We nearly went without a reservation and chances are, we would not have had the fine experience of dining here because of the limited number of tables it can accommodate. It is the house of the owners actually. And yes, for me they serve better tasting dishes than the White Plains branch. Their waitstaff are courteous and attentive. A hand... More

I believe it was established by a Filipino guy and his Vietnamese wife. This resto in Silang/Tagaytay is also situated in the hime of the owners. Delicious authentic Vietnamese food. I lived in. Ietnam for 2 years so I should have an idea of real Vietnamese food. Cozy tastefully decorated place. They only accept customers with advance bookings. Open only... More

My wife and I were invited to have dinner in this Excellent Restaurant by the daughter of the owner. Admittedly if you try to find this place at night it can be daunting as the road from the Tagaytay main road is not well lighted and yes Waze does help for sure. But in spite of this, I liken the...

On the way to Tagaytay, we stopped to have lunch here. Based on reviews, I must say this place is a hidden gem. It's located inside a residential area, off-road. Part of the area was converted into a semi-outdoor dining while the cooking mostly done in the kitchen inside the house. Some of the foods we ordered were: Goi Cuon... More

We went there for a dinner with my family, servings are not so generous just a regular serving, no fuzz, the soup ''Pho'' was too oily and their spring roll was just ordinary and not bad at all Price of products are to be considered $$$. I just notice that since we were the last guest to be accommodated, the... More

Came here to celebrate a friend's birthday after reading reviews as I was looking for Vietnamese restaurants. Had to use gps to find this place. Glad I called in for a reservation as the place was quite small which is perfect for that intimate, homey place. We ordered spring rolls, the bamboo shoot salad, beef pho and the prawn in... More

Came for lunch last weekend and was glad to be given a table immediately. I had fresh spring rolls, beef noodle soup and shrimp skewers on sugar cane. I absolutely enjoyed my meal! The beef noodles was perfect - the beef was tender with the right amount of marbling, the soup so flavorful. i loved the spring rolls for its... More

We were at Solenad 2--3 Nuvali today and didn't want any of the overpriced so called cafes and bistros serving the usual fare of Filipino food. Having dearly missed the number of wonderful and cheap Mom n Pop Vietnamese Restos in Chicago, I hesitantly went to this place as I hate to be disappointed by bad Vietnamese food. Came in... More
