    Delicious food with hardly any MSG, which is unusual to find in a lot of South East Asian and Far East Asian cuisine. Fantastic specials. Great service and fab non-alcoholic cocktails. Well priced.

    Good food but the restaurant didn't make it clear at the time of booking that they needed the table back within 1.5 hours. It really spoilt a birthday dinner and we were not impressed. Avoidable.

    Food was very good and the servers were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The only downside to our experience was the host announcing they needed our table after being there for 45 minutes. As it happened, we had just finished eating so it wasn't an issue.

    We love the VietFood branch, but GoViet has little to do with the experience. Cold, 13 in a dozen experience. Food fresh but not super tasty. Music lounge beatbox a bit too loud and anonymous. Maybe we expected too much since the place was crowded.

    Sadly I did not check the fine print in the booking and we weee restricted to an 1hr 15 for the table, rather than 2 hrs which was what I anticipated. As the booking was for a friends birthday, we chatted quite a bit and so was a bit sad to be rushed. The venue itself could do with a lick of paint and downstairs could do with a good deep clean. Most of staff were lovely. Not likely to book again , as preferred their sister restaurant but not been there since Covid
