Place to be for pho or rice bowls - Edit

We stopped by to try the pho and ordered a rice bowl as well to share. They were both surprisingly savoury. Bonus: across the street you can go for a vegan dessert: ice cream and/or waffles. Would recommend!

A great surprise - Edit

Me and my partner ended in that place one evening when trying to go to Mildreds but found it was closed, and am happy we did! It took some (many) questions to figure out what is what and what we can have, but ended up having a great varied meal and even shared a dessert with vegan ice cream! Our waitress was very accommodating and handled the increasing crowd very well too. Very pleasant experience.

Pros: great food, great service, reasonably priced

Was ok but wouldn't go again - Edit

the starter was pretty nice. i had raw veg spring rolls.

the main however i didn't enjoy.

it was tofu and mushroom on top of noodles and came with salad in a bowl and just resulted in a luke warm indifferent mush.

To be fair some one else had the same and thought it was ok so maybe i was unlucky

i'd prefer it if the setting had a touch more light...

Pros: raw spring rolls were nice, friendly and helpful

Cons: didn't like the main!

We like Pho, even if the options are limited for vegans but the few dishes we order, we really like. We often visit the restaurants in Balham and Clapham Junction but as we were in town with friends we visited Wardour Street. There were 7 of us altogether but unfortunately we had to wait an hour between our starter and main. In fairness they did acknowledge their poor service (they'd forgotten our order) and reduced our bill. Food was very good as usual, but given the other vegan choices locally we would only visit again if we had to

helpful staff and tasty food - Edit

Although the menu doesn't state vegetarian or vegan as soon as I told my server she was very helpful pointing out my options. Of which there where 3 or 4. I had a spicy tofu and mushroom pho which was super yummy. Most dishes had a tofu or vegetable option.

Pros: helpful staff, multiple options

Cons: no labelling on menu

Rare honesty and accommodation about ingredients - Edit

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).

Pros: veg-friendly, not too expensive

Cons: could use more vegetable
