“Perfect”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

After our mediocre experience at Carré Rouge (see my other review), we were beginning to wonder whether we would find a quality restaurant in Toulouse. We love asian food of any style (this is Vietnamese, not Chinese as other reviewers have suggested), and Chez Moi came highly recommended by a local. We weren't disappointed. When viewed from the street along the canal, it doesn't look like much, but step inside, and you're transported to an upscale restaurant that you might find in Ho Chi Minh city. Very friendly greeting, and we were promptly seated after declaring our reservation (recommended).

The menu is quite extensive, including a few Thai and Chinese dishes, but I recommend you stick with the Vietnamese cuisine that is their specialty. We all ordered an appetizer - my wife and I decided to split the "dégustation" platter that had a selection of different items. (See photo.) Each item was very tasty, and there was a selection of sauces to try. Next, we decided to try the noodle dishes (Mi Xao) as a main course. I had the crispy noodles with various seafood items and some sauteed beef (Mi Xao Gion). My wife had the "house" noodles (Mi Xao Maison) that were steamed with a selection of seafood. Each platter arrived with a carved turnip "flower" decoration that was quite a nice touch. And the food was very delicious, with a nice sauce underlying it all. We know that Vietnamese food is supposed to be spicy, but the dishes don't come that way to appeal to the milder French palate. We asked if they had chili sauce, and they very quickly brought us a little bowl of sauce and another bowl with little slivers of super-hot peppers. If you like spicy, be sure to sprinkle some of both on your dish to make it more authentic! Food was delicious, and service was impeccable. If you wanted something, all you had to do was look up, and a server appeared instantaneously to answer your questions or bring whatever you wanted. Highly recommended.

“Vietnamese food at its best”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Choose the dishes cooked à la vapeur for the most subtle flavours. My prawn dumplings were very special indeed. Desserts not advanturous, as so often in places like this.

“Excellent food, superb interior and well decorated plates”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

The food is amazing. Gastronomic & traditional Asian food.
Succulent and pretty with orchids and sculpted vegetables to decorate your plate and the place.
It is worth the price which is reasonable for what it is.
Everything is home-made. I went there in December in memory of 15 years ago, and well they kept the quality.
The service is really good, very polite staff.

Reviewed December 9, 2007

a bit disappointed by this restaurant. It praises to be a Chinese gourmet restaurant but... I did not found much of originality in the dishes proposed. However, the prices are quite high. Only decoration is neat and worthy of a gourmet restaurant.
