“Sorry, folks, not very good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Although other people seem to rate the restaurant highly, we thought t mediocre. If you haven't had Vietnamese food before, it was seem good, but if you have eaten in many Vietnamese restaurants, you will find the food anything other than exciting. I had a Vietnamese omelet: it was dry and pretty tasteless. The restaurant was very busy (it was Jeudi Nimes, when the shops are open from 6:30 to Midnight), and I think the restaurant was short-staffed and perhaps missing a chef.

“Excellent Vietnamese cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

We walked past this restaurant on Saturday night and it was chockablock. Working on the basis that they must be doing something right we returned on Sunday and had a lovely meal. The staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient and the food very tasty. If you like Vietnamese food with a bit of heat give it a try you won't be disappointed. Cost less than €50 for two including a good bottle of rosé.

“Amazing authentic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Really lovely food, friendly and fast service with plenty of variety on the menu. We ordered the spring rolls on reading how good they were and they were AMAZING!! All in all, a brilliant restaurant for Asian food fans which is both authentic and reasonably priced in a great location!

“Excellent Vietnamese food at very reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

The restaurant is very clean, nicely decorated and laid out.

The attitude of the staff is very good indeed... they were present and helpful from the beginning to end.

The food is fresh, aromatic and well prepared.

There was an error with our order, which they corrected within a few minutes, but I still think this place merits 5/5 overall.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

One of the best meals I have ever come across. Don´t miss this place if you like asian food. I strongly recommend their springrolls, the unfried.
