Lovely food and not too badly priced. Beer in a bottle was nice too. My only slight negative is the fact that not one member of staff was Vietnamese. Not even the chef who popped up to get a drink. So maybe it's not that...More

This place is incredible priced, food is so tasty and overall nice atmosphere. Suitable for all occasions. Friendly staff. Would return again as the food, specially the vegetarian spring rolls are to die for.

You are welcomed warmly into this small, friendly restaurant. The service is good and there is a clear menu giving plenty of choice. There is a short wine list and they serve at least four Asian beers. The food was fresh and very tasty -...More

Loved dinner here last night. We had noodle soup and we were delighted with the heat of the chilli (my wife is half Indonesian) and the bunch of herbs given on the side to sunk in. Delicious. Mariko the Finnish waitress couldn't have been more...More

We were sadly disappointed because the food was just average. We found the flavours were either bland or they just didn't match. Of course, we don't eat asian food often so we may just not be accustomed to certain flavours. Going into Chinatown was cool...More

I really enjoy the good, some plates are really delicious but i am quite disaopoiment with the staff . I am not sure if they are a group of inexperienced workers or just unfriendly people.

Watched it with my own eyes when I was waiting for my own take-out. I may just be a coincidence that the morning after eating Pho I was seriously ill. Other than the above, I find their noodles great, less so their chicken wings, but...More

Great food, very friendly and efficient service and overall good value. The only thing to remember is that this area is ultra busy in the week with office workers and so you'll find it hard to rock up and get a table between 12.30 and...More

Had a meal here at about 3 o'clock on a Friday after the lunchtime rush. I had meatballs followed by the prawn, beef and tofu pho in a really tasty beef stock. My friend had the prawn spring roll followed by the "xao" stir fry....More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky

We specialise in the Vietnamese national dish, pho, an amazingly tasty and nutritious noodle soup, as well as other wonderful Vietnamese foods, coffees (served Vietnamese style including the renowned weasel coffee! ), beers and fresh juices. A small, cosy cafe, it seats around 35 and offers take-away. The kitchen here is tiny so the menu is slightly shorter than at our subsequent branches.
