Don't go here when it's to busy. You can wait for hours and you really have to have a lot of patience and tolerance. At least 3 tables (after me) got served first, even though I ordered something small. They kruipt assuring me it was coming. Lucky I didnt plan anything later. Good enough food though. Wouldnt recommend it when... More

We dropped by yesterday looking for a place to have a quick evening meal. The food choice was huge! We got great recommendations from the waiter. The meal was very satisfying. We enjoyed the place so much hat we came back today to try other meals here. Still happy, still satisfied. Great restaurant, we will definitely recommend it!

Food was ok , but not that special. The service was pretty bad and extremely slow. Better go to 41 , Ho Lo or to the one in front!!

We ordered a coconut and a glass of wine. 2 minutes after our food. 20 minutes later... we had repeatedly asked to bring us our drinks...we didn't order any exciting cocktails!? The waiter came 2 to ask what... More

Since the place is crowded, the waiter is always in a rush and he bumped into me 2 times once bumping into my chair and once hitting my head with a tray.

Honoustly we had the best food in vietnam until now... the fresh spring rolls, papaya salad and crispy eggplant were all great!!! Beer is only 3000 and good, only not very cold.. but that's alright i guess for the price. Great value!

Thank Eline_000
