Unfortunately very average food. Warm beers- something about a broken drink fridge . starters: Fried calamari was ok, rice paper prawn was tasteless. Mains: seabass was over marinated with turmeric and was too over powering and an unappealing yellow tinge to the fish. The chicken...with lemon grass was decent. Service was ok as the restaurant was empty on arrival. Won’t be returning.More

The food was incredibly disappointing. There were 0 traditional flavours of coriander, Thai basil and mint in the dishes. Everything was very bland and even after asking for it to be made more authentically by the Vietnamese chef, the mains were delivered with more disappointment....Will not be returning, did not remind me of the food I have eaten in Vietnam many times before. Do not recommend, there are many more authentic and flavoursome Vietnamese options in the city.More

We needed a quick bite before going to the theatre and picked this restaurant in a rush. Wasn’t expecting much but the food was fantastic and full of flavour. We really liked the pac Choi and the chicken pho. The staff were incredibly friendly and...helpful. When they made a mistake to our order they allowed us to keep the food for free and when we had to move tables we were given a free mango shake which was delicious. Definitely recommend.More

Cute hidden gem in the middle of town close to the theatres and shops. The owner gets everything fresh from the market and you can tell. The chicken is organic, the pho is delish and everything tastes fresh.

Food wonderful and staff lovely. Only downside a glass of wine is meant to be complementary with the inclusive evening menu. This worked well on Saturday evening but last night they charged us for drinks and on asking we’re told that although it is on...the menu they don’t do it any more. Felt conned and won’t go backMore

The food, overall, was very good, but the highlight - what separates this restaurant from the rest - is how quickly the food was served. Finished our starters, sipped our drinks, served our mains. Definitely a place to visit. 50% off too.More

This was a lovely evening spent catching up with my friend. Amazing vegan options! We are both vegan and love viet food and this place did not fail to please! A cute spot in Haymarket, we thoroughly enjoyed our pho with vegan ‘chicken’ and tofu...summer rolls!More

There are definitely vegetarian options on the menu but I can’t speak to cross contamination in the kitchen. I have noticed a number of vegetarians in the restaurant and I would think that your concern would be their concern... More
