My parter and I purchased a meal at this restaurant from an online daily deal site. I have to say that pretty much everything about my experience at Viet An was laughable. The moment that we walked in everything justs seemed wrong. The decor was awful, there were no other customers and It was freezing.
My partner and I were seated dead cenre of the large empty restaurant. When we mentioned that it was a little chilly we were brought three fan heaters which were placed on three sides of our table and blew hot air at us while we waited. Our food started to come, as did other customers, all couples who had also purchased the deal. As each couple walked through the door we could see the look of shock that must have been apparent on our faces as we had arrived. As for the food, let's just say that I left the restaurant hungry. First we were served savory pancakes which appeared to be ok until we came across a number of uncooked prawns. The spring rolls weren't too bad but one each was hardly enough to fill us up. When we got the the barbeque, the raw meat was brought to our table where the cling film was removed and we were told to cook. Unfortunately, the sight of blood and guts spilling out of the severed heads of our king prawns somehow zapped what was left of my appetite.
Despite the horrors of the evening, somehow it managed to take on a comedy element, like Fawlty Towers. Hilarious things kept happening, causing everyone in the restaurant to giggle behind their hands or simply laugh out loud.... such as barbeques refusing to work, home made heat reflectors (kitchen foil over card board) falling off the walls etc. I kept expecting a camera crew to jump out and tell us that we were in a new sketch show!
In closing, I will say that the two girls who run this restaurant are the sweetest people you are ever likely to meet. It is just unfortunate that they just don't realise what a bad experience they are providing.
