The service and quality are very bad here. Unfriendly staff. They also close very early. Not recommendable

I'm ethnically Vietnamese and grew up having a lot of good - and not so good - banh mi. The best ones are always home-cooked with extra pork belly dripping sauce but for those who don't have the option, Keu's banh mi is a decent alternative. Half the success is down to the bread and this one is soft and... More

I've just ordered two meals crispy pork belly and beef brisket with rice. The food I received was just appalling. For £20 in the beef rice box I had 2 pieces of beef!! Pork belly tasted rather like a pork jelly. More like something to chew than to eat plus the amount of the pork was surprisingly little! You should... More

I wanted to try the Korean across the road but it didn't feel very solo friendly. I spotted this place and thought it was worth a try. I had the mackerel baguette and honestly it's one of the best I've ever had. This is how you make a baguette! The place is really relaxed and the staff are also lovely.

Paying 9.50£ for a prawn noodle soup with only one prawn in it is really too expensive I think. The margin on this soup must be 9£.... They should or reduce their price or serve us with more quality

I cannot wait to go to London again. I cannot wait to eat their Crispy Pork Banh Mi! I tasted the crispy pork, roasted duck and "original" banh mi's, as well as the green papaya salad. My favourite hands down was the crispy pork. They put chilis in them though, so be sure to ask them to leave out the... More

This is one of my favorite carry-out lunch places in Shoreditch. Mackerel Bahn Mi with a ca fe sua da (Vietnamese iced coffee with sweetened condensed milk) is devine. There's usually a queue for carry-out at lunch, limited seating.

Had crispy pork which was not crispy at all. Also had a salad and found black hair in it which was not pleasant. There were no customers apart from me, but it took staff 10 minutes to put salad in the box. Very disappointing.

Neighbourhood Profile
Shoreditch
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 Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
