I'm no authority on viet cuisine, but I do quite regularly visit thai and viet restaurants. As these go, Thanh Binh is very nice. The interior is nothing to write home about, that much is true. On the other hand food is very nice (we went there with a party of eight and everyone concurs), the waiter very friendly indeed and the price is hard to beat. If the allegations of the other reviewer are true, well fair enough, perhaps it is not authentic viet food (as I said, you have to have been in Vietnam in order to be able to judge), but in that case I'll happily take the non authentic food ... Bottom line, nice food (perhaps not authentic, won't be the judge) but as good as it'll get in the neigbhourhood and for an honest price. And you won't get shown the door if you walk in at 15:00, the kitchen is not closed in the afternoon.

Had been reading the few good reviews and there not being many viet restaurants in Brussels, I decided to give it a try. Reception was friendly but when the starter came, I knew it was just going to be one of those not very authentic viets one finds all over Europe. The fresh springrolls were filled with too much vermicelli instead of vegetables. The sauce that came with it was OK. I had ordered beef and nems on vermicelli. The beef and the nems were fine, but the sauce for dipping the vermicelli was way too sweet. They probably forgot that vietnamese cuisine uses a lot of lime juice to get the right balance between sweet-sour-salt. No, I will probably not return. Is there a better one in my city ???

This is more a cafe than a restaurant, but what a nice surprise to find it in the St Gery area of Brussels. I hadn't eaten Vietnamese before, so was lucky to go with a friend who knew what was what - and who said the nems (spring rolls) were the best she had eaten anywhere. We could hardly finish the 3 dishes we shared, all of which were absolutely delicious. We had a 25 euro bottle of wine and still came out with a bill of less than 50 euro! Don't be put off by the picture menu - this is a real find!
