Beaut little Vietnamese Restaurant in Cologne

Came twice to this little restaurant both for dinner. In the first visit we tried the traditional Pho. It lacked the hearty beef flavor like the traditional authentic Vietnamese Pho however the servings were generous. The 2nd time we came back we ordered various dishes to share and we were totally... read more

Like most of the food in this area, lots of it and very bland. Don't understand the dumbing down of ethnic food to suit tourists or locals, you lose the ethnicity and authenticity of the food....Simples! Nit much more to say really, doesnt resemble and Vietnamese food I've ever tasted anywhere!

I lived in Germany for 10 years, and tried many of the local restaurants Cologne had to offer, but this is by far one of the best! The lunch time menu and evening menu seem to be the same to be, but the lunch one is half the cost. Delicious food served fast, in lovely bowls and the staff are... More

We enjoyed our lunch here. Friendly staff, good value for money. Interior looked a bit worn out though.

We had a lovely meal here, not in the same class as another Vietnamese restaurant not too far away but it's far busier and clearly a little more commercial so that'll explain that. One other contributor has slammed this place as inauthentic and their attitude towards the staff and the food says way more about them than it does this... More

Exellent vietnamese food, nice prices and very friendly and nice service. What more can you ask for? In the weekend, you probably have to reserve table, this place is popular. And not let the simp interior fool you, this place i well worth a visit.

My friends love the beef pho (they have small & big portion) and it comes with fresh herbs, while my fav is grilled chicken lemon grass (If I'm not... More

We booked a table for two on a Saturday while ago, and were welcomed by friendly staff. Options on the menu were many, both meat, fish and vegetarian. Although there was a big group of celebrators on the next table, we got the food really fast, and it was delicious. We wanted it spicy, it could have been spicier too,... More
