Ouaga’s only Vietnamese restaurant has a nice ambience and a great selection of tasty dishes. Eat inside the air-conditioned dining room or outside on the small terrace. The service is friendly & polite, and it doesn't take overly long for the food to arrive.

We find the dishes here so tasty that rather than each ordering our own meals, we order a variety of dishes (appetizers as well as main courses) and share them! The hard part is limiting the number of dishes we want to order! There are just too many good ones to choose from. But don’t worry, they’ll wrap up the leftovers for you to take home and enjoy again later :)

Mr. Louis Nyguen, the owner, is frequently present and pleasant to talk to.

Just had a great lunch with excellent service. The crab chips at the beginning were great. Loved the Cantonese rice.

My Vietnamese dining companion was thrilled to chat with the restaurant's proprietors, which made this a very special night out for him. Those of us who really dig Vietnamese food were satisfied to various degrees with our meals. The spring rolls were bland and the nems were a bit greasy, but the abundant mint and lettuce that accompanied them burst with flavor. I loved my crispy noodle dish and the wide variety of "al dente" vegetables that came with it. However, those who had the pho (of which only one kind was available) were very disappointed. I recommend Kim Son if you want something Asian, or want to eat vegetables from a clean kitchen. By the way, the interior is quite elegant, so don't be put off by the view from the curb.

Great Vietnamese restaurant. You must try the nems and nouille croqant saute la viande.

We had a great Vietnamese meal at this cozy restaurant. The owner, Mr. Louis Nguyen, will welcome you warmly! Tasty nems, Vietnamse crepes and other Asian dishes. Good value for money.
