We also offer other traditional Vietnamese dishes and cook with fresh local produce and authentically sourced spices to give you the "real" taste of Vietnam.

Been here a couple of times and would have no hesitation in recommending it. Wide menu and good selection with meals suitable for my Gluten intolerant wife. BYOB at £1.50 makes life very easy. If you like Vietnam cuisine please go.

This is an amazing authentic restaurant. Food is amazing, the owner is brilliant, have been a few times since it first opened and have enjoyed every time. Also great that you can bring your own bottle.

Wonderful food full of surprises. Had lotus rice cooked in lotus leaf with chicken and accompanied by bean sprout salad. Finished with coconut ice cream and lotus tea. Yum and reasonable prices.

Fantastic food. Fresh and very flavoursome. Service can be a little slow on things like water for the table or extra cutlery etc but staff are lovely. I had the lotus leave dish with chicken... truly the best meal I’ve had in ages. BYOB too.
