We opted for the "UNCLE...Knows Best" option which at $55 a person was well worth it. Every single dish was an outstanding fusion of flavour combinations. Layers of flavours and textures. Knock your socks off scrumptious!! I think we had a total of 8 different...More

Had the $49/head “Uncle knows best” banquet. Everything was super- fresh and so delicious! More Vietnamese fusion than authentic Vietnamese but that didn’t matter. Accommodated the one vegetarian in the group with yummy substitutes. Wait staff friendly and efficient.
