If you’re looking for summer rolls or a satisfying bowl of pho in central London, the Soho branch of Cây Tre should be your go-to. The restaurant serves a greatest hits of Vietnamese dishes in a sleek-looking Soho space that’s good for casual dinners and small groups. The food’s good; the ox cheek pho is particularly good when it’s on, and the spring roll noodle salad is a nice way to mix things up. While it takes bookings, it’s also a handy (and inexpensive) backup if you need a last minute fix.
