Building on our experience at Viet Eat Holborn, Viet Eat Pho & Bun was created in October 2015, with a new concept that aims at revolutionising the offering of Vietnamese street food in London.
Pho & Bun is located on the popular Shaftesbury Avenue, adjacent to both London China Town and Soho, and minutes away from many West End theatres, including Queen’s theatre – home to the famous Les Misérables. Pho & Bun carries a new, out-of-the-box design that creates a cosy and comfortable dining environment with distinctively Vietnamese features.

Yes if you like Vietnamese food obviously. I think it's very tasty.
Service was quick so great if you are short of time. We went pre theatre so excellent location and value.

While the food may look delicious, it most definitely wasn’t. Felt slightly disappointed from our visit here. The food was not properly cooked, it was either dry, cold, or underseasoned. We went for a meal option they have where you could get 1 starter, 1 main and 1 dessert for £29. We thought this sounded decent so went for it. Bad idea as we realised that it was tiny portions of food that you could have gotten of the regular menu (its actual portion) for the same amount of money! Rediculous.
Staff was also very distracted and not particularly paying attention.

Would definitely not recommend. No value for money, tiny portions, mediocre service.

Delicious food in a casual setting. The service was pretty slow so we had to flag down waiting staff from time to time but it's a small place so that wasn't hard! Rather than being asked to vacate after a set time we were made to feel welcome to stay for a long time enjoying a catch up and many glasses of wine. Good fun.

Plenty of seating (was able to book for group of 8 day before), affordable, quick service. Good location.

Just would have been good if they put on the aircon sooner downstairs. Also some dishes were overseasoned.

The service wasn’t great, the waitress seemed annoyed with us from the outset. Some of our party enjoyed their food but others thought it was only mediocre.

A lovely little place conveniently located near to Soho and Piccadilly. Service was fast so would suit pre/post theatre dinner and indeed they have an offer/deal which reflects this. The food was lovely and reasonably priced. The only thing I'd say is that it is tiny so if your group is larger than 4 people you would struggle to fit. Make sure you phone ahead and book. The Bao bun with custard dessert is to die for! Likewise my starter of pork spare ribs were the most tender I've ever eaten. Highly recommended.

generous portion, great value for the rice bowls, plenty of vegan and vegetarian options
affordable.

Staffs are lovely and friendly and considerate.

It was a bit cold with the front door swings open when customers enter and leave, but they do have a downstairs sitting area too.

Good location in Soho with authentic tasty food. Set menu is good value except for some reason the squid is only four pieces even when paying a supplement. This place is tiny with a busy vibe with tables packed in; recommend sitting downstairs so that you have a slightly greater sense of space. Good for a quick casual lunch but not if you want a date or any private conversation.

A friend recommended Pho & Bun and it was perfect for a pre theatre meal. Great selection of dishes and options for vegetarians, vegans and people with gluten intolerances. Portions a good size and everything tasted fresh and delicious. Will try pho next time as my friend wasn't sharing!

Been here before, this time it wasn't good as before. Comfy pork burger was way better the time we visited before. Service could be way better, on our entrance waiter was rather rude and looked down on us. We are coming to enjoy the food and we were expecting a welcoming and great atmosphere, but it was far from it.

Lovely staff and great food! Came here for a lone lunch experience and it was awesome. Great portions and brilliant taste. The Bao Burger was definitely an experience - I recommend you try it! The restaurant wasn’t too busy at the time I dined here but giving how great valued the food is, I would not be surprised if its a popular spot in the evenings! I would come here again 100%!
