Good Vietnamese restaurant

Duck is always good in here and the size of the portion is perfect. Only minus is that time to time is quite full and it is not easy to find room. Otherwise one of the best restaurants in Erlangen

I like the food there pretty much, There are many vegetarian options. The service is fast and friendly. It is mostly full, so booking in advance is advisable.

I liked it. Everything we had was good, although not quite the flavours that I experienced in Vietnam, but I am eager to try more. The duck we had was really well cooked, tender and juicy. The waiter/owner got our order wrong but was happy to fix it and he was really smily and friendly.

I eat here once a fortnight. Cheap, tasty Vietnamese/Chinese/Thai food. Always satisfied. Fresh spring rolls and coconut juice are my favourite picks.

Went on the recommendation of a colleague. Small and typically oriental with a really welcoming owner. I had a quick read of trip advisor prior to my visit and was taken by a review of dish 99 duck in peanut sauce so I opted for the dish. I have to say it was every bit as delicious as described cooked... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant last week on Thursday and had great service with some delicious food so we decided to go again on Tuesday of this week. When we got there, they were still closed since it was only 5:20 so we went for a walk close to the university. We returned once we knew it... More

After my first encounter with Phó (the beef noodle soup) on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City, i wonder if i ever found one in Germany. There are so many Asian restaurants owned by Vietnamese around this area anyway. But no, they tend to offer full range of South-East Asian food. So this restaurant was the first one I've... More

Never cared much for duck. Found it OK I suppose.... I try not to get too excited thinking about it but this is one of the most outstanding dishes I've ever eaten. 99 on the menu being the best. The Mekong are duck roasting masters. I would give my right arm to know their secret recipe. 9 trips to Erlangen... More
