Nice service, food reasonably good, although starter of the dumplings didn’t seem freshly cooked. Would go again.

This was first experience of Vietnamese food for my family and we very much enjoyed it.
We are mix of vegetarian and non-vegetarians and there was sufficient choice for all of us. The food was very well prepared and tasty and we will definitely be going back for another visit.

The food was certainly ok but not the ‘OMG that was wonderful’ level. It was almost what you’d expect from a takeaway, good but nothing special.
The staff were friendly and, apart from a screaming kid a few tables away (I despair) the place was very relaxed.

Loved the food here - everything we ordered as absolutely delicious. We ordered various plates and put them all in the middle and enjoyed all of it.
The staff was super friendly as well.

Super little restaurant with excellent service and staff.
The menu was amazing.
Tried the traditional 16 hour broth pho soup and was not disappointed.
Other dishes - sea bream and beef salad yummy as well as all the sides!

Booked originally intending to visit as a group of 4 but wasn't possibly due to changes in local lockdown rules. They were really helpful in changing the reservation to only 2 people.
Really friendly on arrival and great, attentive service. I had Pho Ga, which I've missed so much and really enjoyed. My brother had the challans duck breast, and loved the curry sauce. We also shared the seared chicken dumplings; really well balanced in texture and flavour, with a great dipping sauce.
We both intent to visit again; bringing along our friends and family when we can. :)

If I could give it 10 stars I would. The service was excellent with just a little humour and the food amazing. I’ve been before but this was the best yet and apparently we did t even have their signature dish so will have to go back!

The restaurant has changed its menu from before lock down and now offers a reduced choice of main courses and a long list of small tapas style dishes. The previous menu was much better. No mint leaves were provided with the spring rolls and only two tiny lettuce leaves. The wagyu beef was most disappointing: the meat was chewy, definitely not tender as it should be. The beef bun (cold noodle salad) was alright but less fragrant than it used to be - little coriander, no fresh mint, very little chili: it tasted a bit bland. I used to love this place...please make it great again!

Food was flavoursome. Bun bowl rather bare, for what it was but prawns were large, juicy and executed beautifully, not overcooked like at many other places. Seabass starter was delicious, boneless and perfectly cooked, too. Really delicious Vietnamese coffee. Attentive service.

Food was delicious. Light, flavourful and with a touch of creativity and flair. Good attentive service. Nice decor upstairs. A bit noisy. Had a table of four braying people next to me and it was hard to hear my friend while the party next door was howling.

Best Vietnamese food we've had in the UK. Had a delicious lunch before going to a show. Glad we booked it was very busy! Obviously a very popular place, and well deserved.
