We went there based on some good reviews, but we were deeply disappointed with the food. We ordered the beef rolled with coconut. It was so hard and overcooked. We also ordered the claypot catfish, it was not so saltish. Both also totally not edible at all. We asked the waitress to try the food themselves, even they themselves frown with painful look. The young waitress ran away immediately(to spit out the food?).

The only thing edible was the salad, oily and saltish but edible. After paying high price we had to look for elsewhere to fill our hunger. Really horrible dining experience to us.

We had a nice experience, eating in this famous restaurant. We had to take our shous off and were friendly served. Even tough most of the staff could not speak English, all were very friendly. The price was higher compered with other restaurants but the food was good. Try the famous rice wine. The food was ok, original Vietnamese, but you can also have this at nearby restaurants.

A cheerful waitress with very good English brought us upstairs and had us seated. Liked the setting: we took off our shoes and sat on a wooden platform, very intimate.

The catfish spring rolls are rightfully recommended, best spring rolls I tasted on my trip. Got the ostrich pan fried w butter which was quite good. Sadly, the pork ribs were a big letdown. They looked promising, glistening on the plate, but were very tough, any zi char stall back home could beat it. Saw a good mix of locals, especially the younger crowd, and tourists.

We enjoyed this restaurant, it had a nice relaxed atmosphere on the evening we went and the food was delicious. A bit confusing that they refer to some dishes as tapas, but overall a really enjoyable dinner where we got to try some delicious new dishes.

Asked for place indoors to eat and went here. Set over 3 floors be prepared for a climb. Need to take shoes off you and choose to sit cross leg or with feet über table. We had sting rolls to start, these were excellent and not at all fatty. We had special fried rice, chicken with cashew and a shredded pork. Food very nice meal for 4 with drink less than £20. Good safe place to eat
