“Very basic”, but zippy, Vietnamese chow (“soft shell crab, YOM!”) has made this busy dive one of the better known in Shoreditch’s ‘Little Vietnam’ on the Kingsland Road. “Sometimes service is a little bit attitude-y, but you’re not going for that; and it’s crowded, but the food’s the focus”.

“Very keen pricing” ensures that this “long-standing Vietnamese” canteen on a busy stretch of Shoreditch’s Kingsland Road is always hopping, its sharing tables crammed with customers wolfing down pho and other Viet dishes.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
