About
Propaganda, perhaps the first Vietnamese bistro in the world, is renowned for great wine and Vietnamese food pairing (we ordered from their surprisingly affordable Food & Wine Discovery menus) but do not miss out if you happen to pass by in the day time and order an outstanding Vietnamese banh mi (in home-baked bread) while you enjoy the commissioned mural art in propaganda art style.

Nice but.. very nice looking, good location. But very difficult staff to understand and to be understood. Service (although poor) is charged automatically. Food okay. Expected more.
