Overall, a bit disappointing as I’d eaten great pho lately. The vegetarian pho was a bit lacklustre in terms of flavour which was a shame, especially when the broth was supposedly brewed for 18 hours.

The meat-based food may well be more flavoursome, though. Cool place but needs more welly!

BAO buns were immense. Main course was nice but not fantastic as lacked in taste a bit. Service was efficient rather than friendly but overall it seemed good value!

Not as good as previous visits: the room was swelteringly hot on a warm day with no ventilation, and some maintenance works meant a huge hole in the pavement blocking the door! Some dishes were as delicious as I'd remembered from a previous visit, but some missed the mark a little this time.

Another very tasty meal at Bang Bang. I love this place. Quirky and basic setting but delicious food and great value for money.

Food was good. Duck spring rolls could’ve used a little more duck, bao was great was was the noodle dish.

Cool spot to grab a bite.

First time eating here and was impressed with the food (lovely ‘zingy ‘ salad with my beef) and the atmosphere inside.
Very reasonable pricing too.

Food was ok but not amazing. A bit too much onion in this vietnamese (I usually go to the ones on the Kingsland road in Hackney). Service by the lady was a little abrupt.

Great food but awful service. I booked a table weeks in advance for 3 of us for 9 P.M. One of my friends got there before us and was told on arrival that the booking was for 8. He disputed and proved this by showing the booking email. Of course due to the incompetence of the staff there were no dining tables now available (in the booth) so they gave us the “cheap seats “ in the front. This is the absolute WRONG way to treat paying customers when the fault lies with the establishment.

No sooner had we sat down than the waiter was pushing us to order and this continued throughout- they even brought the bill before asking us if we wanted to order dessert

Sure the food was great but they really treated us poorly . They couldn’t honour the booking correctly and rushed us throughout. Terrible place - no recommendation from me

Hi, We are sorry to hear of your bad experience. It was indeed our mistake for getting the time of your reservation wrong and I have already asked the staff to be more careful next time. As for the 'cheap seats' I'm afraid it makes up 70% of our seating as it is meant to be casual dining and I can only apologise if it's not your preferred style of furniture.

You can always rely on Bang Bang for excellent food - the bao are delicious, as are the noodles on offer. Was also really impressed with the service - they were great. We brought a birthday cake in, which was totally fine - plus they were nice enough to pop a candle in for us

Service was great and friendly. Ambiance was good. Food was a little lack luster I found, but that could have been because we were in a bit of a rush/I chose the wrong dish.

I am gluten and dairy free. Instead of flicking through a folder to find a dish I could have, it would be great if allergens could be marked on the menu :)

I would go back - but with a little more time to enjoy the food and flick through the folder....

Food was ok, a bit average compared to other Vietnamese little restaurants. The place has a nice casual atmosphere. There was a mix up with our order, but other than that it was fine.

Never had Vietnamese food before, it was a great introduction to everyone - from the not so adventurous to full on adventurous types. There’s plenty of choice, meat options, heat ranges and noodles. It didn’t have the feel of a canteen, a great find. Would love to go back! Found a new cuisine to try over and over again.

Everything was good about this restaurant.
Just a little pricy, but considering the area, prob not.
Good indication of authenticity - several groups of SE Asian diners

Excellent food and value, in a really nice casual setting. The music was great, and my only criticism would be that the service was somewhat slow (having a server come to greet us/take our orders/for the bill only. The food itself came out very quickly).

The food we had was excellent. It was a shame that it was let down by the service. We had reserved a table and were shown to it straight away. The waitress came back a few moments later to take our order and the food arrived almost instantly! But after that we were never checked on, or asked if we wanted anything else or more drinks. We would have kept ordering drinks and probably more food but noone asked us for over an hour. We eventually got somes attention (after a bit of trying!) and they were slightly more attentive from then on.

This tiny little place is always full to the brim, so book to avoid disappointment- the food is fabulous, service is efficient and friendly and the prices are unbelievably cheap- 3 courses for 2 with beer and service and you'll get change from £50!! Highly recommended

Great service and food, but the noise level was such we could not have a conversation. That said, if you want tasty, filling and good value Vietnamese food on Euston Road you don't need to look further

This was a fantastic find. One of the best Vietnamese eats in London. Far better than the likes of Pho. Highly recommend it to foodies. Not a business lunch place but great for private meals, friends' gatherings etc.
