Quite a small restaurant, full of flavour and atmosphere. Good service with very friendly and helpful staff. We had a delicious meal, washed down with cold Vietnamese beers - very enjoyable indeed.

There are an abundance of trendy Vietnamese restaurants and cafes in London now .. this one may not follow the trend but offers more honest, authentic Vietnamese food at a fair price. Traditional pho, a range of spring and summer spring rolls, noodles and curries and my favourite..freshly brewed Vietnamese coffee. The staff were welcoming and attentive .. and engaged... More

I have been in this restaurant several time as the food is nice and relatively cheap. On the other hand i will think again about it as last time the service was really rude! My mum ordered a dish which wasn't advertised as spicy, as any of them, and when got it she was a bit surprised by the level... More

I went to this restaurant due to the review on Trip Advisor, I was really disappointed, the food is not amazing, the atmosphere is gloomy and the service ok. Well, I will not come back for sure

During my 4-day stay in London I went to Sen Viet twice. I lived in Vietnam six months so I know something of authentic Viet food. ;) The food was great and the price was right. Would definitely have lunch or dinner there again.

Lovely authentic food and a very extensive menu. A little scruffy and not the classiest of places but worth the visit for the food! The mango spring rolls are a stunner.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
