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

Although I am not a specialist in Vietnamese food in particular, I do know the South East Asian kitchen quite well, As I have traveled and tried many different places around the world I quite fancy this restaurant. Service is good and fast, you can reserve online and decor looks authentic and romantic. We had a traditional dish of nehms... More

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.

Don't expect it to be 100% authentic vietnamese, but it's the closest you can get in Lausanne. The food in general is very good. Try the "Porc croustillant" or the beef-shrimp combo with rice paper that you roll yourself. Service is not up to Swiss standards. The servers sometimes do not understand well the language but somehow it usually works... More

If you look for good Vietnamese food and money is not an issue, I'd recommend this place. The terrace is fake, covered sidewalk next to busy traffic light.

Restaurant no Vietnamese people as customers so it means what it means. I m vietname and I like the food there but the Portions are Completely crazy too Expensive and that small That you ll have to Order 322 other plates. Trust Me only tourist people with big Purse could go there.
