On the way in we were a bit shocked to spot a lighted cigarette planted in the Buddhist shrine ...food was really good - atmosphere was fine ...service poor. Please don't spray cleaner on the table next to where people are sitting - my egg fried rice became egg fried pledge. Quick to lift yer plates to...

Been coming here nearly every weekend for about a year now. Without doubt the best place around. Food is just incredible!

We booked this place for lunch last Sunday. Nice and warm on a cold day. Very scruffy decor. I've seen a lot online about this chain being cheap, I didn't think it was particularly so. Portions were not huge by any means. Flavours were good, I don't know whether they were authentic or not because I don't get to eat... More

Went on Tuesday evening, restaurant was busy. We were served quickly, food was really good and reasonable priced. I had the Vietnamese clay pot curry - would definitely recommend. I'll be returning

My boss recommended this place saying it had great food. I took my friend for her birthday. Big mistake. Stuck by the toilets. Customers and staff barging past every couple of minutes. Rude staff. Food slammed on the table. Awful service. I didn't realise they take cash only so my friend had to pay towards her Birthday meal. Food ok.... More

I was looking forward to meal at this restaurant with two friends. One of our group was running a little late and a member of the staff (possibly the manager?) asked us where she was and made it clear that if she didn't appear very soon we would loose our table. This was at 6.45pm and the restaurant was far... More

Overall this restaurant was good, serving tapas sized dishes. Unfortunately prices are not tapas sized...and the service was a bit too low for being lunch break.

This place is always packed and rightly so as the food is very good. It's not as cheap as it once was and doesn't look like much from the outside but the food is authentic. Remember to bring cash though as its cash only!

Met up with some pals whom I haven't seen for a very long time, this was a restaurant of their choice and one they regularly visit. Easily located up Lavender Hill from Clapham Junction station and with its bright signage. Staff very friendly and helpful. My friends made excellent food choices and treated me to my first Vietnamese meal. An... More
