The Best Vietnamese Restaurants in Soho, London

Picture of Christina Dean
Updated: 22 July 2017
Steaming bowls of pho, fresh summer rolls and bun bo salads, densely packed banh mi…Soho is bursting with Vietnamese food and these are the best places to get it.

Viet Food

Restaurant, Vietnamese, $$$
Save to wishlist

The very cool industrial-chic Viet Food came to life when former Hakkasan chef Jeff Tan decided he wanted to celebrate the street food of Vietnam. Start off traditional with summer rolls and prawn crackers from the Mama’s Picks section of the menu before diving into the Vietnamese Modern Tapas. They even do a Vietnamese take on bento boxes for lunch.

1st dinner in London; Vietnamese food. Pho noodle and battered fried pork.

Cây Tre

Restaurant, Vietnamese, $$$
Save to wishlist

Sister to the Cây Tre on Old Street, the Soho site is clean and contemporary in its décor, allowing the punchy cookery to take centre stage. The food is best shared, not least because that way you can try a range of rolls, curries and josper dishes, but if you want a complete meal for one, larger bowls like crispy noodles with pork, prawn, squid, lobster, stir fried vegetables and broth will hit the spot.

Pho

Restaurant, Vietnamese, $$$
Save to wishlist

Though Pho is a chain, they haven’t turned all their sites into identikit restaurants. The Soho branch is housed in a listed building that was once home to a famous furniture designer in the late 18th century and the original brickwork and sash windows remain. The food is reliably consistent and there are plenty of different phos to choose from, including some hot and spicy specials native to Huế.

Banana Tree

Restaurant, Vietnamese, Thai, $$$
Save to wishlist

Banana Tree may be a pan-Asian restaurant that leans heavily towards Thai food but there are Vietnamese treats, including pho and bun bo salad, on offer. Whether you pop in for a quick lunch or pre-theatre dinner, finish off your meal with a traditional Vietnamese iced coffee.

Keu

Restaurant, Deli, Coffee Shop, Vietnamese
Save to wishlist

Keu is the fast food arm of the Vietnamese Kitchen group (who also own Cây Tre). The banh mi is the main draw of this deli – there is a classic version as well as other pork heavy combinations, a coconut chicken curry version and a veggie one with smoky aubergine and tofu. The summer rolls and Vietnamese dripped coffee are both worth an order too.

Pho & Bun

Restaurant, Vietnamese, $$$
Save to wishlist

It’s not hard to work out what you’re in for at Pho & Bun; the restaurant, from the Viet Eat team, focuses on pho and bao bun burgers. There is a varied selection of pho on offer, including spicy options and a ‘dry’ pho with salad replacing the broth. In terms of the steamed bao burgers, you can opt for classic Asian flavour combinations or go down the fusion route with the beef patty, pickle and smoky mayo bun. If neither of those options tickle your fancy then the rest of the menu features pretty classic Vietnamese fare.

Le Hanoi

Restaurant, Vietnamese, $$$
Save to wishlist

Le Hanoi is cheap and cheerful in the best way. The restaurant is bright and uplifting with lots of quirky lighting and a whacking great Vietnamese flag motif on one wall. The food is crowd-pleasing too, with 10 types of pho and sharing platter starters amongst the highlights, and all at good value too. The lunch menu comes in even better with one side and one main getting you change from a tenner.

Viet Pho

Restaurant, Vietnamese, $$$
Save to wishlist

Viet Pho is very much a no-frills kind of place – it’s quite small and the service is informal – but when you want a filling meal at a reasonable price then it certainly does the job. The menu isn’t massive but features all the Vietnamese classics you could want as well as some Thai dishes should you fancy something with a little more heat.
