We arrived expecting a Vietnamese restaurant, only to find that the menu also includes Chinese, Laotian and Thai dishes! For our main dish we ordered the Fondue Chinoise, which was excellent - good range of meat, fish, and interesting vegetables finely prepared. The chicken based fondue stock was very good; lightly spiced, rich yet not too salty. Enjoyed a leisurely meal, dipping and cooking at our own pace. No lengthy wait to be served; staff were very friendly and helpful - one of us is gluten intolerant, and staff helped us choose with this in mind.

To be honest, from the reviews I expected more. The food was fine but by no means special and it didn’t stand out from the many similar establishments. Certainly doesn’t compare well with most English curry houses. Don’t get me wrong, its fine as it goes, but nothing special.

Level of English is challenging but other than that once you figure out the French menu yourself you're good to go. Good and clean food. And they've Thai beer (Singha)

family atmosphere with this family run business
if you do not want too salty or more hot just tell them before they cook

Being no.2 on TripAdvisor in Louviers we weren't put off by the modest exterior especially with a 4.5 rating.

We asked for an authentic meal, nothing too heavy & asked the gentleman for his recommendations. He suggested a Gourmand Chaud for 2 people followed by a duck main with rice, which we had with mixed veg.

The starter came in minutes which wasn't a good sign & consisted of a huge plate of deep fried delights. The Nems were ok, but the rest was tiny tasteless bits of fish or chicken wrapped in huge amounts of undercooked of batter, most of which we left. Ready to tell them our thoughts, when they came to pick up the plates it was a quick 'terminate', pick up the plates & disappear in 2 seconds... Oh, well hopefully the main will be better...

Hmmmm, the plat principal was a salt fest. Loaded in soy sauce the veg was 90% bean sprouts with a few frozen peas and a sprinkle of carrot & about 6 pieces of tiny broccoli. The duck was some ready cooked slices chucked into some goo. Dreadful wasn't the word.

I'm giving it 2 stars only because the house wine was OK, the staff pleasant & he offered us a free saki afterwards (which we refused).

How has this got a rating this high on TripAdvisor with 50+ ratings, I don't know. The first time it's ever been this far wrong..
