The Vietnamese food may be better on Kingsland Road but this small chain (Clerkenwell, this one close to Oxford Circus and the Westfield shopping centre) delivers good value and (for me) more convenient locations. For less than £15 per head you can have a filling meal. There is not too much choice here (often a good sign!) the focus of course being on the pho noodle soups. I had spicy prawn for £8.45, and a fresh carrot apple and ginger fruit juice for £2.95.

The pho soup with good flat rice noodles had a rather less flavour filled than I remember from previous visits, slightly watery, but chili hot stock. There was a generous number of prawns. On the side there are fresh beansprouts, coriander, red chili, mint and lime to add. Adding all the chili it really is quite spicy hot which I like. The fruit juices are zingy tasty fresh. The place was full upstairs by 1pm (there is a basement too) and is clearly doing well. There is quite loud piped music but this is no booking fast food. The service is casual, friendly but efficient.
