London is no stranger to quality Vietnamese restaurants and Viet Quan on Old Kent Road is an eatery that deserves all the praise it gets. A family-friendly spot, Viet Quan offers diners a wide variety of traditional Vietnamese plates, all spiced to perfection. Keep an eye out for the kitchen's special dim sum menu too. Popular with locals in the Southwark area, we recommend snapping up a table at Viet Quan at the first possible opportunity.
Food sounds delicious?
Get a table before they're gone
We'd booked a spot here specifically for dim sum, as their website indicated they had a dim sum menu. However, when we arrived and asked for a dim sum menu, we were told that they 'don't do that anymore'. I was sorely disappointed but stayed on and ordered from their usual menu. The food itself was very tasty and came in generous portions. I found the kind prawns with salted egg a little dry, but the chicken wings were delicious. The service was also great and very friendly.
The food was good and prices reasonable. This was our second visit to the restaurant in the same week. Our concern was about the customer toilet on the ground floor. We noticed water coming out from the hole in the hand washing basin when we flushed the toilet. I told one of the waiters about the problem and he said it would be fixed by a plumber. I regret to say that the problem still existed during our second visit.
Lovely food and really friendly staff. I will definitely be going back
