Last Saturday was my first time at Viet Eat: I had one of the best Phos ever, great Vietnamese coffee and amazing mochi ice cream dessert (must-have!). The staff was very friendly and I really enjoyed the interior too with its simple yet cozy design. Definitely need to come back this weekend to try the Banh mi sandwich!

Hands down, the best Vietnamese places in London that I've been to so far, and there have been quite a few. Stop looking, just go here. My husband and I got the sea bass with rice, and the honey barbecue pork with noodles dish and it was like we died and went to heaven. *****Large portion size and very high... More

We frequently go here for the amazing vietnamese food, grilled pork with rice is my favourite. You can also have it with vermicelli rice noodles or in a baguette (bahn mi). Fast and friendly service. Highly recommend!

We had 2 fantastic Vietnamese baguettes when we searched for lunch on Valentine's Day. Food came quickly and was packed with delicious meet and fresh veggies. I didn't realise Vietnamese was missing bread but ohhhh how bread improves it. The restaurant is cosy and like other Vietnamese places you sit close to others, so be aware of that. Would definitely... More

Popped in after the theatre. It had a really informal atmosphere, was more like a cafe than a restaurant. The food was really good and reasonably priced. I went for the beef Pho. It was very well done with loads of flavour, perfect for the cold weather. Service was great as well. Highly recommend.

Been there on Friday's evening (1900), there was room and we didn't have to wait. We've ordered NEM CHAY RÁN (veggie egrols) for start, and PHỞ TRUYỀN THỐNG (soup with Tofu) and GÀ SẢ NƯỚNG LÁ (lemongrass chicken) for main course. The food was delicious and fresh. It came in the right order. The service was welcoming. The place is... More

My wife had the Phở Bò Sốt Vang - Red Wine Beef Stew with noodles. This was delicious and a good twist on South East Asian food. I had the Cá Chiên Mắm Xoài - Crispy Mango Sea Bass served with sweet and sour fish sauce. This was totally scrummy and exactly what I expected of the light sweet and... More

Stumbled across the canteen style place one Sunday evening and as it seemed so popular we stepped in, and were not disappointed. The portions were good, service friendly and swift, food tasty and atmosphere fun - they were blasting out 80s and 90s hits that had you singing along before you could even remember the name of the tune. Fun... More

Delicious food. Very good service. It is very close to the London School of Economics. That could be the reason why the place is a bit crowded. I will definitely go back there.
