This intimate café style restaurant is one of our favourites - the food is spectacularly fresh and so tasty - Great vegetarian options (and several of them). BYO, so it is great for a cheap but very satisfying night out. Make sure to book as it is very popular!!

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Brisbane. The Vietnamese food here is delicious and the pho is delicious. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Very affordable, fresh and probably the best I have experienced in Brisbane or anywhere else. Service was attentive and friendly. Although a busy Friday night we did not feel they were... More

We enjoyed the eggplant & pumpkin dishes which were generous serves, light & tasty. The rest of our group had pork & seafood dishes which all agreed were delicious. There is a good variety of vegetarian choices for both entree & main on the menu. The service was friendly & efficient. BYO wine available.

Bland. Pretty much. Rice paper rolls...bland. Curry... Bland. Vietnamese food is meant to be exciting.... Big flavours and contrasting textures.... ...and the hair in the curry? Thanks for that. Put me right off my meal. No offer to replace the meal when it was pointed out to wait staff. They did take 10% off the bill.... But I'd barely eaten... More

The meals - The Pho was almost as good as on Hang Trong in Hanoi, and that's saying a lot! The Saigon Pancake was nice, light and fresh and the Chicken and Lime leaves was the winner. Good sized serves and reasonable prices. Service was good, attentive staff and great waitress. The atmosphere was almost genuine, as in Viet street... More
