It’s all change for House of Ho, with the Soho original rebranded ‘Ho Modern Vietnamese’ and this new branch now the flagship. The higgledy-piggledy townhouse still has its warren of rooms, but thankfully the chintz has been replaced by green-leather banquettes and distressed mirrors. The draw, however, is chef-director Ian Pengelley’s fabulous pan-Asian food. The menu is split into snack-like starters, small dishes, rolls and salads, signature dishes and ‘happy endings’. Soft-shell crabs arrive in crisp batter, presented in a gigantic bowl of chillis and accompanied by delicious Japanese mayonnaise. Next, Pengelley’s crispy duck, watermelon and cashew salad is unmissable, with its chewy and crisp hoisin-soaked meat and aromatic herbs. Main-course sea bass comes wrapped in a banana leaf that’s unfurled to release a perfectly cooked fillet doused in smoky-sweet fermented-plum sauce. Upstairs, the bar has interesting cocktails, but thumping house music. We’d recommend staying at your table and relishing the food.

As my quest to find Fitzrovia’s Favourites continues, I was delighted to find the rebranded House of Ho situated where Percy and Charlotte Street meet. The new flagship restaurant for Vietnamese cuisine, opened in December 2015 attracting plenty of critics to the four storey townhouse where head chef, Ian Pengelly, brings contemporary flavours to authentic plates.The pan-Asian menu offers starters, small dishes, rolls & salads, dumplings, signature dishes, sides and happy endings (aka desserts). We kicked things off by ordered still and sparkling water, Vietnamese crackers & fresh salsa and Edamame with...

House of Ho has an elegant new home in Fitzrovia, at the beginning of Charlotte Street. Taking over the space that was once home to Bambou the Vietnamese restaurant. This townhouse has been given a revamp with a colonial style casual dining area on the ground floor, an elegant bar space on the top floor and several stylish private dining rooms in between.The kitchen is now headed up by Ian Pengelly who has helmed several other Asian fusion restaurants around town. The menu is mainly Vietnamese influence with touches of other South East Asian cultures interspersed.
