Good Vietnamese Option

A reasonably priced Vietnamese restaurant in the ever expanding food region of HK Island. Friday evening can often find the restaurant filled to capacity so try and get there early or prepare to wait.

I've been to several Vietnamese restaurants all price range and this one I think it's good food but not as good to justify the price which I underline it's not expensive but not as cheap as you expect for the food and location you have.

This is a nic place with large portions and good service but nothing to do with real viet food. Expect chinese restyled stuff. Strange that beer is served in a bowl, not a glass!

The open, ground floor of the restaurant looked full, even after several tables were turned over. We were surprised to learn that seating was available upstairs and delighted to discover the cosy, elegant converted rooms. The food was quite good and beautifully presented. The soft shell crab rolls are amazing! The prices were very reasonable, especially considering ambiance and food... More

Well, given that I am writing this review from my bathroom I guess there is not much more that needs to be said. Absolute no no. Not sure what I was thinking but yikes.

My go-to place for Vietnamese Pho. Soup noodles with shredded chicken, chicken wings in honey sauce are among the best I've had, authentic. We also ordered the fried rice in a little wok, very well done.

A new branch has recently opened on Jaffe Road and decided to try this restaurant for the very first time because their interior design got me curious. I should say the food were quite nice and did not disappoint us except for their presentation of the dessert when they handed out the ice cream in a Häagen Dazs tubs that... More

My son and I tried Locomotive as it was pretty close to the hotel and offered the menu in English. Service was fine and the food was tasty - didn't realise the noodle soup was for two until it arrived but you live and learn - we also had spring rolls, quail and curried duck.

Ok, my gf and I are fans of Locomotive. Firstly, it's reasonably priced, especially for lunch. Secondly, the flavours of both their Beef Brisket Pho and Tomato Brisket Pho keep us coming back for more. It helps that we lived in the neighborhood, but even now that we've moved, we still go back to Locomotive to enjoy delicious pho at... More
