Just wanted to recommend that place at least for the soups. Great taste, just the right amount of everything and an orange as the end of your meal.

My boyfriend and I came here for our anniversary in June and enjoyed the food so much that ended up bringing friends here. By October we had been here for 6-7 times yet every time we came the service got worse and worse. As we often came with group of 5-7 of us we requested the big round table at... More

I had a large family dinner here and was on a limited time schedule. The staff was quick and the food came out quickly. The appetisers were very good but the main courses just average. This is on a strip of many other Vietnamese restaurants, so I wouldn't necessarily come a second time.

I've been many times and the food is always amazing! Super tasty and you get a massive portion. I didn't give 5 stars because the staff can be a bit standoffish.

we ate here on a Tuesday night. Initially we went to the smaller restaurant a few doors down but it was full so the waiter took us along to the bigger one. Its much nicer décor actually. The food was great - we shared satay, quail, ribs and spring rolls to start then we all opted for different versions of... More

Is a Wednesday I ate at the place and it was crowded! So that's a good sign. The frog leg is a must - super delicious. I would also recommend the lotus salad. The goat dish is recommended too. Despite been busy, the service was not too bad considering the crowd! I would have given 4 stars if they hadn't... More

Mien Tay has the best Vietnamese food you can find around. Vermicelli noodles (any really), summer rolls and the best crispy duck you have ever tried are some highly recommended dishes. Haven't been to Vietnam to know how authentic the place is but it looks quite authentic, it has been recommended by Vietnamese people and it is very popular amongst... More

We went to the one situated on 106-108 Kingsland Street; there doesn't seem to be a separate page for this branch. But then menu is exactly the same as the one at 120. Five of us went there for dinner and we were glad we booked. It was already heaving by 6:30. We ordered a variety of dishes and we... More

I ordered quail and chargrilled pork balls, followed by crispy whole fried sea bass with lemon grass and chilli. The place was packed and we were lucky to get a table immediately. Service was good, quick to order and quite quick with the first dishes.. the park balls were served with lots of special herbs and lettuce, to wrap the... More

I have been to many vietnamese restaurants around the world, this tastes nothing like anything I have had. I ordered a pho with rare beef/beef brisket, the meat was extremely tough and hard to chew, the noodles all stuck together at the bottom of the bowel, and the soup base didn't taste anything like a typical pho base that I've...
