About Tay Do Cafe

Tay Do Cafe is somewhat of a London institution when it comes to Vietnamese food. Since 2000, the family behind Tay Do have prided themselves on being one of the first (and best) Vietnamese eateries in Bethnal Green, specialising in South Vietnamese dishes such as hu tieu noodle soup and an array of produce from the grill that can be lovingly wrapped in rice paper. Not just that, diners can also enjoy classic street food flavours in the way of Vietnam staple, pho, as well zesty salads and seriously fresh seafood. The chefs here have over 30 years experience in preparing exceptional Vietnamese food with the highest quality ingredients. It’s fresh, it’s aromatic, it’s feel-good. Book ahead, however, because this hotspot on Kingsland Road is popular and can fill up.

We were 15 minutes late and they already given away our table. However, we could get another table for 5 with a little wait. On the Pho Mile, I like Tay Do because it is BYO with onlya pound a head for corkage. They are maybe a little more expensive than some of their competitors, but they make up for it with larger portions. Of the BYO places on this strip of Kingsland Rd, the Tay Do Cafe has the best acoustics. You don't have to shout to have a conversation, even on a crowded Saturday night. Standout dishes are char grilled lamb cutlets, and grilled goat from the starters. Deep fried whole sea bream with chilli and lemongrass and aubergine stir fried with chicken from the mains.

We arrived 15 minutes late to a reserved table, but the staff were kind enough to keep our table for us when I called to say we were running late. The food was decent - we enjoyed classic beef pho and a variety of rice noodle bowls, all of which came with fresh ingredients. Our only gripe was our server splashed one of us with pho soup when tidying the plates away, but didn't even bother apologising! He just made a joke and laughed it off - we found this extremely rude. So despite the tasty food, we don't think we'll be back unless service improves.

Food was was delicious and bring your own alcohol is always a plus, but service wise we're disappointed. Our extra order never arrived, we got a bill on a table even when we didn't ask for it yet and we needed to ask for a change. We wanted to leave a tip, but that should be our choice, not assuming that the change would be left anyway and not bother to bring it to us. Will get back for food and hope service will improve by then..
