Simple, tasty food, little tacky decoration.

This restaurant gets incredibly busy, so go early or book. Food is tasty, albeit slightly small portion sizes. The decoration inside is a little tacky though, and the advertising signs inside cheapen the feel of the place.

The food here was terrific. This place gets crowded because of that. They have a well-deserved reputation. Despite the busy-ness, the wait staff does an absolutely phenomenal job. We never felt forgotten or ignored, food came quickly, and requests were looked after right away. I was so impressed. You just can't go wrong here.

The food is good. We tried it twice, and both the avocado salad and beef tasted great. It would have been a much more pleasent visit if the staff smiled more.

After a tiring day, we just wanted a good meal in a pleasant surrounding. The interior of the restaurant was fine, but the food was nothing special. The promotion on the outside makes you think this is a fine dining experience. We found the food to be mainline and safe, with no real flair to the flavors. Service was like... More

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, this characterful restaurant serves up an excellent range of dishes and drinks. Our four year old's more 'discerning' taste was also catered for!

The place looks great and has great service. They are the only great things I can say. The vietnamese food is very ordinary and the 'french' food is not much better. My daughter wanted something western so ordered a croque monsiuer, what she got was a ham and cheese jaffle,- no flavour, nothing french about that. Don't even try dessert.... More

We were there at lunchtime, a little lacking in atmosphere but reasonable prices and the best fried sprin rolls ever. The Vietnamese French fusion od duck a lorange was interesting also.
