I had the spicy noodle soup, and my girlfriend had the pho. We also shared the salad rolls. I can’t believe how good my soup was. My girlfriend is a pho nut, and hers was delicious too. (But the spicy noodle broth is unbelievable) I’d...More

We were expecting good things from Sen Viet, however our first impressions were not great. We booked a table for 8:30, but as we walked in (a couple of minutes early) our table was given away to a couple who hadn't even booked. We waited...More

A nice night with family in this vietnam restaurant, the dishes are very well presented and the quality is very good and tasteful the price is right for the quality. The service is average but not important in a place like this.

Vietnam is one of my favourite places to visit, but I find the uk version of Vietnamese never live up to the real thing. Sen Viet however, does! Lovely authentic meal crispy Prawn and pork pancakes are to die for! Wonderful

Excellent food and very reasonably priced. Recommend going with the platter for a bit of everything starter-wise. Summer rolls were delicious as were the Pho and bbq pork. Sen Viet is now my go to Vietnam restaurant in London

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and

time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
