“good experience”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We visited the restaurant twice this week . The staff is polite and courteous tho they failed to make out i was repeating 'my first experience of vietnamese cuisine' within a week. The portion size is very good.The prices r reasonable by comparison with other similar places.There were many south east asians so i think the food must b authentic. Anyway for me ,the food tasted very good .
Order lou (steamboat soup) only if u r a very patient person. It is cooked on the flame under the steamboat dish ,on a nearby table after showing u the raw ingredients - rather like 'Birbal ki khichri',and after half n hr u start regretting why u ordered it. Strangely it was lukewarm when served . Better to cook it in the kitchen in 5 minutes and bring it piping hot. Meanwhile u r served fried saltless vietnamese 'papad' nonstop . On the 2nd occassion we were also served salad -once. The salad comprises of TWO tiny 1cm x0.5cm cubes of something ,maybe cucumber & carrot.
The mains & grills were all excellent. The lamb chops in gravy ,& grilled basa were excellent. The noodles with lamb gravy on top is a meal in itself . The waiter did try to tell me that they wont go with the flavours of the main dishes . I realized that later that u need sticky rice to enjoy the flavours of the dishes properly.
The round tables r not waiter friendly. The wine glasses and the orchid restrict ur view especialy in the dim lights and u keep moving them both to hold a conversation with the person sitting opposite. The restaurant has a very international feel. Wish the waiters could pronouce the names of the dishes .

“good (and different) food”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

If you're not familiar with the cuisine (vietnamese, etc.) just ask the folks at the restaurant. They were very helpful in helping us order. Both in terms of portions & variety.
A pleasant change from the "Indian chinese" type that one gets served in most restaurants.

“Excellent taster menu”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

I have eaten here 3 times and highly recommend it. Each time I have chosen the taster menu, which is good value and gives a variety of food, either veg or non-veg. The make-up of the menu and its presenttion has changed over time, and it remain a favourite. You my need to explicitly ask for it, as its not in the standard a l carte menu. Friendly staff.

“Well balanced menu lovely wine list.”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Very attentive staff. Great menu and lovely ambiance. Next door is Blue Bar for pre or after dinner drinks and very buzzy place with a hip well dressed Delhi evening crowd.

Reviewed July 3, 2012

This Vietnamese restaurant serves some excellent food. True to its saying on first page, dishes were unique in taste and presentation. Service was great.

Do visit the Blue Bar next to this. They have some amazing cocktails and its fun to have a drink or two outside next to the lawns.
