The restaurant is obviously very popular in view of the number of occupied tables the evening we were there. Perhaps because of the number of guests, the service was very slow and almost non responsive in our attempt to order some wine and other drinks. The food was well prepared and very tasteful.

On the last day of our stay in Netherlands, we decided to eat some authentic vietnamese food. Google maps and the review in it made us decide to choose this restaurant. What a disappointment! The menu was limited and served stuff which I don't recognize as vietnamese fare. The fried chicken I had was just fried chicken with sweet chili... More

It is not the cheapest of restaurants but the price quality ratio is still very good. The only minor things they can improve is to have a better music installation. And have better ventilation when it is a warm day.

Simply the best Asian food after we left Asia! OK the food was not as spicy, (hot) like in Thailand but I think the excellent service would serve you some extra chilly, if you ask. It´s a good place to dine with friends have a glass of wine and a nice talk in a pleasant atmosphere with a polite service.

While the vast majority of Asian restaurants in the Netherlands are stuck on the age-old cliché of cheap (often dubious quality) food in huge portions, Sense of Asia looks much more stylish and upscale than the average 'Chinese-around-the-corner'. The Thai chicken soup that we had was fairly average; washy without much spices. The main dish of stir-fried chicken in chili... More

This Vietnamese restaurant is a must do when looking for the traditional cuisine. The quality of food and service was excellent. Seating is spacious, tables are decked out in linen with nice tableware and cutlery, unlike most Asian restaurants.

This is a restaurant we frequent regularly, and always to satisfaction. The menu is well balanced, with some very interesting options. The starters of pancakes with duck or the skewers of meat or shrimp are all excellent, and so is the mango salad. The main dishes similarly have enough variety. Generally I would say that the Vietnamese kitchen reminds quite... More
