Although quite basic - this restaurant doesn’t need bells and whistles. The star here is the exquisite food which is very fresh, very tasty and very vibrant.
My guest was vegan- and had no problems finding plenty of food to eat. We shared rice rolls, veggie Pho and papaya salad.
Everything was delicious and made to a high standard. Service was quick and efficient without feeling rushed. I’d definitely recommend it and will be visiting again.

We dine here before the theatre occasionally. This time the food was a bit below par and the prices seemed to have gone up. The service was fine, though, and I dare say we will be back.

I had a Barbecue Pork Vermicelli, delicious and filling. Only £12 in total. 1 main, no starters required as it was a nice portion.

Small, basic looking place, but has an authentic vibe and some quite unique dishes. In a fabulous location - you can have an aperativo out the front of Carlucios right next door.

Tasty Vietnamese food, set menu was good and varied, loads of different vegetables and large portions. Just feel this restaurant could do with a bit of a makeover - its a little bit down at heel which doesn’t reflect the fresh and vibrant food.

I was there with a few friends and had the lunch special menu. It was great value.
the starters (side dish) was quite small so thought the main course would be small too but boy was I wrong. It was quite a large portion and very tasty. They also had vegan options and the server was knowledgeable regarding which dishes were gluten free.
The servers were great and patient as one of my friends was running late.
I'll certainly return.

Food mixed, from fantastic scallops starter to disappointing fish cake noodles and slow cooked sea bass. My wife’s stomach was very upset after our visit, hence the low rating. Service was good though, as was the ambience.

Good, casual, Vietnamese in the heart of the West End. Prices are very reasonable for this area but we felt the food was not quite the standard of other Vietnames restaurants we have been to.

You know you’ve had a good meal when you are thinking how good the food was the next day!
Will definitely return to this genuine restaurant with such friendly, helpful staff who were right to curb our over ordering as portions were large. We went for the set menu and added the duck dish to it and thoroughly enjoyed all of the dishes. Although its not fancy in terms of decor - the location, the food and the friendliness of the staff make it stand out as an ideal choice for a meal in Covent Garden.

Our table was underneath one of the arches which was pleasant but a bit too dim and the seating was a bit small. The starters were delicious. The mains were mediocre. Overall the service was exceptional.

Fantastic experience for less than £60 for two. The portion sizes were generous and the flavours strong. Unfortunately the softshell crab had run out, but the chilli squid was a great replacement as a starter. The signature spicy noodle dish was spot on, as was the slow cooked chicken with steamed rice. Service was very good from attentive and knowledgeable staff. Also being in the heart of Covent Garden, made it very easy for pre dinner and post dinner drinks.

Food was very greasy with added animal fat. My scallops came in rendered beef(?) fat. I am not familiar with the Vietnamese cuisine specialties but this version agreed with neither my taste nor my digestion. I admit there were many other customers and one person in our group of three that seemed to be enjoying the foods. I’m writing this review for those who have tastes similar to mine.
Otherwise, the place was great, the staff was attentive and the prices were very reasonable. We were vacationing in London from the United States.
