Fantastic spunky Vietnamese decor. Restaurant is all open which is perfect for Cairns tropical weather, providing a very welcoming atmosphere. There was 4 of us & we all greatly enjoyed our meals. Large portions & reasonably priced. Service was wonderful & food came out very quickly. Very highly recommended :)

Heard about this place from a friend who thought it was great! I am now a big fan. If you are up in the Kuranda hills sometime make sure you check it out. The green paw paw salad is Amazing!

We loved the food so much we dined here four out of five nights. Even though we were close to the restaurant hub, the food was divine.

My husband and I were staying at Discovery Hotel and decided to give the on site restaurant a go. The food was amazing, the portion sizes enormous and the service exceptional. Great value for money, a charming atmosphere in a quiet location. Highly recommended!!!
