“Utter Luxury Having AMAZING Local Dim Sum in Greenwich!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Vietnam Oriental is an utter hidden Gem in Greenwich and one where me and my partner devour Dim Sum with great regularity. From the outside you would never know and indeed inside it's very trad/simple in decor but the food is what VO is all about. I have only ever eaten the Dim Sum which delivers superb quality dumplings (read: everything) across the board and in our mind is far superior to the Royal China in Canary Wharf. Amazing value too I cannot recommend highly enough and indeed this was a recommendation from a friend the first time we visited. I can't comment on the main menu (chinese primarily) but the room is usually full of both locals and chinese families tucking in. Ignore some of these other reviews we LOVE this place and look forward to every visit which included yesterday hence my review. If you are local and love Dim Sum then i'll in all likelihood see you there. Not fancy but thats not why you'd eat here!

“It is Chinese and not Vietnamese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I must admit that I looked at the name and not the Menu and expected something from Vietnam. However I got over the disappointment and had a very nice selection of Dim Sum. Food very tasty and the staff we friendly and helpful. It's also very good value for money, we just had Tea but had 6 different Dim Sum and a rice and curry dish and for 2 people it came to just over £30.

“I enjoyed the ducks ;)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I went there with a friend as per her recommendation and it was really a great experience there. I loved the hot & sour soup and I enjoyed the ducks with Noodles. Really very big and tastey food and I recommend it to all visitors to greenwich :)
