I was there with a few friends and had the lunch special menu. It was great value.
the starters (side dish) was quite small so thought the main course would be small too but boy was I wrong. It was quite a large portion and very tasty. They also had vegan options and the server was knowledgeable regarding which dishes were gluten free.
The servers were great and patient as one of my friends was running late.
I'll certainly return.

Food mixed, from fantastic scallops starter to disappointing fish cake noodles and slow cooked sea bass. My wife’s stomach was very upset after our visit, hence the low rating. Service was good though, as was the ambience.

You know you’ve had a good meal when you are thinking how good the food was the next day!
Will definitely return to this genuine restaurant with such friendly, helpful staff who were right to curb our over ordering as portions were large. We went for the set menu and added the duck dish to it and thoroughly enjoyed all of the dishes. Although its not fancy in terms of decor - the location, the food and the friendliness of the staff make it stand out as an ideal choice for a meal in Covent Garden.

Our table was underneath one of the arches which was pleasant but a bit too dim and the seating was a bit small. The starters were delicious. The mains were mediocre. Overall the service was exceptional.

Fantastic experience for less than £60 for two. The portion sizes were generous and the flavours strong. Unfortunately the softshell crab had run out, but the chilli squid was a great replacement as a starter. The signature spicy noodle dish was spot on, as was the slow cooked chicken with steamed rice. Service was very good from attentive and knowledgeable staff. Also being in the heart of Covent Garden, made it very easy for pre dinner and post dinner drinks.

Food was very greasy with added animal fat. My scallops came in rendered beef(?) fat. I am not familiar with the Vietnamese cuisine specialties but this version agreed with neither my taste nor my digestion. I admit there were many other customers and one person in our group of three that seemed to be enjoying the foods. I’m writing this review for those who have tastes similar to mine.
Otherwise, the place was great, the staff was attentive and the prices were very reasonable. We were vacationing in London from the United States.

Set menu was better than average with an interesting sharing plate starter followed by a dish each plus rice and a vet - under £50 for two. It was lively with people who obviously knew it was a gem, rather than people just passing by. We were in a rush pre-theatre, but you could spent the evening there. Will definitely go again.

We had the lunch special for £11.50 per person. This included a starter, a main and a soft drink. We had the tempura Salt and Pepper squid and the prawn Summer Roll, both delicious, though the squid was the better of the two. We each had Pho, which was luscious and filling. The added dudes of cilantro, spearmint (?!), chilis, bean sprouts and lime all added a freshness and herbal quality that were wonderful!
Definitely a great place for a lunch, close to the Covent Garden Market at a great price.
