Was told by a friend in Berlin about this place. It was awesome. Food was fresh and delicious. The waiters were helpful and friendly. The beers were cold and the feel of the place was excellent. My girlfriend and I are only in Berlin for 4 days but will be making our way back there!

I can't understand why this place is always full. I've eaten here a couple of times thinking I might have just been unlucky. But after the 3rd and last time I visited I just think the people who go there haven't a clue. The service is awful and the food is worse, but the place does look great. It's a... More

Service wasn't great. Not sure anyone really enjoyed the food. Very large bowls stuffed full that possibly hid the fact there wasnt much going on. The beef soup was very bland. the Vietnamese coffee was easily the highlight for all of us.

Hi, this is a nice spot to stop. A small little, cosy place, where you can enjoy nice, fresh, homemade Vietnamese cooking. Watch out for the daily offerings and if you have a Faible for tea... that is also a recommendation. I like to sit outside in summer... as you experience the Prenzlauer Berg as it is. The guys are...

Small cosy restaurant in Prenslaur Berg, East Berlin. This was our introduction to Vietnamese cuisine and we loved it. Food was tasty and well presented and the staff were very helpful.

Neighbourhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
