Sen Cafe could be defined as being a little bit like the now legendary Big Bao's little brother, as both venues were born from the same brains. In many ways, though, Sen is more the big brother, since it takes all of the very best bits of Big Bao's offering, and adds in even more tasty options to the menu.
If you've been to Big Bao before, you'll be familiar with their delicious Banh Mi baguette sandwiches, packed with fresh and crispy fillings. You may have also tried the tasty jasmine rice boxes with toppings that are simply mouth-watering, and the cracking range of bubble tea options that, let's be honest, we can never say no to. The good news is, there are all these and even more yummy additions to the menu up for grabs at Sen, including steamy bowls of Pho - both meaty and veggie, and new delicious vegan options!
What's our favourite? That's a tough one! If we had to only pick one for the rest of our lives, we'd probably opt for the Curry rice with their "Mum's home style chicken": a seriously delish home-style marinated grilled chicken with lemongrass, shallot and their very special Big Bao sauce.
Had a nice curry rice which was super delicious and I also enjoyed the hot jasmine tea that came with my order! Definitely will visit again!
Chicken banh mi is cheap, filling and delicious, perfect for lunch!
I really like the centrality of the cafe. It was very quiet when I went in but the lady serving me was lovely. Definitely want to try more of their food! Very reasonable prices too!
This is one of the better Vietnamese restaurants in Bristol. The food is good and reasonably priced. The beef bun bao if delicious!
Great for a quick filling lunch that is a little different. Fantastic hours for the deal if you don't work a standard day
Really enjoyed the food, quick service
