Description: Velo is a novel concept that combines Vietnamese street food with state-of-the art touch screen ordering technology. The first of its kind, it offers light, fresh and healthy Vietnamese food in a fresh and crisp interior. The status of each order can be watched as it progresses through the open kitchen and on a pick up display. Located in Tooley Street by MORE London/London Bridge, Velo is fast becoming a destination that brings Vietnamese food with a difference to Central London.

Just picked up some food from Velo whilst staying at the hotel opposite, the staff were so welcoming and kind I thought I'd write a review. Also the food is great and well priced. Don't miss out on this little gem of a place in Tower Bridge...

Stumble across this place when I stayed in Hilton Tower Bridge.
Being Vietnamese, I love Vietnamese food! It was delicious and very authentic taste!
Went for Dinner and then for lunch the next day!!!!
Love the Summer rolls, with the authentic dipping sauce, reminds me of my parents cooking and love the spring rolls too, I always order double portions of both!
Haven't tried the pho yet, so will try this next time and the broth smells delicious with the yummy vietnamese herbs too as garnish!
So wish Velo was open over the weekends!!!
Highly recommend and staff was friendly and prices were great!
Wish we have a Velo close to our home in Kent as would go every chance I got!

Glad you stumbled upon Velo. Delighted to get the stamp of approval and authenticity from a Vietnamese. Thank you. Pleased you the summer and spring rolls made you feel at home. After all, all of them are home made everyday. Come around again, whenever Kent drives you around the bend (or not). And we are thinking about Saturdays...

The food is really good and the entire place feels so welcoming. My son, age 6, who is rather picky about his food polished off an entire bowl of Chicken Pho! That speaks volume.

Ingredients are really fresh and really value-for-money.

Highly recommended!

Photastic. A 6-year who is picky about food but polishes off an entire bowl of Chicken Pho does speak volume. Thank you for sharing your Velo experience with us. It is always refreshing to hear customers commenting on the freshness of our food that does not cost an arm and a leg.

The funky computer ordering screens are starting to look a bit aged but service was remarkably
cheerful for a Friday night. Food was pretty good and generously portioned but the vermicelli
noodles were a bit clumpy. Would go for a quick, healthy takeout on my way home from London
Bridge.

Hi finleo, thanks so much for dropping a note on your Friday night observations at Velo. We have been up and running for almost three years now. Technology moves fast, so the screens may look a little dated since we opened. We are always thinking about how to keep up with the trend. But screens are still doing their job - we see that most people actually prefer ordering on the screens as it is fast and fuss-free. Glad you like our service and food. We are sorry about the lumpy vermicelli - when they come out of the oven, they are portioned and then stretched on the serving plate or container. On your occasion, we might have not stretched the noodles enough for your dish. Apologies for this oversight. But we are happy that you like using us for a quick take-out on your way home.

We travelled in Vietnam earlier in the year, and loved the food. The food here was a reminder of why we loved the food there so much. The restaurant is very basic, but the screen ordering works well; we needed to eat quickly to get to the theatre, and it was perfect. The summer rolls were just as we remembered and I loved my vermicelli dish. We will certainly eat there again if we get a chance.
