Delicious Vietnamese food with varied and extensive menu choices. The stuffed pancake with tofu and veggies, the tamarind noodles, and shrimp curry were all full of pleasing and complex flavours and portions were very generous. Outstanding value and a fun atmosphere.

The service was good but the food was disappointing. Very average. We also felt extremely hurried out… so they could refill our table. Will not return

Finished our weekend of WOW at this beautiful little Vietnamese restaurant. There’s a few steps in the entrance and I’m unsure if there is an alternative access for those with mobility issues. Bright coloured shades hover over a mixture of tables for 2-8 and could easily accommodate larger groups.
The menu clearly describes each item and the meals deliver in flavour.
We started with 2 tasting platters - the vegan and the traditional and these were perfect samplers of what was to follow.
The drinks were also well made and the service was perfect.
This gorgeous little restaurant was a highlight on a weekend of highs.

We were a walk in with no booking, but they fit us in and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Then the food, oh my, the food was sublime! I has the “Sizzling Shaking Beef” and it was one of the nicest meals I have ever eaten. Our group all loved their meals, but I didn’t try theirs, because I didn’t want to share even a bite of mine! I will 100% be coming back.

Went with wife and friends 10 days ago. We all enjoyed our chosen dishes. Tried their soft shell crab dish, excellent. However, my portion only had two pieces while the menu said three (wife did get three pieces). My wife and I both had the salmon two ways. Very generous portion and perfectly cooked. Flavor was awesome. Good selection of interesting cocktails and beers. Note; they put a surcharge on credit card payments.
