Mama Pho


Mama Pho is a small little Vietnamese restaurant based in Surrey Quays/Canada Water, which serves a good range of authentic Vietnamese food. This place is small with plan yellow walls and old fashioned wooden tables with benches. This place serves as both a takeaway and a restaurant but to get the most of the menu I would suggest eating in, as the take out dishes come slightly deconstructed.

 Although this place lacks atmosphere, the service is pleasant and efficient and the food is really satisfying – just what we want at the end of the day! We were seated after a ten minutes wait (this place gets quite busy), and we ordered the Vietnamese rolls and spring rolls for starter. The Vietnamese rolls are freshly made with thick juicy pieces of pork, chicken and prawns and lots of oriental vegetables bursting out. The spring rolls were piping hot, crispy and slightly spicy. Delicious.

 For main course we ordered the chicken curry which comes in a rich spicy tomato sauce served with potatoes and carrots. Its rich and very satisfying. We also ordered the pork bun cha gio nit thuong (vermicelli noodles with grilled lemongrass pork, spring rolls, salad and all) which was great value at £6. The dish was light, spicy and well cooked.

 Despite the simplicity of the décor and casual atmosphere, the value and quality of the food make this a great little place to come if in South East London when after quick, cheap, fresh and authentic food. As a result Sex Drugs and Bacon Rolls gives this place:
