really nice little restaurant in Griffith ACT. Ignoring the volume of human chatter, which for me was no big deal, the food was inexpensive and in large servings. The curries were absolutely delicious.

We just dropped in as we were in the area, and were lucky to get a table in the quite full and smallish restaurant. It was a-buzz with people, and so not really the place to go with hard-of-hearing people, but it also made for a very fun atmosphere. Really, it's all about the food, which was very generous and...

The food is beyond belief with a superb taste of Vietnam. The service is excellent and the decor is a scream.

This restaurant is highly rated by comments hung on the walls within the restaurant. It has quite an extensive menu and is BYO. No alcohol is available for sale by the restaurant. The meals were tasty and service was quick. Noise levels were high, fairly typical for Asian restaurants.

This restaurant serves amongst the best Vietnamese food in Canberra. Everything we ordered was fresh and tasty, and arrived not long after we ordered it. The quality of the food is attested to by the multiple hand-written comments placed on the walls, mainly from federal politicians past and present. There is even a vegetarian menu (but only one of the... More

We tried out this restaurant last Sunday, after reading lots of good reviews about this. We drove all the way from Canberra's north to this place. Service is really good! Food, sorry, I have to say average. Not impressed at all. Plus the price is not cheap. Don't think we would go back again.

The food here is always delicious. The service is also very helpful and efficient. One of the best vietnamese restaurants in Canberra. It is minimal in decor and can be noisy when packed. So not the place for indepth conversation.

Tan is amazing, he was very welcoming and excited to point out who was who's signature that line the walls of the restaurant. We agreed for Tan to choose our meal and we were not disappointed by his choice. This seems to be a very popular restaurant and i would recommend booking, we were there early and were lucky to...
