Best Vietnamese food I’ve had, so fresh and full of flavour
Lovely staff - great food - good to visit outside of 12.00 - 13.30 when it gets very busy.
Great food and good value. Lovely place for dinner with friends
Beautiful food and lovely helpful staff. Will be recommending this place to everyone!
A lovely, friendly little restaurant serving excellent food. From my arival onwards the service in Banh Mi Bay was excellent and very friendly. The waitress explained the many things I don't know about Thia food clearly and the recommendations she made came up to the mark. The salad starter was fresh and tasty and had a real zing to it. Tilapia for main, served with a tamarind sauce was excellent and the wine was up to the job. I'll be back, taking people with me.
Banh mi Bay Authentic Vietnamese food with no fuss. Rustic, simple country style interior with wooden floors and wooden tables and chairs all looking a little 'pre-loved'. The staff are endearing and friendly with big smiles. The food is really great quality, fresh and fragrant ingredients and lots to choose from! We had the veggie summer rolls to share and 1 veggie and 1 beef pho which were all really tasty, I wanted to try more but we were pretty stuffed! This place is open lunchtimes and evenings and for takeaway too! Fantastic food and an informal setting.
The restaurant is in a large space and echoey, but then many places are like that so that's not exceptional. And the restaurant staff were not responsible for the shrieking customers whose laughter was reverberating all around the room last night. It wasn't unpleasant as the rowdy table were obviously having a great time together, it was just a bit loud, given the echoey surroundings. The one thing that I think the restaurant should correct is the idea that the restaurant is near Holborn; it isn't. The nearest tube is Chancery Lane.
Less frantic than a lunchtime visit so early evening perfect - not surprisingly, this place fills up pretty quickly so bear in mind that what you order may take longer to deliver than other dishes (sea bass and curry dish took much longer to prepare than rare beef pho for example)...lovely staff and always great value for money. Glad we booked a table at 6pm so we could settle in and enjoy a chilled out atmosphere with friendly service
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!
Banh Mi Bay Holborn is just down the road from work. They were a bi confused on my booking when I entered but the food was amazing!
