About Tay Do Restaurant

Vietnamese restaurants in London are going from strength to strength, but – like everything in Shoreditch – everyone says that they were before the trend. When we tell you that Tay Do Restaurant have been in business since 2000, well before the current vogue for Vietnam, we’re not asserting their inalienable hipster credentials, we’re simply stating the enduring popularity that they have enjoyed among the locals in this part of East London. Pay them a visit on Kingsland Road and it won’t take you long to realise why the punters keep on coming back: a simple menu of Saigon specialities, cooked in the traditional manner and served quickly in a welcoming environment. Book a table online today and try them out for yourself.

More about Tay Do Restaurant, London

Tay Do has stood on Kingsland Road in Shoreditch since the summer of 2000, and can lay a claim to being among the first Vietnamese restaurants in East London. They pride themselves on their originality: aside from the trail-blazing in terms of popularising their cuisine in Shoreditch they also emphasise the authenticity of their dishes. Thanh Nguyen and Thanh Pham, the husband and wife team that founded the restaurant, recreate the taste of their home town of Tay Do (now called Can Tho) in South Vietnam, through a menu that is packed with the classics of the cuisine and a whole host of street food favourites.

When you arrive at Tay Do on Kingsland Road in Shoreditch, you’re going to head straight for the starters. We’d recommend the house platter, which includes spring rolls, prawn toast, fried spare ribs and crispy seaweed, or the green papaya salad with shredded dry beef or seafood. Follow that up with a proper bowl of pho – Vietnamese national dish, a soup with beef and rice noodles – or a seafood special, such as the special king prawns with chilli and lemongrass or the braised Mekong cat fish baked in a clay pot with caramel sauce. Whatever you choose, you won’t be disappointed by the food on offer at Tay Do – just remember to book a table before you arrive, as this is one of the most popular Vietnamese restaurants in East London and they will fill up.

It is a bit far to travel from West London to get there, but it is worth it. The food is delicious, fresh and tasty; the portion size is generous and the price is good. The service is very friendly too. The restaurant was recommended by a friend and I will certainly recommend it to my friends. Recommend: Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Vietnamese Egg Omelette, Chicken Satay (Okay, this one is not traditionally Vietnamese!).

Fantastic food, Great choice, Great Location and so much choice - will be coming back again. We ordered the pancake, it was amazing so much flavour. The only thing is they need to tell customers before they sit down that the card machine doesn't work.

I had my birthday dinner with my group of friends of 26. The staff was very accommodating and very kind, as some of us was very loud and vocal with celebratory singing! Everyone said the food was excellent and tasty, so thank you very much Tay Do.

Great food at cheap prices delivered very quickly and free BYO on the night we went. Would recommend - there are more than one Tay Do's on Kingsland road so double check the one you are booked for.

"Good"4/6

Great food, and I do kind of like the fact that you have to take your own wine because you can then pay less for a nicer bottle in a shop and take it. The downfall is it’s not a particularly nice place to sit down in, bright lights and no music.
