I came hungry to this place ready to eat and dine. It wasn't even crowded. Very hungry i ordered a starter and a main course. But my food NEVER arrived. After over an hour of waiting. My patience was up and my tummy was growling. When I said that I was leaving they just shrugged their shoulders. In the meanwhile... More

Very nice place. Friendly staff that liked to tell me about their food and drink. The vietnamese coffee was exciting. The lunch menu was very good value. Tasty, big portions. We had scampi noodles (spicy, very good, many prawns), fried rice (yummy!) and spring rolls (not that good, think the oil was a bit old, but the rice was very... More

This Vietnamese restaurant does not exactly bring me back to Hanoi, but some of the food was OK, some was closer to what you find in average Chinese restaurants, and that does not suit me well. I would like much more of the Vietnamese kitchen, spring rolls with nuoc mam for instance, banh xeo, pho and other delicious food in... More

The most important thing: the food is good and not expensive. Portions of food are generous. The interior looks nice but from the outside a bit dilapidated so it doesn't attract people. The staff doesn't speak English but on the menu it is translated.

A little hidden gem for vietnamese food! There's not too manyy places in Trondheim to get vietnamese food, but this one was great. We got thrown back to our adventure in Viet Nam by the fresh spring rolls and the phở with thai basil. The portion sizes were big, I didn't have any room for dessert afterwards. The atmosphere was...

I thought the restaurant was good. After I tried, it was OK at the first beginning. But I found there was a piece of steel brush in my meal. That was totally terrible. The employee there still charged me the meal. I would NOT recommend this restaurant at all.

Had the buffet one rainy sunday afternoon, and it made my day. Great and varied food, and a tasty dessert. Lots of different people eating there, both young couples like us, elderly people and families. Came back one other time, and had a more special dish, it was nice but I`m not so happy about cilantro. I would recommend the... More

My Husband & I were treated to lunch in this restaurant by friends. The service is very good and the atmosphere is cosy. We had an cooked English dish as we wanted something we knew we would like but they have local dishes and Vietnamese food too. Well worth a visit.
