We visited Mien Tay for a Saturday lunch and found ourselves the only ones in the restaurant, which meant we had priority service and the wait was not long at all. We ordered the lobster and asparagus soup and the rice with pork chop and fried egg. The soup was delicious and perfect on a cold day. Although they didn't... More

I've eaten in and had takeaway plenty of times and food is always good quality. Service can sometimes be a bit hit and miss but for the price you pay and the quality of the food I'll continue to go back frequently. It's a cheap and cheerful fast food place. If you're expecting fine dining don't come here but come... More

I've visited here before, called in again as its still a favourite with friends. As before, the food here is still gorgeous. The place is popular although we were fine turning up on spec for a table for 6 about 8.30. Service is still great, friendly and fast. It is an extensive menu. Can still warmly recommend a visit.

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
