    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)

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

    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.

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

    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 ❤️

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

    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!

    Насчёт аутентичности не скажу - во Вьетнаме не был. Но объективно вкусно, берите закуски и шарьте их с друзьями. А ещё владелец смешной - гламурный вьетнамец ))
