This place used to be great. But its new management in the last year or so have sucked all the soul from the place. The service is so bad its almost comedic, and the price point is ludicras. A saigon beer cost £4.25 compared to an average of £2.40 in other Vietnamese on kingsland road. The food is still pretty good as the same team are in the kitchen. But front of house is deplorable. After around 7 years of our loyalty the last few visits have been so bad that we now have to go elsewhere. Avoid.

what the bloggers say



Thursday, March 31, 2011 - Collectively the portions were fine and they all tasted sort of okay, somewhat bland (again). The 'taste' just didn't do justice to the ingredients especially the meat dishes even though all the spices, herbs and MSG were there in full Technicolor glory...Service wasn't that great either; the waiters looked very busy all the time and kept kicking the legs of my chair, then hid behind a giant fish-tank or behind the bar.

Tuesday, July 06, 2010 - We ordered the mandatory bowl of pho, this one in particular made 'with tender beef poached in a full bodied chilli broth, smothered in Viet basil and smashed nuts'. It was bloody full bodied alright, a big whack of chilli, like pouring a volcano down the throat. Also present were rich flavours of tomatoes. The soup was cloudy, so I assumed it was coconut cream that I was tasting, along with slices of mango. About the the only thing I found wanting were the noodles, I thought they were a little too mushy.

Tuesday, April 06, 2010 - The mango salad contained fragrant Thai basil, tasty shoots of (I think) lotus stem, a couple of hits of bright red chilli and - best of all - crunchy tubes of salty dried squid tentacles, and it all worked together perfectly...The beautiful, tender, charcoal-seared 'Feudal roasted beef' was one of the more expensive starters, but boy do you get your money's worth. First of all, the sheer quantity of it, and also, the beef itself was superb, powerfully marinated and served with an umami-rich soy dressing.
