Green Papaya Vietnamese Restaurant
Cheap, good Vietnamese food to be found at this restaurant on the Kingsland Road. This is just one of a number of Vietnamese restaurants (Mien Tay, Tay Do, BunBunBun, Hanoi Cafe) on this stretch of the Kingsland Road and all of them are good quality.
After the original Mare Street branch gained an almost cult-like local following, Green Papaya branched out to Hoxton – albeit bordering Shoreditch – where it continues to serve up superb Vietnamese dishes with a hint of Chinese influence. It’s cheap-ish and cheerful, but still cool enough to…
Casual, vibrant cafe-diner offering stylishly presented, exotic, North Vietnamese cuisine.
“Cute (and tiny) independent coffee shop with some of the best coffee in London.”
“Because it's the best place to get a feel for Hackney's Cultural mix. And for the Ararat Bakery flatbread And the Chinese man who offers TCM herbs and chair massages at very reasonable cost And the essential Oils and soaps And the Incense Man And fresh fish And every vegetable you can imagine And very cheap clothes and household goods”
“Where else can you buy a new cover for your phone AND artisan bread, antipasti, fresh fruit and vegetables, meats and cooked street food?”
“'Our local'. Unassuming from the outside, but serves the most deliciously authentic pizzas and pastas at a very affordable price!”
“Extra fare on top of your Oyster card per trip but it's worth trying if the weather is nice and you are keen on taking photos. It will take you all the way to Tower bridge and London Eye.”
