My husband and I got a couple dishes take away while our kids ate boring food. The prawn dish and fresh spring rolls were really great. Annoyed that you have to buy rice separately.

So tasty and unique Vietnamese flare. No pho but other delicious noodles and vegetables. Not like eating in Vietnam but all flavors are authentic—more of a fusion style. Fave is clay pot catfish.
