Vietnamese? Not even a bit! Entrees of tiny prawn sticks & 'spring rolls' like deep fried wood. Fresh asian greens? None! Mains swimming in thick amorphous goop made of cornflour & stock. Never again.

Menu had enough choices, but the food was a little bland, I was hoping for lots of spice and flavor but it was quite dull. I probably wouldn't go there again unfortunately. And no Cider!! :(

Very disappointing food. Cold steamed rice, mixed vegetables completely raw, sent back but no improvement. Beef and ginger in a gluggy tasteless gravy, all completely inedible. Amusingly the kitchen staff had to have the uneaten vegetables taken out to the kitchen to be inspected! Such...More
