Time Out says
This Chapel Market restaurant is the first premises proper from Thuy Pham-Kelly – the chef behind the wildly successful Vietnamese supper club, Thuy's Viet Kitchen. It proved such a success it was booked up for six months at a time.
The permanent spot is thankfully a little easier to get into, though there's the same focus on dishes paying homage to Pham-Kelly's childhood. Options range from beef wrapped in perilla leaf and lemongrass chicken wings to a coconut poussin curry, beef pho and banh xeo – crispy pancakes here served with belly pork and prawn, tofu and veg or lemongrass chicken.
And if you felt like you missed out on the supper club? They still run it on a monthly basis, using it as a place to test new dishes.

We went there for the first time last Sunday. Great atmosphere, really nice staff, but the highlight is the food.
I'll definitely be back! Give it a try
Excellent food, atmosphere, staff and value. Had the pork spring rolls for starters, crispy yellow pancake which was healthy yet delicious. My friend had beef pho which had really fresh meat and they said tasted wonderful. Had a coconut sherbet mocktail which was amazing. Attentive and friendly staff who do not rush you and who were able to answer questions about particular dishes in detail. The best experience of Vietnamese food I have ever had. Definitely going back :)
Amazingly fresh food served with a smile. And don't miss Thuy's lunch stall on Chapel Market for Vietnamese baquettes, 'Scotch' eggs, and salads.
We finally managed to get a table during the soft launch. First step in the restaurant, feel very good, nice atmosphere, ambience, music and chandelier decoration. Warm welcome from the English gentlemen, we sat down and looked into the menu. We ordered Summer roll, spring roll, salad, pancake, Pho and Vermicelli noodle. I assume they still haven't got into routine of preparing food, therefore they all came in different times, one main course arrived before starters...we were fine with that. Looking at the Summer roll and spring rolls beautifully decorated, i could not wait to tuck in, the summer rolls are fresh but lacking flavours, and served with mixed fish sauce was a real disappointment, supposed to be Hoisin dipping sauce, and the fish sauce was very blank. Then came the spring roll, this is not Vietnamese, wrapped in Chinese pastry roll, another disappointment, the filling lacking sweetness and tardiness, blank for me. Vermicelli noodle bowl was generous but the pork and fish sauce were let down!
All in all, without discount, it s expensive and the food isn't for a Vietnamese taste, very Westernised in my opinion !!!
