Management finally spent some money and this is a nicer place to sit down for a meal. Service is good and the food is also normally quite good

Wonderful ambiance and superb food at a great price. Oh, the Beaujolais was a good buy too and we have already recommended the restaurant to fellow countrymen in Ouagadougou.

A group of us ate here before I look off for the US, and I was glad to make the discovery. A lovely restaurant, nice-looking inside, great service, and very good food. The menu looked extensive, and, although the prices were a little on the high side by Burkina Faso standards, we were not disappointed. I had the bò bún,... More

We went here for a lunch and were the only guests – and were soon to find out why. The food was ok, lower average, not exaggeratedly fresh and tasty, but ok. In comparison to other Vietnamese eateries in e.g. Paris and especially by local standards, this restaurant is quite pricey. Serving sizes on the other hand are ridiculously small,... More

Ate here after a very long time, and so glad we did! The food, the ambiance and the service all get good marks. Will return again for sure!

The Vietnamese owners are doing their best to serve Vietnamese food tweaked to cater to general international tastes. They are from the south and the food is good -- especially if you have a craving -- but I found it quite pricey for the quantities. It isn't like in Vietnam...but then, this is Africa! :) Still, great for a meal... More

Ouaga’s only Vietnamese restaurant has a nice ambience and a great selection of tasty dishes. Eat inside the air-conditioned dining room or outside on the small terrace. The service is friendly & polite, and it doesn't take overly long for the food to arrive. We find the dishes here so tasty that rather than each ordering our own meals, we... More

Just had a great lunch with excellent service. The crab chips at the beginning were great. Loved the Cantonese rice.

My Vietnamese dining companion was thrilled to chat with the restaurant's proprietors, which made this a very special night out for him. Those of us who really dig Vietnamese food were satisfied to various degrees with our meals. The spring rolls were bland and the nems were a bit greasy, but the abundant mint and lettuce that accompanied them burst... More

Great Vietnamese restaurant. You must try the nems and nouille croqant saute la viande.
