We went twice so the food was so good. On one occasion they made a mistake on one of the courses so gave both of us a complimentary drink. Very friendly staff. Be prepared to see on old wooden shack, but it is very clean.

We were lucky to get a seat at this busy little eatery. Great service. The food was tasty. The menu is a little out of my normal taste bud range but the food was tasty and nicely presented.

For something different a Vietnamese meal, pretty good service although I think they forgot our mains for a while there. But didn't matter to much as it was good to have a break between courses.

I don't think the description Vietnamese is accurate. This restaurant serves a mix of Asian food which was okay, but nothing to write home about. The staff were pleasant enough and speed of service was good.

We were one of the first people there and we didn't get our meal until about 40 mins later. It was pretty average food too. Do yourself a favour and if you feel like Asian food wait until you're off the islandMore
