We visited Thanh Binh on a freezing evening and had a lovely experience! The staff were polite and efficient, the menu was extensive anf everyone enjoyed the dishes they chose. Does not serve alcohol, which wasn't an issue for us.

Small Vietnamese restaurant. No liqueur licence so you can take your own alcohol and pay £2 corkage per person if you choose. Just had a main course which all seem to come with either rice or noodles. There were two of us and we had a main course each and some mixed vegetables. The food was very tasty and enough... More

I was there last night and had an excellent meal, both starter and mains: delicate, rich, spiced fish main (no. 23) was one of the best dishes I've tasted in Cambridge. Just remember to bring your own drink as the restaurant is not licensed. Lawrence H.

I can't quite believe that nobody has ever recommended this place to me before. The food was great - a delicious blend of spices but not overly so. The prices were fair, not cheap but certainly not expensive. The staff were welcoming and, best of all, it's a BYO wine. We ate downstairs and I think next time I will... More

My husband and I were visiting Cambridge for the weekend and so went to Thanh Binh on a Saturday evening as we love Vietnamese food and don't have any restaurants near us at home. The restaurant is small and doesn't serve alcohol but you can bring your own and we were advised of this when we booked which was helpful.... More

A very busy road, but you don't notice any noice even behind the window. Sometimes, buspassengers stare at your table, but the next time you' re the buspassenger,., The very friendly waitress is a good seller, before you know what happens, you' ve ordered some starters you didn' t plan to order. But delicious, well presented, main course also delicious.... More

I like Vietnamese food and have eaten quite a lot of it mostly in London. This restaurant would score poorly against the best I have tried but the prices would be up with the pack (and I assume they do not have London type overheads). the service is stretched when the restaurant is full which it was when we were...

The food was fairly average but it was nice to be able to take our own wine. I don't think we will be returning though as we were not that impressed on this occasion.
