What Our Customers Are Saying

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Had the share platter for 2. A little pricey at 11.50 a head for 6 pieces each. But worth it. We needed more so went for a beef main dish which was also very good. House bottle of red. 14.50. All very lovely. @Senvietkingscross @senvietchay – Sen Viet Menu – King’s Cross

Some of the best Vietnamese food in London. Very reasonable prices. The ban xeo (Vietnamese pancake), crispy rolls, rice paper rolls, spicy hue noodle soup, and banh mi are all excellent. Staff is responsive and on top of it. Love the avocado smoothie or mango/coconut. Only small gripe: Music is a bit loud to speak at a normal volume. Otherwise I’ve been coming here for years and love it! @Senvietkingscross @senvietchay – Sen Viet Menu – King’s Cross

I’m Vietnamese, and I can confirm that this is a truly Vietnamese restaurant with authentic and tasty foods. Best Vietnamese restaurant in the UK for me! I have tried many places in the UK that claim to be a Vietnamese restaurant from Scotland to many other cities in England, especially several places in London but I ended up with eating something else with poor flavour, far from original Vietnamese food. I guess other restaurants try to change the flavour to fit their western customers but you will be upset very very much if you used to have a real Vietnamese food before. Our Vietnamese cuisine is better than that 1000 times. Again, If you want to try what Vietnamese people eat, you have to go to Sen Viet. You won’t regret after that! And I must say that the atmosphere in the restaurant made me miss Vietnam a lot. Kudos to all people working at Sen Viet. @Senvietkingscross @senvietchay – Sen Viet Menu – King’s Cross
