Food is not great, really disappointing. Realised later this is a one stop visit for most before heading to Battersea Arts Centre. Staff are lovely but managed to mess up four different orders. Cash only payment. Won't be visiting again. Food was very poor.

I've been here a couple of times now and it's a strange place. Looks like a dive from the outside and inside it doesn't get much better. Bookings seem to be largely irrelevant, at busy times you will have to wait for your table anyway. The manager will shout at you for no apparent reason and the waiting staff will... More

There was 4 of us in the party and it was our first time. The place doesn't look much from the outside and not really much on the inside but you know it is popular as there are always people in there.... and quite rightly so as the food is great. Such tastey food with great flavours. Portion sizes. My... More

It's not real fine dinning, but can't complain coz they don't put service charge in your bill. Anyway the taste is nice.

Having read the reviews we came here excited to see the all the rude staff. Unfortunately we were disappointed - the service was fine, the staff were helpful and we weren't rushed at all. The food was nice too, if a bit pricey. Would recommend the fresh rolls with tofu.

I've been here several times now and I guess the only reason I come back is because the food is good, especially the sea bream and sea bass, but I just can't see myself coming back again because the customer service is just so far below par. After arriving and being shuffled about by a manager who quite clearly only... More

The food is absolutely delicious - I had spring rolls and monkfish in curry sauce, both were beyond delicious at a reasonable cost. The only two downsides are the staff that should be more attentive and customer focused and the place is quite noisy. Perfect for dinner with friends, I will definitely return many times.

Food looks good but nothing to rave about. Service is basic if not a bit rude, décor is uninspiring. Tried because of some good reviews but there is much better.

A regular haunt and somewhere I would have recommended to friends as a delicious but reasonably priced place to eat. What a shame, I'll never be going back. The food was still good (apart from a hair in our prawn crackers!) but the service is unbelievably rude - I actually can't believe they feel they can talk to customers in... More

I am one of the Vietnamese food lover, so i am very concern with any Vietnamese food restaurant in London. I tried lots of restaurant and Mien Tay is the worst experience. Food here doesn't exude the Vietnamese taste/ flavor. Everything I tried here is bland, and absolutely not tasty. Beverage, just soft drinks. Service is normal and rushed. Spring... More
