Hadn't been for a while so took a friend there for early dinner today. There's a good selection for vegetarians and they even asked if we'd like ours without fish sauce. It is now licenced too. Thus place has had do many write ups and...More

If you are a foodie you will be disappointed. Food below average. Tasted like w microwave meal from the Saintsbury next door.

Disastrous takeaway with tough, chewy meats, rubbery prawns and greasy MSG style sauces. The pork ribs were as though a kettle of vultures had pecked any morsels of tender meat away only to then have the bones dried out by the chef - even the...More

Great food and price! Service was so so but the rest was great. It also makes you feel that you are back in Vietnam (if you go to the original restaurant, not the new one).

Ordered food delivery at 12:30 (which is an available option). Restaurant cancelled it because they are only open at 12:00. Excuse me? Then why would you have the option of 12:30 in the first place? Horrible service.

Canteen style, a little noisy - not a cosy restaurant - but generally good food. We expected more from the Tofu curry in a clay pot, good but unexciting. Crispy duck predictable but good. Some staff friendly, others cold.

My dad and I came here for dinner on a Tuesday night, expecting good things. Boy we were wrong! The deep fried sea bass was disgusting. God knows how long ago the fish had been deep fried - it was rock hard, completely plain (the...More

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood.
There's a lingering post-industrial grit about
