I called to place order, the waiter did not understand English or Vietnamese . He only understood Chinese then he imitated what I said while he transfered the phone to someone else. They do not have any special food, order somewhere else to have better service!!!!

We have been going to this restaurant for over 15 years and in all that time we have not had a bad meal. Best known for Ho fun, on this occasion we had the papaya and mango salads to start followed by chicken and pork dishes. The salads were spicy and light and the mains had a nice clean taste....

I can't explain how fragrant and beautiful the food was! Amazing for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters! This has got to be one of the best meals I've ever had.

I have been here a few times, each time one lady in particular (I think she may be the owner) has been quite rude. However, we have always gone back because the food has always been really tasty. And it's such a shame because we will never be returning after our visit on Saturday evening. I ordered a diet coke... More

Happened in here one Friday night in January with a couple of friends. We will not be making a return visit. Food was generally very bad. I have never seen ribs with so little meat on them and so dry everything else was unremarkable. Service was pretty unfriendly. At the end of of the evening in order to ensure we... More

A good local Vietnamese which is my standard place to go after a movie at the Picturehouse just down the road. However, the service is somewhat brusque - there's one waitress in particular who seems rather angry that you would dare to order food! Cheap, tasty and well located though.

Hai Ha is a wonderful addition to London's BYOB landscape. It comfortably ranks alongside Jaflong as one of the Capital's premier culinary experiences, whereby the diners can bring their own booze. Indeed, Hai Ha can stand on it's two feet when compared to any of the cities Asian restaurants*. The quality of cooking stands alone. I am indebted to Sandy... More

The food on offer here is tasty and very varied. However, when looking through the menu I did feel a little overwhelmed; too much to choose from, smallish print, and a slightly confusing layout. As a large group we all decided to plump for the set menu (£20 for two courses) each and dip into all the dishes. The chicken... More
