Went some time ago. Can't remember much, but I think it was reasonable. There's also the William for Vietnamese food(no connection to either - but I have written a review of The William in the restaurant section)
I did get a take away from The William or Pacific something take away, but when it was delivered it was stone cold and they couldn't find my flat. I imagine eating in is better but the experience sort of put me off.
Will do, although I am a creature of habit these days, so can see myself sticking to the place I found in Shoreditch. There's a street with about 10 Vietnamese places there along a 100m stretch. The one i've been to a few times was a a BYO place but the food was superb - I'd go as far to say the best food I have eaten in ages. No connections blah blah!
If you mean the area not too far from Columbia Rd (I think it's Kingsland St, but am probably wrong), then I'd recommend a walk round the Geffrye Museum to aid digestion afterwards. It's a cracking little place, and there are several Vietnamese places on the road leading to it (whose name I can't remember. I'm normally a bit more helpful than this, honest).
Yeah that's the place. It's Kingland Rd, just up from Liverpool St. I actually walk there on a nice day, it's only about 45 mins and much better than getting public transport. We usually stop of in Cafe Kick for a game of table soccer.
Will look out for the museum - thanks.
The Vietnamese place over there that I go to is called the Tay Do cafe if you're interested.
I'm a big fan of vietnamese food.
I usually go to cay tre on old street which does the beef barbeques and good phos(big bowl of soup which you tear herbs into along with lime juice and beansprouts).
I've been to ha-noi and had some deliveries from them ; very variable quality and not a patch on the Kingsland Road lot.
Didn't it use to be called saigon and its changed owners recently?
I thinks its ok but there are better.
There is one in soho that is a godsend as its cheap and central just behing spamalot. thinks its call viet cafe and its byo.
Have the pancake and a beef pho. yum.
