Tucked into the overhang of a renovated archway, Banh Bao Brothers delivers an authentic Vietnamese restaurant experience in modern digs. Share a plate, have a laugh, and allow your taste buds to transport you to another side of the world.

The heart of Vietnam beats stronger than ever in Banh Bao Brothers as traditional food intertwines with modern appeal. More than just a Pho Joint, our restaurant and bar begins a new age of authentic Vietnamese cuisine in the United Kingdom. Well-composed plates brimming with style make-up every bite as friends debate which item to dive into next.

The Leake Street Arches serve as home to urban art, dining and entertainment. Repurposed brick-laden archways off historic streets add charm and function to the entire neighbourhood.

The first restaurant to open in the tunnel, Banh Bao Brothers continues to lead a culinary rebirth in a legendary spot.

The welcoming neon hue of the “Jade Dragon Bar” is irresistible to a friendly clientele. A Vietnamese-inspired cocktail menu puts a modern spin upon old world charm. Punchy flavours and complex layers create a potent mix that is sure to make a splash.

Brunch and dinner menus feature a range of shared plates alongside larger servings for the Hangry. bao combinations are available throughout the day.

I heard about it but i had no idea i would be entering a tunnel cover wall to wall in beautiful graffitis.. And then surprisingly enough you find yourself outside the restaurant with it’s own different identity and delicious food! I would definitely be coming back with more friends.!

Hardly any ingredients in the food, and flavour was pretty average compared to other Vietnamese we've had. Also found a strand of hair in one of the dishes. We did let the waitress know and all that she said was ' we will tell the kitchen so it doesn't happen again' - not good enough.

Disappointed with the food. The spring rolls and the sticky wings were really good. But the Noodles and Pho were not very nice. Overpriced for the quality.

Very aesthetic and would recommend because of this. A little pricey though. Perhaps make buns bigger?

Quick service, cool atmosphere. When we ordered they ran out of 3 mains. I think menu had 7 in total. Bit annoying.

The food here is great - very authentic & very tasty. The space is really interesting too, underneath a railway arch - it's perfect for large groups. My only criticism is that the portion sizes are very small for the price. I booked for 6 people & we spent about £10 each. However the boys had to buy something else on the way back to the office as they were still hungry. I think the very small 'combo' options should be cheaper so you can have both a main and a combo option for £15 which I think would be a good amount of food.

Amazing food, convenient location! Service was good, however one thing that was a little annoying were the staff who hovered over you waiting to take plates even when there was food on there, and so asking 'Are you finished with this' resulting in us having to scoff the food down so they can take the plates. It's not as though they had a time limit on the table. Being rushed to eat is not an enjoyable thing.

I visited the Banh Bao Brothers restaurant on my birthday yesterday evening. It was quite quiet but this was to be expected as it was a Wednesday evening. This meant however, the staff were super attentive and were happy to answer any questions myself & my guests had. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food & cocktails were amazing. The only disappointment was that there is currently no dessert menu but we were told this is coming soon. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you for making my birthday special.
