Last night I went to the restaurant with my friends and I was very disappointed. I had a dish with beef meet and I was not able to eat it as it was extremely chewy and my boyfriend ordered fried sea bass which tasted good but was very, very salty. The staff was standing in groups and chatting away without paying any attention to what the guests need. We had to keep asking for every little thing like a fork , glass, napkin, or even to take our plates away as we finished eating a while ago. Also, during our meal no one has came to ask whether we enjoy the food or if we needed something. As we were not very familiar with the cuisine we wanted to learn a little bit more about the dishes we ordered, unfortunately the waiter could not provide us with much information. Overall , not a great experience. I doubt we will be ever returning to this restaurant.

I went to Que Viet, on the Recommendation of friends of mine, who were regulars and so for my birtehday arranged for A party of 12 to go there. I was very badly affected with what can only be Described as the worst 3 days of my life when the following day I suffered from bouts of diarhoea and vomiting. I have found that another member of our party suffered bad Stomach aches the next day. Our service was very good and we found the food very Tasty. However our evening was Further marred by the fact that on paying our bill, one of our party on paying noticed the kitchen door open and was astounded by the site of A very messy kitchen and what seemed like card board on the floor on which there were pots and pans. Altough the food is very Tasty and the Presentaion good. I will not be returning to the restaurant as I am not prepared to have the food I eat in pans left on the floor. Where is the health and hygiene in the place. It was A very bad experience for me and some of my friends were appalled by the information we got from another member of our party. Im sure that this is Maybe an off nigth for the place but I will never go back. Not A good experience. Libby B.

I had a really lovely experience at Que Viet and is definitely my favourite Vietnamese in Shoreditch (though I haven't been to them all) Ok so first off my friends and I were really well looked after from the start - given warm towels at the beginning of the meal, checked on a number of times, and given free orange slices after we'd finished! We were really made to feel welcome. The food was gorgeous - being a vegetarian I often find it hard in Vietnamese places, but I had delicious starters and a main. Can't wait to go again and try something else!

Ended up in Kingsland Road by chance. I never knew that there were so many Vietnamese restaurants here and my friend and I chose Que Viet. We managed to get a table straight away even though it was very full. We chose the roll-yourself rice paper spring rolls to share for a starter. Amazing! Absolutely delicious. Our mains were also very good quality but for me less extraordinary (not ordinary but the rice paper rolls were hard to beat!). I am an immediate convert to this style food. Highly recommended. When the bill came it was such good value. The service was excellent too.

I have now been to this restaurant about 5 or 6 times and each time I have had something different. The food is excellent and combined with the price, service and decor you can not ask for much more. Having not been to a Vietnamese restaurant before I moved to London I would probably say that it is now one of my favourite styles of food. Since visiting this restaurant for the first time I have also not had any call to go to any of their competitors although from previous visits prior to the discovery of this place, Que Viet definately tops the list. For the food, atmosphere and service and the price it comes at (just under £20 a head for a very good feed and drink) i can not give this anything else but 5 stars. Tip - if you don't know what to have or are trying Vietnamese for the first time just ask the staff for their recommendations as they will not advise you of what they are trying to get rid of in the kitchen but will give honest guidance.

Que Viet is definitely the poshest of all the Vietnamese places on Kingsland Road. This is reflected in the surrounds, service and varied menu, but thankfully not in the extremely reasonable prices.

The Venue
Shoreditch’s Kingsland Road is a long one, packed with places to eat Vietnamese food. Whilst most places resemble cafes, canteens, or takeaways, Que Viet is definitely a proper restaurant and, though not at all out of place on the pleasantly shabby street, has a definite air of sophistication about it. Que Viet’s main point of difference is its focus on the influence of French colonialism, an influence which is reflected in its name as well as the multiple appearances of snails and frogs’ legs on the menu.

The Atmosphere
Que Viet isn’t a big restaurant and there is clearly the desire to fit in as many people as possible. Whilst tables are positioned in close rows in order to enable this, they stop short of being overly crpwded. Immaculately laid out tables, plush leather seats, wood floor, doting and helpful waiters and arty wall dressings contribute to a classiness more fitting of a high-end French restaurant than an East London Vietnamese joint - a factor which manages to suit rather than jar due to the colonial history on which the restaurant is based.

The Food
The vast menu takes a bit to negotiate and it’s not immediately clear which dishes are starters and which are main courses. Though staff are helpful and willing to advise, the general consensus is to just order what you want for each course, about one dish per person. Char-grilled beef wrapped in betel leaves (£5.80) makes a generous starter – the wraps are intensely meaty and come with a sweet, slightly spicy dipping sauce. Deep fried salt and pepper squid (£5.50) is a classic and one of the restaurant’s most popular dishes. Indeed the squid is soft and tender whilst the addictively salty batter is crisp to the bite. Mekong fish hot and sour soup (small, £3.50) is fresh and zingy with flavours of lemongrass, tamarind and coriander along with soft pieces of the Mekong river’s resident fish – basa. A green papaya salad (£5.00) is crunchy and slightly spicy and comes with the option of either prawns or beef for an extra 50p.

A main course of stewed goat with coconut sauce (£6.50) is a rich, aromatic yellow curry and comes to the table in a flaming dish for added drama. Shaking beef with garlic (£6.50), tender beef cubes in a garlicky gravy, is delicious though distinctly not shaking. Slowly cooked duck with onions and ginger (£6.00) is meltingly tender and only delicately flavoured by the spices – a contrast to the tofu in tamarind sauce (£5.00) which is bold and punchy with tamarind’s trademark sourness. Egg fried rice (£2.80) is a perfect foil for these rich and varied dishes, though there are a whole range of more elaborate rice and noodle dishes available.

Desserts aren’t really the specialty of Que Viet, and the portions ensure not many people will have that much room remaining for them anyway, but a range of ice creams and sorbets are available for a refreshing finish.

The Drink
A fairly comprehensive drinks menu is available covering all bases from rum, gin and brandy to beers and wines as well as the usual soft drinks. A citrusy Vietnamese beer (£2.60) is a recommended and traditional accompaniment, but the fruity house wine, a French Sauvignon Blanc (£13.50 for a bottle) is an equally pleasurable match.

The Last Word
Que Viet merges French and Vietnamese dining styles to create a smart, sophisticated but ultimately relaxed restaurant offering both authentic and creative Vietnamese dishes at a bargain of a price.
