The House of HoBobby Chinn, a New Zealand-born chef who already has two successful restaurants in Vietnam - Restaurant Bobby Chinn in Saigon and Hanoi - opened his first London restaurant, The House of Ho in Soho on 6th January 2014. Described as a restaurant with "real potential" by Tom Parker Bowles, who highlighted a "magnificent wodge of apple-smoked pork belly" for special praise, this "resolutely Vietnamese" venue offers a menu of traditional dishes from Vietnam where Bobby has lived since 1996, but given his own twist developed from his travels around the world. Born in New Zealand to a Chinese father and Egyptian mother, Bobby was educated in England and lived in the States for several years so he certainly has plenty of international experience to draw on when it comes to culinary invention. The atmosphere at this 90-seat restaurant on Old Compton Street will be "fun" and "informal" with moderate prices.
