They have a lovely appetizer option, where you pick five appetizers from the menu; there were three of us, so there were three of each item. We ordered vegetable spring rolls, chicken satay, mango salad with beef, chili prawns, and aromatic pork ribs.

Where to start? Our first time eating Vietnamese food and we were not disappointed. Firstly the dip that comes with the free prawn crackers is a delicious sweet chilli sauce. We had the Thai basil squid and the poached king prawna as starters. The squid was the best I have tasted in this country and the prawns were equally tasty.... More

Yet again no complaints. Food was fresh red hot, so so tasty (as always) prices very good. To say 2 young girls were running front of house they did a good job as it was busy.

I had never tried Vietnamese before, the place is superb. No rush, advice on the menu and excellent food. Starter platter was filling and the taste experience started. All the mains were exceptional whether it was the curry, fish or pork. Wish it was nearer to me as I would definitely go again.

I have been a few times and the food has been nice however the smell was terrible the last visit, my husbands squid was oily and the two staff decided to talk about future booking and how the clients kept changing bookings! This made us feel uncomfortable. First rule in customer service NEVER talk about your customers

A little bit like Tardis, looks small from the outside but roomy with plenty of tables. Staff excellent and only excelled by the food which was outstanding. Modestly priced, a gem not to be missed.
