Nice food, pleasant surroundings, friendly staff

We dined there twice in a recent visit, and both times were good. Perhaps not as authentic as vietnamese in other EU countries as the dutch like Indonesian style kitchen, but still fresh and tasty, and considering the location, not too expensive either.

Been here yesterday. Tried "pho" but not real Vietnamese way of cooking and taste. A little bit disappointed. Not recommend!

Biggest oysters I've ever had. They were delicious as well. The only thing we ate were the oysters so i have no review on the rest of the food. Owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. My husband and I will definitely be returning to try more options.

We received a very warm welcome, excellent choices of food, we went for the set meal of spring rolls, chicken & pappaya salad, a spicy soup, fried fish, garlic vegetables and spicy prawns served with rice. Great value at €45 for 2 people...Drinks were reasonable too at €5 for a pint of beer. Would definately return.

Myself and hubby came here. THe staff were a bit luke warm first. We ordered lots of food too much to mention. The fish was amazing. Eventually we had a good laugh with the staff. Alot of it is cultural so you have to understand the culture as most of the time it is not done in an offensive way.... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
