I visited with family as I haven't been for 3 years, as always very busy with delicious food. The restaurant is not very big so would recommend booking a table. This is not fine dining but good Vietnamese and European foodservice is good and they will make up a table outside if space permits. As mentioned food is cheap and... More

I ordered noodles and seafood in oyster sauce I only got 2 prawns and 1 piece of squid... Was so disappointed because I was so hungry, my partner didn't seem to like her food also... They charged a 10% tax and a 5% service. If only the food that I ordered was good. The only good thing is that they... More

A very small restaurant centrally located. The menu describes something different from what you get. Snow crab is actually 2 small pieces of snow crab mixed in with onion rings. The hot and sour prawns were in the Base sauce of a black bean sauce with a chilli added. The restaurant is also comparatively expensive so there is no reason... More

Sea bass bowl was strangely sweet and watery without any deep taste so typical here. Fried red snapper dry and too salty. Traditional salads just plain. Unpleasanr smell in the restaurant - something... More

This place was a god send after the hole we had come from. Their menu is extensive and priced accordingly but still cheap. The ladies are lovely and same for the chef don't forget him. The atmosphere is restful and a nice place to enjoy your dinner. Will go there again without doubt.
