Why We Think The Viet Hoa is the Best Vietnamese Restaurant in London!
We have been enjoying Vietnamese food at the Viet Hoa Cafe since it first opened in Englefield Road well over a decade ago - in what was then an old swimming baths converted into a Vietnamese Community Centre in the heart of Hackney. The cafe was an instant success serving fabulously fresh and very reasonably priced, tasty Vietnamese dishes to a 90's Hackney crowd. We became regular customers and loyally followed the owners when the restaurant moved to its current location in Kingsland Road, Shoreditch - ten years have passed and it's still one of our favourite Vietnamese restaurants.
Lots has changed in that time - but then again, much remains the same. The decor has been transformed from a 'bright' Hanoi style cafe with Formica tables and stackable chairs, Vietnamese prints and music to it's current incarnation as a hip Shoreditch restaurant / bar. With free WiFi and your choice of music playlist, designer magazine library and interior decor to match - but some things don't change - the food is as good as it ever was.
