The Little Viet Kitchen
Food was fantastic and service seamless. It’s a great place which I’d highly recommend.
I had the beef short rib curry which was to die for!
One of the best meals we had in London, this included a 1, 2 and 3 Michelin star restaurants we dined at. You can tell they use fresh ingredients, quality meat and a lot of passion for cooking, which resulted in bursts of flavor with each byte. Really well done! Not only the food but also the service was great.
The food and the experience was so good that we had to go back for the second dinner before leaving London.
Great food, good ambience, good service and not too pricey.
Wow, wow, wow!! What a meal, didn’t want to stop eating. This is now my second fav restaurant in the world (Positano in Guildford is still my No.1).
If your in the area, or even not, make your way.
Friendly owner and staff. Thank you guys & of course the chef, you done good girl 🤗
Great little restaurant for lunch before matinee performance at Sadlers Wells.
We loved the whole experience
Would definitely go again
What a lovely experience, good food and a lovely atmosphere.
The food was lovely albeit a little bit expensive.
Although we did pay the 12.5 service charge, on reflection I felt it wasn't warranted.
The waiter that' served us had no enthusiasm, we were not 'welcomed' upon arrival. There were no smiles, no 'welcome to the restaurant' when we were seated, it took him some to time to come back and to take a drinks order.
There was no courtesy check either.
We declined on the dessert as there was only one option avaliable on the day, but not once did the waiter offer us any more drinks.
And we had to ask for the bill at the counter as it was never offered and were waiting & waiting!
I have to say that food & the ambiance is on point but very disappointed with the service .
I would recommend the restaurant based on the food & ambiance only.
When we arrived we were seated and the service was great, the menus was explained to us well and they suggested we didn’t over order which I thought was good.
The food was gorgeous, everything was tasty and well presented. The food was served really quick. After we ate I think we had a new waiter, our plates were left on our table for over half an hour, which I hate anyway and we weren’t asked if we wanted anymore drinks and no one come over to us once we finished eating. We had travelled to London for my daughters birthday and I would have happily stayed had a couple of drinks and maybe a dessert once dinner had settled. As no one cleared our plates and it seemed obvious we weren’t going to be spoken to again we ordered the bill. There was a 12.5% optional service fee added, if the service had of continued how it started I would not have had a problem with this. We asked to reduce it to 10% to be told “it's already on the bill” it may have been a misunderstanding but I thought this was a rude reply. We paid and just reduced the overall payment in the end, which didn’t seem to go down well with the waiter.
It’s such a shame as we loved the food and the atmosphere and the initial service, who I think was the owner, the latter part was just a disappointment.
The food quality was exceptional! I recommend the Vietnamese salad and the pork dumplings, they were my favourite. ☺️
Another exceptional combination of authentic Vietnamese food and fabulous service in a relaxed location. Highly recommended. Chef Thuy cooks with love, just like her book says. Go- you won't regret it! Thanks again.
We ordered a selection of 5 dishes for the 3 of us to share. All of which were excellent.
Great! Super friendly Service, beautiful location, absolut overwhelming taste. We loved it!
We were on holiday from Germany. Otherwise we would come at least once a month!
Lovely atmosphere and great food! Would definitely recommend it
Great food and nice relaxed vibe. Great little place.
Wonderful food and service. A little pricey but the quality shows.
Great food, very good & friendly service and a fair price. Will definitely be back!
I had to bully myself into not having the famed braised beef coconut curry. I went for the broth instead. Little did I expect to find a broth that tasted just like that of the seafood market in Halong, an outstanding flavour I had all but given up on.
Fantastic food, good portion sizes. Great selection of drinks available. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Lovely restaurant with great decor and laid back feel. The food was outstanding, flavours I recognise as Vietnamese but with an added twist. Raising the game for presentation and taste of authentic Vietnamese dishes.
Cute little place, nice decor. The tapas dishes were almost as much as the main dishes. Should be slightly less I think. Cocktails were lovely, recommend the lychee martini. All-in-all great food and great service
Great food! Great ambiance.
A contemporary twist on Vietnamese food! Delicious and would happily recommend to friends and family.
Food was great. Service however was very poor. Food was served quickly however we were not checked on at all by the waitstaff at all. We had to flag down someone to ask for extra items and waited about 20 minutes after completing eating before having to wave someone over to remove our plates and bring out bill. Mind you it was not very busy there were servers just standing around.
This was our first visit. We had late lunch / early dinner there. We ordered two starters and three mains which arrived at the same time despite we were the only customers . It was disappointing as we wanted to have a leisurely meal. Food was ok but dishes were a bit sweet to me. Pho with rib was nicely cooked.
Pleasant dinner at the Little Vietnamese Kitchen. While the meal was tasty, the dishes tended to be a bit on the sweet side vs hot or sour. The best dish was the lemon grass chicken soup with noodles, as it had a good balance of heat, sourness & sweetness. The service was friendly & attentive & the restaurant had a relaxed, welcoming vibe.
Food and cocktails so delicious. The only complaint was how low the chairs were at our table and quite uncomfortable after a couple of hours sitting! Will definitely visit again.
Fabulous! Excellent, fresh, spicy food. Can't recommend it highly enough!
Lovely food and brilliant service , we had a great evening x
I ordered the Special Pho and it was one of the worst I had. The beef was stuck together, tough and dry. They clearly didn’t bother to separate the pre-sliced meat when cooking. The rice noodle was undercooked and was also stuck together. The broth has a nice flavor but too salty and not enough for everything to swim in. The drinks were too sweet and underwhelming. I doubt the chef that evening was Asian because us Asians don’t serve our family food like this at home. I thought they just had a bad night but later learnt from friends who live locally (we flew from Australia for this dish) that this place is NOT known for good Vietnamese food. The waiter we had was very nice and customer service was excellent during our entire visit.
What a sensational feast we had! A perfect way to celebrate our anniversary.
Fantastic vegan options.
Have wanted to go here for ages, it did not disappoint- great food & cocktails
A must in London! Second time and again outstanding good!!! So many flavors🙌
I've eaten here at lunch time before and it was great. This time we ate in the evening and it was just as good. The menu offers plenty of choice, portions are a good size and the food is just delicious. The staff are always very welcoming and accommodating, the atmosphere is relaxed with a good level of background noise. I'd highly recommend The Little Viet Kitchen.
I bring all of my clients and special lunches here. It's a real treat and never disappoints.
Very nice food, really helpful and pleasant waiter, just a bit on the pricey side.
Delicious meal with amazing flavours . I had wanted to come to this restaurant ever since I was given the Cookery book as a birthday gift. Only small negative is we were still enjoying the end of our meal and the ambiance and had to vacate the table ( we did know this when we booked but time went very quickly) ... ended up going somewhere else for coffees and liqueurs.
Overall though a fantastic meal - caramelised salmon and Vietnamese salad so delicious, my husband loved the coconut and lemongrass beef curry.
It was a lovely experience but just one point to raise. I felt the choice on the lunch menu was very restricted edpecially as I don’t eat meat. Otherwise I’d definitely go back but I’ll be booking for dinner.
Really good pho, very fresh-tasting. However, was quite overpriced.
Amazing place, must try!
The food was delicious!I recommend for your first time vietnamese experience! The pho was really good! and the crispy dumplings Omg! I never had anything Like that! The restaurant is lovely decorated And the waiters were friendly.
Downside: the place was really hot, crowded and loud. Its just too stuffed in such a small room! Putting a few tables less will make dining more enjoyable and the Waiters more space to move.
