Im not very familiar with Vietnamese' Dishes thats why I order Thai... :) I have to admit I love Thai n its worse than impossible to find a (decent) Indonesian Resto in Franconian n Bayern except for Munich. The Resto located at the side... More

I visit this restaurant at least two or three times every time I come to Erlangen. The food is delicious. The wonton soup is the best I have ever had. The restaurant is known for its duck but not being a fan of duck I always choose any of the fried chicken dishes and I am never disappointed. The highlight... More

As the title says just basic good food nice price but nothing special. If you like Asian food go for it. Would advise the Sanuk though.

I've been to quite a few Vietnamese Restaurants here and Germany and this one although small is a gem. The waiter was very kind and explained the appetisers and entrées which was unusual for us here in Germany. The Phò is the best I've had in the entirety of Europe although it wouldn't hurt them to add in a greater... More

I like the food there pretty much, There are many vegetarian options. The service is fast and friendly. It is mostly full, so booking in advance is advisable.

Duck is always good in here and the size of the portion is perfect. Only minus is that time to time is quite full and it is not easy to find room. Otherwise one of the best restaurants in Erlangen

I liked it. Everything we had was good, although not quite the flavours that I experienced in Vietnam, but I am eager to try more. The duck we had was really well cooked, tender and juicy. The waiter/owner got our order wrong but was happy to fix it and he was really smily and friendly.

I eat here once a fortnight. Cheap, tasty Vietnamese/Chinese/Thai food. Always satisfied. Fresh spring rolls and coconut juice are my favourite picks.

Went on the recommendation of a colleague. Small and typically oriental with a really welcoming owner. I had a quick read of trip advisor prior to my visit and was taken by a review of dish 99 duck in peanut sauce so I opted for the dish. I have to say it was every bit as delicious as described cooked... More
