well cooked food. They have menus including a starter and a soup with the main. Try any of the Pho.

    Delicious summer rolls and the bun sa tofu bowl is so good. Lots of vegetarian options, but not in the lunch deal.

    I think this is one if the best Vietnamese of the area. You must eat the tapioca and coconut ice cream desert!!

    Summer rolls and chicken pho - delicious. They also have a few must-try non-alc cocktails on the menu

    Nice little Vietnamese place on two levels - bring a friend or five - and share some of their tasty classics.

    Been to this place many times over the past 7-8 years and the food is still awesome... still a little cramped inside..!!

    Yummy aubergine and tofu rice dish. Impressed that they found a dish for the vegetarian who doesn't like spicy food

    Very good rice vermicelli and I'm general a very nice place. It can get very busy and noisy though.

    Really busy, so book ahead. The Okra and Aubergine curry is super spicy but amazingly good.

    Top, high quality Vietnamese. Replaced Tay Do as my favourite due to their audacious price hike.

    You won't get full with the vegetarian version mushroom pho, and I believe they use msg, my mouth feels funny after eating it :( not up to the hype.

    £10 lunch set menu is good but you can't get a vegetarian pho as part of it :(
