The Little Viet Kitchen
Without a doubt the best Vietnamese I have been to. Such a great place and unbelievable food. Friendly service and somewhere special. A real gem of a place
Unfortunately as with a lot of trendy restaurants the table was tiny and sandwiched tightly in between two, 3 panelled Louvre shutters which made it claustrophobic, and dark. Perhaps a covid thing.
We ordered 5 dishes and literally 15 minutes later they all turned up at once leaving us scrambling for space. Little plant had to go and water put on the floor. Spring rolls look nice, but were bland not meaty and the diagonal cut made them cold quickly. Sauce was ok. Ribs tasty but over sauced with their sticky sauce, I can see people liking these but I say, salty and overpowering the pork. Whole fish very tasty, the best dish. But all the sauces have a similar theme so we didn’t have a variety of flavours really. Breaded prawns were crispy and soft inside with a Mayo type sauce that was tasty and this dish was different. I think of Vietnamese as more subtle and herby but with the menu that evening it was all a bit “same same but different “ as they say in Asia. We purposely avoided the Pho as we had it many other places. Would have been nice to see the prawn pancakes or other herby dishes that night. We had. Pork ribs, breaded prawns, pork spring rolls, fried sea bass, chicken dumplings. 2 beers £75.
Individually and spaced out nice enough dishes, except the spring rolls, But everything turned up at once and made the meal table busy and rushed . We were out in an hour and bloated. 5/10.
My favourite restaurant in London! The pho is unbelievable - highly recommend going here it’s fantastic.
Been here twice in a week, and each time food was superb
The best restaurant in London and our favourite place to visit for the most delicious food, cocktails and everything else! The staff are always so welcoming. Already looking forward to our next visit.
Amazing food, amazing flavours Food prepared with great care. As we are regulars, more veggie/vegan options would be icing on the cake for us but there are still enough to enjoy as is.
Fab cocktails too, we love this place.
Delicious and authentic food with great service in beautiful setting
I chose the Special surf and turf and it was amazing!!! Very tasty. My boyfriend chose the Pho and he said it has been one of the best he tasted so far in London.
Wonderful food in a friendly and Covid safe environment - what’s not to like
Outstanding food matched with superb service. A real treat 😊
The food is always exceptional! Top quality and fresh ingredients, every dish we have ever tried has been incredible
Fantastic food, brilliant service, lovely setting. We shall return!
Fantatsic food and lovely restaurant and service. Best Vietnamese themed food I have eaten in yet in London.
The food is just amazing, the chef is there to please and the service is super friendly. Authentic with a twist for the Vietnamese food lovers
This was our first visit to this restaurant, the staff were friendly and helpful. We haven’t eaten Vietnamese food before... we shared prawn crackers and Chicken dumplings they were amazing as were our mains and we shared the lightest cheesecake.
We will definitely return!
Good ambience, tasty food, nice decor and friendly staff.
Best bowl of Pho ever!!! Really brilliant food and service, would definitely recommend.
Fantastic service, and incredibly delicious food. Loved it so much even bought the book, which Thuy ( the incredible chef signed for me)🙏
We came here after seeing so many delicious pictures spread across the Instagram pages of celebrities, I thought if these guys are raving about it, then I need to go! I wasn’t at all disappointed! The little place has around 10 tables so be sure to book. I think pre Covid there was a few more but the space I. Their is wonderful and you wouldn’t notice where they used to be. You feel distanced from everyone and have plenty of room to pile up the deliciously authentic dishes.
As Thuy was originally from Vietnam and has been in london 30 years, she has put a slightly different twist on some of the dishes. Some have a taste of Thailand too, which I love!
We’ve been twice in the last week or so as we desperately wanted to try so much in the ever changing menu and didn’t want to miss out..
I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, but suffice to say, I left satisfied, full and with a beautiful taste In my mouth..
Great food and delicious cocktails
The sea bass is a a must
Wonderful service by the staff, the food arrived quickly at the table and was extremely comforting and tasty. The large plates were quite pricy and the rice portion was slightly less than what would be needed accompanied with a large dish however on a whole, would return and try the rest of the menu!
Truly fantastic - perfect restaurant for ordering and sharing a selection of different dishes.
Absolutely amazing service and food. I’m definitely going back!
The food is as epic as I'd hoped. Fast service (but not so fast you worry about freshness). Every single thing was delicious. Can't wait to go back!
Great, buzzy little restaurant with amazing flavoursome food. Cocktail menu was really interesting! Can’t wait to go back and try more of the menu.
Delicious food !
Table a bit cramped for a 6’4” diner!
We absolutely loved our visit to The Little Viet Kitchen, such a sweet little setting, warm & friendly welcome, fantastic service and AMAZING food!!
The closest thing to being in Vietnam!
The food was outstanding and had so many layers of taste. Can't wait to go back!
We were made to rush our meal, the waiter standing behind our table until we finished eating. I understand the turnarounds are tight, but this was extremely uncomfortable. All our food arrived at once, and the bill was expensive for what we ordered.
We always have an amazing time when we come here. Fantastic food and drinks, great service - one of our all time favourites. Consistently excellent.
We had a thoroughly delightful meal at Little Viet Kitchen. The food looked and tasted amazing. The lychee martini also did not disappoint! The service was attentive and efficient. Thank you for a really enjoyable evening.
Delicious food, great service!
The food is delicious and the staff is wonderful. Have the pho, you won’t regret it.
The pho was to die for <3 The broth was so clear, yet so flavourful, and the beef brisket was tender to the point of falling apart <3
Loved everything about it. The service was the perfect balance of attentive but not encroaching. The food was delicious; we wanted to try everything on the menus but decided upon Pork Spring Rolls, soft shell crab salad and then the beef pho & beef curry completely delicious. Finished off with a mango coconut milk cheesecake which was so light, my boyfriend said it was the the best dessert he’d ever had.
Also felt well managed in Covid times.
Will definitely be back
Fantastic food, great service and a relaxed atmosphere. Best ribs EVER!!!
This was not our first trip to LVK - every time we come the food is sensational. Every course, the drinks menu, the teas, the service, the wonderful head chef downstairs, all these components make it one of our all time fave spots to eat at. We will be back!
I've been here several times and it's always fantastic. I love the decor, the staff are friendly but professional and the food is delicious. A lot of it is pretty hot so this place might not be for you if you don't like chilli. They also have a few vegan dishes too - I had the tofu and lemongrass curry and the most amazing lemongrass sherbet.
Amazing food and excellent service- we will definitely be back!
I love Vietnamese food. I travelled all over Vietnam in 2017 and ate some of the best food I've ever eaten. I'm constantly searching for good Vietnamese in this country and have found some very good ones indeed. The Little Viet Kitchen is by far the best I've found so far. Every dish was outstanding, cooked perfectly with well balanced flavours and excellent ingredients. The restaurant is quaint and inviting with a well stocked bar that serves really good cocktails. The staff and owners were all friendly and helpful. I can't wait to go back!!
The food here is normally excellent but felt it was slightly below par on Friday. Crab salad dressing a bit too sweet for me nd the crab was tasteless. I didn’t particularly enjoy a pork dish roasted for 6 hours but that was totally my fault -I don’t like pork belly fat (doh!) - but was beautifully cooked. My husband really enjoyed pork spring rolls and the beef burger. However, the bill for 2 was £90 which for two courses, one glass of wine and two beers seemed steep.
Finally, the menu has been shortened which is totally understandable in these times but there were no pho and no spring rolls. I am sure they will be back when things settle down and we will certainly be back. The staff are terrific.
