Cay Tre Soho

Vietnamese | Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden

Cay Tre in Shoreditch/ Hoxton is felt by many, including Mark Hix, to be the very best Vietnamese restaurant in town. Also owners of the successful Viet Grill, they've been expanding lately - first with the recent Keu, and now with a flagship restaurant right in the centre of Soho. Expect a restaurant with a bright look, to challenge the vogue that contemporary Asian restaurants must be dark and moody, and more of a small-plates approach than the original Cay Tre offered.

"Many dishes were a surprise, such as a salad of raw green mango with rarely seen chewy sundried squid, roasted peanut and Vietnamese herbs; the mix of texture and flavour rang true to its origins as street food." READ REVIEW
