Mama Pho

South East London

This Vietnamese occupies the original site of Café East, which has since moved to larger premises near the Surrey Quays Leisure Centre. Run by members of the same family who own Café East, the menu has stayed true to the original; as its name suggests, pho (noodle soup) is a mainstay.

Mama Pho is slicker than its predecessor. The noodle dishes can be meals in themselves and portion sizes in general are very large. Douse it all in a sweetly piquant nuoc cham dressing for a real thrill.

As Mama Pho is a small Cafe, the soups and flavours seems to be specially made (Not like the bigger franchises where they make it in bulk batches and flavourless, e.g. if you go Westfields or even Cafe East in Surrey Quays Complex). This makes a big differncein flavours as Mama Pho tastes 'home made' and is definately value for money and large American size portions, with easy to access to parking on the side roads. Definately 5 stars+

The soups are fantastic - proper fragrant tasty broth and decent amount of herbs and chillis are brought to table to go with it. The vietnamese pancake is really tasty too. The soups are the best vietnamese soups I have had in London.

This is definitely the best and freshest Vietnamese/Oriental/Asian food I've had in London. Generous sized portions and by far my favorite fish sauce in town wish i could buy it and stock at home to have with rice, salad, and chicken even. I've had this sauce in many Chinese/Asian restaurants in town but this one is the one. Their chicken cooked to perfection, Not dry but juicy and crispy if with skin, and their noodle soups full of flavor and character. They also have great and friendly staff/service and very busy at times get their first ;) i will definitely be back for more.
