Khong Ten is a new restaurant on Pico in West LA that serves modern Vietnamese food. The menu has shared plates like mussels in a red curry sauce, excellent shrimp fritters, and bigger dishes like hoisin beef sirloin. The food is pretty good, but the service was a bit disorganized on our first visit. They also have a nice Happy Hour at the bar, and some cocktails, like the tequila, Campari, orgeat, and pineapple-filled Tropical Affair are great, so there’s potential for this to become a solid neighborhood spot. We’ll be back to see how things shake out.
Khong Ten is permanently closed.
