Restaurant details
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This restaurant is in Giles Street Kingston and has been there for a number of years. I went when it first relocated and it was quite good. It now appears to have changed ownership and currently the food here is made with the cheapest ingredients, tasteless and vegetables are overcooked. In one word, avoid.

The food was overpriced and below average! We ordered Vietnamese mint salad as an entree and seriously shocked to get a mouth full for around $10! The waitress went into this justification when i questioned about how much it was for so little- i seriously was not interested in hearing how high rents are when i am paying a lot of money to eat their food- it was lunch time so they switched off the lights half way through the lunch ( i guess to save power- i noticed other diners look around as well when they did this) the spring rolls were very tiny, Laksa was tasteless and really no need to even describe the rest of the experience- had to go elsewhere to eat to feel satisfied - definitely do not recommend this place!

This was our first visit to this restaurant. Mid winter we found it warm and comfortable. The service was good but a little slow, the food fresh and tasty. For a Tuesday night, which is normally a very slow night in any restaurant around the city, the customers kept coming. The prices are average for Vietnamese food. We would not hesitate to return for an impromtu meal. BYO which is a bonus. The address above is shown as 2 Woolley Street, but the address is actually 54 Giles Street, Kingston ACT!

I found this Vietnamese restaurant to be quite average, I did not think tasted like Vietnamese at all. I was surprised that they had received such rave reviews.
