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.

For more reasonable prices and better service, there are more choices on the same street.

I did not dine at the restaurant I found it filthy and dirty. The waitress had wiped the table with a damp cloth which was smelling badly.

Have been going to Hoxton Cay Tre for 9 years and the food is consistently fantastic- it's more expensive than some of the places on Kingsland Road but in terms of quality it's head and shoulder above any other Vietnamese!

Staff was rude, especially the asian manager lady with blond hair. I had arranged a reservation and was seated in the basement in an area which I didn't like. There was space elsewhere and it could've been arranged but funny enough it was given to someone who arrived after I did.

The grilled meat was excellent, however the vegetarian aubergine dish was far too spicy (and doesn't come with a spicy warning). There are too many seats in the downstairs section, and the seats themselves are extremely uncomfortable. Anyone over 5' 7" is going to struggle with their legs under the tables. It was extremely awkward getting in and out from the tables. Ventilation downstairs is poor. Couple next to us had their own grill, and were grilling meat (and burning it), stinking out the whole restaurant. The idea of grilling your own meat is nice, but make sure the fumes can escape!

Bland food and so so service. There's better Vietnamese cuisines in London and this one comes no where near the best. Sorry

Excellent food. Quick and efficient service. The bill was a little more than we expected for 2 people at £80 when we only had 2 beers!!!!

What a great restaurant. Very popular, incredibly busy but the speed of service, quality of food and atmosphere were spot on. We were in London for the weekend, we would definitely return.

Wendy the manager there was absolutely brilliant! She and the team helped cater the large group of people we brought in. Such a huge range of food and the service was fantastic.
