Time Out says

This Holloway Road Vietnamese restaurant is run by a pair of brothers who grew up in Vietnam. Their aim here is to bring the authentic flavours of their mother country to Islington, via this simple spot close to Holloway Road tube.

The menu ranges from fresh summer rolls, papaya salads and canh chua (a hot and sour soup from south Vietnam) to pho noodle soups, steamed sea bass with ginger and spring onion, bun cha and chim cút nuöng - a dish of char-grilled quail rubbed with honey and spices. 

Desserts include green bean paste with coconut milk and ice, and ché khoai môn - a creamy taro rice pudding with coconut cream. Strong Vietnamese coffee - with or without condensed milk - is also available.

Amazing pho! This place is really delicious, was very happy to find it right in the middle of Holloway Road. The taste of their food is rich and authentic, the place is welcoming and warm, and prices are very generous for the quality presented. Highly recommend!


Just moved to the area and luckily was recommended this place. It doesn't look like it from the outside, but inside it's nice and cosy. The staff has been very welcoming and warm. I love Vietnamese food, especially in the summer and I'm so happy that I live just across the road.

The food was amazing and I had a positive shock once the bill arrived.

Definitely a place to go if you find yourself in the area!


Forget about Kingsland road, this is the best Vietnamese food I've had in London. The Bò Lá Lôt appetiser is just a flavour party - spiced minced beef wrapped in betel leaves, something I've never tried before but could have eaten all night. In fact you could eat a whole meal of all the different appetisers. The mango salad and papaya salad are exactly the right about of sweet, spicy, soft and crunchy, the way Vietnamese should be. Another dish worth trying is the Gà Ngü Vį, honey grilled chicken. Delicious. This is a small and casual kind of place with really friendly staff, perfect for a weekday dinner out. Our bill came to £30 each including drinks and tip.


Vietnamese cuisine is amongst my favourites, so I am very lucky to have this restaurant moments from my flat. I've regularly eaten here and ordered takeaway and the food is always tasty, fresh and of a high standard. Particular menu highlights are the salt & pepper squid, spring rolls, any of the pho soups, and the claypot curry. Delicious. The wine is great too. Definitely a top pick for Holloway Road.


I discovered this place on The Holloway Road as I am always looking for somewhere to grab a bite before or after a movie, as the nearby Odeon is my local cinema.

This doesn't have the buzz of Vietnamese restaurants in Dalston and is rather simple inside, so I wouldn't say it's a place worth travelling out of your way to. However it's a great local and does simple, tasty authentic food well with a very reasonable price tag.

It's also one of the few restaurants of this type in the area, so if you are craving some hot pho or delicious summer rolls it's well worth checking out.

Good food and cheaper than soho, of course. The only short point is the restaurant is quite small...don't sit near toilet! :)

Well to day was the first day that i went there with my girlfriend. The food was so delicious and the service was amazing stuff, very friendly. I loved it.

Absolutely wonderful food. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. I would highly recommend Oa Com Tam to anyone
