We got off to a great start at the beginning of the meal. The starters were excellent,everyone tucked into the seafood and was very happy. The main course however did not live up to expectation. There seemed to be too much of it, the presentation did not induce the desire to eat it and generally it was quite disappointing. For... More

If you ever had a wish to be invisible, go here. Guaranteed to be non-visible to all staff so quite an experience not normally found in restaurants. We wanted to go for the "all you can eat" menu but got the idea that we wouldn't be able to order aything so wouldn't know if we could eat it all or... More

At 7.45pm on a Saturday we got a table for two. Service or lack of it was so poor we left. No one attended the table which did not speak well for future service of all you can eat menu which is not help yourself. We left after 15 minutes without any one coming to the table. Can't speak for... More

If you want decent cheap Vietnamese food in Greenwich, come to this place as you won't be disappointed. We have been here several times and left happy. They have an extensive menu, so they will almost definitely have options for every taste. From what we have tried, the best dish to go for is the pork and roast duck vermicelli,... More

Vietnamese restaurant with strong Chinese influence. We asked the eat as much as you can eat, with more than 62 options of starters, dishes, fried rices and noodles, including aromatic duck, deep fried shrimps and mixed veggie soup. Everything was fine, warm and the nicely presented. The starter and the soups were so good that we did not even tried... More

This is a great restaurant in my local area, and I've eaten here a few times. Other reviewers have said there isn't much different between this food and some other Chinese restaurants, but in the area this is the most authentic and best tasting - you just have to know what to order. Rather than buying something you could buy... More

Staying in Greenwich

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
