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.
Extremely friendly and efficient staff
Biggest surprise - the waiter’s fantastic voice as he sang happy birthday to Oscar
Great Vietnamese restaurant, food and is always well prepared, fresh and so good! Lovely hustle and bustle atmosphere. Booking recommended.
This is one of my favourite places! The food is always superb, the service is very quick and so warm and friendly. A lovely, simple atmosphere for enjoying a delicious and exotic lunch. I always leave with a smile, that seems to last!
Went upon recommendation of a friend. Fantastic selection of food and drink. The vegetarian platter was a particular favourite!
Tasty food, reasonably priced and quick friendly service!
We enjoyed all food! Very tasty!
Allergens are not clearly marked in the menu. You have to consult a separate allergen table, which is very inconvenient to use, and only covers main courses (not the starters). Waiting staff does not know allergen information off-hand. Service is even more unfriendly and inattentive than is common in the UK (which is already quite a low standard): we got one dish wrong, another dish was ordered but never delivered, both ended up on the bill. This was a good place a couple of years ago, but now there are much better options.
Delicious and excellent in every way! Remains to be my favourite Vietnamese restaurant in London and my friends loved it, being their first introduction to Cay Tre.
Went for the easter set menu with unlimited prosecco for 45 mins. Service was very friendly, food excellent and a great selection for the offer we had. Highly recommended - left feeing very happy and very full
Downstairs is absolutely freezing! Lucky the food is so good. A little less celebrious than your Soho branch, think the Old Street branch could be improved in look and decor.
Food was okay but quite a basic venue and service wasn't great
Food was incredible and their service was very warm and welcoming. We especially appreciated their patience with us. Definately visiting again!
Very poor waiter service on the basement floor. Included us being put on a poor table when another was available. We were told it was for 4 only. 10 minutes later a couple were seated. Our waiter seemed to find serving us complicated and we often had to ask for help from another waiter.
This is a great place but there are too many tables downstairs, it was so cramped! Other than that, food was great, tasty and fresh tasting, would come again for sure.
This is a great Vietnamese restaurant. Location great and food amazing. Check out the mackerel baked in banana leaf... superb!
Your mackerel is to die for
Delicious fresh food served by a lovely waitress. Definitely would come again. Best Vietnamese restaurant I’ve been to in Shoreditch
Great fresh food, friendly service.
Great service from friendly and efficient staff. Buzzy, noisy place. Ended up quite pricey.
This is my favourite Vietnamese restaurant in London, a repeat customer who has been going for years...especially after my visit to Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam.
The downstairs space was too tight, I had to keep moving my chair to let people through, not ideal being 8 months pregnant!
Great authentic Vietnamese food.
Bad service, cramped seating, food was average. Overall not a great experience.
