Fresh, healthy and most importantly, tasty food from Vietnam; The Little Viet Kitchen started out life as a food blog and supperclub. After a year hosting people from her flat in Angel, Executive Chef Thuy Pham ran a much acclaimed pop-up in Highbury, before focusing her attention on opening her restaurant, The Little Viet Kitchen, in Chapel Market, Islington.

The food is outstanding here. It was very busy on a Saturday evening so the service (apart from the owner) was not great.

But will definitely be returning.

Great food much more original than usual Vietnamese restaurant. As others have said small portions and tables but easy to order more food as it comes quickly. Will be going back.

Lovely but quite expensive for what you get! Really enjoyed the food and service. Also not keen on the adding charity money on the bill thought that was quite rude to be honest.

A great find in the backstreets of the market!
It’s a cozy place (we were elbow to elbow with guests at our neighbouring table). We weren’t quite prepared for the quality of the food 🥘 outstanding!

Hello hello,
This was the first time for us at the The Little Viet Kitchen in Angel.

Friends of us - based nearby - suggested to us and we are so happy finally on Wednesday night to manage to book a table and to enjoy the food.

Everything is super .. stunning.. From the dishes to the team, from the ambience to the amazing gorgeous pottery vessels where food is served. (I am a pottery student and for me the quality of hand made crockery where I am eating my food is essential more and more...

We didn't have much time to enjoy cocktails (we need to go we had our 10 year old boy with us) but we will go back for sure soon.. For more Vietnamese food, some cocktails and yes more time to relax.

Can't wait.

Wishing you a great festivities.

The food in general were quite impressive but the portion relatively was quite small. I understand that its belong to the famous chef but personally i think itsnt that that special. Also what i really dont like about is they charged you for a small extra sauce without mention anything on the menu or even the waiter, he didnt say anything. Frankly speaking i could pay for that but its not cool. When u go to Asian restaurants they even put the bottles of sauce on the table. It was quite ashame.

Beef pho was tasty but isnt worth for £17. Beef wasnt really stewed and a but hard. Other food was tasty but anyway im not going back again.

Excellent and authentic Vietnamese dishes. I would love to return and next time the waiter will hopefully remember to take our order for the starter 😆

This place is such an absolute GEM! The food is absolutely delicious and all of the people that work there were so knowledgable about the menu. They made great recommendations and spoke with such passion. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed too. Our favourite dish was the Lemongrass & Coconut Curry with Slow Braised Beef Short Rib ... the meat was melt in your mouth and the curry flavour was delicious. Highly recommend.

Absolutely delicious food. We had a great evening. Staff very friendly & great atmosphere. Only issue was that the drinks took longer to come than the food, despite being ordered before the food.
We’ll definitely return.
