Pretty restaurant with a small but varied menu of genuine Vietnamese food and tapas style small plates. Service was a little slow to start with and then everything came at once (drinks, starters and mains) so a little rushed in the end. Food was very tasty if not a little too rich - but the whole evening was generally very pleasant so these are all minor criticisms.

Wonderful experience - great atmosphere, welcoming staff, excellent guidance on portion sizes and flavours, wonderful cocktails, a great place to go if you’re happy to order lots of smaller plates although they also do “mains” size dishes (highly recommend the lamb cutlets). The Vietnamese salad is amazing and with 2 small additional plates was more than enough for a filling meal. Will definitely be back.

We've only been to this place twice. The first time was many years ago and we absolutely loved it. This time around in May 2018,i have to admit to being disappointed. The service was excellent but the food was less than the immaculate concoctions we remembered. However it was still a nice meal. Recommended but probably only if you're in the area.

My fiance and I visited this restaurant for the first time at the weekend. The food reminded us of the food we loved when travelling through Vietnam and the service was friendly and welcoming. We very much enjoyed our experience and would recommend. Try the lychee martini, it was fantastic!

I had heard about the restaurant for a while and finally had a chance to visit for a lunchtime birthday celebration. Upon entering I immediately liked the ambience and decor of the restaurant. The staff were very attentive and very friendly. The food was excellent. My friends and I enjoyed our experience. Everything to make a repeat visit on the cards. I will definitely go back again. Keep it up The Little Viet Kitchen!!!

The food in general was very good, apart from a daily special dish of beef in tempura sauce, of which we had ordered 2 portions. This dish comprised thin slices of beef on the bone in a thick sauce, but the beef was quite fatty and very tough, and it proved impossible to eat with chopsticks - even with a knife and fork it was a challenge. The other dishes were very good, but I'm afraid the meal will be remembered for the impossible to eat dish.

This is my all time favourite in Angel. The menu changes regularly but I have always enjoyed every single dish that I ordered. The long-standing items - spring rolls and pho noodles are absolutely classics that I always recommend to friends who come here for the first time and everyone loves them. The service here is so welcoming and cozy. It's a great place for any occasion!

Little Viet Kitchen has a lovely low-lot ambiance, attentive and friendly staff, and is in a lively area. The food was good. My main issue was with the prices, which seemed high.

Four of us enjoyed a late lunch. The small restaurant is pleasantly decorated and plays unobtrusive music, all staff made us feel at ease and were extremely quick and helpful. Pho, soft shell crab, crab salad, fried tofu, spring rolls all delicious. Great selection of gin and cocktails. Not cheap but tasty and relaxing.

Delicious food. Think they were struggling with popularity when we visited though - serving staff appeared stretched and food arrived before drinks. Perhaps don’t go on a Saturday night and aim for a quieter time
