A great place to eat when you don't know what you want. Great tasting food and friendly staff. Usually very busy but take away option is available. Snow pea and cashew chicken, beef black bean, and beef peanut sauce are all delicious.

We had breakfast here one morning. It is situated just behind our hotel { the Mantra } so very handy. Lovely food, good service and very resonably priced.

We came here with our family visiting from the Wheat belt in Western Australia. The food was excellent. It was like we're back in Hoi An. traditional flavours. Very quick considerate and caring service. The Pork & Prawn salad alone was worth 6 stars. Thank you.

I went with a group of 11 for lunch. The food was good and the staff coped well. We used the BYO wine option which cost an extra $1.50 per head. I had the Pho, Beef Combination, and once the sauces and vegies were added, it was a great meal. Soup was around $14 and was value for money.
