“A nice alternative to all the Belgian fare in the area around the Cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

By the time we arrived in Antwerp, we had already been in Belgium for a week. So walking around the area near the Cathedral, we were thinking of finding a restaurant with something a little different than the usual Belgian fare (mussels, steak frites, etc.). Well, not only was Yuna's Vietnamese fare a welcome site - the people who worked there were also friendly and welcoming.

We came back later and had dinner and Yuna definitely lived up to our expectations. Mildly spicy but fragrant, fresh with first-rate ingredients. And all with a magnificent view of the nighttime spire of the cathedral!

“The Food is Well Worth Waiting For”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

This really is a nice restaurant in the middle of town. The prices are average for Antwerp. The atmosphere is nice and relaxing, some weird pictures and strange chairs but it is very comfortable. The food is why we go there, I have been a few times and have never been disappointed with the food quantity or quality. Yes the other reviews are right it is not the fastest service. But remember this is Antwerp and no one is quick here, it is just a Belgium thing. But the wait is well worth it. At least you know the food is cooked freshly to order!
Give it a try and for some great music afterwards pop in to the Witte House opposite.

“had to wait a looooong time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Food is nice, especially their Pho Bo is very good, but we had to wait really really really very long before we got served. Four of the couples that ordered after us even cancelled their order and left. It took us 2,5 hrs for a Chicken Noodles soup with beef ...
Staff was friendly but nothing more. They did not apologize for the delay, in fact laughed a bit about it and said it was 'normal' as there was a big group being served before us.

“A different kind of thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Not only does the place looks good, the staff is very friendly and the food is excellent. The selection is different than what you usually expect at a thai and it also offers Japanese dishes. The house wine is not bad either. We recommend the goat dish, we did not have The goat stew with rice is excellent!

“Yummy Pho and Duck Fillet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Prices were a bit pricey since I'm accustomed to the American price when eating at any Vietnamese restaurant, but this one was one of the best Asian food I've found in Belgium =) You can't go to a Vietnamese restaurant without trying their famous bowl of Pho noodle soup. My husband had their duck fillet and he couldn't stop moaning. Some of the food seasoning can be a bit spicy so I suggest you ask before ordering. I love spicy food but my husband does not so I'm always on the look-out for things like that. Staffs were pretty friendly. English menu also avail.
