Staff at this Vietnamese canteen are permanently upbeat and helpful, despite the fierce demands of a narrow, raucous, sparingly decorated dining room. Cay Tre is deservedly popular with young Londoners and savvy tourists, who come here for its chirpy atmosphere and a plethora of genuine flavour-packed dishes at wallet-friendly prices. The extensive menu showcases the breadth of Vietnamese cuisine – authentic, ‘perfectly barbecued’ ribs, ‘beautifully tender’ lamb-neck curry with okra and aubergine, and rich, dark ox-cheek ‘pot au feu’ sit alongside more familiar staples including herb-laden noodle soups (pho), delicate summer rolls and braised catfish. To drink, try fun cocktails such as the shareable Vietnamese party punch. Tempting set menus (£22 for three courses) and takeaways increase Cay Tre’s appeal.
