A family dinner of 9. I have eaten here in the past and found it great so I was happy to go. I found it has slipped in how good it is. The food was very much average these days just the quality wasn’t there...I wasn’t impressed I hope they were having a bad night. The staff were very friendly and obliging so that was great. I’d give them one more try!!More

Nice tidy interior, spring rolls to start and I forgot to ask for fresh ones so they come fried - still very nice. My bun-cha was a good choice and my husband said his pho was tasty. Great stop for lunch.

It's been a long time since we have been here, but the wait was worth it. Service excellent and food on the table without to much delay. When we arrived just after opening it didn't take long for the place to fill up. Will be...back soon.More

Not a Vietnamese so I can’t verify the authenticity but it’s good. The wait for the food wasn’t too long as well. The only thing is that the guy who seemed like the manager was the only person upfront serving the customer seemed overly concerned...with the phone in the restaurant. Even when he’s halfway talking order from a customer, if the phone rang he would get the phone immediately while the customer is still reading out his order. But for the price the food is fine.More

I think it serves nice noodle soup, but nothing too extraordinary compared to other vietnamese restaurants. The place is quite cramped and can be full so it's best to make reservations or wait for few minutes.

Enjoyed the fresh spring rolls. Was a little disappointed with the pancake after recently returning from Vietnam this didn’t really meet expectations. However my parents enjoyed both their meals. Good value for money.

We have our lunch quite often and always tasty. The staffs are friendly and seems to be recognizing our face gave us a friendly smile. We did not enjoy as much as lunch time on some Friday and Saturday nights, because group of young people...were very noisy. The food are delicious and the service is quick and priced friendly.More
