We've wanted to try Vietnamese for quite some time. We were staying in the area and a search on trip advisor for somewhere to eat threw this place up as an option with great reviews. We were disappointed from the start with poor service. We ordered a starter and a main each. The starters were good, you can't really go wrong with the satay chicken. The
Bánh xèo vegetarian golden pancake was a huge portion and very tasty.
There were several other couples in the restaurant, two of them made the experience even worse with their loud talking. While we were waiting for our main course one particularly rude lady thought it was acceptable to hold an extremely loud conversation via speakerphone! We are now fully in the loop on her troubles and tribulations with regard to renting/selling/buying a house and the expletives she uses to refer to her solicitors! Obviously this isn't the restaurants fault, however I would have expected them to at least ask the lady on the telephone to take her call outside.
The main courses really let this place down, we ordered BÚN XẢ with chicken, which was bland apart from the small piece of chilli I found. The HOÀNH THÁNH MÌ Wun Tun dumplings soup which should have come with egg noodles didn't have any noodles at all.. We tried to explain and ask where the noodles were thinking that maybe they would come separately but they didn't understand and kept pointing at the dumplings (maybe its an error on the menu and this dish traditionally doesn't come with noodles?) the soup was also bland. We ordered some steamed mixed vegetables on the side which was just a plate of water chestnuts and bamboo shoots.
We won't be returning here again but will give Vietnamese food another chance.
