“One of the better Vietnamese in town”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

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.

“good food but much too expensive”
Reviewed July 21, 2010

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.
