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.
While London is certainly no stranger to unique, exotic and fantastic cuisine from all across the globe, it is truly special when you stumble across an authentic gem such as Tay Do Cafe. This Bethnal Green delight specialises in bringing the taste of Vietnamese cuisine to the city, and London locals are just loving it. Take your pick from street food staples, or go for a South Vietnamese specialty, while enjoying the relaxing atmosphere and delightful service, Mr Thanh Nguyen and Mrs Thanh Pham bring to their adored regulars, seven days per week.
Whether you’re in for a lunch time treat, or for a long evening with friends or family, Tay Do Cafe will tick all the right boxes. For lunch, we love nothing better than a warming and refreshing pho soup, either vegetarian or chicken, or the special chow mein brimming with chicken, pork and shrimp. For the night-goers, sampling their fresh summer rolls is a must, followed by perhaps the fried sea bass with salt, chilli and lemongrass, aubergine stirfried with beef, pork or chicken, or the Tay Do Cafe signature of chilli and lemongrass in coconut milk. Whatever your choice, you’re in for a treat so reserve a spot at Tay Do Cafe as soon as you can. You’ll find them in Bethnal Green, just along Kingsland Road.
My favourite Viet! This is the place that set my Viet food tasting standards!
This is my fav Viet food in London so far (& I've tried MANY)!
We went on Mother's Day. The staff were really lovely people, we had some great food and it was very good value. We loved it.
