I was curious about vietnamese food and Welcome was recommended. The staff is very friendly although the atmosphere it's not that charming. I recommend to try the vietnamese tasting menu and try different specialties.

We waited for about 30 min until someone gave us a menu, another 15 min until I asked THEM for a drink. Whole meal was like this. They seemed hateful to be honest. Food was respectable, but I would definitely try another place and not come back here. I had the shrimp curry and chili and it was pretty good!... More

We were looking for a Vietnaemese restaurant near our hotel and came across this place on the Zeedijk street. The food was basically good if not average (considered street food in Vietnam). The Iced tea was refreshing. We had fried rolls as a starter, but than we were surprised to have them again as a side dish in both our... More

Nothing to rave about here: Ambiance is ok, just as the quality of the food. Given the number of excellent Asian restaurants in Amsterdam, I'd say: go elsewhere.

Located int the Zeedjik restaurant district, this was a restaurant actually randomly chosen while walking there. It has proven to be exactly the right choice: great food- I thought I was in heaven-I have ordered sea food, but they do serve a very large variety of food, very good and detailed service (friendly, informative & fast). Prices although not exactly... More

My second visit to this restaurant. In 2012 it was ok. Not fancy, but decent food. This time it was darker and sort of smelly. Food was ok, but the ambience was really not so nice.

I was here with a friend last weekend. I love Vietnamese food but this was very disappointing. Very touristy, busy, personnel are too busy to be really friendly although I am sure they are. The starter, rolls and fish cakes were good but for a main we ordered a noodles dish and got rice. The waitress was very quick to... More

Wandering through Zeedijk street, we decided to try this one - it looks pleasant from outside, half a floor over the street. Inside, inviting Asian flavors persuaded us to stay. Besides, there were few visitors, mostly Vietnamese, which is a good sign, obviously. The menu is really extensive, one with dish photos, raging from pork to fish, oysters and frogs.... More

We went in later that normal and ordered the 3 course set menu washed down with a few Tsingtao's. All the food was great, especially the lemongrass chili chicken pictured. I will definitely return to that restaurant.
