    Very nice, friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. The food was very tasty and quite large serves. The Vietnamese mixed entire was excellent, as was their signature pork hot pot

    Unfortunately, the service was average compared to a previous time. Only 2 staff for nearly 3/4 full restaurant. Disappointing compared to dining there previously.

    If service is appalling, it will never help if the food is good. It is no wonder there were only five tables occupied in this large restaurant on a Saturday evening. Once upon a time it was hard to get a reservation. We stopped going because of bad service and things are worse now than they were 18 months ago. We won’t be back

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Ancient Viet. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We loved making our delicious prawn rice paper rolls which we chose main course to share followed by signature dish roast pork hot pot with coconut rice which did not disappoint. Will revisit soon.

    New staff not great, say yes then have no idea what we had asked for and walked off. Missed out on drink orders due to this.

    On previous visits the service was excellent- this time unfortunately the service was poor- 10 mins to get water after being offered it on arrival, a further 20 mins before we received a menu & then about 30 mins until food was received. They appeared short staffed but waitresses were disinterested- leant over us to serve wine & no apologies when we mentioned slow service. The food was of good quality, but after previous high expectations with a friend who had visited previously we were very disappointed.

    Great food but needs a slightly more varied wine list and some extra staff to keep drinks service flowing. Great decor and superb food
