Don't expect it to be 100% authentic vietnamese, but it's the closest you can get in Lausanne. The food in general is very good. Try the "Porc croustillant" or the beef-shrimp combo with rice paper that you roll yourself.
Service is not up to Swiss standards. The servers sometimes do not understand well the language but somehow it usually works out. Also, they are used to clear away any empty dishes even if people at the table are still eating. This is not to make you leave but cultural difference.

If you look for good Vietnamese food and money is not an issue, I'd recommend this place. The terrace is fake, covered sidewalk next to busy traffic light.

recently refurbished this vietnamese restaurant is excellent in price and service. In the week they serve at lunch too for a small wallet you get a very nice portion. At night the restaurant shines at its best, the service is friendly and fast, the food is excellent with plenty of flavours. All for a very reasonable price
