86 St John Street, Clerkenwell, London EC1M 4EH
“Pho opened in Clerkenwell in June 2005 as London's first Vietnamese street food restaurant. We're small, informal and serve great value, deliciously healthy and authentically prepared Vietnamese food. At Pho we keep it simple. The short menu means...” more...

For the past 18 months, we've been coming here 1-2x per week. Lovely little place, really friendly. Great food. Try the pork kho - caramelised pork with duck egg. Reallllly good. The usual suspects, pho/summer rolls etc are all great and they have a decent selection of vietnamese beers too. Winner.
Chanced upon this restaurant walking through fulham.
We ordered fried tilapia fish with fish sauce and mango, along with rice and morning glory vegetables.
The ingredients seemed to be low quality and this showed in the dishes. The meagre amount of white fish that we could find on the tilapia was grilled into oblivion, the morning glory was bland and lacking flavour, and even the egg fried rice was overdone
I’ve had exactly the same meal in many other Vietnamese restaurants and they were all done so much better than this.
We came out with a bill that twice as much as the food should be worth, and hungry bellies filled with dissatisfation.
Also: The mens toilets had no working tap and a note simply said to use the one inside the ladies. Not very hygeinic at all.
Loved how fresh the food was. We had the summer rolls, pho & bun xa which were all great, altough the bun xa serving was rather small compared to the portions you get on East End’s Kingsland Road.
Service was a little rude on the phone and as well as in the restaurant plus they add an almost 12% service charge to the bill which I think is a bit steep for a little neighbourhood eatery like this. But that said, the prices are reasonable.
Try if if you’re in the area but don’t travel to Fulham for it.
The problem with West London is there are no authentic Vietnamese restaurants. The few there are, are somewhat pricey and aimed at the candle lit dinner crowd. I went to one and the waiter offered me "Steamboat" when everyone knows that for authentic "steamboat" you need to order it a day in advance.
So step forward Me Me as a refreshing alternative to these West London establiishments: delicious food, served fast and reasonably priced. I work locally and come here because i can order, eat and be out easily in half an hour. And every time, i am consistently impressed by the quality of the food. If what you want is higly flavoured food by cooks who know their stocks, then come here.
PS The Steamboat at Me Me has to be ordered in adavance and is outstanding
The earlier reviewer, Jiak, must have had a bad day or been on a (very unusal) bad day in the kitchen. I'm a foodie, love cooking and love vietnamese food. Have travelled in vietnam twice, and often trapse across london to Kingsland Road to eat at the Vietnamese restaurants there. The owner/head chef at Me Me use to run the kitchens in my favourtie Vietnamese restaurant in Kingsland road and he is passionate (to the point of perfection) about food and ingredients.
I eat at Me Me 2-3 times/ week for the last 18 months or so. The food is freshly prepared, clean tasting and delicious. No short cuts here. The stock for the Pho's is made from scratch daily, all herbs are deliciously green, fresh and authentic (not just lazy old supermarket coriander. Thai parsely anyone?). All restaurants have good moments and bad moments. I urge the 1 star reviewer,Jiak, to try Me Me again and she won't be disappointed.
To anyone else who's considering it - you will not be disappointed as long as you're there for the food. The surroundings don't pretend to be anything other than a clean simple restaurant. The food is delicious and the owners are very friendly and fun.

ddraymond, 14 July 2012:
Was looking for Vietnamese food in the area and stumbled upon this restaurant. My husband and I decided to give it a try -- ordered the beef noodles (pho) and vermicelli rice noodle salad (bun). Oh boy, when the food arrived we almost cried. We have eaten at other Vietnamese restaurants and know what Vietnamese food is. The beef noodle was tasteless and could only find two slices of beef in the noodle; whilst the vermicelli rice noodle salad was way too dry.
As this is the only Vietnamese restaurant in the area, I guess without competition, that explains the standard of food that they serve and the reason whey they are still standing in the area. If you have no choice, eat at this restaurant. Otherwise flee and go somewhere else.
