We generally eat right in the strip but we are so glad we ventured further down and came across this little gem. Fast ,efficient service, excellent food , good value for money. Obviously lots of regulars which is always a good sign. Will definitely be back to explore the menu !!

Been coming for years with my family. The food is fresh and the service is great...if it's your birthday expect a funny bd song they play on their sound system which is a bit embarrassing but full of fun!!!

We're usually Van Mai regulars but decided to venture next door to Loi Loi and now we have two favourites. Attentive staff and super tasty dishes like the vermicelli salads and the pho soup one of the tastiest ever! So much more relaxing at this end of Victoria Street without the crowds.

This place is small and a little further from the main Vietnamese restaurants in Victoria Street, but well worth visiting. We have been here twice in the last month - and have not been disappointed. The food is fresh and the portions are great. It is noisy but has a vibrant atmosphere. we would definitely come here again!
