Respond to Review of Pho - Wardour St
Review: This place has many virtues. First, they are very explicitly veg-friendly (even labeling fish sauce and offering alternatives, which is virtually unheard of at East Asian places). Second, the building is lovely and the ambiance wonderful. Set against this, there are a few negatives. First, the food wasn't terribly flavorful: the pho came with fresh herbs that were actually fresh, so the broth had a lovely delicacy to it, but the rest was not delicate so much as bland. Second, there was little by way of actual vegetable, just lots of noodle. Third, the server was extremely friendly and also extremely forgetful. For people who don't like meaty, beefy broths, the broth here was a real virtue. That alone can put it well over threshold for some. If that's not enough of a draw, the rest makes it ho-hum (especially in London, which has so much else to offer).
