“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I loved the open market feel to the restaurant. Although, likely mainly serving tourists. You can walk the perimeter of the restaurant and see all the different types of foods being prepared, as you would in a street stall. It was helpful to see the foods and ask for them during our meal.

“Good service average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

This restaurant received recommendation from trip advisor and our hotel. Although e had very attentive service the food we ordered was not as good as we expected. The atmosphere was interesting and the place was busy with locals. The food is prepared at side stations throughout the restaurant. I would recommend walking around and choosing dishes at that different stations rather than off the menu.

“Finally, a good restaurant!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Time after time my friend and I had decided we weren't going to eat in restaurants anymore as the food is always disappointing, not as good as street food and way more expensive. However, we were recommended this place by someone living in the city and we weren't disappointed. The setting is beautiful, the food is fresh, the choice was so varied & it was cheap. We paid under £10 for 3 courses and a soft drink and it was all amazing. I would definitely recommend!!

“Not impressed with the atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This restaurant came highly recommended by my sister who came on earlier holiday trip. Yes, there is the viewable cooking at the perimeter as mentioned by many others, but it not spectacularly interesting nor delicious looking. So we just sat at the table and order from the menu.

We ordered the Beef Pho (as expected) and the Filet mignon came with fries, a baguette, and some vinegary sauce in a separate small bowl. As there is very little sauce on the beef, I was wondering how I could eat the baguette? dipping into the vinegary sauce does not seem right.

The waiter was attentive but not conversational. The atmosphere is not relaxing, we quickly eat and leave.
