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.

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

I booked a table for 2pm on 26th December for my mother and I and I received two confirmation emails. Yet when we got there the restaurant was closed. I emailed to ask for an explanation. Not only have I not had a reply, they have had the cheek to ask me for feedback on my meal!!! It's a shame as this has been one of my favourite restaurants for years, service has really gone down hill in the last couple of years though.

Used to be a very good Vietnamese restaurant but not anymore. Mediocre starters and mains, OKish service but too expensive for what it offers.

The food is always absolutely brilliant here. I have been put off making big group bookings though by the demand for a deposit, which is awkward when it is your own birthday and you don't want to go around collecting £5 off people who have bought you a present, but neither do you want to get landed paying the whole £100 yourself either.
