I checked this place out after seeing it in the LP guidebook. The place looked nice, clean, and got all smileys from the health inspector. I was hesitant when I saw sushi on the huge picture menu / mural gracing a wall.

The food was surprisingly good and tasty (I didn't have the sushi). I had the lemongrass beef. They don't really have the traditional pho here so I'm not sure what the last reviewer ordered. The servers were super nice and patient. The place was pretty popular with locals, many opting for takeout, so that's always a good sign. The prices were about average for CPH, about 100-150 dkk or so.

Pho was $26 US and wasn't as good as what you get at a good place for $7. Wasn't authentic, either, tho it had decent flavor. Noodles weren't the real deal and they had none of the necessary/authentic hot sauces. Fish sauce was weak. Fried eggs rolls interesting but peculiar at the same time

We went with our Danish friends, and they were able to get a reservation for us (Monday night though). We shared small plates. The menu recommended getting 3-4 per person, which would be way too many. We started with 8 and added 2 more that we didn't really need but wanted to try.

It's a creative menu with very fresh and lovely ingredients. Overall, it was a little bland, but we really enjoyed the flavors. The sea bass was definitely the best. The spring rolls were all boring.

We also tried four different cocktails, and all were delicious - totally uncharacteristic of our european travels, where we decided we need to stick with beer and wine. The gin-cucumber-mint drink was the best, and I loved my special bloody Mary.

Very fun atmosphere, near the theatre and full of interesting-looking, mainly local patrons. Definitely check it out.

Can't book so be prepared to wait a while for a table, however, the waiting area is a bar clad with cool people sucking back glorious cocktails. We've traveled extensively around Vietnam and are regulars at London's best Vietnamese, and the food here is right up there.
