We both took the green rice and grilled pork rib with honey sauce. The portion was big and the pork was very tasty. The restaurant was super busy at lunch time. It is a really nice spot to come sometimes.

Had a lovely meal here! Loved the atmosphere and outlook. The menu offered a number of Vietnamese choices and every dish we tried was impeccable. Was a great re fuelling station after a tour of the palace and war museum around the corner.

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.
