About Cay Tre Old Street

Cây 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. Cây 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 Cây 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.

Atmosphere only dropped a star due to social distancing restrictions...we had to sit by a main road

Excellent service and delicious food. Usually go for pho but decided to have the aubergine, okra and tofu curry - really flavourful. Will be back again!

The food at Cay Tre is incredible and i highly recommend it! However, i am a vegan and i was disappointed to find out that they do not offer Vegetarian or vegan Phu. I was surpsied as there are so many vegans in London and i love Phu so i would've loved a plant-based option. That being said there were other incredibly delicious vegan options on the menu. I had vegan fried noodles with tofu and they were amazing!

The staff were absolutely lovely, and made the birthday meal really special. They went above and beyond to provide a cake and candle for my friend to blow out - we'll definitely be back!

We enjoyed the food very much. It was the first time we have tried the braised catfish which was delightful. Great service and we look forward to coming back!

It's been my favourite Vietnamese restaurant in the area for over 10 years now, but somehow the food seems to have got even better since lockdown? Incredible, I'll be back soon.

Friendly and welcoming. Good value for money. Tasty food. Stars are lost because of the service. We queried the arrival of one of the meals and we were told that they had forgotten it. By the time it came, everyone else had finished. They only offered 50% discount on that dish even thought our whole experience had been affected. Staff also took it upon themselves to make sure they debited all their discretionary service charge from our card even thought we instructed them otherwise. Very cheeky! 😫

Never going back here. Wouldn’t recommend going here. This was probably the worst Vietnamese food I have ever had. I had dumplings as starters with a filling that wasn’t identifiable as it was completely burnt and black. It should have had prawn and pork but tasted like burned pork skin. I didn’t eat them. The pho came with over cooked noodles and meat that looked like pork and had lots of fat on the edges. Never have I ever seen or eaten a pho as bad as this. I complaint to the waitress but only thing she was that said I could write a review on google and that she will let the kitchen know.

Many items on the menu and very nice food. The memory of the lady that took our order is already reason enough to come here again. She memorised everything 6 of us ordered! Despite them being very busy they served us very quickly too. Good value for money experience. The only negative thing i can mention is - this place needs some renovation urgently
