We went here based on the reviews on TA. Definitely a popular spot. Most of the tables were full and we were lucky to get a table immediately. Our first night in Vietnam and our first experience with Vietnamese food. We went by the recommendations of the lady that served us.
Papaya salad and white rose dumplings for starters. The salad came to our table two mins after ordering which made me wonder about the "fresh" bit. The flavours were unusual and interesting. The white rose dumplings were nice but nothing to rave about. Our mains include prawn curry, stir fried morning glory and tuna steak. The curry was delicious. The morning glory crunchy and a perfect side but the tuna steak was just ok. Too full to try out the dessert.
The service was decent but clearly impersonal. I think they are too busy to give any personal attention to you or even make an effort to know what you like. I asked the waitress if this is the kind of food they ate at home or was it tempered down to suit western tastes. She did say though that they do like with chillies. And while there was none in our food, she then got us some freshly chopped red chillies on the side for us.
Going by all the reviews though, this is definitely great Vietnamese cuisine, but I think I would probably prefer a smaller place where I would get more interaction that would help us to understand the cuisine and it's flavours more.
