“Superb value for money.”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Great spot for pre-cinema or pre concert food. Lovely selection of freshly cooked Vietnamese noodles, rice dishes and starters. Tremendous value for money and good constantly good. In nearly 20 years, not had a bad meal coming most months!

“Best value for money Asian food in Brussels”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Me and some friends have been coming weekly since March 2012 and I can't remember a single time we left disappointed. The menu is large enough to pick something different every time but my go-to dishes are their beef carpaccio (#42) and the phở (#9). Excellent value for money as main courses vary around €9 to €13.

“Cheap yet tasteful eating!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I'm always surprised as to how little people are dining here, cause I believe it is the cheapest Asian restaurant in this neighborhood (that is full with Asian restaurants) and you get a lot more than you pay for!
I've come here a couple of times and am never displeasured. That would be impossible since it's really not expensive and for that price you wouldn't expect much yet the tastes are good and the quantities are satisfying. Last time I went I ordered the menu (vegetable soup + loempia's + ginger chicken for only 8,5 euro's) and although the separate dishes weren't that big in quantity, I left satisfied because you get 3 (!!!) dishes. Eating a la carte is also not expensive by the way and dishes are usually bigger than when you order the menu.

The restaurant is open til late! I believe until midnight.

“so-so”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Indeed, it`s a very cheap restaurant for Brussels, you wont spend more than 15 euros for sure.

The girl working there is also very hospitable (I think it`s her parents place) and very cute :-)

BUT, I was kind of disappointed of the tasteless food.

“Authentic at good price”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Very good value and very close to what you get in Asia.
My favourite is fish soup with tamarind.
Their combination plate is also not bad.
