2 for 1 at Viet Cafe

Dinner is served in style at Viet Cafe in Manchester. The venue introduces eager diners to the delights of traditional Vietnamese street food with its range of homemade dishes.

The generous menu pays respectful homage to the nutritious and flavoursome fare of Vietnam. The colourful and well-executed plates of food showcase the precise and accomplished cooking taking place behind the scenes. Inquisitive patrons are presented with a list of starter options; each bringing its unique balance of flavours to the pass and accompanied by a homemade table dipping sauce to further enhance the natural ingredients contained within.

Viet Cafe’s simple quartet of appetisers fall under the distinct headings of khai vi, goi cuon summer rolls, cha nem spring rolls, and goi Vietnamese salad. Each dish brings its own introduction to authentic Vietnamese street food and invites uninitiated palates to sample fine foodstuffs such as marinated quail in lemongrass and shallots, and tofu with fresh Vietnamese herbs.

The mains are equally as plentiful and authentic. Broth flat noodle dishes are accompanied by produce such as brisket of beef, chicken slices, or juicy prawns. Alternative options for main course include Mon Canh broth soup, such as the sour catfish variety, or try one of the many mon com rice dishes instead. Fans of seafood will be drawn to the specials on display at the close of the menu. Conclude a delicious and healthy savoury course with an indulgent dessert in the form of almond cake with dark chocolate.

The family-run restaurant is decorated in a contemporary style with hints of Oriental influences dotted here and there to authenticate the cuisine. Indeed, the setting provides the perfect backdrop in which to relax with family and friends over a delicious homemade plate of Vietnamese street fare.

Arrive at Simply Viet Cafe in Manchester and receive a warm welcome from the affable waiting staff poised and ready to offer you the most colourful of Southeast Asian dining experiences.

    " Slightly off the beaten track from the city centre, Saigon Lotus really is one of Manchester's best kept secrets. The food is flavoursome, plentiful and feels wonderfully authentic. The staff are happy to cater to any whim and are always polite and pleasant.
    Even without a Tastecard, the prices are reasonable, but when the card is used you're in for a real bargain. I will definitely be recommending this place to friends and family. "
