Ridiculously overpriced for a small rice box, not even fill your tummy, only 7 small slices of duck, very blank taste just like a ready-roast duck you get from any chinese supermarket and put in the oven to reheat. Very weird taste sauce come with it (Asian BBQ it s called). Would not come back..not worth a penny for a ready meal from chinese supermarket.

I visited the takeaway deli of Keu. I ordered a steamed bun, which was so tough I struggled to chew it, even the filling was dried out, really unpleasant. Also had the prawn salad, which was tasty but only had 3 prawns in it (cut in half to appear more generous). Felt quite ripped off and disappointed,


I love this place, he best banh mi in London, and the staff are always friendly and cheerful. The tofu and mushrooms is delicious, and they are always happy to make any adjustments - more or less spicy, add in sauces, etc. Whenever I have been, the baguettes have been fresh and light, with nice crunchy crusts (but not hard), and the herb and salad fillings have been generous, fresh, and very tasty.


Maybe Time Out have been cursed with 'off-days' when they have visited, but almost every meal I have had from Keu has been bliss and sent me into rapture. The staff are adorable and somehow find me amusing - perhaps it is my barely suppressed smile of anticipation that tickles them? Anyway, there really isn't much to say except try it - it's all good. Lemon grass chicken curry and rice - yes, Mackerel Banh mi - AWESOME!, Char siu pork on rice - sweet, unctuous, naughty! A wise criminal would deprive the world of it and then tease people with it as a form of torture. Words can not describe! Another hit in the Cay Tre / Viet Grill canon methinks. Well done, well done, well done!
