There are a few different restaurants of this around London. The Holborn one is off on a quite street but still bustling. Delicious food. Quick and easy and good price. Big restaurant, good size, and easy to reserve space.

Really loved the food and atmosphere. Very reasonable priced and good value. Bang mi was excellent and the chocolate cake was lovely. Will go again when in London.

Excellent Vietnamese restaurant. The bread is amazing and each filling is delicious. Love the coffee and that you can buy the ground to take home!

I'd been a few times before for their delicious take-away, but returned this time for dinner with a friend. It was fairly quiet and had a relaxed feel on a Monday night, and we ordered a couple of dishes of summer rolls to share. Came very quickly but was fresh. We then had each had a rare beef Pho and it was very tasty. Very reasonable prices, friendly service. I could eat here every day!

The Chicken Pho and mango smoothie were both lovely. Service was good at the beginning but the waiter/waitress to a long time to bring the bill at the end of the meal and we repeatedly asked for water and were not given any. It would be good if we were just given a jug at the beginning rather than having to ask. Waitress at the end split the bill/service charge for the three of us which was useful.

Second time I have been here and it was great. No frills, authentic Vietnamese food. Please keep the pork and shrimp Pho special as a permanent fixture on your menu!!! It is one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten!

Awesome! Tiny place needs booking, rapid service, and most of all extremely fresh and tasty food. I had shredded banana blossom which I'd never even heard of before! Covered with lime, coriander, chilli, peanuts, it was delicious.

Great authentic food, helpful and pleasant staff, unpretentious nice atmosphere, good value. It was obvious that food was freshly cooked and four of us enjoyed our meals. What more can I say.

Lovely day food and quick service for takeaway, slightly more clunky for seated guests. They dont actually accept reservations so I was lucky to have turned up when I did and got a table...

Great food and friendly service, we had Rare Beef Pho and Bay Special, both were delivered promptly and tasted great. The place looked a little run down and in need of some TLC.

My friend and I had a nice time there. The mixed beef pho was delicious, and my friend really enjoyed her satay baguette. Very authentic experience, I'll definitely go again.

Food was very enjoyable, on the whole very flavoursome and tasty. Service wasn't the best but as a small group with no major time constraints, this was not a problem.

Really disappointing food, especially the yellow curry - looked and tasted like curry powder and water with over cooked veg and a few bits of chicken thrown in. Such a shame because the staff were lovely and the fresh juice was tasty too

Lovely pho soup and delicious gelato - would recommend the beef pho. However, service was difficult to get a hold of, attentive once asked. Recommend booking on Saturday nights.

convenient location, simple but comfortable place, friendly staff, quick service. The pho was good and would recommend, but the satay chicken was not up to expectations (would be more authentic with real peanut sauce and on skewers)

The food was great. The service, however, was less than forthcoming. Waiters and chefs alike stared at our table as we talked. I can only assume they were eager to clear our table and to go home.

Great food. The waiter we had though was a little dodgy - he got one of our dishes wrong and kept getting mixed up about the others.

Service was very slow; I had to ask multiple times just for water. The service staff was very nice and the food was good, but probably best to go around lunch or for a pick-up.

While the food was ok, it didn't have the same richness in flavour that I recall from my recent visit to Vietnam. A little disappointing.
