Great menu and food consistent. Would be excellent rating but sometimes service a little lax. But overall a great place to dine with friends.

The staff here, particularly Susannah the Operations Manager, went above and beyond to ensure we were well looked after. The Lemongrass Chicken was delicious. Would definitely recommend this one.

Since renamed Bloom, this restaurant is difficult to find, but worth it. The architecture is impressive, as is the food.

Southern Vietnamese family dishes are the main focus of the restaurant. We will welcome you as if you were coming in our home, with smiles and soft atmosphere, believing that good food brings people together. In a French colonial house, we went back to the roots of Vietnamese cuisine as it was done in the Sixties without MSG.
