We took the option of BBQ-ing our own food, which was great except that we absolutely reeked of cooking afterwards! Also, felt a little nervous about cooking raw chicken, especially as we were given utensils to share, along with scissors to cut the meat up - seems like food poisoning waiting to happen. The meal itself was OK, the steak was a little fatty and without a sauce there was not much taste to it. I would highly recommend the starter of paper-wrapped prawns however, absolutely delicious!

There are loads of Vietnamese restaurants up and down this part of the road so choosing which one to go to is really a much of a muchness. However Viet Hoa is pretty decent, the food is great and reasonably priced and the interior is alittle more stylish than the other restaurants around it. I do quite like the bamboo furniture and garish paintings on the walls of the other places though...Service was average, it took a number of attempts to get some water but otherwise it was a nice place for a long meal with friends.

The restaurant was virtually empty, the decor was simple and inviting. The service was so-so, perhaps it was a new waiter. Can't comment much about the food as I ordered soup and roast duck with rice. Plenty more other Vietnamese restaurant on the strip, this one doesn't seem to stand out.

The atmosphere of Viet Hoa is better than the rest of other Vietnamese places on Kingsland Road and the food has something the match the decor. I like it there for a less hectic Vietnamese dining experience without compromising the taste. Friendly service and the bills will never shock you. Good for a laid back date night:)

We tried this for the first time, and were very impressed. The interior is very nice. More of a restaurant feel than many of the other vietnamese restaurants on Kingsland Road. The good was good, presented very well, with large portions. As with many of the other places on this road, the service wasn't great, but a bit better than our usual choice, Sonq Que.
