    Try the small Banh Cuon (5,50£) as a starter - good taste, fun experience and enough for two

    Great service and a nice restaurant with decent food, but nowhere to sit while waiting, even if you reserved a table and arrived a bit earlier.

    Great place for tasty, fresh and well prepared Vietnamese (some creative license taken in authenticity). From the pho to the papaya or mango salad, and the rolls, all good.

    They have a great music playlist but you won't be able to appreciate it cause the place is extremely noisy most of the time. The food is good though, especially the pho.

    Order the classic pho. Whilst it is no Pho Pasteur (Saigon) the depth of flavour is much better than the Pho Cafe chain. Does not come with the requisite bowl of herbs and sprouts though.

    The reviews here about service are true, it's bad. We were waiting half hour for a booked table, there were mistakes on the meal, brought mains while still eating starters etc. Shame as food's nice!
