An ok meal was ruined by appalling service by the owners and mistake in the bill. The restaurant is understaff. The bill machine printed the wrong price and we had to pay their mistake. They even threaten to call the police when we challenged the price. Unbelivable.

I dined here with 3 friends on a Saturday night. It was delicious and excellent value for money. Plus a nice change from western food. The restaurant was very busy, I would recommend making a reservation. We spent a total of 218 chf but ordered a lot -- 1 bottle of white wine, 1 green papaya salad (super good), 1... More

I wish I could rate this restaurant with 3.5 stars! I have eventually decided to go for 4 stars mainly because the restaurant offers good value for money and a very friendly service. The food is good and the portions are big enough - we could not finish our dishes, nonetheless my husband and I are no big eaters. The... More

Delicious vietnamese food, authentic and nicely presented. Restaurant is not on a very nice street but certainly worth the trip.

Service is good and fast, you can reserve online and decor looks authentic and romantic. We had a traditional dish of nehms... More

It is difficult to find good Vietnamese food living in Switzerland. Very happy to have discovered this place. Really enjoyed everything and price was ok.

Was our first time experiencing Vietnamese cuisine so we were lost in the menu, so we decided to ask for recommendations to the waiter. From the starters to the main dish, all was an amazing experience. Besides the AWESOME food the service was super friendly. We will definitely recommend this restaurant with great food and good prices.

Good restaurant for couples and families who want to have a quiet dinner. The beer wasn't great, however. Dinner for 2 cost about 110 francs. Staff were very attentive. I suggest the Mongolian Chicken.
