Eat at the Tay Do Cafe

Every community from world geography seems to have its own area of London, and Kingsland Road in East London is the heart of the Vietnamese Quarter. The area was the central focus for the several thousand Vietnamese people who sought refuge in London in 1979 following the Vietnam war. A fitting dinner venue, then, to begin Refugee Week.

Tay Do Cafe, at the Southern end of Kingsland Road, is often cited by visitors as one of the more reasonable value venues on offer, and is a regular feature in Time Out's "Cheap Eats". Whilst the decor is very canteen-like, it's BYO, and the food is pretty good. It's one of those occasions when "eat out for under £10" is actually true.

For more information, see the restaurant's page on the Time Out website at http://www.timeout.com/london/restaurants/reviews/13848.html.
