“Good Late Night Option”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Not the best Vietnamese cafe in the vicinity but Locomotive (it's a chain) stays open late and is great for that occasional post-drinks supper. Otherwise the food is good but not terribly outstanding. The phos and the broken rice are great (comfort food) options. Prices are a little on the higher end for a small cafe. We spent about HKD200 on two mains and one starter (no drinks). Service is quite pleasant here.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

This restaurant looks very pleasant and it's nicely furbished.
We didn't like the food. Not because it's not prepared well but I guess we didn't like the way it was spiced.
We ordered one vegetable noodle soup (huge portion, it's for two persons), cold spring rolls and soft shell crab fry (also huge portion). We drank one glass of wine and lime soda and we paid everything around 350 hk dollars.
We waited a little bit longer than usual in Hong Kong but service was friendly.

“New menu is overpriced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

Been regulars for a long time to get our pho fix. But recent menu changes reduced the choices of pho and the same dish has nearly doubled in price. Now we go to other nearby Vietnam pho houses and pay half. They got too greedy.

“Good and bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2011 via mobile

The best stir fried vegetables I have EVER tried. Don't know how they do it. I over ordered for one, but the prawns on sugar cane were average, the chicken wings ok. The service was efficient, but somewhat surly. Still waiting for that glass of wine!! Much was made of the origin of the signature dish of the restaurant. But despite asking, i couldnt find the dish on the menu. Would go back for the veges
