Top-quality Vietnamese cuisine prepared with care in a contemporary diner at Charing Cross.
Non Viet has the look of a fast food eatery from the outside, but once through the door and beyond the red curtains it feels calm and welcoming, quirkily decorated with wood panelling, hats, fans and bicycles. Order one of the fresh fruit juices (choices include pineapple and carrot and passion fruit) or the restaurant’s signature avocado smoothie, then start your meal with pork betel with vermicelli and salad in sweet and sour fish sauce dressing and a sprinkle of roasted crushed peanuts. The tofu coconut curry (also available with chicken or seafood) made with vegetables and lemongrass is a stand-out main course, bursting with flavour and one of the many great options for vegetarians. Every dish tastes fresh and thoughtfully put together and there is an embarrassment of riches to choose from including slow-cooked caramelised dishes, noodles and pho noodle soup. Wash all this healthy food down with some Vietnamese coffee, served with condensed milk for an end of meal sugar rush. Only in its second year, Non Viet deserves many return visits with food this great.
