About Go Viet

After the phenomenal success of Chinatown’s Viet Food, chef proprietor Jeff Tan opens his flagship, high-end Vietnamese restaurant, Go-Viet, in the heart of leafy South Kensington. With its comfortable booth seating, low hanging Asian style lamps, terracotta colour scheme and backlit tortoiseshell wall panels, it is sleek, contemporary and minimalist. From the moment you walk in there is a feeling of warmth and peacefulness. Jeff combines the finest quality Vietnamese ingredients with Western cooking style, injecting healthy elements to Vietnamese cuisine and gives it a modern twist. His menu at Go-Viet celebrates Vietnam’s vibrant culinary heritage. Fresh and fragrant herbs combined with delicately seasoned sauces and broths, dishes are not only beautifully presented but packed full of flavour, and free from MSG. A selection of red, rose and white world wines, unique cocktails (as well as non-alcoholic versions), beers, ciders and juices, make up the extensive drinks list.

Great food, great service. Very accommodating of our requests. Seated and served us with very little delay, which was exceptionally helpful when we were running to a tight schedule. Soft shell crab; beef cheeks and wagyu pho all absolutely delicious.

GoViet - stumbled upon this after watching a matinee show of the Nutcracker at the nearby Royal Albert Hall. Food was delicious and quick, (I would have liked to see more options for the summer rolls and salads but the mixed appetizer dish was a great recommendation). The service was friendly. Overall, a great find!

I have been to Go twice now and both occasions the food has been delicious. Very flavourful. Not a traditional Vietnamese restaurant- more a fusion, but don't let that put you off. This is definitely one of the more delicious restaurants in London! Have a melée of starters...

Fantastic interesting food at this innovative Vietnamese restaurant. I came for dinner with three foodie friends who all loved it. My only quibble is with some of the pricing. Charging £9 for a side dish of broccoli or green beans seems pretty outrageous. But overall a fabulous dinner.

Go Vietnam looks pretty modest from the outside but the experience proved to be special for a special friends get together. The food is superb with really fresh ingredients beautifully cooked, the sea bass was particularly memorable. Service was charming and efficient and the bill was very fair for the high standards on the night.

This was my first time at this restaurant. Always wanted to try the Vietnamese cuisine and was not disappointed. The food was delicious and the portions very generous and not knowing this we ordered too much but it was worth it. The staff is very friendly and quick.Nice place to go again.

Food generally good to very good. As a main we would avoid the dry prawn noodles as they were just not nice. Rest was good but when we ordered we asked no onions on top if possible and they forgot and brought one dish which was covered in shallots and another had to be redone and arrived when the others had finished eating.. hence the low score on service.
