We enjoyed the £10 lunch menu before theatre. Nice, tasty and fresh. Good service and a great spot to people watch. The pho wasn't the absolute best but still pretty good. Nice ribs and spring rolls. Friendly quick service and great prices.

This has become a favourite place to meet a friend at Covent Garden. The main courses are delicious, especially the big soups with fresh vegetables and noodles. The downstairs room gets a little cold and noisy so get there early to grab one of the few street level tables!

Disappointed: food bland and lacklustre. The caramelised chicken in particular was a real let down and even unpleasant. The duck was ok but far from authentic. Pretty place and friendly service.

Just had lunch at Com Viet. Very disappointing. We had the Pho, which was bland and had hardly any meat in it. Also had the Carmelized Chicken. It was tiny and the rice on the side was 4 pounds. It was just a small bowl with about a thigh's worth of chicken in a salty soupy sauce. Had I not... More

Booked early to avoid a queue, and the table was ready for us when we arrived. The waitress was very friendly, and had great knowledge of the menu. The food was amazing, bursting with flavour, and we were surprised at the generous portions! We will certainly return when back in the area.

Very nice surprise! I was expecting a typical touristy restaurant, given the location. I was mistaken! Atmosphere, service and food stsndard were those of a nice, local, friendly restaurant. They were very accommodating with my special dietary requirements too. Good wines choice. A really nice experience at a reasonable price!
