Viet Cafe is (unsurprisingly) a Vietnamese restaurant based on Haymarket, near Piccadilly Circus tube station.
A cute small restaurant with pictures of Vietnam on the wall and traditional straw hats. Viet Cafe accepts a Tastecard, which gives you 241 if you order two courses (cheapest first) – we paid £15 for two courses, a drink and service, which is a bargain. Even without the Tastecard, the menu is reasonably priced.
To start we had the Goi Tom (soft rolls with prawns, rice and salad), Muc Rang Muoi (calamari) and Bo La Lot (rolls with minced beef wrapped in betel leaves). I must say that the calamari (not a typically Vietnamese dish!) was one of the best I have ever had.
Moving on to mains, we had the pho with prawn, scallops and vegetables, the Bo Luc Lac (sirloin beef strips) and noodles with beef.
Lovely service and good food.
