Food was quite all right. I had sea food madness. Very good shrimps, calamari I enjoyed it. My friends both had soups. Apparently they come here often and eat the very same every time. Curry soup and like Ramon with pine apple, tomatoes etc. Sunday evening the restaurant was quite full.

The spring rolls were delicious! I asked for a pad thai without peanuts, with chicken and vegetables. All my requests were perfectly fulfilled! It is the kind of meal that makes you satisfied without feeling your stomach heavy.

We are big fans of this place. We go pretty much whenever we can all agree on pho. We go to Super 88 when we can't agree.

Its large menu is a combination of Vietnamese and Thai offerings. The times we (wife and I) have been there, service has been very attentive and they explain the dishes very well for first time comers. They offer quite a number of dishes for people that is gluten sensitive and it is cooked separately from the other meals to avoid... More

We ate in this big, Vietnamese restaurant on the first night of our holiday, exhausted from a long day of travelling. The menu is large and includes vegetarian choices even though it is not a strictly vegetarian restaurant. Our food was excellent and inexpensive and the service was exceptionally quick. We would definitely go back there and we would both... More

A very nice experience at this large Vietnamese restaurant. Lovely attentive service and a huge menu. We came especially for Pho, the soup everyone seems to love. And it was warming on a cool spring evening. The beef shumai Pho was plenty to eat. Thin wafers of beef were almost unimportant to thetas of the broth veggies and plenty of... More

Came here for dinner with the family. The quail starter was ok. The rest of the meal was a disaster.... the food is covered in sauces there is no care, no subtlety... certainly we are not coming back!

Met a friend here at her suggestion. Service is great - warm and welcoming. Food is mediocre. Some dishes were tasty and fresh (shrimp with a pepper sauce), others (mango chicken) tasted like an overlooked Lean Cuisine complete with rubbery chicken.
