Summary

“It looks a bit like a Hanoi works canteen”, but “if you don’t mind full-on and sharing tables”, fans say you get “wonderful, no frills” chow at this Shoreditch Vietnamese; critics, though, “expect more” – they say the food’s “not as fresh and delicate as it used to be”.

Summary

“It’s a bit of a canteen, but you will be fed in the best possible way”, and at “low prices” too, say fans of this “brusque” Vietnamese, in Shoreditch; sceptics, though, say standards are “slipping” and that its cooking is “not competitive with others in the strip”.

Summary

“Crazy menu, crazy choices, crazy green decor sometimes crazy queues!” – this “authentic” Shoreditch Vietnamese “marches to its own, no-frills beat”; some long-term fans, though, think it’s “gone way downhill” in recent years.
