SquareMeal Review of Viet Garden

Stop by this family-run restaurant for lunch & you can snap up bun xa (steamed vermicelli noodles with chicken & lemongrass on a bed of salads) for a mere £4.50. You’re also likely to find kitchen staff making a huge pile of spring rolls, ready to serve fresh & crisp at dinner (when prices aren’t too much higher). The functional room isn’t much to look at, but the service, though sometimes disorganised, is always friendly. The food has both flavour & healthiness on its side. Regular customers rave about their favourites – perhaps the crispy salt & pepper aubergine, shaking beef (quick-fried beef cubes) or sizzling Hanoi fish. As the place gets packed most Friday & Saturday nights, the somewhat frugal list of wines & beers can’t be much of a concern.

A place to visit for the very good traditionally cooked Vietnamese food. The decor is functional rather than aesthetic so it's a place to come to eat rather than to linger. I agree with the reviewer that the staff are young and friendly. At times the service can be a bit slow and they have a curious tendency not have their full range of beers in stock (there's only a list of about 5 to begin with). I'd recommend this restaurant to people who live nearby and want a good meal in a casual relaxed setting. I am just around the corner from the restaurant and have eaten there more than a dozen times over the past 5 years. I'll keep returning. However given the functional setting I wouldn't recommend commuting to visit.
