Thanh's Bistro, humbly, offers you authentic Vietnamese cuisine in the South East of England. We use fresh ingredients by buying locally, and even grow some of our vegetables in the summer season. Each dish is created with fresh ingredients and lively flavours, because we believe that food is a daily celebration of life.
