Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This place is fantastic. Very lovely and attentive staff and the food is so nice. We are from out of town and staying nearby - trued to book a table by phone and although no answer a very quick text back to ask us if...they could help. Sorted a table for an hour later - I really felt this went above and beyond. When we got here the service was fantastic. Followed by lovely food and I thought the price was very reasonable. If in the area a good place to eat! ThanksMore

I was recently visiting Bristol and I’d heard about how good the food was in Bristol and Viet Kitchen set the bar very high. I’ve had Vietnamese food a couple of times before mainly Pho and so was buzzing to come here and it did...not disappoint. We ordered some starters e.g Gyoza, Prawn Summer Rolls and Bao Buns and then for mains we had a combination of curries and pho’s. The portions of the mains especially were HUGE and we all struggled to finish them. The food was full volume flavour, I couldn’t resist trying some of everyone else’s. For 6 of us, starters, mains and drinks it came to about £150 which is just excellent value. In London I’d pay double the price for that quality and size food. I’d 100% recommend going here and when I’m next back in Bristol will definitely visit.More

Understated but the food speaks for itself. Yummy pho, bao and curry. Perfect for a delicious relaxed lunch. Friendly and efficient service we will come again.

The food here was truly inspirational. Grab a meal before it gets a well deserved muchelin star. I don't have sufficient praise to heap on this incredible restaurant and it's wonderful authentic food. Hugely recommended.

Came with a group of friends for a birthday. Attentive staff and great food! I really enjoyed my main dish with rice noodles - felt like I was back in Hanoi, and the bao was delicious. Would definitely recommend for an authentic experience!

We went to the Cotham Viet Kitchen and had some great food. It was a bit disjointed with the service, and our main courses arrived before our starters, but the flavours were superb. So hopefully it's just a few teething pains in the early days...as I will definitely return.More

Aside from the lovely cosy ambience perfect for a date night, the pho is absolutely to die for. Lovely subtle flavours in the broth with an underlying richness from the meats. Make sure to book in advance as this place is popular!
