This was my first taste of Vietnamese food and it certainly won't be my last. Food was divine, service was excellent and the setting lovely.

A good Vietnamese restaurant, with Saigon typical dishes. Food is delicious, service good, no luxury, simple. Price acceptable for London, which is always overrated. Time to downsize!

We have been there by accident because we didnt want to wait for 2 hours at another restaurant. The truth is: It is not pretty, it is not fancy and the service is not more than a sympathic "hands-on" - but the food is awesome...More

We went here for a quick dinner. We ordered the Bun bo hue, Pho and one of the large rice noodles bowls. The food was nice but nothing amazing. The Bun bo hue didn't come with any side salads and lemon like it usually does....More

Description
Cay Tre is Hoxton's favourite Vietnamese restaurant, small but perfectly formed. Here you'll find a fresh and creative approach to Vietnamese cuisine that we pride ourselves on. Cay Tre is bustling with life and full of the heady aromas of great Vietnamese cooking. We're passionate about food, ensuring what you get is an authentic taste of Vietnam using fresh, well sourced ingredients from the British Isles, wherever possible. We have a saying at Cay Tre, which is 'to make the simplest of dishes taste good you need the ingredients of time and passion' and you can be assured we have plenty of both. Every dish, from our street food snacks to our a la carte delicacies, is lovingly prepared with this saying in mind. Take our classic beef Pho for example, which takes over 18 hours to make! Likewise, our wine list is carefully selected by renowned wine writer Malcolm Gluck to match the aromatic dishes on the menu. What's more, if you're looking for food on the go, we offer a Vietnamese takeaway service and can deliver promptly to your home or office.
