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.

The food was amazing! The atmosphere was great too -relaxed and chilled. We had the offer of four courses and a drink - such a great deal. Go for the iced coconut desert -lovely.

The place has real feel of Vietnam and the food is fresh and delicious. Waiters are attentive but not pushy. I’ll be back, as will my friend.

Food was really nice, tasty and huge main portions.
Unfortunately service wasn't attentive at all.
Pretty dissapointing, as place is very small and every table is visible, had feeling of being ignored.
Service charge was included into the bill, which I wasnt over the moon to pay.

There are a lot of average places for pho in London but this place is my favourite (just for the pho) so 5 stars for that! Delicious. Service however was pretty bad this time. I've been here a few times and this time was poor. I mentioned I had a booking on Open Table and the waitress just looked at me blankly (lucky there were spare tables). Had to catch the same waitress' attention just to ask for menus 10 minutes after being seated. Then the starters (spring rolls) came out and it was served in a little wicker basket but the dipping sauce placed inside it had tipped over in the basket so the sauce was dripping through the holes in the weaved basket. The waitress still carried it to our table with her hand under the basket catching the dripping liquid and put it on the table, passing over our drinks with her hand catching the drops. The sauce then made a big mess on the table. What was she thinking?! I'd have gladly waited if she only went and put the food in a new basket or dish and carried the sauce on the side. I noticed there was a sign on the restaurant looking for new staff - yes! Get new staff who know what decent service is!! The stupid thing is, we still paid the 12.5% service charge because I guess "that's what's done in London". If it wasn't for the tasty pho I would have made a fuss and refused to pay it. This restaurant was a favourite of mine but after this experience I'm re-thinking whether I should return.

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.

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 :)
