Square Meal Review of Cay Tre ?

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.

    SilverSpoon London :: Cay Tre - A Vietnamese feast

    We'd had a really lovely lunch last Saturday at 10 Greek Street so I suggested heading down to Soho again for our midday meal. Cay Tre, a restaurant serving authentic Vietnamese food, was the restaurant of choice. The interior is casual and canteen-like. First up a bit of theatre. We ordered the La Vong grilled monkfish with galangal, tumeric and dill...

    The Swindian :: Restaurant review: Cay Tre

    I visited Cay Tre upon a friend’s recommendation when I had only been in London for about a month. It was only the second time I had been to Soho, but I was already in love with all the eateries we passed along the way, including Yalla Yalla, which we had discovered a couple of weeks earlier (review to follow). As we walked into the restaurant, we were greeted by a sumptuous whiff of Vietnamese food...
