About Viet Grill

About Viet Grill

Our modern yet cosy Vietnamese restaurant in Shoreditch emulates the hustle and bustle of busy Vietnamese life, and is the perfect backdrop to serve up the light and aromatic flavours of Vietnamese cuisine. Enjoy slurping a spicy Pho at our Pho-bar and delight in our unique menu of authentic dishes and Vietnamese inspired cocktails. As at all of our Vietnamese restaurants, we pride ourselves on offering you an authentic taste of Vietnam using well sourced ingredients from the British Isles whenever possible.

We have a saying at Viet Grill; 'to make the simplest of dishes taste good you need the ingredients of time and passion' and we have plenty of both. Every dish, from our street food snacks to our a la carte delicacies, is lovingly prepared with this saying in mind. Take our classic beef Pho for example, which takes over 18 hours to make! Likewise, our wine list is carefully selected by renowned wine writer Malcolm Gluck to match the aromatic dishes on the menu.

What’s more, we also offer a Vietnamese takeaway service and can deliver to your home or office. So, if you’re in the Hoxton or Shoreditch areas and are looking for sophisticated Asian cuisine on the go, be sure to get in touch!

Viet Grill review
9/10
Tucked away on Kingsland Road in Hoxton is the lovely Viet Grill. We were recently invited along to try out the menu and we couldn’t wait to tuck in. Viet Grill belongs to the Vietnamese Kitchen family (a chain of three different sister restaurants). Having never tried Vietnamese food before but being huge fans of all other Asian foods, we didn’t know what to expect but we had high hopes after reading some reviews online. Upon arrival, I couldn’t help but fall in love with the interior. The walls are covered in bold leafy print with low-lit, hanging industrial lights; instantly making you feel warm and comfortable after escaping the cold and wet streets of London just outside....

This restaurant was recommended by a Vietnamese friend so I came here for my birthday with a party of 7 and we had a great time. I've lived in south east asia for 7 years and felt like I was still there when dining at Viet Grill. The food was authentic tasting, fresh and served very fast. Our waiter was professional but also lots of fun which made for a great evening. I also appreciated being allowed to bring my own home baked-cake on this special occasion!

Really poor food. Tasteless, gloopy, dry. Not sure why they are trying to produce so many different sorts of dishes, when doing fewer better would make it a much better experience. A real shame, as it promised more

We have dined with you many times. On Saturday we brought 2 friends who were visiting from Scotland. Sadly, although the food was of a high standard, the service was absolutely appalling. I really felt for the staff - they were clearly extremely stressed and under-staffed. All around the restaurant there were customers waiting to be served, some were clearly frustrated and angry. We sat down at 8.10, when they eventually cleared a table for us. (We had booked for 8) We ordered 4 cocktails, we waited until 8.45 until 3 of them arrived. My partner then had to ask another twice before his drink finally arrived at 9pm! The bar area was strewn with dirty glassware and tables were not being cleared. We also witnessed instances of the restaurant staff arguing amongst themselves over the stressful working environment. It was sad to witness this in a restaurant we have always enjoyed. Very disappointing overall.

Understaffed and difficult to get what we needed. This was frustrating. Very noisy (to the point of discomfort). But really excellent food.

The food is just delicious, best Bun Cha by far I’ve had since Hanoi. It is too loud however, but so are many crowded places in London... tuning the music a bit down might be good though. But once again, this shouldn’t stop anyone from visiting the place!

A bit too loud, more most places are to be honest. Food is really good, bun cha is as close as it gets to Hanoi ones... congrats!

The quality of service was shocking. Bringing out all the food (starters and mains) all at once so that the table was completely crammed was appalling and the staff couldn't have cared less when asked for this to stop. It was uncomfortable. Rubbish was left on tables as staff wandered about. As someone who held a pre-wedding event here for 24 people in 2016 and who has come to your restaurant 15+ times over the last 3 years and introduced many people to your restaurant, I was shocked by how woeful the service has become.
