From the outside this restaurant looks like nothing special. It wasn't until I read the reviews that we decided to try it? I am so glad that we did. It is a narrow place but extends right down to the back. It was buzzing and I would therefore recommend booking especially on a weekend. Great choice of food. We had... More

My wife and I are huge fans of Vietnamese food. In London on holiday from Australia, we decided to travel across town to give Sen Viet a try. We walked in and were seated straight away having not earlier booked. We ate the vegetarian spring rolls, pork special Bahn Mi and a mixed rare/cooked beef pho. The food arrived quickly... More

Delicious! Crispy pancake, shaking beef, spring rolls, Aubergine, tamarind ribs and sizzling seafood vegetable platter are all amazing! Highly recommend

Visiting London from Los Angeles and we're in the mood for some Vietnamese foods. This restaurant popped up in the TripAdvisor. Reviews are good, it's close by to the hotel we're staying in so here we are. The good side: We ordered the prawn and pork summer rolls for appetizer and it was amazing. Even better than the ones in... More

Packed tiny friendly restaurant with delicious food & lovely staff. Great atmosphere, although noisy - but mostly students & well-behaved. Fantastic fresh cheap food.

Having just returned from a holiday in Vietnam, we thought we'd do a rapid scout to see if we would have any luck getting anything like some decent Vietnamese food here in London. What a result. We rapidly found out that you can! A very big menu from which we picked dishes to share liberally. There was not a dish... More

Den Viet is amazing, don't be scared of how it looks, this place serves fantastic food. I've had the chargrilled combo and it was so delicious. Everything was on point and the stuff was really friendly. I hope you'll try it and enjoy it as well.

Despite the restaurant heaving and us having no booking we were promised a table in 20 mins. We were seated as promised and it was well worth the wait. Prompt service, superb Vietnamese dishes with no skimping on quantity or flavour and I can honestly say, quality exceeded the price. We will be back as the menu needs more exploring!

Food was great and incredibly good value, as the dishes were all reasonably priced. Would have given 5* but for the inconvenience of their card machine not working. That said, they did ring me to forewarn me this was the case, which was helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
