A small restaurant with Vietnam cuisine whose food is awesome. I started with crab soup and then had roasted duck with peanut sauce. Both were delicious however, watch out as the soup is very hot and needs to cool before it is eatable. The wine selection is limited but good and reasonably priced. The ambience is basic but the staff... More

Came here with two friends and we had a nice meal. Flavours were good and the portions were reasonable. The service was friendly and atmosphere was relaxed. It's a cute little spot tucked away in Galt and was a nice dinner. Not extraordinary, but a fun time and a good meal. I'd go back.

Went here with friends on a Sunday evening. The place filled quickly and with only one server it was rather slow service but worth the wait. We tried several items including mango salad, crispy duck with orange sauce, pad Thai and mango chicken. Everything was nicely presented and delicious. Enjoyed a Tiger beer that went well with the food. Highly... More

Stopped there to eat and tried the duck, which was reasonably priced. Friendly, helpful service and the establishment is kept quite clean. No complaints from this customer!

Food was nice. Soup with coconut milk was amazing and mango salad was one of the best mango salads we ever had. Service was fast but the menu was not flexible. Drink selection was average. Atmosphere casual but not a dive. I will go her again

Have had the crispy duck here at least 25 times over the past few years and it is always just delicious and superbly cooked Spring rolls and shrimp rolls also very good

I ordered the coconut soup. The menu promised lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and chicken. Sounded yummy. Sadly, it was uncontaminated by coconut. No discernible coconut milk. Certainly no young coconut juice (as might be expected in a Thai dish) and no coconut meat, either. Why was this billed as coconut soup? As for the other ingredients touted in the menu...not... More

It was average the first time I ate there, the second time was disappointed. I ordered their duck meal, the rice was so hard and the duck even harder.
