Not authentic, as a Vietnamese, I must admit, but they make it very tasty, and when it comes to food, what else should we really care for :)

However, I totally enjoyed my visit to Saigon. The place is cosy and quite, in spite of its location, few... More

I read some rather good and a few even excellent reviews about this Vietnamese restaurant above McDonald"s. Well, we have a very different experience. The food was more or less okay, but noodles, noodles,noodles. A large bowl of soup was set in the middle of the table and the three of us had to find out how to get that... More

We were trying Vietnamese cuisine for the first time and we really liked it. The portions were in quantity and they also had some very good cocktail options. The ambiance was good too with lot of seating arrangement and spacious. The only small let down was the service, they were taking too long to come back and take the orders..But... More
