Food was beautiful, fresh simple and delicious. Staff were very helpful, we asked their recommendations for people trying Vietnamese for the first time and they made sure we liked it throughout. Gets a little busy (we went Monday @ 19:30) but well worthwhile.

Sen Viet is a hidden gem where I always come back whenever am around Kings Cross. The restaurant is fairly small and there is not much space. Nevertheless the service is just brilliant: super quick and super helpful. Great range of food: from beef pho to delicious rice dishes. If you are around, don't miss it... if not, is worth... More

We did a random search for somewhere to eat near KX and found this place - really worth the few minutes walk to get there. It's very unassuming and simple decor so you might not stop if you were just passing, but it was so worth going in to eat. The food was delicious. We had the mixed 3 course... More

So I was in London and decided to try Vietnamese food for the first time. After a quick look at reviews etc, the best place seemed to be this one. It looked nothing special from the front as the taxi pulled up - more like a takeaway. However, once inside I looked around, and I was the only person who... More

Lovely friendly service with the food coming out really quickly. It was a lovely meal, full of flavour and our whole table left clean plates. I would definitely go back!

Visited solo with no reservation and they fit me in though the place became very crowded later. Great Vietnamese food with interesting twists, some I guess British-ized but really tasty. Good value, about 30 pounds including 2 beers, app & main.

Visited Sen Viet yesterday for lunch with my nephew, who had never eaten Vietnamese food before. It's fairly close to Kings X/St.Pancras and ideal as a lunch venue if you need to be close to the railway station but don't want nasty station food. The location is on Kings X Road on a parade with other small restaurants and shops,... More

Quite a small restaurant, full of flavour and atmosphere. Good service with very friendly and helpful staff. We had a delicious meal, washed down with cold Vietnamese beers - very enjoyable indeed.

The food was good and it is quite cheap. It is good value for money. The service could have been better.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
