We went on a holiday night and there was a very long line to get a seat. We had a reservation but we had to wait for a long time to get a spot for 2 outside (they have long tables outside that people share)....We were finally seated and it was so busy that getting the waiter's attention was very difficult. We had our appetizer but because it was taking so long we decided to leave and went to another restaurant. I wish we had had been able to try the main courses... they did look good!More

Great atmosphere and food. When you step inside, it feels rustic and intimate. Wood tables and stools. The stools have cushions on them. There’s also outdoor seating. I had the Angkor Wat bowl. Full of noodles, fresh veggies, tofu and seitan mixed in a sauce....Good value for 10.20 euro. The service was fast friendly. So many vegetarian options!More

The restaurant is pretty amazing. They have more than one place around berlin, but definitely that was a good one. They have so many options and good appetisers as well. Try to eat inside, the atmosphere is better there.

I never had such bad vietnamese food there are so many options in Berlin, but this place the menu sounds amazing but taste wise?? Umami, do they know the meaning of this word? Well it was tasteless and staff grumpy and rude.. decoration was nice...inside so this might be the only reason people go here. For me as a foodie a deff no I would sayMore

We loved everything, the menu is very extensive and the dishes very interesting! Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious, especially the angry calamari which were very tender. Friendly service too!

The food service is really fast, the dishes are really good and they are nice portions. Not all employees talk english, but there is always one available that does. Overall amazing experience. There is also an option to sit on traditional tables in the back...where you dine at low tables and you are seated on the floor.More

The food was so fresh and wholesome we left 100% satisfied. Our server was the best. Ordered the matcha waffle for dessert and instead of being overwhelmingly sweet, it was light and refreshing, topped with mango and berries. Went on a Monday night and still...had a short wait, but it was well worth it. Loved eating outdoors under an abundance of beautiful lanterns surrounded by people.More

Said it all. Manager's (?) behavior was appalling. They had stuffed up our reservation and he wanted to blame it on us! Hilarious. Shocking. Some people.

Would rate the food 3/5 but the interior is really pretty therefore giving it 4/5. The food was decent but wasn’t spicy enough nor did it taste that authentic, tasted like it was Asian food geared towards a western palate. The beef on the pho...was cut way to thick is should have been alot thinner. The papaya salad was oddly extremely sweet, and not tangy and spicy as it should be. The service was slow, but the atmosphere was nice. The total for 2 people (1 main, 2 appetiser, no drinks just water) was 17€ for lunch. Overall would not come for the food, but rather the overall atmosphere/vibe.More

Came here on the last night of a 3 day trip to Berlin with my girlfriend and it was an amazing experience. Friendly staff, such good value and amazing food. Huge variety on menu and everything looked delicious. So affordable. Starters were devine, generous portions...for mains and drinks were lovely. Get the hugo cocktail ;) Would definitely come back.More

Tasty but nothing to rave about! This place is always busy so when I visited I knew I had to try it out! The meal and food is very very quick so if you want a relaxing meal and a couple of drinks, this probably...isn’t the place - you do get the impression they just want you out! I had the scallops starter which was so so tasty. I then had the rice beef and mango and my partner the bao burger, they were both tasty and okay but nothing to get too excited about. All in all it’s a cheap, quick dinner and I would go back again.More

When we went, there was actually a large group of parents with their kids, so it did seem kid-friendly. Although I’m not quite sure if this would be a good place to go if your kid isn’t into Asian food. I would contact them... More
