This vietnamese is excellent! We had quick service, the food came out fast and it was so tasty! The portion sizes for mains are HUGE - we shared plates as it meant we could try everything (I'd recommend!)

Already by 7 pm on a Friday practically all the tables were taken thankfully we had booked. Really friendly staff, extensive menu. There was seven of us and we all chose something different with resounding success. The mixed vegetarian shared starter was delicious. The seafood soup with noodles was very tasty Will visit again

The food here is delicious, all thumbs up on everything we ordered. A big selection on the menu. Service was surprisingly pretty good. The let down was the curb appeal (handwritten sign on window potentially accepting cash only) and inside atmosphere was cramped (having to possibly share tables). Understandably, it being a popular and busy place, and wanting to squeeze... More

very good food overall but it is a little bit overpriced for the amount that you get. The service was average but you have to share a table with other people. It is a very cluttered and crowded atmosphere which isn't for me but the food definitely makes up for it. Would revisit again!

My first eating vietnamese food, so I played it safe with my choices - the lunch menu was massive (apparently the evening one even more so) and a bit overwhelming! I went for summer and spring roll to start, pork belly and noodles for main. I shouldn't have worried. The tofu summer roll was light and fresh, full of crunchy... More

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Clerkenwell
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 models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
