Orient Gardens - Three and a half chilli rated
Three and a half chilli rated
279 Mare St, Hackney, London, E8 3QE.
We are always a bit worried about Hybrid Vietnamese/Chinese restaurants, but this place on Mare street was a good solid bowl, and a welcome relief after our trip to Cambridge the night before.
Good for: Basic, but solid performer.
Bad for: No herbs, beansprouts or chilli sauce. Slightly dodgy beef.
