Viet Hoa Cafe

One of Kingsland Road's many Vietnamese restaurants, this spot is a longstanding part of the 'Pho Mile', as this area is affectionately known. It's set over two floors, with the cafe upstairs and the 'Mess' downstairs, where diners can cook their own food to suit their preference on the individual infrared grill on each table. 

The menu blends traditional and modern Vietnamese cooking, whilst incorporating influences from elsewhere, too. Examples range from summer rolls, banh toms and pho noodle soups to pan-Asian salads, wok tossed chicken dishes and a tender beef stew with chilli, lemongrass and sesame seeds. There's certainly authenticity when it comes to the Vietnamese coffee though - it's suitably sweet and strong. 

There's a delivery facility too, should you live locally.

Not bad Vietnamese food. Is a little more pricey than others nearby. BYOB is definitely a plus!


Although the inside of this place is nicely decorated and the idea of BYOB is appealing we had a terrible meal here on Friday mid December.

We had booked a table and when we turned up were shown downstairs where it was empty.
It took forever for the waiter to bring menus and then even longer to bring glasses for our drinks. We had to go and find him to order our food.
All the starters we had were bland and cold (of which we sent 2 back). After this complaint - with barely an apology - we thought the mains would be hot at least but a few mains came out cold again! 
The only thing I can recommend is the duck main which was hot and yummy! 
We got the service removed and the cold main dish but that was all that was offered and actually came to quite a pricey bill seeing as we brought all the wine and beer with us!
Not impressed and will not be returning

I like Viet Hoa, I've been here two times. The food is really great, and that's the important thing at the end of the day. When we went last week, we got a big selection of starters- duck, spring rolls, chicken satay... everything was tasty and well prepared. The service here isn't terribly good though (you get ignored quite a bit, drinks don't arrive, it's tough to get the bill). That said, it's not unfriendly. I'd return, but would love to see the service be sharpened up a bit.
