Neighbourhood hot spot serving pan-Asian street food.
The student vibe of Marchmont is apparent in this buzzy local hot-spot for pan-Asian street food, as evidenced by the frequent comings and goings for a quick bite or to collect takeaway. The menu is casual, focusing predominantly on noodles, rice, soups and rolls, with Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches, stuffed with char siu, katsu chicken or crispy tofu, whizzing out of the door. Pho ga, the subtle chicken and lemongrass broth laden with noodles, is fine Vietnamese comfort food while tender chicken gyoza are hot and pleasing. The savoury pork, beef and lemongrass meatballs will leave you wanting to order them again and again. Pad Thai, however, is a little dry and could do with a few more prawns. Desserts are limited but the banana and peanut butter ice-cream cake will suit those craving a sweet ending to the meal.
