On a rainy day in Soho, a friend and I set out on a difficult mission of finding a perfect place for lunch. The task wasn't easy: my friend fancied Asia food, while I needed a plug socket, free fast WiFi and a reasonably quiet place to make few calls. Ho ticked all the boxes: delicious food, great Vietnamese coffee, polite and helpful staff, relaxed atmosphere and 2-4-1 cocktails in the evening!

We booked online and went for the set menu prosseco offer, great value all the starters come as sharing plates with well balanced flavours. The staff were attentive at the right times. We would go back again!


I've been lots of time and have always been impressed. Yesterday we were on the Time Out brunch and limitless prosecco deal, which was amazing!

The downside of unlimited prosecco is that my memory is hazy. The choice, amount and quality of food that came with the was faultless. The dessert some sort of green custard brûlée was delicious.

My only quibbles were that a 2 hour time slot felt quite pressured, the staff didn't take their usual care explaining the dishes & once our 2 hour slot was over they pretty much ignored us. We had to work quite hard to get their attention and get more drinks.

But despite that I can't wait to go back because I love the food & the atmosphere & they do great cocktails.

Staff Comp

Came here on Friday on a whim, and we were very impressed by the quality of the food. Modern Vietnamese food presented in small sharing plates is a wonderful idea. All dishes were executed very well - in particular the grilled octopus which I can say was hands-down the best I have had to date - cooked and seasoned to perfection. 

The Salmon Tartare was also exceptional. 

Price wise, it's not bad either for Soho - there's a great vibe and the staff were very friendly.
