Review on House of Ho
Launched in December 2015, House of Ho is set in an impressive four-storey converted Georgian townhouse in the heart of Fritzrovia, formerly home to Caprice Holdings Bam-Bou restaurant, it's a short walk from Tottenham Court Road tube.
Designed by Studio Minerva with colonial inspired themes whilst retaining elements of the building's heritage, it features high ceilings with revolving fans and a lovely terrace, perfect for drinks in the summer months. The first two floors house the restaurant, with a secret wine room hidden off the first floor landing, which showcases walls lined with fine wines for private tasting events. Amongst the warren of rooms there are further private dining rooms and each have their own unique style. In the restaurant, pale walls are decorated with distressed mirrors and wall lights by Tom Dixon and green velvet banquette seating is set against marble topped tables.
Chef Director is the acclaimed Ian Pengelley, who has devised a vibrant, modern Vietnamese menu from his extensive travels throughout Vietnam. Dishes include Vietnamese Scotch egg and soft shell crab with Vietnamese sauces amongst the small dishes. Elsewhere look for sea bass and prawn dumplings or Hanoi spiced volcano rolls. For a sweet finale there's a beautifully presented exotic fruit platter or a warm green tea fondant served with vanilla ice cream and passionfruit.
There's a carefully compiled wine list to complement the dishes together with Asian inspired cocktails such as Cho Lon Sour, Hibiki Japanese Harmony, Ardbeg, Yuzushu, lemon juice, Matcha TeaSyrup and egg white.
