Building on our experience at Viet Eat Holborn, Viet Eat Pho & Bun was created in October 2015, with a new concept that aims at revolutionising the offering of Vietnamese street food in London.
Pho & Bun is located on the popular Shaftesbury Avenue, adjacent to both London China Town and Soho, and minutes away from many West End theatres, including Queen’s theatre – home to the famous Les Misérables. Pho & Bun carries a new, out-of-the-box design that creates a cosy and comfortable dining environment with distinctively Vietnamese features.

Unfortunately, a disappointing experience. The staff were very friendly, however, I felt that the food standard was not very good and I have tried better Vietnamese food elsewhere. It is difficult to pinpoint exactly what was the weakness, but the dishes were not particularly taste. There are a lot better alternatives, particularly, in its location.

The food was reasonably sized and freshly prepared, but the service was poor. There were too few waiting staff in a very cramped space . It took ten minutes to catch their attention to place an order, and later our drinks sat waiting on the counter as nobody was available to serve them. I expect the place is a lot nicer at quiet times in the day so would not recommend visiting of an evening, but would rate the fresh and tasty food!

Awful service and aggressive and patronising email front open table telling us off for "not attending" when we did attend- I was 5 mins early and ran to ensure this did not happen- and spent over 70 GBP for terrible lacklustre service! Open table then send generic apology templates as opposed to checking with the restaurant first if we did attend!! An awful way to end an average evening. Based on the Customer Services lacklustre and basic response I will never use Open table again!

A solid value option with a fairly no frills atmosphere. Tables are packed closely together but this is to be expected. The bao burgers are really good and the seafood pho was excellent.

It was absolutely freezing - everybody in the restaurant had their coat on and it was still cold. The service was also poor and we left after waiting 30 minutes for our dessert.

Very nice restaurant. The food was very tasty and there were lots of options in the menu, however we weren't very happy with the service as we had to wait quite a lot of time for the food and drinks.

Very nice food and good value for money. Tiny restaurant and can feel crowded, though we were lucky to get a nice table downstairs that felt more private. All my friends loved it.

The tables are very very close together so much so that you could hear conversations of each other. The starter platter was good and sufficient to share with another. However the main meal which was a chicken curry was cold and the vegetables on the side tasted like it was about to go off. Would I go again... no, there are so many choices a few doors down, it’s certainly does not deserve a second visit.

I booked pho and bun for a birthday dinner for two and it was brilliant, the staff were really attentive and friendly and the food was amazing. We both had the 6 course tasting menu which is more like a selection of starters (served on one plate) followed by choice of main and dessert. We thought it was great value for money but the drinks were quite pricey, especially the cocktails which where tiny. But overall great experience and I would go again.

Their Bao burgers are so yummy! The food came out quickly and they do great tasting menus where you get 2 starters, a main and a desert plus a drink. I think they could improve a bit on their deserts as they were a bit weird tasting but the rest of the food is top notch. I will be back :)

Had a group booking at Pho & Bun and even though we were slightly late (possibly 10 minutes) they were very accommodating and showed us to our table. The service was fine and the food was good as expected. We all enjoyed ourselves, especially the food.

Service was non-existent, and I really expected more from the food. I love Vietnamese food, and I love street food, but the pork belly in the bao burger I had was tough and not very flavoursome.

Service was very inattentive. Food was mediocre. After expressing our disappointment with the food (the server did ask... long after we had finished) we were offered something off the menu to make up for it. Food was very salty but it took a very long time to get water refilled.
