Where: 207 Deptford High St, SE8 3NT
What Pho Hanoi lacks in online presence, it makes up for in great flavour, speedy delivery and welcoming staff. We recommend the lotus root salad with prawns or the grilled quail with pepper dipping sauce. If you’ve no cash on you upon ordering, worry not. The ATM just two doors down means you can pick some up on the way to pick up your order.

Pho Thuy Tay
Where: 899 Old Kent Rd, SE15 1NL
The best thing about this place? Bring your own booze! Although diners are currently resigned to takeaway, when open Pho Thuy Tay is the only Vietnamese takeaway in Deptford to welcome whatever bottles you want to bring in with you, which’ll make their must-try raw beef salad taste even better than it already does. With only five tables in total, the restaurant’s popularity greatly outweighs its size, so it’s a good thing delivery’s available through Deliveroo.

Eat Vietnam Bar B Grill
Where: 234 Evelyn St, SE8 5BZ
For a contemporary twist on authentic Vietnamese cuisine, Eat Vietnam Bar B Grill is a must. It prides itself on elevating classic Southeast Asian flavours with the use of only the finest ingredients, resulting in dishes that are a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds. But don’t take our word for it, check out the food on their Instagram account. Oh, and did we mention there’s a whole host of vegan options too?

Le Gia Restaurant
Where: 41-42 Deptford Broadway, SE8 4PH
In stark contrast to the tiny Pho Thuy Tay is Le Gia Restaurant. No shoulder-rubbing here, as it’s quite possibly the largest Vietnamese Takeaway Deptford has had the privilege to host. Paradoxically, it’s considered by locals as something of a hidden gem due to its hard-to-find entrance, but hungry diners mustn’t let that stand between them and the outstanding Beef soup with glass noodles.

Where: 8 Deptford Broadway, SE8 4PA
Don’t be fooled by Panda Panda’s unfussy exterior. This baguette and noodle bar serves up some seriously delicious authentic food which is perfectly for lunchtime. We recommend the prawn noodle salad and a Vietnamese ice coffee that’ll leave you energised for the rest of the workday.
