White and airy, gently elevated above street level, and with one long window perching you above Liverpool Road, Viet Garden is a lovely space. Suited better to its Islington setting, perhaps, than the rough and ready Kingsland Road spots might be.
The food is similar, though. Dishes range from summer rolls, pho noodle soups and fried tofu in lemongrass to deep-fried seabass in fish sauce and mango, beef fried in a tangy tamarind sauce and bo tai chanh - a cold dish of rare beef steak with herbs and lime juice. Vietnamese style noodles also prove popular.
Keep an eye out for lunch specials and good-value set menus.

Hidden away behind Upper Street, this Vietnamese restaurant is worth a little extra walking time to get to the Pho! Generous portions and nice family feel to the restaurant, although if you go at certain times you may be the only people in there and in truth the decor is perhaps not the most amazing you'll find. I'd still go again just for the good Pho.
Excellent Vietnamese in between Angel and Highbury & Islington! The food was tasty and rich. I have been to many Vietnamese restaurants by kingsland road and I was surprised to say this was probably the best I have had in London. It brings a local feel with a very friendly staff. We ordered a variety of different dishes, such as; spring and summer rolls, beef pho, beef, pancake, and the famous Cha ca thang long (Vietnamese style fish with turmeric and dill). We ended the night with a Vietnamese coffee. I am really looking forward to go again!
