    A traditional take on Vietnamese cuisine. Must try the Catfish. Their signature dish is OK not as good as some of their other dishes. Service was spot on and quick. Make sure to book!

    Anchovied chicken wings with honey glaze are AMAZING. Juicy, meaty, sticky, delicious! (Not an anchovy fan myself, I was happy the taste is not that strong.) Go for it!

    Still my favourite Vietnamese in London. Best phos in town (try the Saigon Pho for ultimate more'ishness). Chilli squid and Vietnamese spring rolls are fantastic as well. BRING BACK THE PRAWN HEADS.

    Not the best but pretty reasonably priced. The mango lassi is great. Read our full review on Scoff London: http://scofflondon.com/restaurants/viet-grill-review-e2/

    Spring rolls have this fantastic crunchy exterior and hidden menu gems like okra and aubergine curry are a treat.

    Real good viet food! Make a reservation if you're a large table, otherwise it will be impossible to eat here without splitting your group.

    Monkfish is to die for. Order the summer rolls to share for the table. Everyone gets to roll their own.

    Great Vietnamese style food. The pork butt is a highlight in the starters and Com Saigon is my favourite in the mains.

    The Bang Xeo is delicious but way bigger than a starter even though it is on the starter list.

    Pricier than the other Kingsland road establishments but justified by high quality food and nicer environment.

    "Trendy," but unauthentic Vietnamese food. Walk further down Kingsland for the real deal.

    Great food but servings of main portions are small. Noodles are a good size though! £34 per person between 3 of us.

    Can't beat the Recession Set Meal (starter and main for £9.50). The chilli squid & Bun Cha Hanoi (barbecued pork marinated in lemongrass) are my faves.

    Tasty food but we were very rudely rushed out of the restaurant almost before we had finished. You'd think a £40 spend would buy you more than 30 mins in a restaurant on a Wednesday. Go somewhere else
