I can't quite believe that nobody has ever recommended this place to me before. The food was great - a delicious blend of spices but not overly so. The prices were fair, not cheap but certainly not expensive. The staff were welcoming and, best of all, it's a BYO wine. We ate downstairs and I think next time I will... More

My husband and I were visiting Cambridge for the weekend and so went to Thanh Binh on a Saturday evening as we love Vietnamese food and don't have any restaurants near us at home. The restaurant is small and doesn't serve alcohol but you can bring your own and we were advised of this when we booked which was helpful.... More

A very busy road, but you don't notice any noice even behind the window. Sometimes, buspassengers stare at your table, but the next time you' re the buspassenger,., The very friendly waitress is a good seller, before you know what happens, you' ve ordered some starters you didn' t plan to order. But delicious, well presented, main course also delicious.... More

I like Vietnamese food and have eaten quite a lot of it mostly in London. This restaurant would score poorly against the best I have tried but the prices would be up with the pack (and I assume they do not have London type overheads). the service is stretched when the restaurant is full which it was when we were...

The food was fairly average but it was nice to be able to take our own wine. I don't think we will be returning though as we were not that impressed on this occasion.

Small and friendly. Also unlicenced with small corkage charge. Food tasty and well presented. Friend who'd been to Vietnam said it was good. Nice evening.

I went with great enthusiasm to Thanh Binh, since I'd swallowed the hype about its being a family run place, and wanted to avoid restaurants that were part of chains. Alas, chains at least come with minimal guarantees and safeguards, whereas in this case the family label meant that the server thought she could get away with anything. I was... More

I have just returned from a holiday in Vietnam and the food I had yesterday was better than anything I had on holiday. Starter number 1 followed by 18 Yum. Tasty and filling.

I have never been to Vietnam nor eaten Vietmanise food before, but I know good, tasty food with fresh ingredients when I taste it. The food was really good and the staff friendly. They do not have a licence to sell alcohol, but I liked this approach as we could bring our own drinks. The staff were very good at... More
