It was our second time for eating here. We like Vietnamese foods but the attitude of serving was not well. We prepared to order drinks immediately and order foods later because we were not hungry now. After about 30 minutes to 6:20PM, the waitress told us the table which we sat had a reservation at 6:30 PM. But there were many tables were empty in the restaurant, and we still wanted to stay here and order later. So, the waitress said likes “it’s doesn’t matter, but you need order now. “. Then we ordered our foods immediately and we could sat for long time on the table which had a reservation at 6:30PM.
Small, tucked away, unappealing and very authentic, delicious and worthwhile. It doesn't look much, but the food and service is the star. The menu was extensive, the food we had was delicious and the service was prompt, pleasant and professional. The portions are large and satisfying and food comes quickly. Not exactly a homey or romantic vibe, and not really a place to linger, but a great place to chow down on tasty Vietnamese food. Already planning my return.
Perhaps the best Vietnamese restaurant in all of London! I've eaten at many Vietnamese places in London. This one is authentic, delicious, and affordable.
absolutely phenomenal food. Very moderately priced. Decent service and portion sizes. The one small flaw is that they don't accept credit cards. Just make sure you visit an ATM before you go there for a meal
Firstly, I’d like to say that the shared starter at Sen Viet was excellent. However, sadly this was the only positive to take away from our experience at this restaurant.
For an unknown reason, we were made to wait 15 minutes to be seated despite the fact that the restaurant was nearly empty.
Furthermore, we were not provided with the mains we ordered, which wasn’t surprising since the waitress did not write anything down. What was surprising was that the waiting staff were quite rude when we questioned our order. I was provided with a fairly bland vermicelli soup after ordering a dry bun noodle dish, and after raising this the waiter stubbornly tried to convince me that my order was correct rather than admitting their error.
Rather than this restaurant, I would recommend trying Paolina Thai just up the road, where the staff are much friendlier and the food is better value... plus you get given what you order!
