The food at Au Lac is always so tasty and fresh. It’s a lovely cosy restaurant, great for couples but also enough room to bring family and friends. Linh is our favourite waitress and gives great advice on the menu.

Not as daring or intense as the food at its neighbour Farang (Thai, not Vietnamese), but a pretty good local nonetheless. Its a pretty classical vietnamese menu cooked pretty well in a quite pleasant room.

My family had a takeaway from this restaurant. There is a wide range of choice of the menu. We really enjoyed the crispy duck, Singapore noodles and the obligatory prawn crackers. Good price too. We will be back

It is nice to be able to rely on things and this place is one of those things. Viet pancake is good... pho is delish... springrolls are great.

Au Lac authentic Vietnamese Restaurant has been located in Highbury Islington since 1998. We are a friendly family-run restaurant which serves flavoursome home-style dishes at very reasonable prices, which became popular very quickly, as we were well reviewed by Time Out, a radio food programme and local newspapers. We also do free delivery service for those within 2 miles and our restaurant can cater for group/party bookings. Our menu is a fresh variety of traditional and modern Vietnamese cooking, Southern and Northern dishes, all carefully prepared by our fully-trained kitchen staff who are willing to make alterations to the dishes upon request . Au lac is a lifestyle to us, and it is very important to cook with the best products to make sure the food maintains a high quality at all times. We do our own daily shopping by hand picking from our suppliers to chose our best meats and fresh vegetables. We do our best to maintain high quality and service for all our customers so we hope to see you soon!
