Once we had ordered our food was sent to the wrong table and once our food arrived. The order was wrong and my vegetarian friend was told that a pork bao was tofu and once we notified staff we were not compensated. And the dumplings we ordered we also wrong and we were not informed which were vegetarian and which had meat which resulted in my friend once again eating meat when she is vegetarian

The food was amazing and plenty of it. The service was great, The drinks were okay. I would stick to the beer or wine as the cocktails were either to weak or to strong.

the food was adequate but overpriced for what we received , the table service was extremely poor with the waitress asking if we wanted dessert prior to cleaning our table of dirty dishes and having to wait excessively long for the attention of service to order , the waitstaff seemed new so hopefully just caught in the rush of the night

Little Viet was a great venue for some excellent Vietnamese cuisine in a lively venue located in an easy to get to spot near Manly Wharf and bus services.

Food was very fresh and tasty with plenty to chose from on the menu whether you are famished or just want a light meal.

I’ve been wanting to try this restaurant for a while and it was fabulous. A great place for mid week dinner as it was quite fast service. Food was delicious - we had bao, skewers and salt and pepper squid. Definitely going back again!

Great food but let down by all coming up once. Pet hate - bringing too many dishes and they don't fit on the table. We need time to eat entrees before mains turn up. Slow down people!

Found my bowl bland, a bit disappointed.

Maybe I simply did not order the right choice for me.

Little Viet Kitchen delivers consistently good food & service each time I visit. The food is always fresh and tasty, and the service is sublime. Staff are accommodating to dietary requirements, and the restaurant has an extensive range of options for individuals who are vegetarian or vegan. Cannot recommend this restaurant more!

There was plenty of food but it was not particularly tasty. The service was good however the table top felt sticky and there was a fatty odour permeating the restaurant which was unpleasant.

the 4 dishes we ordered arrived at the same time, i was expecting their delivery would be staggered to allow us to savour and enjoy the food
the waiter wanted me to pay the bill without checking it!!!

Hit and miss with dishes ordered. Duck pancake and crispy crab spring rolls were good to start. Dumplings terrible. Stodgy. No dipping sauce. Vegetable sides were tasty - Papaya salad and garlic water spinach. The charcoal pork was just some dry tasteless pieces of pork. Not even edible. Caramelised salmon which was $28 was just salmon floating in a plain sugar gravy. Vietnamese pancakes were just okay. Even the steamed rice was cold and a bit hard. We had to leave quickly after 90 minutes due to Covid restrictions. Two hours would have been a fairer amount of time given it was $200 for 4 of us with BYO wine. Won’t go again. The waitress was pleasant however and it was nice and warm under the heaters outside but so many better places in Manly than this one

First time there - eat a lot of Vietnamese food, mostly in Chatswood and Cabramatta.
Every dish except the spring rolls was either substandard, or downright terrible (and, no - we do not have unrealistic expactations). The goat curry was horrible - all of the meat was rock hard. Even the brown rice was rubbish - it was delivered to the table almost cold. The pork chops were dry. The only dish that gets a pass mark was the garlic green veg stir fry. Sorry, wish everything was great, as we'd love to find a regular Vietnamese restaurant in Manly, but not here.

Love this restaurant! Food is always excellent, service is great and prices are good, something for all budgets. Their lunch special is a great option through the week. The Buddha Bowl with Crispy Belly Pork is to die for!

One of my favorite restaurants in Manly, Little Viet Kitchen is always a good dinner option! Got to enjoy dumplings, cocktails and my "go-to" meal Banh Khot (Coconut & Turmeric savory Pancakes). The service is always amazing and was so nice to receive a free dessert for my friend and I at the end of the night of an amazing Fried Ice cream!
The ambiance and vibe of this restaurant is relaxed and chilled so always a good place to come to with groups, cannot wait to come back again soon!

Thank as always!

Never been here before, but wanted a midweek night out. Exceptionally yummy food. All the entrees were just lip smacking. Fast attentive service. It was pretty quiet when we were there, midweek, early.
