    Made a booking for kings birthday online yet made the trip to the venue and it was closed? Why allow people to make a booking if you’re going to be closed. Google also said they would be open? Very disappointing

    We had a wonderful experience dining at Hawker Boys. We found the staff friendly and attentive, and thorough in making sure dietary needs were met (Coeliac and vegan diners). The food was incredible. I had the best Vegan Pho I've ever tasted and we all left looking forward to returning. Thanks guys!

    Food is quite tasty. Short wait time. Hardware Lane ambiance. Big plus is the fact that they take bookings and not restricted to have set menu, especially for big groups 7+. Thank you!

    The food was sensational with a good number of options for vegetarians/vegan! Loved their Crispy tofu bao and the family loved the prawn wontons in chilli oil and beef vermicelli bowl! Overall the food, the vibe and the ambience was great! Highly recommend the joint for amazing Vietnamese grub!! Con: the soy sauce dressing for the tofu vermicelli bowl was a tad bit salty! Would be great if they can have a lighter vegan alternative which is sweet and sour!

    Good service and setting, food wasn’t the best but nothing bad just seemed a little unimpressive apart from the chicken ribs which were outstanding.

    Friendly staff, cute place, decent food, but definitely not the best Pho in town. Soup tasted a bit bland, spring rolls were a bit dry.
