    Loved our meal here. We had Bau buns for starters and Crispy Rice, Diced Beef and Roast Pork and Apple - all were really good. And a glass of Turkey Flat Rose and a Vietnamese Beer went perfectly. Service was prompt and super friendly (took our 15 year old with us who also really enjoyed it!). Great Value.

    Unfortunately our experience was well below expectations set by reviews left for this restaurant. We waited 30 mins for drinks and our first selection. Considering we had to be out within 90 mins, not a great start. The food was piling up on the pass behind us with one waiter valiantly trying to take orders and serve inside and out. Food quality was way below what was shared on the website and was lukewarm. Needless to say we could have been on an off night. But we did hear diners around us saying the menu was different to last time. We won’t be returning and will not be recommending this restaurant unfortunately.

    Seriously, the food here is amazing, as well as the atmosphere. I’ve been here twice now and it hasn’t disappointed. If you’re looking for a great vegan meal, try the Hanoi Stir Fry Noodles made vegan. Absolutely delicious. The Hot Chi Minh cocktail was also great!
