Maybe the the owners took heed of the critical comments about service because it was pretty good when we visited. The food, shared monkfish and spicy salad were spot on, too. The only blemish was the music blaring away in the background and reducing the cool factor the restaurant aspires to.

Portion sizes small, too much msg, staff very unfriendly, felt hurried out the door as bill shoved in our face without asking.

Disappointing service, well overpriced. I went there for lunch a few days ago, ordered a chicken curry. To my surprise there was one potato in there. Not sure now if the dish always comes with potatoes and if so why they only but one in? It looked a bit odd. as also there wasn't much chicken in there at all. The dish was okay though, not great but would give it a 2 star rating. What really annoyed me though was the service. It is lunch time and there is plenty of offers for that time at the other Vietnamese places (who have much better food than this one). The menu I got at first was the normal, very expensive evening menu. Only on my request the waiter then gave me the correct lunch menu. It went further that he gave me an annoyed look as I requested tab water - I dont find that unusual at lunch time. After all the restaurant was completely empty so who bothers. When I was finally eating the tiny overpriced portion the waiter said he will fix the table now. (which was wonky) When I told him that I don't mind that as I am eating he did it anyway and now while eating I find this guy between my legs - what is this? So now the bill comes and they add 12.5 service charge. Of course not compulsory. So I don't put it as I was disappointed three times now and what happens the waiter askes me angrily, so you don't add service charge? No I don't and for some time I won't come back. I highly recommend Viet Hoa for lunch time, they do excellent lunch offers for 6,50 only and do excellent service/ also no service charge. Guess what, I always tip.

The service was so poor I am leaving this review. I would not usually leave a review. We were a table of 10. From the start when only half the table's order was taken I thought there would be trouble. Only some starters arrived to start off with. Some mains arrived before starters. Mains arrived while eating the starters. Orders for other tables. No staff member seemed to care. No one said sorry until we said that no one had said sorry. When the bill arrived, there was no gesture on the restaurant behalf. Only the usual 12 1/2% discretionary service charge, of which we had to ask to be taken off. Some of the food was okay, my lamb was tough and more onion than lamb. Rice was cold and as if pre bowled the day before. The bill was still £45.00 per head. Way to expensive for both the quality and of course service. Totally dissatisfied. I do not recommend this restaurant.

We went for Viet Grill for late lunch yesterday, restaurant was busy at the time, hence the service was great, staff was friendly. Even though it's the first time we here, but waiter was showing their knowledge about the menu and Vietnamese Food and help us to combine all the dishes. Even though the portion is a little small, but tasted perfect. We definitely gonna come back.

Poor, poor, service. Food unquestionably excellent, but as at Cay Tre, the kitchen is let down by the staff, and more recently the greedy management hiking prices and halving portion sizes. New manager Charles listened to comments and did nothing about them. A shame.

I asked for duck, they give me chicken. I asked for rice, they gave me beer, What the hell... They rushed me to eat chicken even though I didnt want chicken and im really upset. Did they not understand me? Im asian too.
