So delicious! The short rib pho is definitely worth it. Pricier than your regular chain pho places, but so much better quality it’s completely worth it! Plus I love that they use free range and organic ingredients, and no MSG. I’m always happy to pay extra for higher quality ingredients. The flavours in the sauces that went with the prawns and softshell crab appetisers were so tasty and a good level of spice. I will definitely be back and can finally say I’ve found my pho place in London!! Lychee martini was also great and didn’t skimp on the booze:)

The chef owner of this little restaurant is an amazing artist. Dish after dish we were surprised and awed by the beauty of the food and the authentic tasting cuisine. The service we received from the chef's son's friend who is working at the restaurant was very friendly, personal and he gave us a real insight into the care and attention that the chef owner puts into this little gem. It's a real neighbourhood find, one I think is worth travelling to and I really hope they successfully expand nearer to Shepherds Bush where I live! They are planning some media launches and expansion in 2018 and this is definitely a place to watch...

Worth the trip to this little hideaway. The food is excellent and delivered in a timely fashion even when busy. Quantities are good as opposed to not quite enough (normally I am just getting to like the flavour and it's all gone!). So I was very happy with my choice. Spice levels were bang on and I would definitely go again. The friendly atmosphere and cosy surroundings would make it a great place to bring your partner.

The food here was Vietnamese, and I absolutely loved it! Great big portions but more importantly the ingredients tasted so fresh and amazing that myself and my partner were extremely impressed. The service was great, very friendly, kind staff. It has some fairy light decoration at one end of the restaurant which makes for a lovely ambience. We will definitely be coming back again and again.

What an amazing night, the food was out of this world, every dish was presented like a painting and the effort that was put in shone through. The flavours were authentic and fresh and the sharing options on all dishes was perfect for our group. The cocktail list was fun and had hints of Asia in with chilli's, peanuts and coconut mixed in with classics such as old fashions and margaritas. The overall dining experience was amazing and this was one of the best meals I've had in a while and would put this up there as one of the top restaurants in London.

The spring rolls are amazing, the best ones in London. All the dishes were tasty. Can't wait to try the Pho.
Very warm and nice atmosphere and service!
I highly recommend this place.
