I ordered fresh spring rolls and a spicy soup. Both were good, tasty, however nothing out of ordinary. When the bill came, I noticed they charged 1e more for the spring rolls than what it says in the menu (it wasn't even hand written bill). I hate situations like that - I rather avoid confrontations. So keep your eye out!

Ate here today - gentleman that served was quite attentive - although I was a little miffed that a plate of roast duck with pancakes came with a bowl of rice! Foodcwas nice but not exceptional and at 7.00pm restaurant was completely empty so a definite lack of ambience. On average about 17 Euros per dish so could work out... More

If you are looking for a friendly, quiet little restaurant that serves delicious Asian food at very reasonable prices, go visit Li Yuan. I had a 2-course lunch menu at 17 EUR (nems and chicken in curry sauce). Just what I needed after an expensive shopping trip on Avenue Louise & Avenue de la Toison d'Or nearby.

A useful place to stop for lunch if shopping on the Avenue Louise. Certainly not worth a special detour but if one is in the area and feeling peckish then it will do the job. Food and service are OK.

I ordered the sauteed noodles with vegetables and specifically asked for tap water. The server brought a bottle of uncarbonated water (0.33 liter). I asked the waiter what was going on, and he said "Tap water is not drinkable in Belgium." I said I was drinking tap water at the hotel with no problem. The waiter said "Well, hotels are... More

Not very large menu, mainly typical Vietnamese specialities. I ordered the mixed seafood and a nice plate came with seafood, chicken and beef.. they should better call it Εnhanced seafood dish. I also asked for a little bowl of chili oil and they brought two or three different sauces before I realize they didn't know and they didn't have chili... More

Decided to have a late lunch here (mostly everything else around was closed, as it was about 4:15 pm) and was very pleasantly surprised. Nice menu (though Li Yuan advertises itself as Vietnamese, the name is Chinese, as are many if not most of the choices on the menu) and the meal itself was quite good. I had a duck... More

Friendly service, great lunch special (similar to a bento box) and just very good Asian food! Was a pleasant change from the traditional European food we have been eating on the trip.

Came for lunch with good hope and appetite. But, one of the worst places I've eaten in Brussels so far. Nothing was good. €9.50 for 4 horrible dumplings, the serving of 'nem' included only 2 pieces instead of usual 3-4 and they tasted mostly of oil. 'Chicken salad' was a joke, mostly iceberg with some carrot and at most 1/4... More
