We had a great meal here, very affordable, and quick service. I had the Bahn Mi and it was delicious, and my husband got the special pho and I ate half of his too because it was so good.

Food was okay, not great, but not bad either... what was annoying was the menu, which I personally found pretty messy and confusing... pictures did not really show food, and the Vietnamese names are probably indistinguishable and meaningless for most. Sorry to say, but with...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a

time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
