Fantastic atmosphere are really good food

The queues are huge to get inside but as a foreigner it does not seem to apply to you. Walk right up to the doorman, give a half salute, state your party size and walk right in. You feel horrible but ..... Anyway, the food is really good and the waiting staff speaks good english. It is one of... read more

I have visited this restaurant a few times and must say that it is very good food. each time we went we tried different food and each time we were happy. My wife and my boys like the food as well. The only bad thing is that there is usually a wait to eat there if you go during the... More

I am a picky Vietnamese food eater, due to I grew up eating it. Tiger Pawn is probably the most authentic Vietnamese restaurant in Guangzhou. For a country that is not far from Guangzhou, I can never understand why Vietnamese food is not more popular here. Even saying that, they still cut down on the use of fresh herb and... More

went here with my family for a dinner. Have to wait probably around 1hour just to get a table. Finally the food came to our table. Everything is delicious and exotic. Would definitely plan to come back whenever visiting guangzhou. The food is cheap and so delicious. Thx tiger prawn

I think numbers draw more numbers - so what if most are wrong? I find the food mediocre and not authentic, definitely noth worth waiting in Q to get a table.

Now I understand why this place is absolutely crowded, packed with local people, Chinese from outside the city and foreigners... Because is absolutely delicious, with affordable prices, English understanding and fast service. This place opened my eyes to the requisite Vietnamese food. Certainly will return soon.

If you hate to wait, do not go there during busy time, around 7pm or 8pm, its not rare to see more than 50 people waiting outside ! This restaurant is SUPER popular, and when you taste the food and see the price, you understand why. Lets be honnest, its not a 5 star restaurant, but all items are fresh,... More

Very good Vietnamese food, attentive staff and cheap prices! Ordered a spring roll & meat platter, fried rice, oyster omelette, seafood dish (clams, prawns, squid), veg and beer - came to less than GBP 20. It's located on Huifu Dong Road, a street on the first left once you enter the pedestrianised part of Beijing Road. It's a 100m or... More

You won't forget your experience here, incredibly popular, excellent value, huge range of dishes, always fresh, this place is a winner. Great menus, both in Chinese and in English, with large quality photos, so no communication problems. The beer is cold and cheap, which is needed for some of the spicy hot dishes. The only problem is actually getting inside,... More
