What's with the whole dumbing down of Asian food these days? They all seem to be a mixture of Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese, none of it done particularly well. I think it's called jumping on the band wagon! The food was ok, nothing wrong with it at all, it's just not authentic Vietnamese...Simples!

I love vietnamese cooking, but this time I am very disappointed. Food was not good, sauce was liquid (?), even the rice was not fine. But above all, just after we arrived we were asked for our order, did not get any vietnamese chips like on some other tables and were served 3 minutes after ordering (??). We were both... More

The atmosphere is very nice, the service is very quick ( with no patience though), the starters were nice looking and tasty, the mains were delicious and huge, the desserts - well I would avoid them, they do not look nice (at all) and they taste avarage. The prices are low regarding the quantity!

This little restaurant has become a regular haunt for me during my stay in Brussels. Friendly and attentive service (it helps if you speak a little French, but the menu is also in English) The spice in the food is pretty mild by Australian standards so ask for extra spicy if you're that way inclined. Wide range of dishes, the... More

This is definitely my favourite asian resto in Brussels. In spite of the rather dull name, this resto serves excellent asian thai-style food. Interior feels very nice and fresh. Service is friendly and quick (usually). Try the "poulet grille au citronelle"...(but everything is good).

I had dinner here with friends on a Saturday night, so the place was full. Only good words about the food, but the service was disappointing. The waiter did not even have the patient to listen to us to finish our order and we ended up with different sides than requested. We did finally receive what we wanted, but we... More

I am regular customer and each time I drop by to have lunch or dinner I leave the restaurant at the end of the meal with a satisfied mind and stomach - for good value for money :) The dishes are simply delicious (some are obviously just common viet or thai dishes but it does not mean it is not...

We regulary come here for lunch with the team, as the food is very tasty, does not take too long and the staff is friendly. There are more than 140 meals to choose from, and during lunch they have a nice 3 course menu for under 15€. Service sometimes takes a bit long, especially if more than 4 people are... More

We went to the Vietnam Express with a Groupon voucher. I do not know whether we had a Groupon voucher had something do to with it, but it was horrible. * the service was not good. The servants were not friendly at all. * the quality of the food was poor. It was not fresh, came all from cans. *... More

A lychee's story First of all, it was saturday night and the restaurant was pretty full, the waiters were not enough, busy and exausted all evening. 1: the service was not good ? because there was a mistake in the groupon deal with "fresh lychee" in place of "lychee in cans" and we were trying to find a solution for...

The south of Vietnam cuisine is inspired and delicious, due to the French occupation in the south before the U.S. got involved. The north Vietnam is boiled pork!! Enough said!!
