Blending glamour and comfort, London’s Com Viet is an authentic Vietnamese restaurant in an enviably central location. Moments from the theatres and bars of the West End, Com Viet is an ideal pre- and post-theatre booking, providing delicious food, a full drinks list and a cosy setting all at once. Friendly service is a Com Viet standard, the team working hard to create a relaxing atmosphere and provide everything their guests need for a memorable dining experience. Decked out in dark wood and brown leather, exposed brick, gilt mirrors and crystal chandeliers, Com Viet’s dining room is atmospheric, with a touch of Eastern romance, the aroma of Vietnamese cooking tempting you before you even open the menu. Prepared fresh every day, using high quality ingredients selected for their authenticity, Com Viet’s cuisine is entirely taken from recipes passed down through the generations and given new life by the restaurant’s experienced chefs. Com Viet accepts bookings from Sunday to Thursday.

Just a stone throw from Chinese food haven, Garrick Street, Com Viet brings another taste of authentic Asian cuisine to the West End, these time in the form of Vietnamese.

A cosy, no-fuss restaurant around the corner from Covent Garden, Com Viet brings a knowledge of fresh, Vietnamese flavours to a menu of extensive variety. Their lunch menu, super reasonably priced at £9 including a soft drink, a starter and a main, is popular and means that booking ahead is worthwhile. The salt and pepper squid is light and crispy served with a garnish of garlic and chilli which packs a punch. The slow cooked pork served with rice is tasty; the pork melts in your mouth in a rich garlic and fish sauce.

The flavours here aren’t super modern or sophisticated; if you are wanting cutting edge Asian cuisine, head elsewhere, as Com Viet is all about the traditional, comforting big flavours. And you can’t get more comforting than their warming Pho which is perfect on a cold winter’s day, served traditionally with a side of garnishes so you can tailor your own with chilli, coriander and mint.  

For a working lunch or a quick pre- theatre dinner, Com Viet is a definite winner.
