Love the food.

The one-man service is not great but acceptable. But I don't feel like i am welcome as he has never smile. I would happy to see a more welcome service and restaurant to make home deliver available (the shop advertised it, but can't really find them available for deliver, as the option always grey out).

We visited during August having not had a chance before lockdown. The food was really fantastic-very tasty and good sized portions. Staff were very friendly.
All round a lovely restaurant. We will be visiting again soon.

Service wasn't good as after being seated the man didn't come over to take our order. After needing to get up to go to the desk and asking, only to realise he was sleeping with his head down. Knocking the counter twice didn't work, so I had to raise my voice and clap to wake him up. Not a good look. We were not asked if we wanted drinks and then again had to proactively get his attention for the bill. Food was good and felt authentic so was great. But unfortunately would not return due to the poor service. Also prices are quite pricey compared to other independent Vietnamese places (comparing to London). e.g £10.50 for standard beef Pho, whereas would cost approx £8.50 in London for the same or better quality. In addition in light of COVID, tables were not socially distanced and they even placed a group directly next to another group. Menus were already on the table along with cutlery and Siracha sauce, so not sure whether Siracha sauce bottles are cleaned after every customer.

We found this little gem on our visit to Edinburgh. The food is authentic, delicious and you can see it being freshly made. The portions are massive, and spring rolls were the best we have ever had. In addition to delicious food, the staff are absolutely lovely. We were served by a very nice man who accommodated all our questions and served us with a smile the whole time. Would highly recommend a visit :)

The waiter touched my food and pretended nothing happened. Staff don't understand difference between vegetarian and vegan, and think fish is ok for vegetarians. Service very slow. Food was OK. Best thing about this place is BYOB.
