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

This restaurant has very extensive menu, which already casts some doubt on food quality. I had Pho and was very disappointed. The broth was not at all Pho broth but a mixture of other noodles. They must have used the same broth for all kinds of dishes but if you really know Viet food, Pho broth has very distinctive taste... More

Genuine vietnamese specialties. Fresh food! Excellent service! A bonus if you can have a table in front of the canal.

This a fine decent restaurant with an extensive menu with everything you would expect from seafood, chicken, pork , beef, phos, vegetarian and appetizers. We liked it so much we went back again. Loved the papaya salad - simple but tasty and sensitively spiced. Enjoyed the sauteed oysters, the pineapple fried rice, seafood with vegetables, pancake- all competently produced. If... More
