Great Vietnamese restaurant, attentive service and the food was delicious. Thus place was really busy on a Tuesday evening which says a lot about its popularity. We had two starters, two mains, a desert and two drinks which came in under $120 - superb value, so will be heading back again for sure! The only reason it did not get... More

Our guests were elderly and were exhausted by the terminal waits. it even took 30 mins to get them to take my credit card. Feel they were 3 or 4... More

Simply the best Vietnamese food in Wellington, if not New Zealand. The food is always very fresh, fragrant and incredibly delicious. Outstanding service without feeling like you've been fussed over. We've been many times and always 9/10 or 10/10 from everyone :)

(pho in Melbourne is around aud10) So we decided to focus on the entree which are slight cheaper, range from $15-20. We were very impressed with the beef rip, prefer to eat with rice (tho they don't serve with it, you... More
