Pho, Wesfield

I had various birthday presents to buy and the weekend big shop to do so we thought we would take advantage of the 2 hours free parking at the Westfield. As we arrived just after the lunchtime rush we thought we would grab a bite to eat. My wife loves the Pho up in Clerkenwell so I was keen to give the one in Westfield a go.

The fact it had a bustling open kitchen and a long queue was a good sign. We both went for the lemongrass chicken bun which was ready about 10 minutes after ordering. They signal your order is ready with little pagers. I thought it was very nice but not a great deal different to what you get at Wagamama. I might try the soups next time which looked very nice. The foodcourt in the Westfield is pretty comfortable but a bit too busy to be a relaxing spot to eat.

My lovely wife got me lunch but it only came two £17 for the two bun's with a beer and lemonade which was good value for money. I would go again if I was shopping but I don't see the foodcourt itself as a dining destination.

Mr Kong, Chinatown, an unconvincing culinary destination

Patara, Oxford Circus, good for a business lunch
