SquareMeal Review of
Tay Do Cafe
Tay Do Café is one of the old guard of Kingsland Road Vietnamese restaurants. It hasn’t brought in the consultants or had a fancy-schmancy makeover; it has simply carried on offering a tried &
tested package of cheap nosh, dodgy interior & seemingly uninterested, sometimes tetchy, staff. The menu is a lengthy read – hitting well over 200 dishes, running from dreary Chinese
takeaway-style standards to more distinctive fresh herb & pork skin rolls; crunchy deep-fried tilapia with salt, lemongrass & chilli; & sour soup with Mekong catfish. The venue is
unlicensed & corkage is free, so bills, already low, stay low.
