Very disappointing

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... read 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.

Needed something light to eat, wandered around Chinatown and found this place via the Zeedijk entrance. Great summer rolls, fried spring rolls and beef pho. Just what I needed on a cold evening. Prices were on the low side - pretty much what you'd pay in London. Nothing was too salty, and service was great. Will return when back in... More

We had 3 starters, all very tasty. The chicken sate skewers were slightly dry. Main course, V88 was fab as was chicken with lemon grass and chill. Would recommend this place. Price was reasonable

I have travelled extensively to Vietnam and tried Pho numerous times and the Pho in this restaurant tastes nothing like the real one! A real disappointing experience for the taste plus the rude attitude from the staffs left such a bad impression that I will definitely not go back there again.

I am not a Vietnamese specialist, so to me it tasted similar to Chinese food. Tried the crispy chicken which was tasty.

This Vietnamese restaurant is a must for us every time we visit Amsterdam. In contrast to all other Asian restaurants on the Zeedijk (it has an entrance here as well as on the Geldersekade), this restaurant is spacious, well aired and not crammed. Food is authentic and delicious every time, service is friendly, the menu extensive and affordable. It is... More

I was looking for a Vietnamese Restaurant and this one was the only i found. I orderd the Bun (12 Euro) with springrolls, beef and it was very tasty. The pho (11 Euro) was little bit too small, to few noodles and small pieces of meat anyway since this restaurant was the only vietnamese restuarant i went 3 times in... More
