We went there on a Tuesday for lunch. There were kind waiters but they misunderstood our orders quite a bit. We ordered a vegetarian spring roll but they brought a spring roll with vegetable and prawns in it. For our main courses, my husband asked for white rice but a yellow rice with vegetables came. We came when the restaurant... More

I visit Vietnam Express regularly for lunch breaks. The area where the resto is located might not be the fanciest, but the restaurant is great. Friendly and fast service, delicious food, reasonable (even though quite recently increased) prices. All in all a safe bet when it comes to lunch in this area. My personal favorite - poulet grillé à la... More

I have gone here 4 times during 3 trips to Brussels over the last two years. On all occasions the food was very good, the service friendly and fast, and the atmosphere very relaxing. On most occasions I was on my own, after attending a business meeting, and this was an excellent place to relax.

I went there after reading a few reviews here. Of course not all can be super perfect and positive, but I didn't expect that. The restaurent itself looks really nice and the service at the counter was really friendly. We were told that the food was really spicy which was totally okay for us, since we are used to Asian...

The food is not bad and reasonably priced, but for our visit anyway, the service was appalling. We waited 20 minutes for the menu, and 90 minutes between the starter and the main course. No apologies, on the contrary the waiters were surly and rude throughout (when we could get hold of them). We were seated by the door (our... More

Terrific and inexpensive Vietnamese food. Each dish had a distinctive taste and was quite delicious, the steamed rice cake appetizer was especially unique. The curries made with fresh ingredients were excellent.The servers were friendly and accommodating.

... to a pleasant Vietnamese restaurant. Don't be put-off by the pokey front room, the main dining room behind has ample space and in summer there are a few tables in the walled garden. The menu offers a rather conservative choice of (eurofied) Vietnamese rice and noodle dishes at reasonable prices (starters 6 to 10 euro), mains 12 euros. The... More

The pork triangles, the yellow chicken curry and the lemon grass beef were good. The service was fast and nice. The restaurant looks fresh and cheerful with pink and purple walls. The price are low for this district in Brussels. Along the other comments, I do not think that the food was purely Vietnamese or Thai, it is more of... More

What's with the whole dumbing down of Asian food these days? They all seem to be a mixture of Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese, none of it done particularly well. I think it's called jumping on the band wagon! The food was ok, nothing wrong with it at all, it's just not authentic Vietnamese...Simples!
