Very friendly and welcoming staff and the Pho was certainly equal to (if not better than) any we've had in Vietnam. Very basic place, but comfortable and air-conditioned, with quick service and terrific food.

Friendly and enthusiastic service and excellent food. Arrived quickly and all good. Sure it's a little more expensive than Sydney or Melbourne but it's Darwin people! Think how expensive it is to have some food shipped in.

Worst 100 bucks ever spent. The food was not good either and the customer service was really rude. So basically not a single point to come here again.

The service is great and the food is delicious. We asked for our own combination of flavours and the chef was happy to oblige. The food comes out very quickly and the ingredients are fresh and tasty. Every time we visit Darwin we come here.
