When it originally opened in 2005, Que Viet was one of only a few Vietnamese restaurants located in the region of London now colloquially known as the Vietnamese district. Today, it is one of the most established and popular restaurants of its kind, consistently maintaining excellent standards of cuisine. Hailing from Hanoi, the family who own the restaurant are passionate about Vietnamese cuisine and wanted to introduce their traditional recipes to the Western world. Since opening eight years ago, Que Viet has made a name for itself by focusing on Northern Vietnamese food, as opposed to Southern Vietnamese cuisine, which is typically sweeter.

Que Viet offers its diners a truly authentic experience every time they visit. The team of chefs, who are all originally from Vietnam, have put together a menu comprising healthy, traditional dishes, almost all of which are gluten free. The chefs pride themselves on using only the best, freshest ingredients every day; if their prized produce runs out, then dishes are simply taken off the menu. After all, all good things must come to an end, and these chefs just aren't willing to compromise on quality.

My partner and I began with the recommended starters; Hanoi monkfish and lime-cured goat. Both were immaculately presented and tasted divine. The fish had been marinated in dill, turmeric and galangal, and cooked to perfection for a delicate flavour. The steamed goat had also been infused with an elegant blend of herbs and galangal, and was served with an impeccable combination of ingredients including fresh mint, coriander, chillies and sweet pineapple chunks, creating an outstanding fusion of flavours.

For our mains, we chose one of the most popular dishes of both the restaurant and Vietnam itself - pho tai nam, a fragrant beef-based flat-noodle soup which was refreshingly light and simply delicious. My partner opted for another set staple of the menu - irresistible wok-fried asparagus and scallops in a rich garlic sauce, accompanied by a side of fluffy white rice. These dishes were wonderfully enhanced by a sumptuous wine and eventually saw us leave as very satisfied customers.
