We arrived rather hopefully on the evening of 1st January without a reservation. We were told we'd have to wait a while for a table but if we wanted to go for a drink they would call us when one was available, which they duly did! Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and very good food indeed. Recommended.

I was travelling alone in AKD on business and that can be difficult at some restaurants. Not here! They offered me a great table for 2 or a place at the bar. I opted for the latter and was then informed that most of the dishes they offered I could have in a half size. How great is that ?... More

This place doesn't take reservations, which is a real plus if you need to go somewhere at the last minute. We popped in and they took our name and told us they'd contact us within the hour when a table became available. There are plenty of bars nearby so we had a drink next door and 40 mins later a...

Looked for this restaurant after reading about it on TA. I am glad we did since we were not disappointed. The restaurant was buzzing and we were lucky to get a table. They do not take bookings but if you want to go and have a drink somewhere, they are happy to phone you when a table becomes available. The... More

We did not reserve our table for 5 + a baby but we were able to get a table after a short wait. Food was authentic Vietnamese and also Fusion of others. Service good but not excellent.
