Was looking fro somewhere for a quick lunch before a court ordeal nearby & ended up in Vy Nam. Strange & rather unpleasant smell on entering but don't let that put you off. I have been back since and it was the same. Basic tables & decor; service OK first visit, very good 2nd time round. Menu - extensive, reasonably... More

Have been visiting Vy Nam since it opened - food is always fantastic and staff are always friendly. The premises are small and the restaurant can be very busy - the staff can be rushed off their feet but are always smiling. Never had a bad meal here.

Some years ago I loved this place..even organised meetings in their downstairs room and colleagues came because the food was genuine Vietnamese and extremely well cooked. No more! Was invited and 4 of us went for dinner.With 1 exception the staff seemed not to understand English. We ordered 2 Banh Xeo..only one arrived and without the herbs that go with... More

We've been looking at this place for a while now and decided to have dinner there tonight. We ordered drinks, spring rolls, 2 vegetarian dishes and a meat one and asked for it to be without chilis. The vegetarian dishes were great, but... the meat one had a bunch of chilis in it. When I pointed out to the waiter... More

As a long time booster of this place, one was horrified to be treated so poorly. We arrived without having made a reservation as it was getting late. The place was beginning to show signs of several tables getting ready to leave and there was one, completely unoccupied table available, just waiting to be cleared and cleaned. Granted this was...

Vy Nam offers an extensive menu of authentic Vietnamese cooking - noodle dishes, rice dishes, curries, and it also offers many tempting options if you are veggie. The food was absolutely delicious. It's licensed with a nice selection of alcoholic drinks. Went for dinner mid-week without a reservation and didn't have to wait for a table, but it was busy,... More

Went to Vynam for lunch with some friends, and it was fine, but not out of this world. We're all vegetarian and as such, all had Tofu based dishes. My two mates had it with black bean sauce and rice and I had a Pho. Theirs' looked really good, and well presented, and they both cleaned their plates. The food... More

We tried the pappaya salad and rare beef salad followed by a seafood noodle dish and what was supposed to be a duck curry with lemongrass and chillies. Unfortunately, this arrived as a mixed seafood curry so it had to go back and be replaced - which was achieved with minimum of fuss and good grace. The food was good... More
