Squaremeal Review of Viet Grill ?

Of the many Vietnamese eateries in Shoreditch, Viet Grill is a great choice for novices. That’s not a comment on its menu, but its looks: a design-led mix of bold-print wallpaper, red leather chairs, counter dining and two clattering cocktail bars that’s a world away from many of the venue’s dowdy (yet delicious) neighbours. There’s substance beneath the style, too, at this stablemate to Cây Tre and Kȇu. From a menu of well-priced classics, don’t miss the pleasingly plump summer rolls, or the roasted ‘piggy’ aubergines featuring minced pork and nuoc cham (a dip of lime, chilli and fish sauce). Fragrant curries are another highlight, along with dishes finished at the table over a small fire (such as steak in a clay pot with oyster sauce). Add well-considered wines and the arresting cocktail bars and you have a contemporary, cool introduction to Kingsland Road’s Pho Mile.

I can see why this place is permanently packed with Shoreditch locals. It's good looking without being aggressively trendy or pretentious and the menu caters just as much for a beer and a bowl of pho as multiple courses. If you're paralysed by the range of choice, the smiley faces (denoting a house speciality) are a good guide – the five-spice beef fillet, for example, is a highlight and salads don't cheat on the spice either. Neither the service nor the seating is conducive to a long lingering meal,...
