Top-quality Vietnamese cuisine prepared with care in a contemporary diner with a relaxed atmosphere

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Towards the Charing Cross end of Sauchiehall Street, Non Viet has established a relaxed, informal atmosphere, with a menu that invites adventurous dining. From the squid and mango salad starter to the fried ice-cream dessert, the choices are distinctive and combine familiar ingredients and imaginative combinations. The slow-cooked caramelised dishes, for example, explore a fresh take on sweet and savoury tastes, while the seafood selection offers expertly cooked squid, catfish as well as prawn and scallops. The generous portions of the starters are a hearty meal in themselves, but much of the food’s quality comes from the attention paid to the details – the rice and noodles are cooked with care, and the service never becomes intrusive. Their Vietnamese traditional coffees provides a strong caffeine kick, and a transportative taste of the country, helpfully evoked by décor that doesn’t fall into kitsch or cliché. While the spices have a subtle and nuanced flavour, the quality and quantity of the ingredients makes Non Viet a great spot for both a change of taste and a filling, warming meal.
