    Loved being here today. Small place, full of people that know how good this place is. Turned out to be great with an adventurous five year old and there were plenty of dishes with flavour but not too much chilli for him. Desserts broke the rule of Asian puddings being rubbish. The couple we had were fabulous!

    False advertisement. It was showed on Google Reviews as a fine dining Vietnamese place but the food didn't taste Vietnamese at all. The menu and all staff was in Chinese.

    This is a nice little spot for a pre show lunch. We tried the set menu and added some a la carte options too. The tastiest course by far was the dessert. Unfortunately the starters and mains were a bit disappointing, presentation was lovely but the food lacked seasoning and that unique Vietnamese flavour. It was all a bit bland and meh. We ordered the beef cheek pho and pork belly, the King prawn summer roll and the scallop carpaccio. The value was good, pho seemed to be most popular order at other tables. I’m not entirely sure whether we’ll return unless we can’t find any other good Vietnamese to satisfy the craving, but I would come back for dessert. I’d sadly only be able to recommend it with some caveats to temper expectations.

    First thing you notice when walking in the door is the smell of a sweaty old clothes that's been sitting too long in a gym bag. We did however quickly adjust to the smell since the door was propped open and allowed for fresh air to flow. 3 of us order from their "2 course lunch" option but... only one of us gets the promotional price and beverage that comes along with it because only one of us said it out loud. Apparently HOLDING up and POINTING at the 2 items from that specific menu didn't qualify. At a table of 6 people - 1 appetizer that had 3 chicken wings on it came out and sat lonely and untouched for a good 5-6 minutes before 2 mains came out. About another 5 minutes goes by and 2 more appetizers with 3 mains come out. If you're keeping track here... that's 2 out of 6 get their mains. Then a few minutes later 3 of the 6 get their mains. We've waited long enough and so we dig in family style as best we can since 2 out of the 6 course are Pho (not really shareable). We're still scooping and sharing what is shareable the waiter comes to tell us the 6th person's main is not available. It's been perhaps 20 minutes at this point. Why did it take SO LONG for us to be informed that something is not available. We don't order anything else because at this point we are so disappointed with the service, the pacing and then to be let down by the food. The website and menu cover page boasts a fantastic chef with so much experience and expertise. We did not get that at all.

    Fantastic food. We sat downstairs and were the first diners down there as upstairs was full. We had a lovely circular table for 5 of us. We ordered and ate our starters and then ordered and ate main courses. It was all delicious and the service was exemplary.

    Wonderful dishes even without trying the Pho which most people go for. Very fresh, inventive and beautifully presented. And gorgeous tastes. And don't miss the deserts which are very imaginative and unusual, especially for an Asian restaurant. It's a bit crowded and noisy, especially later in the evening, since it's pretty small.

    I met with 3 friends at Go Viet and we thought the food was excellent, Small upstairs with limited seats but we had a very enjoyable evening. There are seats downstairs but we sat upstairs. Was very busy with turnover of tables so people didn't have to wait very long. Very popular.

    Very good Pho noodles and modernised Vietnamese tapas. The soup is clear and noodle of of silky texture. The ingredient is just cooked but not over cooked, wagyu rare beef is super tender. We also ordered Summer rolls, spring rolls and octopus salsa for starter. All were very tasty. Probably the best spring rolls and octopus we had in London so far. We definitely will revisit when we go to South Kensington.

    The beef cheeks dish was horrible - absolutely tasteless (super super bland with uncooked veggies) and rubbery (felt like I was chewing on a flip flop).
