The food was rather good and service was friendly. Location is utilitarian and aesthetic is standard. Overall: exactly what I wanted from a good lunch. Reason for 4/5? There was no "wow" factor in the food. I liked it, but it won't leave a lasting impression.

Nice alternative to Currywurst and pork, good price for big servings. The springrolls were fresh and crunchy, the chicken was spicy enough but not too much savioury. Nice location in a courtyard away from the street noise.

Excellent food from Vietnam. We visited this restaurant 3 times in August 2014 for lunch, all with great succes. Good food at a reasonable price, friendly service, and a nice atmosphere in the outdoor areas.

I enjoyed my food here, it was initially difficult to attract their attention to get a menu and order food but after that everything was quick and enjoyed the meal.

However, once we placed the order, the food came very (very) fast. Nice presentation, hot, tasty and good value for money. Plenty... More

We enjoyed good portions of well cooked food with lovely flavours for a very good price. The service was good and staff were friendly. Very happy we found this place to provide us with more variety while in Berlin. Would definitely recommend.

It was really good and enjoyable with great prices and great amounts of food. It had great decoration and it was a really cozy place. We ordered their duck, which was a speciality. We had noodles as well, and it was absolutely great!
