Fusion Vietnamese foods are really tasty and somewhat healthier maybe. Pho doesn’t come with condiments like mint leaves, etc. Turmeric fist rice plate and noodles are good with somewhat spicy kick.

Family of 4 came for a late Sunday lunch. We tried the ginger fish soup (wonderful), fish sandwich (disappeared rather quickly), vegan salad (excellent - even the kids liked it) and more. Highly recommended - Light and fresh. Also liked the decor!

We went here because we were staying in the Travelodge virtually opposite, wanting a quick snack. But were amazed at just how tasty their fish sandwiches were, #41 and 44 I think. Also good service and reasonably priced.
