About Banh Bao Brothers

The spirit of Vietnam is alive and well in this chilled-out spot just beneath Waterloo Station. 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. Where creativity and community collide, the growing area provides a quintessential urban experience. 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.

Went with 2 friends after work, all had a really good meal and a couple of drinks. Didn't break the bank at all.

I had been looking forward to this visit, because I started following you on Instagram. The first time I came, I was told you weren’t opening because you had a staff party the night before. This time I booked. I had to call back a day later to change my booking by 1/2 an hour. No name was asked for, even though I offered it. I was told he could see on the system who I was. When I arrived there was no record of this. We were met by a lovely host who remained calm and gracious throughout our meal. There were only 4 tables whilst we dined. There was no banh min, no chicken broth, both the items I had ordered. He handled it very well. I just made different choices. As a chef, i always just want to enjoy the experience, not complain. It’s a pity it was so empty. I look forward to maybe trying on a different day to see if it any better. We work close by.

Best. Ever. I’m a Londoner, and fairly sceptical in general, but this place is an absolute gem!

Food was amazing!! However service was the complete opposite. We had to wave down staff to take our order after sitting there for awhile, even without a drink, so when they finally came to take our order we ordered drinks and food at the same time. I asked for water for the second time and when the girl came back she said I will just give you the bottle so you don't have to keep asking... We finished our cocktails before our food had arrived but no one was around to take our second drinks order, so we gave up. Also before we ordered one of the members in our party, asked if there were any side dishes of vegetables the waitress said yes.... and when it came out it was a bowl of lettuce so we sent that back to the kitchen! Overall, loved the food and cocktails but I probably won't be back until their service has been sorted out.... was the service we had hoped for, for my sisters birthday and we definitely didn't pay the service charge!

I think they were short staffed on the day, so while the staff was great, they had a lot to do...

Great food. Decent prices. Venue was incredible. Would love to have a party in it. Atmosphere was non existent for a Friday night. Staff were ok but a little distracted. Would probably not visit again.

I will definitely come back as my overall experience was great. Loved the trees and the decor! We booked this lunch for 1.15, so I appreciate it was quite a quiet time for you guys, maybe some music could compensate for the emptiness of the restaurant. The server wasn't too engaging and it felt like we didn't come in the right time for her or kitchen. She mentioned that there is only one portion of veggie rolls left, and after us debating who is going to get them she said that she will ask if the chef can make more. I guess if this was only the matter of cooking them, this shouldn't have been mentioned unless they were out of stock.
